He's had a good start, quite pleased so far.

I thought he was very impressive today.  Always made the defenders work and earned the goal through that.  He makes runs and attacks the ball in a way Wesley just never did as well as holding the ball up well.  You feel as though if he keeps doing that he will get goals in this league.

Samatta looks bloody good. No matter qhat division we are in next year keep him and get rid of wesley.

I think he will score shed loads in the championship he looks like a menacing pest

Looks very good. Intelligent player and great work ethic. Provide the chances and he will score.

We have a good player here, seems to have good moves, awareness, looks like a very tidy signing to me.

I'm more concerned with how many goals he will score in the Premier League.

My point being if we do go down he should be kept at all costs

Indeed, his decision making seems good, it looks like he has good "football brain".

Thought he played really well yesterday. Quick and sharp, he gets about and gets into good positions too, was right on Alderweireld's shoulder for the first goal. He also held the ball up well and was no pushover in the air. I can't remember him giving the ball away and we looked less effective once he was off the pitch. Think he is more suited to the way we play than Wesley.

He's looked pretty promising in all his games so far and was very busy yesterday.  I'm looking forward to seeing what his finishing is like once he actually gets a few decent chances.

He's a good player, no doubt. If we do go down i would hope there will be something in place to say that he stays here next season and if so, and as long as he doesn't get a Kodjia type injury he would probably be the best centre forward in that league next season. If we stay up, he looks easily good enough for this league. We need to play the same formation as we have been but with the front three being a player in behind and a front 2. He'll look even better then and i still think Wes could be a good partner for him in that situation if he fully gets over the injury.

At the moment, i'd love to see Grealish get a proper 'free role' to play in behind 2 strikers and drift wide when appropriate.

He has a good first touch so holds play up well and picks a pass.  Also gets into good goal scoring positions.   Needs service, but will get a handful of goals before the end of the season I think.

Really liked the look of him yesterday. Lively, can do the hold up play but also much more instinct for getting into dangerous positions than wes. I think they could actually be a decent front 2.
