I already fear we cannot afford him.

long may it continue....


Cannot afford him? Did you forget who owns us? And heís not suddenly an £80m player. Heís a reserve at Chelsea. Heíll cost £40m tops. Thatís the level of player we will be buying next season.

As he was only 50/50 before the game started he should have been substituted  long before he took that punt at goal. Smith is useless when it comes to subbing.

As others have said he takes pressure off Jack and offers another attacking option. Best of all heís fitted in seamlessly.

I thought he was a brilliant player while at Everton. Then Mr Average when with Chelsea. Itís clear he needs plenty of game time, a squad rotation system doesnít suit him at all. His shot from outside the box is something he is always capable of and won us the game.  And the good thing is that he will improve as he gels into the team. Keep it up Ross.

Something I read yesterday which I think rings true - he needs a setup with enough solidity to allow him to stay forward as much as possible, but with enough other attacking options that he has space to move. Although reading that back, I suppose it could just describe any attacker.

Apparently nobody on either side lost the ball more often than him, but that because he's the one trying things that result in 92nd minute winners.

He's looks much better for us than I thought he would.

Was surprised, when he said he was only 50/50 for the match, thought he was very good last night, superb strike for the goal, looks like he's gonna be one of the best signings of the season in the Prem.

That's why I don't like looking at passing and dispossessed stats for attacking players, players who never lose the ball in the final third are normally the ones who don't actually make things happen.

He played his part in a good team defensive display, despite not being fully fit.  Then smacks in a worldly last minute winner.  I love him only marginally less than I do Jack.
