'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Delfouneso - 'I Should've Had Two'

Nathan Delfouneso has said he was overjoyed to get on the scoresheet in last nights clash against Blackpool, but he still doesn't understand why he had a goal ruled out.

Speaking on the Official Site Delboy explained he was pleased he was able to grab his goal given the disappointment he felt following the referee's ludicrous decision to cancel out his true opener and his failure to find the net in our last match.

'It was a proud moment for me getting another goal in the Premier League, but the main thing is that we got the 3 points.

'Personally I felt disappointed that I didn't get a goal at Fulham, especially with the chances I had, I felt I should've done better.'

He certainly had the chances to bury Fulham and whilst he kept getting into the right positions he just didn't quite look sharp enough. He looked a lot better last night, but it's clear if he keeps getting into the right positions the goals will come and last night should've done his confidence the world of good - although the substitution was a little strange.

'I was determined to get a goal against Blackpool, I thought it might not be my day again with the goal that got disallowed. I thought it was perfectly good too. The referee said I pushed him but I didn't have a clue where that came from. Thankfully I got the goal not long after, it would've been nice to get two, but we got the win in the end and that's the main thing.'

First of many for Delboy you would hope. He hasn't had the greatest start to the season so far but it looks like it's coming good for him now. He just has to ensure he keeps working hard and getting into the right positions and if he keeps putting them away then he'll give Houllier a nice headache.

nothing at all wrong with the first goal, the ref was woeful
The Fear
sorry but you wrote not had the best starts to the season?? thats such a mystifying comment

Keep playing the Fonz.There is no one else (other than Weimann) with the potential to start banging them in. Carew is fading. Gabby is not a true sriker - has other strengths but a bit hit and hope. Heskey is Heskey. The Fonz might be the man with a run of games. I say give him that run.
stennyvilla
i agree that Fonz is our best natural striker. His main drawback is his lack of heading - he rarely wins the ball in the air - I watched him last night and he failed time after time.
4thevilla
The way we play he needs to win the ball from clearances and hold it up - there's little sign of that happening. I like him as a striker but it's a part of his game he must improve. He's also less mobile than many. He watches the ball instead of moving to receive it. I'm sure he'll get better with experience and coaching - I was glad he got his chance and finally scored after Saturday's match when he missed too much. A good prospect and I hope the coaching staff can develop him.
4thevilla
'He may not win many balls in the air from long clearances, but watch his heading ability when crosses come in.' Yes, krfeskivilla, that's what makes a striker. We're all forgiven for forgetting what one of those is and what they should be good at. Striker is differrent from target man. The Fonz should be developed towards striker, not hold-up play.

Disgraceful decision! It was a brilliant goal from a great chase and wonderful cross! The young lad should have had 2 by his name and scored me more in fantasy as well :)
AdzVilla
Agreed Witton Lane...Heskey is a target man. Del Boy is a striker, and JC WAS a bit of both, but sadly, not now.
krfeskivilla
Gabby is a bit of both now too with him developing his strength, Gabby does win alot of 'target' balls and with him playing alongside Delf i can see us getting a lot more goal this season. Goodbye JC and thanks for your efforts SNLR.
Charizma
Took his goal well, and agree that it was a very poor decision that robbed him of notching a brace against the seasiders. He needed a goal, particularly after missing arguably three more than decent opportunities at Craven Cottage last weekend. He needs an extended run I agree. Only then will we truly determine whether or not he has what it takes to carve out a successful career in the top flight.
