A player who should be sold and replaced if we want to progress. He's dire, and an absolute liability.

This 100%!!! I have no idea how he has defenders here.

Another failed winger, should have come off at half time.

Probably because he has a few goals and assists.

I think he has talent, but he makes some really poor errors.

That bit where he got the ball and under no pressure, calmly and with all the time in the world, passed straight to a Liverpool player. How does a professional footballer do that?

He could probably break the world record for keepie-uppies or be part of a fast-edited showreel of flicks and tricks but he's not the man for keeping to team discipline on the field or being part of a team trying to control the ebb and flow of a game.

For all his occasional skills he is a luxury that we can ill afford and I would sell him in the summer.

Has shown real ability in places and is out of form, as are most of the team. I'm not giving up on him. At least deserves next season having come from abroad...a lesson we never seem to learn.

He was a liability yesterday and stunned he was not subbed at half time.

For the most part, he's shite. Our wide player options are terrible.

He's maddening. That ridiculous piece of skill that totally flummoxed De Bruyne, also came from the same player that blind hooked a square ball behind his own midfield yesterday. I...dunno.

After his first few games, I thought we had a potential Mahrez on our books. Now I realise, we have a liability.  :(

It was the same with Samatta. Couple of good things, eg the goal at Wembley, but otherwise a really bad signing. Hopefully the club will realise their mistake with Traore as well, and move him on.

He was a squad player at Chelsea and Lyon in Champs League squads, that's his level. He's what you get for £15m or whatever it was we paid for him. I'd keep him from the perspective of being a squad player. The right sided version of Grealish is what we need to sign this summer.

Different types of player but he reminds me of his namesake Adama, capable of both amazing skill and breathtaking stupidity, sometimes in the same attack. His list of clubs tells you that loads of coaches think they can harness the talent and cut out the bad decisions, then realise they canít and move him on.

I like watching him but suspect heíll be off again soon.
