With his performance on Sunday against Boro, Kemar Roofe might have nailed down the starting striker job on a more full-time basis. I’ve advocated that he get a run in the team as the starting striker, as he was very effective at Oxford United as a striker, and Christiansen seemed content to start Roofe at striker before Lasogga came into the team after Chris Wood departed. Now the only hope is that if the Wolverhampton match doesn’t go the way we want it to, that TC might go back to Lasogga. At this point, I’d give Roofe the starter striker role until he either completely bombs it, gets injured, or can’t go because he isn’t fit or needs to be rested.

The movement up front caused a lot of problems for the Boro defenders, and it would be nice to see a team not be able to just swarm Lasogga and cut off the team’s ability to score.

Anyway, on to the links.
