Sorry, it must be asked. I see and hear so many stateside observers, fans and media alike, incessantly declare as fact that Jozy Altidore is just not capable of and/or not suited for playing as a "lone striker"/#9? It seems most of the time, this is part of their explanation for why the striker doesn't score as frequently with the USMNT as he does with AZ Alkmaar. I can't help but wonder what role it is that they think he plays there.
Honestly... somebody... please help a dude far away. My brain is simply not able to process this meme logically. What is the disconnect here?
