May as well start a thread on him as it seems genuine.

Welcome. Strange as it may sound I love us signing players I know nothing about. I wonder if one day Lambert will sign someone i've heard of?

Seems ideal- box to midfielder , chips in with a few goals and can play either side wing back or out wide - a much better option than the likes of bannan or Holman.

According to Dutch football fans on Twitter, he is almost James Milner like. In that he is quite versatile but is best in a central role. Due to his versatility, he has been played out of position quite a bit which has slowed his progress.

Welcome. Strange as it may sound I love us signing players I know nothing about.

Although there is an element of risk to it, yes so do i.

One thing with Lambert's signings is they are not always universally rated. I heard some pretty unfavorable reviews on Benteke, Westwood & Lowton before they signed. Yet they have delivered big time.

So hearing some dutch fans voice their surprise doesnt worry me too much

I guess for me it's because when you sign players you know about, say a James Collins type, you know exactly what you are getting. With these unknown (to me) youngsters you never know if one of them is going to be a superstar.

I wonder if he tried to bring these in during the January transfer window but could'nt. It would explain why only Sylla came in permantley.
