One finds the net once in a while but both do not know where it’s at usually and are highl paid with the worst goals per game in football

So what are the options? What is the difference between Morata and IGhalo? Yes or No.
What kind of poll is this?

At least we know that Morata is deadly with his head

I opened the thread thinking that this was about what I thought after Ighalo's third goal yesterday. Ighalo had difficulty controlling the ball because of the defender, in close proximity, missing the cross completely and distracting Ighalo who suddenly had an opportunity that should not have been there. That is a difficult ball to control precisely because of that miss in close proximity.

As for associating it with Morata? I cannot think of the opponent but last year, Morata scored a fantastic headed goal for Chelsea from a cross that few forwards would have been able to score. A defender, in close proximity, missed the ball entirely and it came suddenly to Morata in midair. He had an unexpected level of concentration and anticipation to convert. That remains one of the best headed goals that I have ever seen in years of watching football. Just my tuppence.

Ighalo had no business trying to control that ball,it should have been.on touch and a goal.Against better teams and.defenders that moment when.the ball went under his legs was enough time for them to recover and save the day. That said i have seen him score better and more difficult goal. I suspect the pitch is not as good,hence the need to control and be sure.

Possibly but doing that when a guy (in close proximity) misses is not the easiest thing. Moreover, it could have been a very wild kick similar to the stuff he did against Argentina when he struck the ball without first taking a touch.

...Ighalo scores the difficult ones example the 2 goal, while he fumbles bathe easier ones, the pk and 3 goal. Note the goalie nearly got to both.

Oga mi, he had more than.enough time to tap the ball in first time. As a defender i have found out that what separates clinical finishers from.average ones is in their ability to anticipate and be ready for all the scenarios. I see strikers who 9 out 10 would run down behind a defender expecting the defender to.miss the ball forgetting that the defender is there not to.miss. If you take a position behind the defender ,then you are expecting or anticipating the defender would miss...or how else would the striker explain his taking a position behind a defender? These are the intellectual questions some coaches ask their players...why did you take up a particular position?

Ighalo was simply clumsy with his touch it was bad control all day long prof.

Oloye,

I would not disagree on Ighalo's clumsiness as we have seen that a number of times. However, I feel that the third goal is not as simple as we may think. I do not think his intent was to be behind the defender. My thinking is he was anticipating a better cross and Musa hit the ball a tad early and the defender rushed to get it first as he had the inside lane. Remember they were not in a static position but both were in motion anticipating the cross played by Musa. The proximity of that defender to the ball was a problem as players need some distance and time to get to the ball. It is the lack of those that created difficulty for Ighalo on that particular occasion. I believe several forwards could possibly have missed that opportunity. Ighalo was fortunate that the ball was not behind or way in front pf him which could have been possible if that defender had touched the ball even slightly.

First of all, this is a very Ori eja type of poll?
How can you ask what the difference is between 2players, and make that a yes/no poll???? Makes ZERO sense.

Anyway sha, to properly answer this question, You need to explain.
IMO, The difference between Ighalo and Morata is Service. Lots of Service!

They are both high maintenance center forwards, that have mediocre pace, they both have a low strike rate, and they both need many opportunities to see the back of the net. Both are relatively poor when it comes to controlling the ball in traffic, creating their own shot, or striking on the volley.
Morata is better with his head than Ighalo, and Ighalo is more of a physical presence than Morata. But other than that, they are both relatively average center forwards.

The only thing that makes them effective is pairing them with a top class, unselfish forward/midfielder that can get them the ball in positions that allow them to exploit their strengths. Morata is lucky to have an inform Hazard around him these days. Ighala was lucky to have an inform Iwobi yesterday.

Without these support strikers/attacking midfielders, neither Ighalo or Morata are going to be effective. They need Service, and lots of it.
I really dont see why Rohr likes Ighalo, Or Sarri likes Moratta, but if it was my choice, I will not build my attacking force around either of these players.

This is the kind of thread that needs videos of Samuel Eto'o.

Eto'o once said that a striker should ALWAYS assume that the defender will miss the ball. ALWAYS!
