His goal yesterday may have been easy, however, he followed the ball, anticipated it hitting the bar or staying in play and that's what we have missed in these first few games; killer instinct and experience. Get him up to speed and on the pitch for 70-80 minutes and then full games and hopefully he'll flourish.

I noticed he was always talking to and directing the midfield telling them where they should be.
Give it a few weeks to settle down and I think we'll be fine

 ;D Reminds me of SuperKev. Has the same "tenacity" and is an in "the box" type of poacher. Will pick up the scraps or rebounds...not bad with his head either.

Think he will be a threat to defences all season...one of those you can't take your eye off when you are a defender.

Needs to get his fitness levels up ASAP. Clearly a good player with a footballing brain but he wants to get that brain (and his feet) moving into the right areas at the right time. He was blowing out of his backside after ten/fifteen minutes against Millwall.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

As good as Gayle in this league. Should score 20+ goals. Great signing.
I bear more grudges, than lonely high court judges
