I know he still has a tendency to drift out of games but I wonder if he's giving Koeman something to think about in this pre-season with Koeman wanting to see goals and assists from midfielders. If you can get the lad shooting chances around and inside the box, he'll score goals at any level, and that could be a real asset to us.

Scored a hat-trick today.

Really think this lad could be a genuine class player for us. You loan someone out to the Championship and that's a tough physical league with a shitload of games. It can be a bit sink or swim, and it looks like Dowell's already doing the Butterfly on cruise control the way he's playing.

Also, he celebrates quite calmly, like he expects to score, which can often be a sign of a class player.

He got hook last two weeks one after 60mins.

To be expected though in that league. To go from our U23s to 40-60 first team games a season against grown men kicking the shit out of you every week, it'd be weird if he didn't have peaks and troughs. Wand of a left peg and proper composure.

Pretty sure there's absolutely zero correlation between goal celebration and player quality tbh

Disagree, but then we often do.

He looks like he has talent but he has that kind of Bily/Ozil gait which means when the team isn’t playing well he’s usually the one hooked as it appears he’s not grafting like the rest.

ETA: just had a look on their fans forum, they’re not too impressed with him overall. Too lightweight it seems and doesn’t deliver enough every week.

In fairness, one person was moaning that he did nothing apart from win the game with a hat-trick, including two class goals. Sounded like an Evertonian.
