That's 2 well taken penalties. Looks confident and gets a good contact with the ball.  Looks like he varies which side he shoots to.  Penalty taking is not as easy as some make it out to be.

What I have noticed about him is he seems to drop back and get involved in order to get things going again. I’m beginning to take a shine to this guy.

I thought Charlie was blowing from his harris from the kick-off last night, and was amazed to see him come out for the second half.

I felt sorry for him last night, Edwards, Krov and Phillips were all awful and provided him with absolutely nothing to feed off.

He's a dead ball master but I am surprised to see how much lacking he is in pace. I think it is time for Zohore to see what he can do - and he's good at taking penalties too,

Looks unfit and ponderous, we cannot play him as a lone front man, no doubt he has qualiites and ability to score goals, but pace and first touch are not them :(

I do like Charlie, but I have to say, I think, going forward, we look more mobile and more of a threat in the final third with HRK playing

I think he wants to come far too deep as he just hasnt got the legs to keep moving from  the midfield area to the forward line. Ideally he needs to be the player the furthest up the pitch and in front of the ball as much as possible. I think everyone knows that his biggest attribute is his finishing but if he keeps dropping to the centre circle he is not going to get those opportunities. I do get the feeling though that he struggles a little with the system and being the lone man up top, would be a lot more effective if he had a second striker to play off but then who do you drop from midfield to do this

HRK gets us up the pitch further and quicker than Austin does, I'd also argue he causes the opposition defenders more problems than Austin

i think Austin isnt a lone man striker.

in a 2 i think he could be effective and if the ball drops in the box i dont think there is anyone better in the league but he has won us 7 points in the last few weeks so that alone is worth the small fee we paid for him.

Having seen the footage of him running behind the goal after scoring last night, he could do with shedding a few pounds  :o

He's our top scorer now on 8 which is decent going considering he came on deadline day at less than 100% fitness and is a sub half the time. Fair play Charlie!

I think he has genuine goal scoring instinct. Both excellent goals today. The second header very clever how he drifted inside and then back outside before placing his header in the corner.

Superb again.

I felt sorry for him in the week as I said as he had no one performing behind him. Give him the service, he is lethal.
