Afternoon Eds and Reds,

Off topic slightly but wanted to get the opinions of everyone.

With all the talk of centre forwards and English players, I wanted to know who is everyone's favourite English centre forward of their generation?

To get things started mine would have to be Shearer for his finishing and power. As a well rounded CF I can't think of many as good, other than Rooney. Was torn between Shearer and Fowler but didn't want to seem bias.

Thoughts Eds or reds?

Fowler by a biased mile

Always liked Ian Wright too

im going for fowler and i'm not being biased either , i chose him because he was a natural goal scorer and he was never given that much credit for scoring with his head , he was really good with his head i always use to think to myself if he was ever going to get the credit he deserved for scoring all his headed goals , he never did and some of them were really good headed goals

Shearer, Fowler or Owen in his younger days, I really can't decide between the two.

Cheers for your replies lads.

The reason I went with shearer over fowler is because for all round CF play, finishing, heading, strength, link up play. He was also great at a set piece of any kind.

Fowler for me was more of a ST with natural finishing, dribbling, pace and wizardry! He was better than most give him credit for with his heading.

Quite different players but equally as brilliant.

Also my parents didn't appreciate me crawling around the living room trying to sniff the skirting boards when we scored! So if I was actually being biased it's because Robbie got me the belt and rations, thanks god.

I've seen them all - Roger Hunt, Ian st Jihn, Toshack, - the lot and by far and away the best one we ever had was Robbie 'God' Fowler. By a long way.

Fowler but away from Liverpool I love watching Le Tissier if he cut out the Kebabs and beer he would have been even better.

Ronaldo, O Phenomeno. Simply, the greatest striker I have ever seen in my thirty plus years of watching football. Simply Breathe-taking!!!

Always liked Sheringham, clever footballer and always popped up with big goals. Being a Liverpool fan though have to go with Fowler, just deadly, have yet to see a striker as clincial as Fowler in his prime, English or otherwise.
