Big Amo could give it some on occasion, Coop has been mentioned but I can’t think of anyone who could hit the ball as hard, as accurately and as often as The Hammer. Not even Konterman
Cooper could fair hit a ball. We also had a guy called Kenny Watson in the 70's who could trouble a net or 2.
Big Jorg can't be matched though
I’ve got writers cramp on this one, we have a manager who was superb on this front. Unfortunately it would appear our players are NOT being trained on a technical front, that seems to be second nature to German football. We still play pussy foot football.Due to my age I don't recall much of ibrox before 98' really but I'm sitting here thinking I've yet to see someone who can strike a ball like this man. Is there anyone that any bears/ettes could come up with to be close?
I'm sure a young McGregor got badly injured saving an Albertz effort in training.Ronald Koeman could whack a ball but wasn't a match for Der Hammer.
Didn't he keep injuring our Goalkeepers during training? I'm sure either Klos or Niemi ended up with metal screws in their hand after saving an Albertz shot.
And if he did hit it towards the goalkeeper he would either put him out of the game, or put him through the net with the bawIt always frustrated me that most of his penalties he hit low - and so missed some. Striking them the way he did free-kicks, he’d never have missed.
We rarely shoot from outside the box.Albertz was almost one of a kind. Whilst players with his dig are rare, I feel we lack a midfield player who can pick the ball up 30/35 yards out and have good go. That would help us against teams who park the bus because it stops the box being packed. It also increases the chances of the keeper being unsighted or deflections. Stevie G knows a thing or two about that.
