Well I'm hoping for at least a brace or he can go back to Genk.

A hattrick or he can join Hogan at Blues!

Samatta  looked every inch what he is, a young, raw, willing striker who has never played at this level before. It won’t happen overnight. Had 2 chances and didn’t connect with either. He’s not going to be our new Darren Bent yet.

He's 27.

Got in the right position twice but didn’t make the right connection, a few decent touches here and there and pretty quiet on the whole so hard to judge even though you shouldn’t really anyway for a players first game in a new league.

Those 2 chances were, for me, the sort that a player who's playing regularly puts away but a guy who's playing for the first time in a month misses. What they did show that was good movement and awareness, whatever else happens I think he'll get plenty of chances to score, hopefully he starts taking them soon, a couple in a big win over Bournemouth would be huge and get us looking up instead of down.

Definitely Paul, he’s got himself into position, a bit more sharpness and he’ll hopefully bury them.

Thought he defended well from the front.  When the ball was played forward to him, he made challenges when he wasn't going to win the ball but put the defender off so that we were able to pick up the second ball.

Good debut by a player who hasn't played for a few weeks.
Didn't convert his 2 opportunities, but that will come with time. Gave the impression that he knows how to play up front - good control and lay offs, match aware and took up good positions and made some strong runs off the ball creating space for others.

It'll take a few games to get match fit. Pity the Belgian League has had a break recently.

It does have to be said though that it was a dreadful miss.  He didn't get anything on it at all.

He looked like he’d just got off the plane, but he slap mugged like a proper striker. Settled down and got into decent positions. Unlucky not to score on his debut
