Strike Partners
« on: January 31, 2020, 01:41:21 PM »
With James Wilson joining Adam Rooney at Salford City I wonder if in a couple of years they'll be winning the RAW Championship title!!!  Got me thinking about my favourite ever striking pairing.  I loved fact that the B&B duo Carlos Bacca and Cedric Bakambu used to play with each other at Villarreal. 

Any personal favourite yourselves??

Very few contenders from an AFC point of view which is why (I assume) you didn't post this in the AFC forum. I enjoyed watching Suarez and Sturridge at their peak a few years back. They scored some amazing goals.

 As far as the Dons memory goes - Harper/Archibald,Shearer/Paatelainen.Cant think of anything since then.Always thought Lovell/Miller might have worked,but it was rarely given the chance

 Never got into Euro fitba.In England Keegan/Toshack,Rush/Folwer,Cole/Beardsley.  Lost interest down there after the silly money came in

Given time Nicholas and Gilhaus would have taken some beating from an Aberdeen perspective.
Unfortunately their time playing together up front was all too short

Magoo/Black wasn't too dusty


Harper/Jarvie


Elsewhere Dalglish and Rush was probably the best I've seen in person, but much preferred Sharp/Gray over at Goodison

 Cole and Yorke,thats it. I knew Beardsley wasnt quite who I meant,though he and Cole werent too shabby either. Cole and Yorke were almost a goal a game for a while

Keegan and Toshack, Rush and Dalglish, both were beautifully natural fits.

Graeme Sharp and Andy Gray, produced the goods at the top level in England but couldn't get much of a sniff for Scotland because of the talent we had available. How striking times have changed!

If I had to pick a dream team for Scottish history, would go Dalglish and Charlie Nic. They two together would've produced major magic.

Would love to pick Joe Jordan, who, assuming he would've found the same telepathic wavelength as Keegan and if he'd played 100+ games with him, may well have been better than Toshack and been recognised as the best front duo of all time.

At the best team of all time however, they have a best trio!

Firmino is the MVP in that frontline, with probably Jordan Henderson overall as the MVP for the record breakers.

Cole and Yorke

That was my thought too, Rocket. What a pairing.

I always wanted to see Kennet Andersson and Sean Dundee together in real life only because I always bought them on Sensible World Of Soccer on Sega Megadrive!!
