Sorry but the escalation in anti-Zohore feeling based on his opportunities on boxing day is out of proportion.

I'm pretty sure there's a player there which is why we signed him... but he definitely needs to put himself about a bit more and make more of what could be very limited opportunities in the team. In that formation though without any crosses going in and little pace in the team I'd definitely start him ahead of Austin.
I agree with you entirely. HRK and Austin have had more opportunities, and have both been very poor at times. I think Zohore has been overlooked because he was not a "Bilic signing" and I think the same is true of Willock. Irrespective of whether or not my thoughts are correct, one thing is certainly true, and that is that the anti Kenneth Zohore attitude expressed by some in this thread is unfair in the extreme on the basis of very limited opportunities.

At the time it was reported that the initial up front payment was £6 million with add ons to 7. I’ve seen nothing official to suggest it was much lower.
I don't think we need to worry about add-ons, given KZ's current performance levels.

Criticism based on Thursday is definitely OTT but there was a marked difference in his attitude before and after the arm in the face.


He just hasn't got any heart, I've played cricket now for 30 years, you can always tell who's got any bottle/ticker.


Ken Zohore hasn't.

I thought he looked decent last night. Surely needs a run in the side as HRK looks knackered and Austin is best as an impact sub.

I agree - much more influence and heart than he displayed at Barnsley.

He was a useful sub - someone who can run down those channels and attempt to hold the ball up.

He did well, but I have still have a lot of question marks.

Might come good, might not.  His highlights reel shows quality, however, if we want top two don't think we can rely on him being the answer.    Feel another striker needed, as Slav is not sure on big Ken and seems to have come to the conclusion that Charlie isn't mobile enough to start against the better teams (i think we all knew that quite early on).  HRK's hold up play has been very good, but he may very well go on a run of 10 + games without a goal.

Most top teams will have four strikers anyway, and you could say that only Austin is a traditional center forward.  So Big Ken as part of a four is ok, as first choice? Not at the moment.

If he can’t score in this team then he never will here.

I'll defend him on this point, we don't create chances for our strikers.

I think he should continue to start for the next few games for 60mins then Austin to replace him.  He would push back the oppositions defence by 10 yards.  Currently, teams are squeezing our midfield with HRK.  4 or 5 starts can lift Zohore's confidence.  Not that HRK has been particularly bad, but Diangana's absence has affected the team's balance.

Deserves his chance after today he is more of a goal threat than HRK

Daft as it may seem I would definitely start him in the next game. I thought he did well and has pace and power that neither Kanu nor Austin can match. He also created and then tucked away his goal which I don’t feel weve seen too often and so is something new for opposition to worry about.

I think I’d read that he is a bit of a confidence player so perhaps playing him on the same pitch where he has just scored could be a smart thing to do.

Let's not get carried away he scored against a rubbish Charlton team, did nothing in the second half doesn't deserve a place ahead of Austin or HRK. IMO of course!

I don't think you're looking at the big picture in terms of how the team are set up.  We have been far too laboured and slow in the last 5 games.  More individuals with speed are required to push the opposition back. Austin never looks good when started anyway.

Not too sure about Charlie.
Kanu or Austin... Take your pick.
Prefer to start Charlie.

You can apply that to all three of our front men. HRK blatant dive against Leeds.

Without his goal I'd have been disappointed with his performance today , thought Austin was much better.

I thought he did well aside from the goal. Showed he wanted to get at the Charlton defence, but that may have been down to the inexperience of Charlton's defenders.
With his goal I was impressed with his movement and one-two with Edwards. His shot went thro the keepers legs, so its fine margins of being called a good finish or a poor miss.

Good player who has to "muscle in" a bit more.
Stop the "fairy" diving and get on with it.

How much did we pay for him? Staggering because I’m struggling to pinpoint his good qualities? Nice skin fade though..

People got excited as he looked good against Charlton resverrves. We know that is his level. Not first team champo action.

Have to agree. He's not really a classic No 9, because he doesn't win enough heading duels, and he's not really a forward running from deep as he's not speedy or clinical enough. Certainly nowhere near the Dwight Gale level.
