    I never feel entirely comfortable with him one-on-one.

    Same with Griffiths actually.

    Great strikers but their finishing isn't top notch.

    At least Dembele is at an age where it can be identified and improved.

    I've no doubt he'll improve, I was just lamenting the fact he isn't a natural born finisher.

    Dembele and Griff are both natural goal scorers. Without a shadow of a doubt.

    Nah.

    One-on-ones aren't good enough.

    Aye.

    They're both natural goal scorers.

    Dembele is over rated and griffiths should be our no.1 striker

    be interesting to see if he starts the next game on Friday ahead of Leigh. If so I would imagine Leigh would probably not see his future here. Which we all don't want but a player of his quality can't be sitting on a bench tbh.

    He was poor tonight I thought and I'd certainly give Griff a start Friday, but let's get real!.

    I'm fairly confident that Dembele will be sold in Jan.

    His stock is sky-high and good offers will be made.

    Whilst it would be nice to have him around longer, it was never the plan, and I honestly don't think we need him. We have no problem scoring goals... our main frailty lies in defence!

    Take most of the Dembele money and invest in 2 solid CB's. Our team would be so much the better for it!

    What the * am I reading?

    Our team would be so much better by selling our best striker and one of our best players this season, and with the money buying two centre backs when we have a fantastic partnership growing with Erik and Jozo.

    Nurse!

    Unless it's absurd money like 25-30M, he is going nowhere.

    Dembele will not be leaving us in January.

    He fluffed an open goal and could have arguably done better overall, but he's still a young player who is improving in the game. He's had a great season so far as the main striker at a club where victory is demanded in every single game. He's already proven he can show up in big games and not even Messi scores a winning goal in every big game he plays. He doesn't deserve harsh criticism after tonight.

    Scootz is also one who thinks the Lions would get pumped by the current side so I wouldn't pay any attention.

    After the past few weeks theres no way he will be sold for anything near that kind of money. After doing so well and getting his price tag up hes starting to get his price back down again after poor performances of late
