I don't know what the fuck people were expecting. He's 21, come from an average team, and let's face it, he hardly set the world alight for them. He shouldn't be playing in our team on such a regular basis, and i think injuries have brought this about, however he does seem to be the un-droppable man. Even when we play a 4-4-2 he plays right wing. He's not had a stand out game for me and personally i think he's dog average.
What are his strengths? He's got a good engine, he can play a 5 yard pass sideways or backwards.
Weaknesses: No bottle or ability to drive forward when we're loosing, Refuses to pass forward, very poor final ball, doesn't contribute with goals.
Yes he's 21, and you may say "well look at Lucas", but there's development and fucking miracles. I'm not saying this because we've lost today, frankly i've got no fucking idea why we bought him in the first place. We had about 8 centre midfielders in the summer, and we got rid of our best 2. Aqua and Raul. Sold those two and replaced them with a glorified sunday league player and a kid.
Put it this way, i HOPE he comes good, but i certainly don't EXPECT it.
