    With the scintillating football we have been playing recently and our almost unplayable at times front four of Elyounoussi, Edouard, Forrest and Christie I got thinking is this the best front four we have had? Apart from the invincible season I haven't seen us so devastating. However the 2016/17 frontline was something else. Sinclair scored 25 goals and was unstoppable for most of the season, Dembele was our best striker since Larsson for me and Patrick Roberts was the most skilful player I have seen in a hoops shirt in some time. Add in a fit and firing Tom Rogic and it was a devastating combination. So the question is simple- who would you prefer:

    Elyonoussi
    Edouard
    Forrest
    Christie

    Or

    Sinclair
    Dembele
    Roberts
    Rogic

    The Invincible season still has a bit to go to be surpassed

    Early days still though...

    2016. Unless someone has a season like Sinclair had then it'll stay the same.

    2016.

    It was scary how good Sinclair was his first season.

    I would say Forrest made a bigger contribution than Roberts did that season.

    The way I remember it, Roberts only made the odd appearance as a starter and more often was coming off the bench until the last 9 or 10 weeks of the season, when jamesy's form and fitness dropped off. He was pure quality for that spell though.

    I also seem to remember Moussa missing most of that last quarter of the season after doing his hammy against the huns in the semi. could be wrong, that's just how I recall it.

    A bit premature as the 2019 frontline haven’t won anything yet and didn’t make the CL.
