Very Darren Bent-ish last night.  If he maintains that strikersí instinct and adds a bit elsewhere weíll have a gem on our hands.  Big IF, I guess, but a positive start.

I thought he played well he's going to score goals for us that's for sure.

Wheres Marcus Stewart of Ipswich and Kevin Phillips (Sunderland days) in your lists, Footy? Didn't they pwn the Prem in the early years of the nu millenia ?
They were just outside of the cut of point of last 20 or so seasons .

Shows us not many get 15+ premier league  goals in debut seasons

He's got two goals in three games albeit in the cup but I think he will score a lot more for us he's carried on where he left off last season.

He gets into key positions which is a great trait to have as a forward. He seems to just know where to be.

3 in 4 if you include the Manure friendly

He is a natural, instinctive goal poacher the like of which we have not had since the days of Gary Shaw, Dwight Yorke and to slightly lesser degree Darren Bent.  He will do us well.

It's just so nice to see after years without it, just knowing your striker will be on the end of a loose ball is a great feeling.

I liked the way he took his goal last night, letting the ball run across him, and using his left foot, when taking it with his right might have been the natural thing to have done.  It shows he is full of confidence and enjoying the challenge that comes with the step up.

I agree, but he has probably played in the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup before. Letís see how he does in the EPL. Iím hopeful.

I agree as well - he seems to find 2 yards all the time - that's why his Brentford goals look like tap ins - he's in the right place, which as has been proven by our last umpteen strikers it's not as simple as it looks.

Platt was the absolute master at this, hence his incredible goal return from Midfield for us. Superb player.

He started the move & finished with a goal. Be happy brother.
