Is a striker only as good as his manager?

I believe so.

Every other position, regardless of the style of football does not get affected as much as a striker.

All the play building up to the forwards is a reflection of how the manager wants his team to play.

Therefore, it is very easy to flourish under one manager and look very average with another.

Look at how Anelka is dominating now.

Finally he has found a manager that plays a style of football that suits him.

Basically, playing most of the football on the ground.

However on the other side Drogba is really struggling for form.

Yes, I know he scored yesterday. But I mean in the general scope of things.

Put it this way: Drogba is the type of forward who holds up the ball well and has fantastic aerial presence.

This is how Murinho liked his football played, and Drogba benefited from this.

His game suited his managers style of football, hence is success during the Murinho reign.

Murinho’s style on the other had made Shevchenko look like had never played football.

Furthermore, I do not believe that Anelka would be playing this well if he was coached by Murinho.

Another example is Cisse.

Cisse arrived at Liverpool with a very big reputation, and was on his way to Liverpool before the appointment of Rafa Benitez.

Cisse did not fit Rafa’s style and was subsequently made to look very average and placed down the pecking order.

Cisse though has done well under the Roy Keane management.

Instead Liverpool went the aerial root with Peter Crouch, who we know is no longer there.

In a nutshell, while some strikers are just rubbish.

It must be appointed out that one must not rush to judge the value of a striker until assessing the mangers style of football.

The style may not suit the striker.

This usually happens mostly when managers inherit strikers from past managers.
