Another strike for the on form Icelander. While he is not a typical winger, he is producing the goods with intelligent movement off the ball and some very cool finishing. After struggling at times last season, it’s a good job he stuck around.
While it is still difficult to understand why we signed the then South African captain, but he is getting regular games on loan at a Doncaster side that is on a little winning run at the moment.
Along with ex-Spur Tommy Hudd, Jake is earning some good reviews on loan at a Hull side who are surprising a few peeps.
Back swimming in the adults pool.
He’ll probably feel that Saturday was a missed opportunity, and it was his/our inability to deal with Chelsea’s half time changes that made the game one literally of two halves. While there are plenty he could have done, who knows if it would have worked, but I bet AVB went to bed ruing in his indecision.
Record signing, spent 90 minutes on bench and saw Nacer Chadli come on instead of him.
Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado
Put these two together because there are a few question marks about what they are bringing to the team. Of course, it is far too early to judge them, and Soldado showed some impression hold up play against much bigger defenders in the first half but was totally anonymous in the second, while Chadli doesn't have the pace and dribbling intentions of Townsend, nor the eye for goal of Sigurdsson. Not saying they aren’t good enough, but I only had the Chelsea game to consider this week, what more do you want???
