For me he has to play up to as part of a duo. Either Ideye or Anichebe has to partner him.

Start with him and Bobby, then sub whichevers getting less of a sniff for the battering ram.

Not really. I said a few weeks ago if we made him available we'd get £20 million.

I'd be amazed. 12m top.  A lot of people have said Lukuku is overpriced at £28 million, yet he is only 3 months older than Saido and his record is so far ahead of Saido's they shouldn't be spoken about in the same conversation.

I find it hard to believe that a lot of our fans would rather get behind plodders or average players yet continually write off or pick faults on the likes of Berahino. OK so he is raw and has a lot to learn but the kid has great potential. Considering he'd never kicked a ball at this level before the start of last season he's done amazingly well and outshone many other higher profile players we've had. Without the important goals he scored last season we'd have gone down. All of this when played out of position on many occasions. If Brown doesn't do the business then he's our only hope goals wise.

The bloke has potential. It is up to him whether or not he fulfills it. Competition for a Premier league starting position should be massive and he will have to continue to earn it.

We're doing to saido what we did to odemwingie, sticking a really good threat on the wing. Honestly think if he played up front with ideye/anichebe he'd score 15+ He has got everything. A 1 in 4 record for us from the wing, we'd kill for varela/blanco/brunt to get that!

He's not as good as Odemwingie, who could play up front on his own, but I do agree it is a waste playing the lad wide.

Let's hope we have real wingers in our squad now and can play and nurture Saido where he belongs. This thinking that we need players that 'can cover a lot of positions' is crap in my humble. We always end up with so many emergency solutions and compromises we look a mess on the pitch as a result. Proper players for proper positions please.

Saido is a different player type to PO. I see Saido as more of a SKP type to pop up and finish off a move rather than go past two or three players to take a shot.

He's wasted on the wings.

He can't play a lone role as he doesn't have much of a presence.

I honestly believe that if we played him off somebody he would get goals.

The problem is can our team set up to play with 2 up front......

A bright spark in a dreary performance. Could have had a goal had Ideye managed to roll a five yard pass to him. Deserves to start against Spurs.

If he's any sense he'll put in a transfer request for January, I can't think of a worse team a young striker can play for. Absolutely no service at all, maybe if he has a growth spurt to 18ft he'll get on the end of some of our crosses, but until then,,,

Very good performance today.

Think he is looking more and more polished every game. I believe he will be a massive player for us over the next few years.

As a young english striker that we produced, we need to hold him in very high esteem.

Toatlly agree HampshireBaggie, he gave their centre halves problems throughout.
Good strength, movement and drive.
Very mature performance today.
Keep it up young 'un.

Good to see Irvine has faith in him. Could be a very big season for the lad, he really needs to kick on from a decent break out season and it looks like he's doing it.

It will be a very interesting challenge trying to keep him in the future. I can see him being very much the type the Rogers will come for if he continues his progression.
When the biggest clubs (and bigger $$) come, it can be very hard to say no to.

He's on a long term contract, so it'll take huge money (plus the English bonus), but he doesn't (as yet) score enough to justify a huge fee. So unless he starts turning into a 15-20 goal a season guy, I think we'll keep him.
Whenever things look bad, remember the Port Vale, Grimsby and Walsall days... not so bad now, eh?!

This is great to hear.  Also shows what knuckling down and working hard can bring to your game.

We all moaned about AI's appointment but it looks as though training is having a positive effect on players.

Carry on like this between now and January and he will be off for £20million to one of the big boys.
