Former Tottenham striker hits 100 days without a goal

Mestalla Valencia

Former Tottenham man Helder Postiga is suffering one of the worst goal droughts of his career.

Not many spurs fans will probably miss former striker Helder Postiga.

He scored just one goal in 19 appearances for the club not showing anything like the sort of strike rate that would have turned him into a White Hart Lane legend.

Unfortunately for the Portuguese forward not a lot has changed six clubs on, with Marca picking up on the fact the Valencia striker is currently on a goal drought of 100 days, which is amazingly just the fourth worst of his career.

“The number 9 is currently in crisis. He has not been able to find the back of the net recently, and yesterday he hit the 100-day mark. This is a rather significant figure which highlights just how serious the situation is,” reads the report.

The 31-year-old seems to have been a nearly man everywhere he’s been, showing glimpses of brilliance sandwiched in between these enormous goal droughts which he’s more likely to be forever associated with.

He started the season well with Valencia, bagging three goals in two games that led to optimism that he could carry the attack of the Spanish club before hitting the current rut that he’s struggling to get out of.

Marca does suggest that it’s not all his fault, pointing to the fact that Miroslav Dukic has set his team up a certain way, with a distinct lack of creativity in certain areas which isn’t exactly helpful for a striker trying to find the back of the net.

Chin up Helder, like plenty of strikers, one goal brings two. Here’s to hoping his current drought doesn’t rise up the current list moving rapidly towards first place replacing the 262 days that he failed to score during the 2009/2010 season.
