He doesn't score goals full stop any moreHe does score quite a few headed goals, they are largely unmarked from within 8 yards. He can get space and get those type of goals, as soon as anyone is touch tight he flops, that's where I would bet on Dhiedhiou over Britt, when someones actually marking him
of course there is, assombalongas headers are within 8 of goal and unmarked, Deiedhious are when marked and sometimes a little further out.He's scored 16 goals with his head in the last 4 seasons, Assombalonga has scored 11, and Assombalonga has been dropped for the majority of this season.
I sadly don't think there's that much of a difference in their heading ability.

Britt doesn't head it outside of 8 yards, Diedhiou does. But then Diedhiou is 6 inches taller so I'm not surprised.
highlights of him that I have seen, his sheer size advantage over Britt he looks a handful, maybe he doesn't make the most of it, maybe Bristol play on the deck more than us, but what I've seen he's more powerful in the air and a better dribbler than Britt. Not sure he gets into goal scoring positions enough.I've just watched all 16 headed goals he's scored for Bristol City and all 11 that Assombalonga has scored for us.
Bar a couple of them, they're all much of muchness and headed in from around the 6 yard box and there's not a great deal of difference in the marking either.
That's with a huge size advantage over Assombalonga and in a team that's scored significantly more goals than ours for most of his time there.
That's not me trying to talk down Diedhiou, because if we do sign him I'd love him to bang in goal after goal from set pieces and crosses, but it was an issue raised when we were heavily linked in January and plenty of Bristol City fans were critical of his ability in that regard.
17.56% of Assombalonga's career goals have been with his head.
17.27% of Diedhou's have been with his head.
I think he's bound to be better for our style of play just by virtue of his height advantage, but all the comments from Bristol City fans are that he's not particularly effective with his head or bringing other players in the play.
A 16yo Javier Saviola was my best spot. Latterly Mitrovic and Ante Rebic playing international youth tournaments but I think Saviola tops them.maybe you should apply to be our scout, because no one there can.
My best spot was Ribery in a schoolboy international game
Going by most on here he already is and that's before he's kicked a ball. He's no chanceYou can almost guarantee we’ll make him rubbish

I've genuinely not seen or read about a player linked who anyone wants or rates. I'm not sure what people expect for free? (don't say Gayle wanting 50k a week).
Diedhou is champo ready (no getting used to league) and always looks a handful. He's actually pretty skilful for a unit. Also despite what Bristol City fans say he was player of the year last season. Its 'funny' that he's leaving so he's now sh*t.
