its a very english thing to want every midfielder to score goals, Scott Parker doesnt and i think Colback while not as good as Parker does a similar job, finds players with a pass and does the solid work no one really appreciates, not the most spectacular footballer but he has done superbly this season and does it very well.
Hes more of a holding midfielder for me, bringing others into the game and retaining possesion, again nowhere near the standard of but he does remind me a bit of Makelele in how he distributes the ball.
