Jay doesn't really play in a partnership with Bowman though.My overall point regarding Jay is not in referance to his quality, its more his partnership with Bowman. The reason why I don't see him scoring as many goals is that Bowman is perfectly suited to him. The system that city played last year suited him to a tee. The games in which he played with Fisher and Seymour Jay was nowhere to be seen. I agree with your points about Bowman.
My fear is that if Bowman leaves than the style we play is compromised, which will effect Jay most. He needs a bowman type player to play up top with, as every other striker he has played alongside it hasn't worked out.
