hope this lad's got the right mindset because there's going to be a bit of pressure on him to perform right out of the gate

Very little pressure I'd say. Nobody has really staked any sort of claim to be the main striker, we're out of the running of every competition so while I hope he is super impressive from the get go, he can get away with a decent handful of goals, showing some good hold up play...basically showing signs of being a competent PL striker.

Plus until we get the service right, he has a little leeway from the start. He's not going to score if we can't create chances for him. These are the problems our other strikers have been dealing with too. The hope would have to be that he'd be able to hold the ball up better and bring others into the game more so in turn we'd create more chances. If we can get an attack minded LB and perhaps a forward thinking CM/AM we may find some balance and may yet play some decent football between now and the end of the season.

This is part one of at least a three part puzzle in the short term.

On the Angry Birds Facebook page...not bad exposure I suppose to 24 mil followers (compared to 3 mil on EFC FB page).

Looked a striker, but he'll need support. As much as I wanted to see him, it was sad that was his first game we didn't even given him a chance.

Hes a good finisher, perhaps not the right fit for every occasion but looks like one of the signings weve got right.

Hopefully he gets a good run until the end of the season.

We should be looking at another complimentary striker come the summer though.
