Poor fella must be so frustrated.

Looking at his goals reel on YouTube (yeah, I know), every single one of them comes from him getting onto a cross or through ball central in the penalty area. He's a finisher in the Chica mould.

So far, he's mostly been restricted to cameos at the end of games when our creative players are too knackered and/or too desperate to be able to play him in.

I made a point of watching him closely after he came on (well, as closely as is possible from way behind the goal) and he put himself about well enough, but was just chasing hopeful punts in the channel or making runs into space that went ignored.

There's an obvious exit route for him at the end of the season given Bilic was next in line for his services last summer.
West Bromwich, Albian?

They checked it on VAR cant see how they can go against that
It would just be the opposite way around of the Son red card being overturned retrospectively.

I thought he was lucky not to be sent off, though Holgate was provoking him by going so needlessly tight behind him and having a niggle at him with his knee (conveniently overlooked on MOTD).
Ajeti had also been bundled overafter beating his man with no attempt to play the ball a few moments earlier and the ref was looking straight at the incident and did nothing.

MOTD stitched Ajeti up by singing Holgate's praises for three minutes before showing the inicident. They even dismissed the latter's over-reaction/simulation in their absolute condemnation of Ajeti.
There was some irony that Alan Elbows Shearer and Ian Two-footed-studs-up-lunge Wright were the oh-so-outraged judges.

I liked that he came on full of energy and fight. Haller could do with some of that passion.
I think Ajeti deserves far more opportunity to show what he can do.

On the other hand, if he gets a ban then would we notice the difference?

To be fair to Moyes the lad wasn’t getting much time for Pel either.

He was clearly bought as a future first teamer and has been massively thrown ahead because of zero other strikers
I don't particularly rate him but what I am saying is if you have someone like Lanzini stinking the place out change it earlier and at least give the sub a chance. He could not have done any worse

They said on motd it can be looked at again by the FA
If the FA overule VAR, then surely there is no point in having it? :scarfer:
