Garry Birtles is former English striker who most notably played for Nottingham Forest. His career blossomed early when he played as a striker in great Nottingham squad that conquered Europe twice in a row. He wasn't typical English striker. He was technically gifted player, great when keeping the ball in his feet, but he was very inconsistent when it came to trapping the ball. Sometimes when he was guarded by two defenders, he could trap it magnificently, but sometimes when he is all alone, the ball would bounce from his leg like it was wooden. He wasn't always concentrated on the pitch, so that may be the reason for that. Also, he could blow up great opportunity as a result of that. He was mobile player, good at finding open space and his reactions on deflected balls were excellent. He was pretty good in the air and scored a lot of headers. He possessed precise, but not too hard shot. Also, he provided a lot of assists for his teammates with his short passes. He could also play on the wing, but he was mostly used as a striker. He left Forest for Manchester United, but he wasn't near successful there as in Forest. In his second spell with Forest, he was used as a defender. He wasn't strong for a striker, but he could endure some physical challenges. He was capped 3 times for English NT.

Just by looking at the info, I think Goal Poacher can be added.

Well, now I see that I didn't write some stuff I planned. He usually get the ball, keep it, and than give it to his teammate, he even went on sides to get the ball, and he was mostly turned back to goal. So to conclude it, he wasn't poacher type of player.
