Calm on the ball, smart without the ball.
He is one of the missing pieces in Rafa's chess game, very neat and tidy yet quick to move the game along.
He probably a better fit in our midfield then Shelvey or Diame in Rafa's game plan as we often sit and counter.

A real holding midfielder like Gary was for us, Ki could be the decider how our season goes. (Like when Shelvey in form)

He offloads alot of the pressure in midfield build up play, allowing the wingers to stay in their positions. This in turn allows more freedom and attacking posture from our wingers. I love the fact we have 3 very influential midfielders in the team, if they play to their potentials probably no need to too worried about relegation this season.

this has just made me realise how i see it, in the last few games when Ki gets on the ball and is in control he moves the team up the pitch with him if that makes sense?  little triangles and inbetween the spaces forcing people to push up with him whereas when shelvey is in the same position he doesn't take the team with him, he sends the ball up and that often leaves us split up with massive gaps between attack, midfield and defence

again before people start i like shelvey and he's been great, i just think on this form Ki looks a better fit for the players we have
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

It's great to see Ki stepping up these past few games. He's always had great close control and dribbling skills, composure and a decent passing range, shame his potential could've taken him a tad higher than us under Ashley or Swansea...usually his issues are motivational rather than technical, he's not super physical but he isn't slow or unfit either and generally knows when to apply effort. Think if he can maintain a reasonable level of form over the winter period our next run of games could yield some good results.

Including Man United (h) on the 2nd? Bad craic if true, the games that month are utterly rancid.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.

He's brought out something in Diame too. Him and Diame link up well. Diame can be very good with his passing and movement himself and Ki brings that out.

He's been fantastic and our whole style of play has changed since he came on early in the second half against Watford.

Since that was a forced change, I would be hesitant to give Rafa credit for the timing or the way it has played out, but he is a Rafa signing and is basically giving us what we thought we were getting from the Ki highlight reel.

If anyone is bored at work reading this, contemplating "what if Shelvey hadn't got injured?" might kill a few minutes.

Good news is that Brighton and Huddersfield are going to suffer more through the loss of Ryan and Mooy. At least we can replace Ki.

They may as well be. Last season Tim Krul was backup to Ryan - have they improved on that? And Mooy probably is Huddersfield’s best player.

Ki is probably the player I look forward to watch the most today. When he plays like he did against Burnley it's just simply beautiful to watch. Hope he can keep it up today.

Ki scored and got a assist against these in a 4 v 1 win last season. Hopefully he can have the same impact against these for us today.

real quality. felt sorry for him today. tried his arse off. 
john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."
