Think the stick shankland is getting is unfair. Some of his link up play is excellent and if he had a regular partner upfront to build a partnership with I think he'd be much more effective. In terms of goals I think he's a confidence player who would go on a run once he's scored a few. Realistically he's the best second best option we have just now behind Oliver.
His lack of goals have been overlooked primarily because of his holding up of the ball and winning headers. Take those away, and they were scarcely there today, then he became a total passenger.
