Beckford is far from a finished article, I'm still on the fence on him until I see him being more clinical. BUT he is adding a lot when he's on the pitch right now.

His off ball movement is superb, showing some decent first touches, seems strong on the ball and has awareness of those around him (obvious by his assists).

If he can add to this, the most important part, clinical finishing, he could turn out to be one hell of a player.

Remember, Arteta, Graveson, Fellaini and Jags (and probably many others I can't recall) took a while to bed in, and became far greater than their initial performances indicated.

Not saying Jermaine will turn out great, just give the young lad room to grow.

He isn't young, he's 27, in his prime for a striker.

Even though he missed a few chances, he's still done well to get into the positions in the first place. Today will have boosted his confidence at least. He'll never be top draw though, he's a freebie from a 3rd division club!
Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right.

Wasn't pleased with Beckford today, the amount of chances he fucked up against a team struggling in the championship was pretty worrying.

Other than the level of competition, doesn't that pretty much sum up Beckford's efforts at Everton? Most games he gets his chances, and most games he bungles them.

If he could ever become more clinical with his finishes...or even put home one of three...he could be a major contributor.
Everton forever.

I think that people have got to accept that Beckford will never be a clinical finisher and never has been. He's quick and gets into good positions and also works hard for us but he's not going to be a 15 goal a season man. The only reason he was so prolific further down the league was the number of chances that Leeds would create in each game.

Anyway great result and some cracking goals, hopefully we'll get a similar draw in Round 4.
