Chamakh told to be selfish

Keith Millen has suggested that Marouane Chamakh might be working too hard for Crystal Palace and needs to concentrate on getting into more dangerous areas.

Marouane Chamakh: May be grafting too hard for Crystal Palace, according to Keit

The Moroccan striker has scored just once for the Eagles since making the switch from Arsenal in the summer and has now gone eight games without a goal.

Caretaker boss Millen believes the solution may be for Chamakh to try and conserve some energy and be more selfish in front of goal.

"When you look at his stats he works harder than anyone - probably too hard sometimes," Millen said in the Daily Star.

"Sometimes he does running for the team that he doesn't need to, so when he does actually get the ball he's tired. So I have been trying to say to him, 'Cut down the running and get in more dangerous areas'.

"I'm trying to get him to think about scoring goals more and be a bit more selfish."

Millen has been impressed by Chamakh's enthusiasm but recognises that it must have been difficult for him to adjust to playing for a club struggling near the bottom of the table.

He added: "I'm sure it has been a bit of a culture shock for him, coming here from Arsenal.

"He was out of favour at Arsenal at the end and he feels this has given him a new lease of life.

"When you think where he's come from, to a team that's struggling, you couldn't ask for any more."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
