He's work in progress and will get better - he's shown flashes of good interplay and link up. He's struggling at times as we don't have a defined way of playing - good crosses are sporadic as are good through balls.

Give the lad time - he's not a Ted McDougal or Garry Birtles ffs he's scoring goals.
not sure birtles is a standard by which united players should be judged. he certainly looks a lot better with the ball in front of him, facing goal. can pass and dribble (although more sporadically than we cross). but the infrequency of crosses is no excuse for some of his attempts to head the ball. needs a lot more fight in him, too. far too nice.

Applies to most of them aside from Big Tony, the Gurner and the idiot Rojo.

I feel we should give him another year if he can create a good relation with Zlat (and I am talking off the pitch) what he could learn would be valuable to his career.

He's obviously not going to be sold, but there has to be a vast improvement in his overall game and attitude.

Comparisons to Cole are ridiculous, Cole's attitude was always A f***ing 1, pure winner and don't even start me on the footballing differences....

Did anyone really want him before we signed him?

yes, if the alternative was not having him.

could think of better ways to spend the money.

Ambivalent. But the reports on here that Everton fans saw him as a player who sometimes just didn't fancy it, were worrying.

Well...

Another year? we'll never get rid of the turd on his wage and value.

We'll be moaning about the fat c*** for ages

Hopefully, Jose drops him and plays Martial/Rash upfront so he can learn how to actually take a first-time ball
