He’s not just better than what I thought we’re getting to be honest, he’s a fucking revelation, he’s a perfect fit for what we need.I thought he was gonna be a bang average plodder but looks much better than I initially gave him credit for. Definitely a fan now.
At his dial in, Matt Le Tissier said that he thought he was a good player for Southampton, but didn't think he was the one to take us to the next level. He quantified that by saying that he might raise his game being in a better team.
I wasn't convinced with his first few showings, but happy to reserve judgment, as it takes time for players to settle. He has definitely improved and has shown he is a warrior. He doesn't have to wear the captain's armband to be a captain on the pitch.
So glad he is in our team, he has filled a huge gap in our midfield and has quickly become one of the first names on the team sheet.
