He drifts in and out of games but then again what 18/19 year old dosen't.

If people are expecting him to drive us into the top 6 they're going to be disappointed.

I think he's got some great qualities and with the right coaching he can go far in the game. Pretty debatable whether he's going to get that here.

I just wonder if playing him on the left is hindering him a bit.  Some right footed players can do it, especially those who lack that bit of pace beat a defender down the line, as it enables them to cut back on their right foot and whip balls in, but I guess some struggle with it.

I still think we would be better off signing a natural left winger this season and using Green here and there. 
For some reason Bruce hasn't signed any naturally left sided players...LB, LM or LW!!! I've got a good left foot so may be I could rock up and get a game.

Forgot about Taylor as I was thinking of the lack of backup at LB. So we've got one left sided player then...is everyone else in the squad right footed?

Don't be daft. Some are no footed.

That certainly looks to be the case with Thor when he can't even control the ball!

Hourihane is left footed

I don't think this is our biggest problem tbh

Brilliant goal...shame he missed another easy header at the end to lay that ghost to rest and boost his confidence.

Best game yet - still heads to learn to head the ball if I was being critical.

Well done Andre. Having a starting position 20 yards closer to goal helped, as did having four players to aim at in the box.

I like him. He's raw, but he's rapid, has good control and if he continues to add end product he's going to be a menace.

I've been critical. Today he played well. The goal was outstanding.

Davis made space for him today and he certainly exploited it well.
I hope we don't spunk out on Snodgrass.
