How old is he? He's shown enough in flashes for me to think there's no shortage of ability there, so I would like to think he will get better with more experience in this league.
26 - two years older than I thought he was lol!

I watched him in the MLS and we have barely seen anything from him. Love to think what he and ASM could be capable of with better players around them. The more confident he gets the better he will become, especially now he is playing where he should be, just needs a decent striker in front of him to open up a bit more space.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

Not convinced on his temperament at this level tbh, but he's got all the tools so I would definitely want to keep him. He could still mature into a very good PL player, some players don't hit their peak until 28+, pretty sure Vardy was a late bloomer.

lovely goal but i still feel his overall play needs so much more.

Yeah. I’ve recently had it in for him after a wee while of letting him get away with murder. One Decent goal doesn’t change my thoughts though, however I am happy for him and hope it’s what he needs. I still think he needs to nail down a position, learn it and then we’d see the best out of him. When he came on he was almost in the way of asm as he didn’t know where he should be. Longstaff looked far more comfortable in that position. Maybe both of them compete for it.



Do 7 goals in 23 in a position he’s not used to playing in count for anything?

Most of which is cup games against lower opposition. No they don’t count, he’s got 3 goals in 40 prem games, that’s the stat that counts.

Besides, I’ve never really held his lack of goals while he settled in and couldn’t care under Bruce at the start. It’s the poor decisions, awkward positioning, running in to defenders, poor touches and the diving antics which have built up with me about him recently.
He’s our leading goal scorer in all competitions. Ok some of those goals came against lesser opposition, however you could argue that many of our players failed to score against lesser opposition.

We’ll strip Shearer of being our top scorer since he scored more cup goals than Milburn.

Watched his goal again today and it was really lovely. Was a nice pace to the counter and finished in a brilliant fashion.
