I thought he looked bright and efficient, he'll be a good 'un.

I agree LeeB. He has an air of class about him, and is always looking to get on the end of things. Would like to see him as part of a front 2, also.

He's going to love playing in front of a packed Villa Park (whenever that may be).

He just has that instinct that good strikers have.

Very unlucky with that effort at the end but for a few inches.  He's good and will get better.

Very Darren Bent-ish last night.  If he maintains that strikers’ instinct and adds a bit elsewhere we’ll 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

2 down 18 to go for 20 in goals in all comps.
Looks quite the goal scorer and hoping he flourish against Fulham Monday after his poor show in Play Off final against them.

My Forecast for Premier league goals is set at 11-14 goals 
That's based on solid research. So is most likely around this figure. (If not more! But provisos number of minutes for the season)

In the premier league.
Anything above is outstanding on a debut season .15+ goals is rare occurrence debut or otherwise
Anything below 11 is underwhelming.
Provided he is our main striker.

And providing he plays a decent amount of 30+ games

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.
