I’m not sure that even his gran would rate him in the top 3 midfielders.

If you look at our second eleven now

Steer
Guilbert - Elmo(?) - Hause - Taylor
Ramsey - Nakamba - Hourihane
Trez - Davies/Wesley - AEG

That's not a bad side really - probably struggle in the Premier League, but I'd put money on them beating our first team from 2 years ago.
This post didn't age well :(

I suggested Ross Barkley in the Transfer thread weeks ago and happy i got my wish true. On his day a fantastic player lets hope Smith brings his talent right out. We have now got the opposition thinking more than just Grealish to worry about.

A massive improvement to us based on that 45.

Always free when we’re breaking and carrying the ball tremendously.

Yes could have had three in the first half, he's playing further up the pitch than I thought he would.

I know it is relatively easy to shine in a team performance like this but I think he has been magnificent and the best of the lot. Although that new striker we bought hasn't been bad either  ;)

I'll hold my hand up, he's been a lot better than I expected, his understanding with Jack has been a huge part of this.

If he could shoot he'd be useful.

What a debut, superb, putty he forgot his shooting boots. He’s going to get on the score sheet regularly with Jack in the team

Once he gets his match sharpness (remember he's been a sub for the last x seasons), watch us go. He and Jack already look like they have a great understanding.

Great signing.
