I'm someone that has been critical of him this season. I'll stand by that. I don't think he's good enough now to be a first team regular for a club with our aspirations, and I'm not convinced he'll improve to the extent that he will be in the future. Will he be good enough for another PL team, or to be a useful squad member for us? Sure, why not. But will he be a top, top striker? I'm really not convinced.
Obviously in today's world where deeply held opinions are made or undone in a game or two, I can see why so many people are suddenly singing his praises. I'm delighted that his flick which (I think, not sure) was actually intended for Davies ended up at Gylfi's feet for the first goal, and I'm thrilled that his shot took a massive deflection and went in for the second. But these incidents haven't done much to dispel my scepticism about how good DCL will be.
Obviously all this is caveated with the usual stuff that I hope I'm proved wrong, I understand he's a youngster who wasn't meant to be getting this much first team action, I understand he'll develop lots in the years ahead etc etc.
