One man who is not even a shadow of his former self is Tariqe Fosu. Last season he was a real live wire with a great sense of what he was doing, now this season he looks like a completely different player. Unfortunately, we need results right now and giving him chance after chance is not going to improve our chances of promotion, when he is not properly taking his chance on the pitch.
I think the problem Fosu has is releasing the ball at the right time, he seems to always hold on to it for too long and then end up losing the ball or putting it in a position where we don’t need it is obvious with that he needs to improve his game.
Charlton manager Lee Bowyer spoke with the South London Press about Fosu, here’s what he had to say
“At the moment it is just not happening for him. I know he is complicating the game, he just needs to get back to basics. He’s been too inconsistent. We’ve definitely not seen the player we had last season – and that’s the frustrating thing because I know what he’s capable of.
You can’t just keep letting people play, and that’s not just Tariqe I’m talking about. We have people on the bench who can make an impact now.
You can’t keep giving people chances – because we haven’t got that long left in the season. You either produce when called upon or you don’t play. That’s not just this football club, that’s every football club.”
Completely agree with what Bowyer has said there, if Tariqe does start against Blackpool he can’t mess around thinking he can take on the entire team because it won’t work and if he plays exactly how Lee wants him to play he can defiantly make good things happen in our attack, but his finishing product has been awful as of late hopefully it’s something Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson have been working on with him in training.
We all know what he can do and if he can find that form that he had last season then we are golden!
