It’s Goala Ameobi!

The goal machine
Alan Shearer has failed to score in his past four Premiership games, while Shola has scored three times in his.

It’s probably a statistic that will not be repeated too often and it demonstrates that the young striker has been working hard on his game.

Even so I’m still at a loss to understand why Sir Bobby and David Platt rate him so highly, as he still spends most of the game looking like Bambi on ice.

But if he keeps banging the goals in, I’ll not be complaining.

Should Shola be first choice? Have your say at the Toon Chat Messageboard
