  1. Good finish and a bit of strength to stay up too.
  2. I’d start firing shots in from outside the box. Try and draw the defence out to close down the attempts from distance and hopefully create some gaps at the back.
  3. Very poor attempt at the free kick. Plenty of possession but no cutting edge. Not looking promising.
  4. Tav brushed off a bit too easy there.
  5. Virtually nothing then??? I read about the derby winner but hadn’t realised he had any significant impact. Well, hopefully Alfredo can do similar wherever he ends up. I’ve never really taken to him so maybe my judgement is clouded. £25m and not a penny less (plus a sell on clause, obviously). Still don’t see it right enough.
  6. He is not a consistent clean striker. Defoe is streets ahead of him in that respect. It’s a pity he’s lost too much pace over the last couple of years as this restricts the goal scoring positions he can get into and the opportunities that would arise.
  7. Dembele did, his price was inflated and he’s done nothing since. Dembele did score more high profile goals which probably helped but hopefully the same increase in value will apply to Alfredo after the recent media hype and speculation.
  8. Clearly not every goal is going to be a scuffed mishit but there have been more than a few, along with a significant number of bad misses which with a little more composure and technical ability would have been goals. It’s not that long ago when the move to the Far East fell through, he had a few bad games and a dry spell when numerous posters were bemoaning the fact we hadn’t cashed in. Now, any minor criticism is thrown back and he’s somehow become the next Pele. He’s a good player in this league but I doubt he’ll flourish in a higher quality, more competitive environment. Denya has rhymed off half a dozen players who are ahead of him in the international stakes and he has some way to go before he establishes himself in that group. I’d take the money now as a season as productive as this one is often followed with a poor return the following season and I’m not entirely convinced he would have the appetite to plough through another season in this league.
  9. He’s still too raw and inexperienced at a high level to command some of the fees mentioned. If a big team came for him, it would be a speculative purchase. He’s done better than I expected this season but he’s scoring against poor players in poorly organised defences. The Scottish game has genuinely never been worse. He lacks composure and is not a clean striker of the ball but he does have an aggressive, bustling technique that creates chances and unsettles defences. I hope we do get £20m but I can’t see anyone within the club having realistic expectations of that.
  10. Should have been a second for them there.
  11. Great start. We needed that. That’s what happens when you have all the ball but don’t score the goals.
  12. Tav should have had a go there. Great chance.
  13. They won’t keep this up. Need to absorb this pressure without losing a second.
  14. Looked a good save but clearly no touch on the replay.
