Not really sure if it’s been mentioned but i loved it the other day when someone played the ball out to him on the left, he did a little drop of the shoulder and used his pace to burst past the defender.  Hope we see more play like that as he starts to settle in 👍

Was watching this earlier. His ex teammates rate him so highly.  :aww:

So glad he’s our now.

Yep except the worst culprit today was Diame.

said that to my old man, him having that in his locker brings so much to the team overall it's mental how much difference he's made to us in such a short amount of time
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Only thing we currently have is nobody in the side to make use of his pace, the only one really able to play the ball over the top is Shelvey and he's not in the team

aye been saying the same, it's a problem in that it's a nice one to have

if we ever manage to exploit the quality and pace of his runs consistently he'll do some real damage

That combination has danger written all over it. When it happens it could be explosive. Like Gillespie and Asprilla vs Barca. Could happen against Arsenal.

As frustrating as it can be, I don't have a problem with him not always being given the ball. That would make us just as predictable as before, whereas his presence gives us that variety of options. He's been brilliant, but he hasn't really drawn too much attention to himself, which is good.

10 points, 9 goals from the 5 games he's started.

He will improve. Pre season will be useful for him IMO but it's clear he creates space and gives us something different.

Was just thinking his obvious pace works as a double threat. Not only in behind as shown today and is per normal but also in forcing defences to drop deeper against us. This brings Rondy into play more as a penalty box striker whilst also affording Perez a lot more time and space in the holes around between the lines where he thrives.

You're right Disco. I'm encouraged by him. We really needed this type of signing obviously.

He’ll score for Paraguay during this international break.  Get a quid on it lads!  O0

Don’t like our player threads getting bumped on International breaks.  Fear of injury.

This kid has me looking forward to the next match in a way that nobody has for a while and in complete contrast to the beginning of the season.
It's not just his searing pace and getting the crowd off their seats when he breaks, but the way he's changed the general dynamic of the team to a much more offensively minded unit. Love watching him.

Love how in the Radio Newcastle commentary for the Bournemouth game they get excited when we're defending the corner and the ball breaks to him on the edge of our own box. Very few players who can drive 60 yards upfield with the ball from there to win a free kick on the edge of the opposition box.

And despite the really strong wind he had the ball under perfect control, at high pace, from receiving it until fouled.

Interesting what John Hall says about him in the B&W podcast along the lines that he is being played in a reserved role to bring the best out of Rondon and Perez. Think there is an element of truth in this. Got the impression though by his comments that I don't think Mr Hall thinks he is going to be a big success. Interesting podcast by the way if anyone listens to it.
