Won't believe it until Jim White says we've completed it for £70m

Not a smart signing in my opinion. He averages around 40 days out a year, and that doesn't include his cruciate ligament injury in 2014 or his shoulder injury in 2008 (big layoffs).

Suppose we only need him for 38 and the first games that we get knocked out of the FA Cup and League Cup, so he'll be sound.

Certainly didn’t mean to like that, why such fucking negativity before the guy has even kicked a ball !
It must be horrible to have such a negative outloook, try a little positive thinking instead of raking up negative stats that have no bearing on the future.

Fucking hell, that makes his stats look all the more impressive

If we don't get this done soon the chloroform is going to wear off! Imagine when he wakes up and big Sam is lying next to him with a big satisfied smile on his face.
He's been devastingly underwhelming at goodison and seems to have developed a belief he can run straight through solid objects.

Think he's a good signing personally. If we can keep him fit, he's going to be very useful. Maybe not on the same scale, but I think something like getting Kanchelskis from United was a similar purchase.  I could be wrong, but I think he's going to be loved by the fans. If Allardyce can get anywhere near the upturn in form that he got with Jermaine Defoe, we're going to do alright. :)

He undoubtedly brings a goal threat
There's going to have be a pretty big tactical switch tho for him to carry that threat for us
After the derby I'd have said this will be sound, after Allardyce saying we need to be more boring I just have images of him and tosun 40 yards away from everyone else
Simply simply lovely

Says more about me than him but I don’t really know what kinds of goals he scores. Has anyone got a boss highlight video to whet the old appetite?

Positives :

Fast
Knows the prem
Can score
Can assist
Can be direct
Generally better than what we have in general
Tactically flexibility - RW/LW/ST
Has scored in big, clutch moments
Big club experience
European experience
4-4-2 RW’ers who score are extremely rare and generally expensive
Potential fun return of the ex narrative moment when walcott scores the winner against the arse and wenger explodes.

Negatives
Expensive wages
Age (not too bad but you know)
Injury record
Looks a bit like Lewis Hamilton
Reminds me a bit of Lewis Hamilton
I don’t like Lewis Hamilton
Doubt we can sell him on unless we get a mad China offer 🇨🇳
Potentially horrible flop
Looks like his arse has gone
Feel like he’s probably a bit of a boring slug

Slightly concerned that he will have more onus on him to create and score in a team with so little other attacking quality. He'll be one of our main threats whereas at Arsenal the opposition would have to worry about all areas of the pitch. I think that lack of attacking balance may be why we have suffered so much from the full back situation this season. He does know pressure and expectation though, so hopefully he can do the job.

I think its a great signing, we now have is a bit more creativity, pace and goal threat, allowing us to push the opposition back, they arent going to have free players as we have no attacking threat, they're actually going to have to think about the threats we have and pick them up, this will hopefully free up more space in the central areas.
There have been games when the opposition are happy to go 1 on 1 or 2 v 1 against the likes of DCL and Niasse as you know they wont really hurt you, your not going to do that with our front line now
