Loads of quality this guy. He'll be a huge upgrade on Ritchie provided he gets time and isn't just dropped the second angry scotsman is back.

Just nice to see someone show a bit of skill and hit a good strike. All the goals were quality, only difference is Liverpool get to see it every week because they buy good players.

He’s more confident in the box than any of our players.

I don’t want to take anything away from what looked a cracking goal from the lad which he manufactured on his own using his skill and was fully deserving to see it hit the back of the net. But the keeper stretching his dive to reach the shot leading with his right arm and not his left instead was a mistake and an example of poor goalkeeping IMO. Their number 1 would have tipped it around for a corner I’m sure. Or maybe not...

The goal is clouding judgement for me like. He does well to engineer the space for the shot, defender should have been tighter and not shown him inside from such a position. I don't know enough about goalkeeping but suspect HTT is correct, whilst maybe being harsh as it was very snap-shot.

Willem misplaced numerous passes throughout from the edge of our third. It caused unnecessary pressure and whilst that was a common theme throughout the squad it also doesn't mean he was exempt cause he scored a half decent goal.

Defensively looks fairly solid, good tackler, needs more time to bed in I think. Certainly looks a long shot more ready than Krafth.

Pet hate: People going on about the use of his weak foot in this instance. He's had one intention and that was to engineer a shot on goal, he achieved it and achieved it well. Any player at Premier League level should be hitting the target from there. That's not to say it wasn't a good goal, it was just good for his creativity to make and take the chance, not to hit it with his wrong foot.

He was nowhere near as effective as Ritchie today from a more wholeistic point of view but nor would I expect him to be.

He looks clumsy and a liability.

Great finish.

There's a reason why he's at nufc at not at his current club.

I’ve seen enough the last two games to think he’s an upgrade on Ritchie like. Wouldn’t expect much against Liverpool at the best of times but thought he was excellent v Watford.

Wrong on all counts. Against a shot destined for the top left corner, the keeper can reach higher with his right arm than his left arm which is underneath. And the power on the shot would have made it very difficult for any keeper in the world to tip it round the corner.

Odd bunch here. He constantly tried to make things work in an attacking sense and made some good challenges etc. scored a goal showing 0 fear like many of our players do and you still find a way to criticize.

They're not ready to give up on their assertion that he is fat and slow and another cheap rubbish signing.

Thought he performed really well in a tough game away at Liverpool.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

My good mate is a top-class amateur ‘keeper and he says poor goalkeeping. Mind he was drunk...

He absolutely had to go with his right arm there - if you twist your body in the air, you can reach further (literally, the width of your shoulders). And if you're right handed, you'd train that skill especially, because even stretching with your left wouldn't be as strong.

It's funny, before the goal I was going to mention that he hadn't been in the game much, but he has some real quality about him if we can get him bombing on a bit more. A lot of that goal was down to him, fabulous footwork.
