There are clearly two camps of opinion on Donaldson. Those (who to be honest seem to be in the majority) who think that he does enough hard work to justify his place in the team irrespective of how poor he is at finishing and those (including me) who think that the No 1 priority for a striker is having some ability to finish off chances and if we don't have that to start with then we might as well move on from the player and play someone else.
Either way one thing is surely blindingly obvious to all but seemingly Rosler and that is if we are going to play one up front it cannot be Donaldson.
I think you are being very generous to Rosler if you suggest he isn't being supported by Benham in his quest for another £3-4k a week striker. It was Rosler who chose to spend the budget on numerous players who aren't getting near our side - eg Fredericks and Barron, who has chosen to have 3 Senior goalkeepers and who has chosen not to loan players out (eg Reeves) .
It seems Rosler gambled that three strikers would be good enough and stay injury free and lost the gamble. Farid out long term and the other two are misfits. We are now stuck with sending a begging bowl round Championship clubs run by ex mates of Uwe to borrow the likes of Spencer. Well lets see what he can do, IMHO he can't be any worse ! We have however been severely let down by the Management team on the striker front and are likely to start dropping down below mid table as soon as we start our impending run of fixtures against top 6 teams.
I've been a big fan of Rosler up to this point but am beginning to realise he has lost the plot.
