He can protest as much as he likes, but he has failed to score more than six goals in a season in all but one of the last 6 seasons! Striker? If so, then he is a bloody useless one as 90 league goals from 330 games suggest, with 25 of those scored in 33 games for meat substitute team Quorn.
For those who can't do the maths, which would probably be 98% of the Leeds fan base, that means that if you take out those non league goals, Lionel has scored just 65 career league goals from 297 games, or 1 goal per 4.57 games!
Bloody hell, Carlton Cole is almost prolific on that basis!
Still given he played for Quorn, perhaps Nice Guy Brian should view him as a striker substitute! Let's face it, Fresh Choice For You Morison isn't going to fire Leeds to glory any time soon is he?
