Luke Moore Gunning For Goals

Luke Moore Gunning For Goals

Luke Moore is gunning for goals!

The Villa striker is looking to add to his pre-season tally of four in tonight's game against Stoke.

The Villa academy graduate and hot prospect told the official site:

'We've certainly got a few options up front. We've got plenty of pace, power and quite a bit of skill. So you would expect us to score a few goals. That won't happen unless we work hard though and I think everyone worked hard on the tour. That's the most important thing. All the strikers know we have to be playing well to have a chance next season, but that's exactly what the manager wants isn't it.'

Adding: 'He wants options and competition for places and if you're going to do well in the Premier League, that's what you need. And you don't just need options in your starting line-up. If you look at the attacking players at the club now, there'll be options on the bench. So it's up to whoever starts against Liverpool to do a good job, otherwise there are players waiting to take over.'

Can't wait to see who Martin O'Neill starts with against Liverpool, with Moore being the one amongst the goals, he would surely be the most disappointed not lining up with Big John Carew who I assume is an automatic choice at the moment?

About time we started the Dwight Yorke (new york new york) song for Luke Moore!? Its up to you, Luke Moore, Luke Moore, la la la la la la , I'll get me coat.

I can see it now, Luke banging the goals in, an England call up and Jermaine Defoe admitted to casualty to have the splinters removed from his backside! UTV!!!

If he is a regular starter he will score goals, theres no doubt of that in my mind. Wish MON would tell me tho, coz I need to know whether to pick him for my Fantasy team! lol

Luke will become a major name in football for years to come, he has natural goalscoring ability, he has just been a little laid back in his appraoch to things (O'Leary syndrome), but MON will get him buzzing and in the right frame of mind, mind you looks like he already has !!. He has the ability to become as good as, and I believe better than Defoe. Watch him go.........and forget about all those doubters who kept harping on about SWP and Defoe, our forward options are very good. Bring on some defensive cover now.

Luke is quality, he knows where the goal is and can finish. If he wasnt already a villa player we would be linked to him in the transfer window.

Luke moore reminds me in appearance of a younger ronaldo. He seems to have bulked up a lot since 2 seasons ago too.

no matter how good he is somehow I have doubts about him getting into the England squad with their current manager
