There is a reason why...

Recommended Posts

It is worth remembering that Chris Brown is basically Leon Mckenzie''s replacement.

Leon : 30 years old in May - 205 games / 83 goals

Brown : 22 & 2 months - 63 games / 20 goals

We''ve made money on the deal, we have a player who appears to fit it in terms of what we''re missing rather than a poor man''s Earnshaw, and he has more potential in terms of his age.

Just another angle...

If you look at it in those terms, it looks a whole lot better. If he is in fact the replacement for Mckenzie the badge kisser and all his baggage, it could work out.

I agree he could turn out to be a decent signing.

I wouldn''t be surprised if Grant is to imitate what Pardew did at West Ham and bring and a bunch of talented ambitious youngsters to the club.

Good Post.

We need a forward who will cause the defence problems and hold the ball up for our proven goal scorer.

If he has the running and heart of McKenze, he could easily become a crowd favourite.

As I have said elsewhere, Stats mean nothing at the end of the day. What he does on the pitch is everything.

Where did those stats come from mbncfc???

It said on here and other websites only yesterday that he has scored 11 in 67 games (that is approx one goal every 6 and a half games)...  not very inspiring!!!

or are you aware of him banging in another nine goals overnight that me and the rest of the country are blissfully unaware of???

I''ve checked various sites in case I missed something.

Chris Brown in his professional career has scored 10 goals on loan at Doncaster, 1 on loan at Hull and 9 while at Sunderland.

Contrary to my maths skills shown on another thread, that makes 20.

Both come from the sites CJF quoted in a thread yesterday. Most places vary a little, but I''m yet to find anywhere state that Brown has scored 11 goals in 67 games... [:D][:O][:P]

You shouldn''t make it sound like I''ve made them up...

You really are turning into "a right little rebel"!

Making stuff up to show the club in a bad light would help you fit in more, but then, like you say, you are no sheep!

Cools, cheers Pete...

That still seems fine to me as the McKenzie figure in my first post doesn''t include substitute appearances either (as far am I''m aware).

22 goals in 64 starts isn''t too bad, you''ve also got to consider he is being brought in as a target man to play with Earnie and not as an out and out goal scorer
