Slow down, AJ, slow down!

Comments (5)

So Andrew Johnson has turned to sprint king Darren Campbell in an effort to improve on his already lightening speed.

Much as I admire the little man`s enthusiasm, I would have thought his big priority was re-discovering his shooting boots! A dozen or so goals on the Club`s investment of £8M is hardly a good return and more than a few of us feel that he`s already in danger of mistaking sheer speed for the genuine striker`s currency ? GOALS.

Perhaps AJ would do better to invest his money on a few lessons from Latchford, Lineker and Sharp!

Darren Campbell is well regarded in football circles. He has previously worked with Man Utd and Chelsea. I wouldn’t complain if he was brought onto the staff roster full time.

Couldn’t agree more with Dave, a striker is paid to score goals so as long as he does that it doesn;t bother me how quick he is.

What?s the point of being even faster if he?s reluctant to pull the trigger? In the second half yesterday, he was 20 yards out in front of goal and din?t even get a shot off. I?m afraid it?s his striking instincts I?d be working on, not his speed.

What you fail to realise is that he’s lost much of this speed to the recent injuries he has had.

If he can regain it, his confidence will return and with confidence come good decisions and with good decisions come the goals we ultimately need.
