That's fair enough although I'd like to see Trezeguet with a decent midfield before judging him fully. I thought he did okay on Tuesday but others didn't.

I agree, every time I see him live he works his nuts off for the team and showed quite a bit of skill against Watford. Writing a player off  though after just a handful of games for the club seems to be quite common.

I like him and I'm sure he's be much better, or far more consistent next season.

I've generally thought he looks a bit like a headless chicken, but he had a decent game against Liverpool and he did well when he came on against Man City, although it's hard to judge when the opposition are easing off the gas because they are already home and hosed.

I'm not writing him off and with time he could be a decent player, but right now if either Grealish or Ghazi get injured I'd be seriously concerned. But if it's not in the pipeline, so be it. We can't plug every gap in a January window in our first season back.

I liked him at first but he seems to have disappeared into a mess of mediocrity. Probably worth sticking by as theres a player in there somewhere.

Forget Slimani. He is waster of similar scale to Fat Ross. He will be heading out to Qatar or China soon.

I like the fact that Trezeguet, despite largely struggling, at least tries. He always puts in a shift.

AEG, who is a player I like, tends to drift into laziness for spells, despite clearly being a talented player.

to me, hes just seemed inconsistent- much like the rest of the team really. Some days hes great. Other days anonymous. I do like him though and think he will improve and hopefully be more consistent.

Agree with this. Think he's yet to properly settle and like some others has good days and bad days as a result. Hoping he finds a rhythm soon as he clearly has talent.

They're going for promotion and moving into a new stadium, no way they'll sell at the moment.

And they will still only have 20,000 fans at the most.  How will they pay for that stadium?

I imagine buying Hogan was the equivalent of buying a kebab, after a night on the piss.

Oh.
