We signed him for £18m and what we're getting is an £18m player.
I'm happy with him, maybe look at upgrading him in the next 18 months but for now he's sound.
side the position is logically the one that is under most competition.
Will we play 433 all the time?
Home games vs dross, would we want a more attacking player in there (either James or another)?
I think he’ll be better this year for the reasons outlined above by others.
Also I think physically he takes longer to get up to speed so would expect improvements from Sunday anyway.
Was unfortunate the pass in the first half that he played to DCL straight through the middle hit his foot otherwise would have been a good example of what he can do.
