I’ve done the research and this lad is a f***ing tatie.

Looks uninterested, weak, slow, touch of a priest. Awful business. No defending him.

It reminds me of the 08/09 season. Keegan was 100% correct to go, but he could have had that squad around 12th easily imo.

It’s the same again now, Rafa was correct to leave but if he’d stayed I reckon he could have made a relative success from the front three given to him and had us comfortable mid-table again. The fact we replaced those two with absolute clusterfucks of managers is what will send us down.

Excellent today. Hopefully buys him a couple more games before the inevitable.

better than recently but he was adequate, rather than excellent today. this should be his minimum standard.

Agree that he was adequate. Standard performance you'd expect from a PL centre forward, let alone one that cost 40 million.

I like him, together with Almiron and ASM I always feel better with them in the team.

Mind I used to feel like that about Shelvey, who yes had a good game(he does when we are on top)
Ashley has killed my club

Shelvey often does that when he comes back in to the team, then gets worse as he stays in.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

I like him as a player but he'll never score more than ten goals in a season. Just isn't a natural striker either technically or positionally. Would be a good foil for a decent striker.

His hold-up play was fantastic today.  Best I've seen from him.  Happy to admit I was wrong about that aspect of his game.  Still not a sharp player in the box.

The positional thing is what concerns me. He just doesn't attack the box enough. I like his general play other than that though.

I still think he can become something. Just has no confidence and would be nice to give him a break for a bit to work hard in training. Hope he has a sports psychologist.

Aye. Hardly looks like scoring, can wander offside aimlessly, then pluck a ball down from the air with a couple of defenders on him and lay it off like it’s nothing.

much better today in terms of strength, staying on his feet, holding up the ball and his passing.

just has to improve his movement when we are attacking - needs to make the right runs and also be in the box when we're attacking out wide.
