Here is a video of Stephen Fletcher that is three years old (best one I could find). It shows his profile: he is a poacher. He is not a striker that will dribble a lot and do it himself. He is a striker that can get open, and all he needs is good service. For him to succeed, the midfield needs to get penetration in the attacking third and give him a good pass.
Merci, et allez l’OM !
