I thought he just oozed class, he has that arrogant strut around the pitch that leaves you wondering how someone who seems to move so economically seems to be always in the right place. The weight of pass is a very good point as it allows the receiver to let the ball do a lot of the work for him.

But, I have to caution myself, it's very similar to how I saw Schneiderlin's performances when he first arrived. Having said that, given this was his first competitive outing in 6 months, he really impressed and the potential is mind-blowing.

In fairness, I do think comparisons with Davies are unfair to Davies. There are very few 20 year old CM's in their second full season who would stand comparison against a 25 year old good enough to be taken by Barcelona. Davies has time and possibly a much needed role model on his side.

Well, if it was only an infatuation before it is now full on love. I may even get religion if this man continues his beatific ways. Melting.

Very willing to change my mind.

It's just that he has to do a lot more than he's shown at any point in his career to be worth top money and I don't expect him to do that.

Can't really argue as, before he came to us, I'd seen nothing of him. But...if Nuno saw enough to take him from Benfica to Valencia and then Barca saw enough to pay £30M plus for him then it does seem he must have shown something at some point in his career.

Personally, I really like the look of him but, as I've said before, I thought Schneiderlin was something of a Rolls Royce when he first played for us. What do I know?

He's played a couple of games and hasn't looked out of place while still finding his feet in the Premier League. Let's give him at least until January before we venerate or denigrate.

Ahhh, that brightened a miserable January afternoon! There is no end to this man's gorgeousness. Hope he stays and becomes the player we dream he is.

The signing I wanted more than any other.

Boss player. Will go down as a legend here. Best midfielder since Arteta.
I dream he is this generation's Peter Reid. Yep, that'll keep me going until August.

He doesn’t seem as calm and refined as Reidy ;)
Nor is he as good looking, but we have to make do!
