Bloody needs to tuck his shirt in and pull his socks up too. Thinks he's bloody Hoddle.Not good enough for us clearly. You would have thought he might have known his colleagues better as he has been with the club for years.
Needed a hat-trick and a hand in all the goals.
Defensively he could also do better and I think his looks could improve.
Disappointing that after one game he is not yet our top European goalscorer.
Coming from different teams - takes a while to bed in to the ‘established’ way of doing things...Bale, Doherty, CV all seem to be struggling with what their team-mates are thinking / doing. (And vice versa).He needs to time it better. Or the man on the ball needs to play it quicker. I think we can catch a lot of defences out if we play it early to him.
Yeah, I really felt sorry for him. Yes, his confidence was shot after a while, but it was like he was in people's blind spot, or maybe just thinking too quickly. If he'd been served a pass on even 50% of those runs he'd have bagged a few of them and history as we know it wouldn't have happened.It’s the same problem Soldado had when no fucker would pass him the ball despite making amazing runs in those early games...
Yup.Hmmm, there's a chance I'm wrong about this one.
The more I watch, the more I can see whyJose was after him.
Seems versatile and has a lot of attributes and will pose a different problem to defenders, for us.
Was very good on his debut. Was alright tonight in a lethargic team performance. But you have your agenda and that's alright too.
Agreed, taken off too soon.Shouldn't have been subbed off.
