Having no recognized forward for an extended period of 5-10 games would be a disaster.
Royer is a very good/excellent MLS player. Hes a natural winger and is definitely not a natural striker. Hes been pushed to play as a 2nd striker and does so admirably.
As a target striker hed get eaten alive. Its just not his game. He works best in space and on counter attacks.
Sims has never scored at any level in his life. I have no idea why people would want to see him as a pure striker.
