Not seen this youtube montage before.  There's definitely some very good moments, but the heading, 5 yard ball control and weak shot are all there.

Whilst I'm critical, I'm looking forward to him getting back to fitness to see if he can kick on.




Christ, that montage makes him look even worse than I remember.  That lad will never, ever score a goal from outside the area.  He's not exactly got a foot like a traction engine has he?

How many did Lineker score from outside 12 yards?

I like him
Brazil saw enough last season to give him his first cap

Think he’ll come good if the Mee challenge hasn’t left lasting effects.

And having other options up front hopefully will take the pressure off him alone and help him to bed in

Fair, but sample size is selective. Sure we scored (and conceded) more in the first half of the season. Going out on a limb as haven't checked. Definitely was the case post-lockdown.

@SHQ

It's definitely true, our scoring average in games since his injury is significantly worse than up to that game. 25 in 20 (1.25 per game) up to 31/12/19 vs 16 in 18 (0.89pg) in 2020.

McGinn starting the season in good scoring form and then picking up an injury before the bad one v Southampton was more of a factor imo.

Hopefully he's back to full fitness now, looked much better v Arsenal and West Ham.

He was better that anyone else last season in the role up front. I would hope there is more to come from him. However if we can get one more then that will certainly take any pressure off him when he finally gets fit.

I think Wes will benefit from having competition for his place with Watkins and hopefully another striker....

Davis a bit part from the subs bench (unless a season on loan in champs)...

Davis needs regular football at this stage. Season long loan would be a decent idea, but in truth i don't think he'll ever be at a level that i hope we'll soon be at.

Davis would be a good loan move for Brentford. Decent top third side and well coached.

Be absolutely the right place for him, but i think they'd rather play Toney/someone they'll get money for developing.

I was thinking more a Preston for Keinan, where he would probably play a lot and they would get crosses in to him.

If he went to Brentford, they play one up front and that will be Toney.

Really looking forward to big Wes coming back and forming a good relationship with Ollie.
