Dean needs to kick him up the arse. I hope it's not another lazy player on big wages who can't be bothered. Too many like this in the past on easy street.

A truly shocking sub appearance.

Yet he whipped in an excellent cross that ought to have been pit away.

He creates chances and scores goals.

Let’s wait till he starts a few consecutive  games before writing him off as a waste of space, particularly after one shite substitute appearance.

ow much longer do we have to wait though? We're a quarter in and it's obvious he's still not fit enough to start. And where's the other winger wee brought in? He's so off the radar I can't even remember his name.

I expect he didn't start as he was in the Congo on Thursday.

Old Nuno paid for this yesterday with the Dingles having playing their 7 who were on international duty.

Expect he will start Tuesday to aid the counter attack.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo has now become so unstable that it is no longer possible to obtain Um Bongo, no matter how far way down the middle you actually go.
Perhaps this affected his limp contribution to proceedings yesterday.......
I've seen it in Tescos at Witton island i'll pass it on

He wasn't as effective yesterday has he has been so far. He seemed to be playing too far out wide and didn't get into the box as much as he has been doing. I think he'll be fine though once he settles in and gets match fit.

Yep, agree with this. We're too quick to write off new signing nowadays.

The ‘give them time’ argument stacks up with players who are stepping up in standard and quality.
A player valued at tens of millions of pounds and on a multi million pound contract, and stepping down a division should at least be seen to put the effort in.

A certain Mr. McGinn seems to have acclimatised to this division without needing too much time.

I'd agree if he'd hadn't done anything of note since he's been here, but he has.

Did he play for Congo during the week? Surely if he is still not fully recovered from his injury why was he allowed to travel?

I stand correct but I think we can only pull players out if they're injured.

I do think you can critisise him for not working hard enough when they were in possession but I think "shocking" is a bit harsh. He put in some good runs and some good crosses. Wasn't it him who put one the ball in for Tammy when he should have scored?

He's played 131 minutes for us and scored twice. For a comparison Jack has played 1112 and scored 0 and got 1 assist. Albert 487 mins and 0 goals and 1 assist.
