I thought he was out injured longer than he actually was. Last played against Man City.

It was a bit of a throwaway comment based on a feeling rather than empirical evidence. Versatile, pacy and has an eye for goal but I don't feel he is enough of a 'footballer' to warrant regular first team starts. He's a bit clumsy, suffers from lapses in concentration in defence, lacks the ability to pick a pass and at his worst regularly fires crosses into the crowd. A player without a position.

A quick look at our results without him in the run in show that we won 3 and drew 1. Scoring 11 and conceding 7. I can live with that!
