Judging by the options we've had on the bench so far I'd say it's pretty hard for him not to be in the match day squad.

He's played a lot of games in his career he will be a lot more mature in his game than someone like Lookman so while it will be a big step up in quality, physicality and tempo he has played enough games in his career to be in the mix I'd have thought.

So it's him wide left, Sandro wide right and DCL up top. Combined age of about one Wayne Rooney. Exciting to speculate what it might be like but ultimately probably frustrating as fuck.

You see this is the exact type of thing I'm trying to stamp out. Copying all the same old songs we've always sang!

They are already singing the Jelavic song for Sigurdsson when it should have been Ice Ice Gylfi to the tune of Ice Ice Baby or his name to the tune of Brown Girl in the ring by Boney M

Most of the lower Gwladys weren't born when Ice Ice Baby was out and they certainly won't have the foggiest who Boney M are.

Blimey, it shows how blinkered I can be during a game.

He looked really strong and intelligent.

At least we managed to sign him though.

Has a good first touch, vision and passing ability.

As mentioned yet another #10....

Pickford

Rooney Sig Vlasic
DCL

Looks alright that.

In all the disappointment over not signing a striker, the failure to buy a backup for Baines was overlooked. Fuck sake.

Strength is greatly impressive. So is his movement and decision making.

Get him on the left in front of Baines and with Sandro in front of him and see if he can cut it in the big league.

Yeah, I was thinking this, especially with Rooney's recent troubles.

I would've had Holgate in place of Martina, though; he's a better defender, and surely we could get enough attacking width from the forward players in that line-up.

Suppose it depends on his mindset, but I wouldn't have any problem with it. You normally forget your troubles when you're involved in an intensive game of footie, and if anything it's a welcome distraction from other stuff that's on your mind.

Excellent performance tonight. The finish and the cross for Calvert-Lewin will get all the plaudits (and rightfully so) but his dribbling, off the ball movement, and control in tight areas were genuinely impressive.

He deserves more time on the pitch, even if it continues to be off the bench.

Reminds me of Hazard when he was younger. Low centre of gravity, well built, quick on the turn, runs at players. Just hope Koeman goes quickly before he can scare the talent out of him.

Got a feeling he's a potential world beater.

Loved the way he pushed that defender out the way when he put in that peach of a cross that DCL somehow totally fucked up.

One of the few positives of this season.

Excellent performance tonight. The finish and the cross for Calvert-Lewin will get all the plaudits (and rightfully so) but his dribbling, off the ball movement, and control in tight areas were genuinely impressive.

He deserves more time on the pitch, even if it continues to be off the bench.

19 and the only one who looked like a man.

Thought exactly the same plus his finish for the goal was clinical especially with how tight the angle seemed.
Not gonna join on the band wagon of being a top quality player. But he's got the potential.

RK “I thought Nikola had a big impact in the middle. Maybe that is something for the future."

Anyone else you'd like to play down the middle? Fuck sake.

Maybe that is something for the future -> I'm going to bench him for the next game.

There was a moment in the second half where he received the ball on the right wing and could have easily played a first-time pass back to an unmarked Gana. Instead, he held the ball for a couple of seconds and created an angle for a back-post cross to Calvert-Lewin. Obviously, we didn't score, but you can't fault the process. If you want to score goals, you need creative players who aren't afraid to try stuff, and I don't see an ounce of fear in this guy. One of three outfield players in this side that I actually enjoy watching right now.

Clearly looks like he could be a player. Seems to have a strong mental platform too, that's going to be crucial when playing in this squad.

Mad that he's already one of the first names on the team-sheet.

I've convinced myself he'd be one of those players that would have been class in Italy duing the 90's.  Let's treasure him

i really like the look of him, he doesn't have loads of pace but he's a good runner, a good dribbler and has a terrific attitude.

The play him in the middle stuff is quite funny because I mean yeah he was originally a central player when we bought him but fuck me please don't take our only wide player away Ron.

The energetic Davies and Vlasic in the middle? Give struggling Schneiderlin and Gueye a rest against Lyon?

With Lookman out wide - if he hasn't shot his bolt!

Because we don't want dissent in the ranks to add to all our other troubles. He's been here five minutes and made a promising start; just build from there.

Seemed a bit of a strange one, given how useful he has looked. I think he's more the type of player you'd start, so maybe we were saving him to use against Lyon. But surely fuck off europe and focus all on the league now.

Maybe the info about saving the shirt number for Costa ruffled some feathers.

Should she be responding "What he said" to a poster who had just called the managers decision to to play Vlasic "A fucking joke"?
