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