Alexander Sørloth
I thought he did well for a PL debut today. Some nice linkups and won lots of aerial challenges. Nearly got a goal as well. Feeling a bit more comfortable with the money we paid now.

A decent debut

Mr Palace 10-02-2018 04:58 PM

Looked good to me. Some nice touches, a couple of good crosses and a good header that was saved. Good debut.

Malarkey 10-02-2018 04:58 PM

Only positive from today. Actually, the only positive since we took the lead at West Ham.

GreatGonzo 10-02-2018 04:59 PM

Yup thought he looked good today. Would like to see him and Benteke running at teams with Townsend and Zaha on the wings when Wilf returns.

Nostrils 10-02-2018 05:00 PM

Really like him. Strong, good head, hold up play and looks to linked up quite well too.

Kai 10-02-2018 05:00 PM

Looked better than I anticipated

the drexciyan 10-02-2018 05:01 PM

I'd like to see him have a crack from the edge of the box when he's running in from out wide. He was sticking to his orders today but there's a decent striker of the ball in there I'm sure.

Amazing what a bit of scouting can unearth.

If we do more of it we might be able to stop blowing our entire transfer budget on £30M / £100k a week vanity signings and build a bit of squad depth.

Martin H 10-02-2018 05:04 PM

Bearing in mind he has just arrived and at barely 22 making Premier debut with very little training I reckon that was actually quite impressive. Couple of things. He actually attacks the ball in the box. He does the defensive work as well as the attacking. He managed 90 mins which frankly is silly and why they didn't take him off after 65-70 mins I don't know. Unlucky not to score and cremated some good chances.

Thought he was great - looks very sharp. Thought it was funny when he shrugged off two Everton players with ease.

Cremated as in.....?

jobiinthelastmi 10-02-2018 05:08 PM

Looked strong with decent feet and control

Got his header on target. Needs to be central if hes going to net.

it's what Benteke does to chances

cpfc4evandeva 10-02-2018 05:08 PM

His hold up play was superb for a younger player.

dowieslovechild 10-02-2018 05:09 PM

A very decent debut, unlucky not to score.

beef 10-02-2018 05:09 PM

should give him a new contract

Looks quite tidy in possession, strong and moves the ball positively. Hope he carrys on like that.

PalaceSi 10-02-2018 05:12 PM

He was great, there's every chance this could turn out to be a superb bit of business.
