Trezeguet looked an atrocious signing all the way through the season, offered little or nothing.  I'm grateful for the fact he found a streak of goals to help us stay up and maybe it's a sign that there is a player in there somewhere - but it doesn't disguise the fact that for the most part he's been absolute utter garbage and nowhere near good enough for a top half PL team.

Davis creates problems when he comes on the pitch for the opposition. His shot accross the goal against West Ham was a decent effort imo and needed someone following in at the far post. And Jack's goal was started by good play from Davis. He will never be prolific but does need to add some goals into his game. But there's something about him that I like as a player.

Even with the goal, his sharp take and turn from the throw opened up the space for McGinn to find Grealish, he didn't just stand and receive the ball. All game every time the ball went into Samatta he'd get hustled off it if he tried more than just laying it off first time.

It's a weird one with Davis.  He looks a very good player in every facet of the game apart from actually scoring.  Even if he had a late vintage Heskey type 1 goal every 8 games strike rate, you could make a case from him, but it's not even that.  It's not even famously goal shy John Jensen levels of goal avoiding..

Not much worse than Joelinton either. Don't watch enough of Newcastle to notice if he adds more.

I would loan Keinan out to a Ch'ship team where he'll get chances. He looks like a confidence player to me. Bang a few in and he might be worth taking back and having on the bench as a plan B.

The "not as bad as Joelinton" argument seems to get trotted out a fair bit as a defence of Wesley and Davis.  It doesn't really help our case that another club wasted a load of money on a useless lump does it?

Not defending him, hence the suggestion to let him show us if he can do it in the second division. Just glad we got him for tuppence from the non-league rather than a Solanke/Jo Linton fee.

Yeah but Joelinton is a recognised by-word for "shit" so not sure that's the best comparison.

Davis does other stuff, he just never, ever looks like scoring.

Some were saying the same (loan him out to score goals then bring him back) about Hepburn-Murphy, and look how that ended.
Maybe Keenan is not all that.
