Cristian Zaccardo for the USA (vs Italy), 17th June 2006
According to David Pleat, Brian McBride is "pound for pound the best striker in the Premier League"
Er.... really?? He scored 9 goals in 35 games for Fulham last year - some way down the goal scoring lists and the same number as Shola Ameobi managed. No one's arguing that Shola is the best striker in the Premiership by any measure, are they?
Did Pleat mean £ for £ or lb for lb?
I'm not sure he's right either way.
Why am I not surprised? Still, at least he's not Gareth Southgate.
