Yeah but this is half the world away, not a few postcodes down the road to keep Walsall wassailing another year.

Heís been lost, heís been found but he donít feel down.

I really like Buendia.

I get that he can be frustrating and is too easily knocked off the ball, and that he has good and bad matches, but I love players like him who buzz around trying to make things happen, he's clearly very talented.

He has 'end product' too, always creates or scores. There have been many 'lovely' players down the years that did neither.

Not sure I completely agree with that, he needs to do more in my opinion. Tuesday was his first assist of the season.

Really? Bloody hell.

I was think of Everton for example, his first touch off the bench in a tight game was the ball around the corner that McGinn got fouled running onto. He doesn't get an assist for that. Or the shot at home to Leicester that beat the keeper but came back off the bar to Watkins who scored. I'm sure there are others that might not have been the last touch before the goal but were the 'key' pass in the move.

Also you canít hold it against him or anyone for that matter if the chances created are missed.

I'm very much in the 'needs to do more' camp. clearly talented but very frustrating. He's 40th for big chances created this season so it's like they're being missed either.

If we want to consistently be in europe we need our other attackers to provide much, much more.

Yes, it's a skewed stat.  Anyway, I really like him, he has ability and plenty of confidence to go with it, maybe a bit of dunning-kruger in certain situations which sometimes puts us in trouble though.

Risso, do you mean first assist that this time Ollie has managed to convert? He has provided many others that our forwards have squandered.

It obviously can't be an assist if a goal hasn't been scored. In that case it's just a 'big chance' and he hasn't provided as many of those as he should, either. I do like him, I just think he needs to affect games more often, which he's more than capable of.

he's provided 5 big chances this season, according to stats, so this is a myth that loads have been missed. It puts hi 40th for chances created in the league.

I like him too but it's not a great output

For everything he does well, he misplaces easy passes or gets caught in possession alot. Clearly talented, but really should be Coutinho's understudy, which is a whole different discussion.

Ok that's fair enough. I like him but if we want to stick around top six he needs to improve or we need to get a better replacement in, in the summer.

Lovely cameo and at times his touch is subline

The meg with Barnes to play in Moreno was genius.

Interesting that before the assist for the goal almost an identical run by Watkins was found by Emi - clearly an actual tactic worked on and executed.

He obviously needs to improve aspects of his game but i really think he is a very talented player
