I appreciate it’s stating the bleeding obvious but the lad needs a goal. Confidence is everything with strikers and he needs to know he belongs in this league.

He's got some ability, but he looks like he need to be gradually introduced to the Premier League.  Which we can't do as we neglected to buy any other forwards.

It's way too early to write him off, but it was majorly pissing me off today when he either jogged to close down their keeper or didn't bother at all. What happened to the much-vaunted Dean Smith press ?

Dunno. Struggling to see what in his game made the management team think he’d be suitable.

The lad is a bit of a unit
Ace. I just need 'He'll be better after a full pre-season' for a full house. Come on! ;-)

You okay today love? Why bother pull up that post when it’s no different to what many said when we signed him.
I deeply apologise for gently ribbing you about football clichés. I thought the winky emoticon would show it was a harmless bit of fun.

You might want to take a vitamin supplement to thicken that skin.

This coming from one of the most pedantic people on here. The depth of my skin is just fine BE. You decided to pick up on a post today that was from 2 months ago. Don’t you have punctuation or grammar to correct somewhere?
Sorry, just realised that I quoted a post from page 1 of the thread. I honestly thought it was posted tonight.

As for corrections. Nope, still enjoying my two months off work.

Mate don’t worry about it. All good.

What annoyed me today was that as our lone striker, he wasn’t even taking up positions in the box when we were building down the wings so they had absolutely no one to cross to. I recall being concerned about signing him when someone on here said that his game was more of dropping deep, so if we’re expecting him to be the dynamic goal scoring machine then I think we’ve bought the wrong type of player.

Another thing that pissed me off was that we’re playing with 2 wingers...both of which either couldn’t or refused to beat their fullbacks, and neither put in any decent crosses. There’s no point playing with 2 wingers if they can’t do what wingers are supposed to do, so if they can’t do it then Dean needs to change the system.

At the end of the day, he’s not going to score goals without the right kind of service and if he’s not putting himself in the right positions, so Dean and the staff need to start drilling the front 5 hard this week before it becomes a real problem.

Thought Wes looked better yesterday, holding the ball up well. He struggled in the box given the poor service from out wide. Most of our crosses would not even worry a vampire let alone their goalkeeper.
