but Le Tallec and Moro have only been at the club since Jan this season.
Hasn't Le Tallec been with us a few years now?, fair enough he had a season away but he's played before then under Houllier, he used to be favourite over Pongo.
As for the other strikers, well, if Milan ups sticks and leaves then do we really have the quality cover. It basically leaves us with Nando as are main man (not disputing he's world class for a minute), Nando obviously needs a partner so if Milan goes who else is there.....
Cisse - To be honest i don't know to many people who where that impressed with what he'd done so far, finishing didn't look to good, made some pointless runs, never really made full use of his pace. and now he's got this injury which may take him time to recover from (will he still be as quick). Not doubting his record in France but at the same time i wasn't doubting Cheyrou's when he came over. He's still young an hopefully this injury has given him plenty of time to settle in Liverpool, i think Rafa will turn him into the player we need but ready in time for next season i'm not to sure,
Then there's the kids..
Mellor - i don't think so, not gonna cut it as a 15 - 20 goal a season player, he may have a good reserve record but he never really looked like he would set the world alight,
Pongo - Maybe a decent sub, but he's nowhere near ready. He's definetly got the pace but its using it correctly, he needs a few seasons yet,
Le Tallec - is probably the most promising out of these 3 kids, a real clever player with bags of potential but again only offering his game as a supporting striker.
So going back to the original point, yes we deffo need a striker. Someone who is gonna bag us 15 - 20 a season someone who is proven. ( Michael back maybe? ) It all depends on the funding in the summer so it may be a swap deal with Milan going one way an someone coming the other.
