Totals: Played 123 (69/54); Goals 34; Bkd 11; Minutes 6,604

 

vs Everton

0-1: Sunday, 18th September
(Played 20 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio 70) Anonymous cameo. Just looked angry and a bit lost.

vs Silkeborg

3-2: Thursday, 15th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Subdued but took his goal well, and the team missed his presence when he went off. The ball came back more.

vs FCSB

3-1: Thursday, 8th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Missed big chances, and they were very presentable chances.

vs Aston Villa

1-0: Sunday, 28th August
(Played 65 minutes)

He played quite well without being hugely effective, a little let down by the way the 10 ten players behind him were playing. Quick feet, was strong and made good runs. He isn't Antonio, and their differences are stark, but it's not really that one is better, they just do things differently and offer different ways to attack.

vs Viborg FF

3-0: Thursday, 25th August
(Played 90 minutes)

There is a bit of class about him when he drops in and gets on the ball. Some lovely long passes, little neat lay-offs and another good "striker's goal".

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

0-2: Sunday, 21st August
(Played 28 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Fornals 62) Couldn't really get into it, although he does have the look of a classy player when he gets the ball. Selfless knock down for Soucek created an opening.

vs Viborg FF

3-1: Thursday, 18th August
(Played 67 minutes)

Took his goal well and his movement was good. Eager, mobile and happy to dart out wide as well, and Cornet was happy to move into the space he left.

vs Nottingham Forest

0-1: Sunday, 14th August
(Played 22 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio 68) One glimpse of something, and his idea to chest the ball down in the area to a teammate was probably the right one, but quiet. The creative verve was gone once Fornals went off, which limited service to the striker.

vs Manchester City

0-2: Sunday, 7th August
(Played 34 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio 56) His cameo gave hope to many, the Italian putting himself about and looking eager to impress. Forced a very good save with a header, even though it was ruled offside. There?EUR(TM)s something there, and people were excited just to see him.
