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.

Please don't even say it  :)
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.

That smile needs to be converted into a drug and hooked right into my veins.

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.
