when kozak was at lazio he played second fiddle to klose. its hardly expected that he would get a look in. scored 10 in the europa i think

think kozak came off the bench for us 7 times, started once and scored 4. im not mad on stats but thats what i remember

he scored 8 goals and finished top scorer however you'd still expect him to score at least once in 30 odd games that he played.

Depends how he was played, I would imagine he may have been playing wider with Klose a one man band striker

im not sure any manager would play kozak out wide, doesnt make sense. I still dont think he'll get into double figures.

You get your best players on the pitch, it's that simple, and if that involves playing a goalscorer wider than he'd normally play so be it! Someone has already said he has a good pass on him, so I think it'd be rude to write him off just yet, he could of been the creator!

I apologise if that's gibberish as I'm a few beers through the night

he scored 10 goals in 30 matches altogether that season according to wiki. 8 in the europa, 2 in the league. doesnt say if he was used coming off the bench or full games....

10 goals at the age of 23-24 and competing for a spot v klose...... that doesnt sound all that bad to me.

In mist cases yes, as that's his native position, but some managers play a target man out wide, to get the advantage on a smaller, less physical full back. For example, Martinez playing Lukaku on the wing against arsenal, and I think they won that game convincingly, where he destroyed nacho monreal

funnily enough samaras who is about 6'5,...was better out on the wing than upfront when with celtic

I wish it was that simple. not every player can play to the best of his ability in any position.
