I do think there's a player in there, though. Like you say he's quick when he gets going and seems fairly comfortable on the ball.
Yet the stats show he was going past players more often than most players in the games he played last season which were against top clubs.

They also show he isn't pulling the trigger very often. Again I think he needs the confidence that a run of games and a few goals would give.

Reading an article few days ago which listed 10 players to watch this season, and he was on the list as someone who could catch fire this season.

Seems others have faith in him, lets hope they are right.

Nail on the head - Intensity!
He needs to get fitter, up his work-rate & sharpness. Then we might have a player of Premier League quality.

I’ve seen nothing yet to suggest he will be any better than Tom Soares.

Harsh to expect he’d arrive last season post winter break, and into a relegation scrap at afar higher level, all guns blazing. Not judging him til he’s had at least five starts this season.

I would like to see him put himself about, make life uncomfortable for defenders, get in the box and attack the ball, be it crosses in the air or along the floor......the odd goal or 10 would be nice as well.

Once again the same question.....Where is the money going to come from for your strategy ?

8 up front. Rising to a possible max of 15 with add-ons. It must be remembered that we bought the Superliga’s best player from the richest club that didn’t want to sell
