to be honest, i think this guy can come in and have nothing to lose for the rest of the season. Bed himself into our culture and the league (not our current way of playing), and get used to our surroundings ready for next season and when Big Sam hopefully disappears.
It is going to be a huge difference for him coming into such a competitive league.
I am not so worried about his goals for the rest of the season - I just want to see what the lad is made of in terms of effort, first touch and his all round game. If he is a good footballer, then goals should naturally flow.
