What I like so far is that he's confident enough in his own ability to let the ball get out from under his feet (Grealish is great at it as well). It's something i really like to see because it draws tackles so defenders often sell themselves out or give away fouls. It does mean that there will be times where he loses the ball in good areas but I think that's a price worth paying for the benefits it brings. I also like that he's good at playing people in but can also turn and run at people, it's what made Benteke so dangerous for us.

It's what Gestede used to do too  :o

Not quite, the ball bounced off him a pretty long way when he tried to control it but it wasn't intentional, he just couldn't trap a bag of cement.

He is a footballer though right? I mean he is, isn't he?  ???

To wear the iconic number 9 shirt. I hope he knows the importance of that shirt.

I wish they had given him Johnny Dixon's number.   9 is a bit of a hope too far.  Johnny (10) and Tommy Thompson (8) once plundered 40 first division goals between them.  I wish you younger fans could have seen it.

I don't  know what that Belushi face is doing there.

Hogan, Sinclair, literally no-one, Ireland, Harewood.
Pretty low bar, that!

I'm not a fan of what I've seen from this guy in 2 competitive games. He has no pace, his first touch is complete garbage, he's always second best to every ball played to him in promising areas and his positional awareness is non-existent. I'm also getting highly annoyed by his theatrical antics at the slightest bit of contact.

This guy needs to toughen up and fast.

He’s young and inexperienced and being asked to learn very fast.  Always going to be difficult but he looks a much better player with the ball at his feet.

I'm beginning to worry that he's the second cousin of George Weah.

Asking him to be our main striker is a big challenge for someone so inexperienced.  We're crying out for another option up front.

Genuine question, but if he's chronic in the air and has no pace, what is his reason for being our main striker?

At this point I wouldn’t be against taking a flyer on Sturridge to see us to January. Unless I missed he’s no longer a free agent.

I assume that's the case, but nobody would suggest we bought Akinfenwa. Then again, I've seen him score a few.

He has tonnes of pace.
