My biggest issue with Connolly is that he is very injury prone.  I think he will get you goals and create chances in games when he is fully fit but he always seems to be half fit or injured. 

If he keeps having a start stop run of things then its hard to get into a consistent rhythm and its also very hard for us to rely on him when he could be missing 50% of the times.

Robbie Keanes youngfella, banging in goals out the back garden, scores for fun. No keeper in mind you but still looks world class, id be a bit worried though in the last video posted to Instagram he hit the post, not a good sign at this stage in his career, probably be doing well to make DDSL Premier at this rate.

he's a 20 year old kid with about 20 starts and 4 premier league goals to his game, is that what we now decide is "consistently unable to score". god help us, people say we overhype but there are just as many who like to cut down youngsters before they've even started


I just don't think he's a natural goal scorer.

He's a good player, reads the game well, runs the channel, gets in behind defenders. He does all these things pretty well. But he needs too many chances to score.

That's just my opinion.

Last season, he scored 2 goals against Spurs in October, he didn't score again until the the end of the season at the end of July.

He's very similar to Shane Long.

Fully agree with HB. 

He lacks the killer instinct 
l hear you are a racist now, father ?

Tp has more technical ability. Connolly is further along the track at this point. 

Have the making of a decent front 2.

what Klopp said. Highlighting rather than praising, but it’s good to
Know he can cause trouble for big teams

Speaking after the game, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised Aaron Connolly.

He said: "You have to drop at the right moments because (Connolly) is running through the gaps so it is quite difficult.



You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

He’d a very good game by all accounts it was a bit of an odd one that he was taken off?? I didn’t hear anything but did Klopp praise him too? That chance was a bad miss today I get the distinct impression that the lack of goals since he stepped up to the senior team is effecting him. thought against Finland away a few times the minute he got a sight at goal it was head down and try and rattle the net almost desperate. For a lad that does seem an intelligent player it was to put it mildly poor. 😂

Huge disadvantage for the likes of Connolly Idah Obafemi too is English football and the money in it. Walcott and Welbeck were signed by both clubs with them paying them about 60-70k each respectively to be almost rotation players. That’s the issue these lads were signed not cause Connolly and Obafemi aren’t talented but it’s just they are better short term options for now with better CVs who they can afford. 

If Connolly and Obafemi were with let’s say Hertha Berlin and Mainz midtable/lower League Bundesliga clubs let’s say they would not a hope be able to afford to pay 2 players with their CV those wages to be pretty much a rotation option they might be able to pay 20-30k a week. Hence Connolly and Obafemi or whatever younger player at said Bundesliga club getting a run as it’s in the clubs interest to promote from within. PL clubs have money to go out and buy for now. 

It’s why English players are starting to go out foreign en masse and the Germans have launched operation poach English kids don’t mind Irish players not getting chances. 
I was gutted when I heard Kelleher was due to be in Holland until Allisons injury for that reason along with Cullen at Anderlecht Kelleher going to Holland that template needs to be set for lads going out foreign to develop where it’s in clubs interest to promote younger players due to the lack of money to buy the finished article.

Connolly is 20. Rather than trotting out the tired aul... Give him time. He's finding his feet... Maybe we just have to accept that goal wise, he won't be much better than Shane Long or Kevin Doyle. 

From what I've seen of him over the last year he's missed chances that show he just doesn't have that goalscorers instinct.

That's ok though, as he has plenty more to offer besides goals.

idiotic thinking. they are the unusual cases, most strikers don't become prolific til their 20's. i keep saying it, but harry kane, 3-4 underwhelming loans at connolly age, and didn't break through in spurs until he was 22/23. look at him now, if he was irish you would have written him off by then 
 

Of course it is they are the exceptions like you say. You would find absolute hoards of PL attackers in their mid to late 20s that score at a reasonable rate now playing at a lower level than Connolly is now certainly and playing at Championship level or even lower we will say and not anywhere near as prolific in front of goal at 19/20/21 at that level.

Of course there are plenty that end up in League 2 too. No one is saying that couldn’t happen. 

Connolly alone and Silva Martinelli Torres Greenwood Hudson Odoi the other 5 attackers I can think of 20 and under playing for a PL side reasonably regularly. These are some of the best U21 attacking talents on the planet it just provides context.

We have a prolific goalscorer who is being ignored.

We miss a Connolly or a Morrison type player now. Not a great player but good enough to keep things ticking over.
