a striker's only aim in the game is to score imo supply should be given by midfield

Yes

But seriously, a strikers role is very difficult, it relies alot on being able to read the game very well - fantastic accuracy/shooting ablity, skills to turns defenders - make space in crowed areas etc.

What does Henry do? Runs past slow defences, (good timed runs) from an excellent pass from Pires or similar and slots the ball past the keep - hardly difficult.

That's all he does is it? Yes, if you take away all of his goal assists, sometimes when he comes back to defend, his runs from the arsenal half to the oppositions (past slow defenders, I don't think so), his wonder strikes...

That's a very sad and ignorant view in which you think that girls can't and don't play football.

Sorry but as I said in an earlier post, I don't believe a strikers role to be more skillful than that of a striker, as a foward does a hell of alot more work than a striker! Don't knock what Thierry Henry does, as he is truely magnificent on the ball, skill, pace, flair the whole works. He is by far the best player the premiership atm! And I find it hard to comprehend that I'm here at 1 o'clock in the morning debating something which seems to be more than opinion to me but fact!

lol, no I agree Henry is an amazing player. However, I think you shouldn't knock strikers, they are just as skilled in their role than forwards - its just very different.

And where'd that observation come from? A couple of girly girls who haven' a clue about football or aren't interested in playing football doesn't represent every girl!

Yeah that was an extremely ignorant view wasn't it! Both me and Xenon (if I remember from a previous post) played football! I know you were joking but it was views like yours which make many good girl players give up early!

Well thats your opinion! In my view strikers are not as skillful football players as fowards, and I'm going to stick by that opinion. However I'm not saying that strikers do not play an important role in a team!
