Really good again. Mentioned in the match thread there was one tackle where he got the ball cleanly from the wrong side of the player and came out of defence with it. Amazing how he did it without fouling.

He reminds me of one of those lanky, not very athletic looking players you get at 5 aside that are impossible to get past, who never have a bead of sweat on them.

For me this guy has been the best buy of all the new signings. Looks class and a snip at the price we paid.

Agree, Engels and Guilbert combined fee 12m

Both look like bargains, Engels looks so composed for someone playing in a new league. Guilberts pace and energy was impressive last night again.

I'm tempering this with the thought that Micah Richards looked decent for the first two months, but this guy looks the business so far.

I suspect Bjorn's fitness record is superior!
