Gil is playing for a contract
There was a moment very late in the game he beat a man with a body feint & then played a 30 yard outside of the boot diag to Kelly (I think). The type of move you only see players like Iniesta, Modric, Kroos, Verratti etc do.

Only the top level players can pull that off. I say we offer Chelsea £20-25m for him before it's too late. He has a great chance of making the England World Cup squad come the end of the season which would only inflate his price.

He won't go under the radar either. His value will skyrocket. And of course I hope Punch isn't near the starting 11, but hope he stays due to his leadership qualities.

It's only pre season, as many would say if it were an academy kid, but yep promising indeed. When he gets in trouble technically his strength gets him through.

Was at the game, it was honestly so refreshing seeing a CM bursting forward with intent, exactly what we need.

Adds more threat to the team, opposition will have to think about something different rather than just doubling/tripling up on Zaha

Milivojevic & Loftus-cheek for midfield spots for me.

RLC could be the player we hoped Guedioura was going to be, a true box-to-box midfielder with a driving, attacking intent. We already found a DM who can pass the ball from A to B in Luka.

Now maybe we get that proverbial midfield playmaker and finally have a truly quality midfield apparatus. But, let's face it, it will probably still be Puncheon.

There is something very Geoff Thomas about him when he presses forward through the centre.

He was very good today. MoM for us comfortably. Put in a shift, is good with the ball at his feet, can pick out a pass and likes the physical side of the game. If we play this formation we do need a central midfielder to break and push forward and I can see him making this role his own. I would like to see him with Luka, and I suspect that will be the plan once we sign another CB.

Very true. I was convinced a few of his shot were aimed at random players in the crowd too. Probably a trait he learned from Bolasie

MOTM for me , I was very impressed with him . Pva , Dann , Jairo all had good games but I felt we looked suspect to midfielders making good runs to get in behind us . Ruban could be a key player for us this season

Would love that too but we all know Chelsea love their loan business venture too much.

Funny how somebody on Twitter said he was Shite? I personally thought he had a good game as did my daughters fella who is a gooner who also said puncheon is a weak link in that position

Agree. Love the bloke for his passion, but consistently hasn't performend on the pitch for 18 months now. Also think a lot of this 'one of our own' 'local boy' schtick is very over-blown. It's great to have local lads in the side, but only if their form merits it. I think he'd be a good squad member, but not a regular starter. If we continue to play Luka out of position to accommodate him then not only will be weakening our defence (luka is not a CB imho) but our midfield also.

De Boer isn't going to pick anyone because he's a local boy. This is too important an opportunity for him and he is famously tough and unsentimental.
