I honestly dont think he played any better than he did than last week but he scored. The lad has everything you need to score 15-20 goals a season just give him time.

Anyone still trawling through the list of free agents?

He played really well. Fair play. Made some sensible and unselfish runs to bring other players into the game.

Unlikely as most other fans are enjoying the result.

Regardless of what happened tonight we are still a striker short, so if someone can come up with a decent free agent then great, no need for petty point scoring from anyone.

He was brilliant tonight. Set the standard for what we want to see going forward. Well done Wes!

He was much better tonight. Brilliant? Overall? Not quite. He was great for both the goals, certainly, and that's what has counted in the end.

Massive relief for him, I'm sure, to score his first. Here's to loads more.

Thought he was excellent, played the unselfish lone striker role to near perfection. He obviously listens to his instructions carefully and does what hes told.

Getting up to PL speed, not bad in three games.

Considering he was playing against a side that don't concede much and against Mina, a very awkward man to be marked by ...
... he won a fair bit of ball, competed well, held the ball up better than his first 2 games and looked a decent lone striker generally. His movement was excellent too, helped by some of Jota's dinked passes.

He definitely has a lot of Jota love. I noticed as soon as Jota came on against Bournemouth Wes made a run in front of the defenders and Jota found him immediately. It paid off last night with the same move leading to his goal. You can tell those two love playing with each other.

Had a very encouraging game, confidence grew after the goal. Also wouldn't surprise me if Dean had a word during the week about being stronger and going down easily and flapping your arms about doesn't wash. Used his strength well.

I agree. Considering he was up against two big units, he bullied them well, held the ball up, brought others into play, really encouraging signs.
