Well to me he did ok having scored two tap ins and one assist and involved in another. He still looked , at least to me , as being a little short of Premiership quality. Hopefully however he may have increased his resale value which could be beneficial to us.

OK is the word; nothing more than that. Northern Ireland were hardly a premier league defence. They looked even worse than the Clowns did against us when they changed their team!

Hopefully, he hasn't done his resale value any harm.

I really think we have messed up big time on this one!

Quite possibly, but that's all in the past. We really need to focus on how we make the most of his current form and get a good deal in place so we have some funds we might just be allowed to reinvest in the squad.

Including upping his deal to reflect his improved form and price out Turkish competition.

I agree. Personally I don't think that he was given enough of a chance. I know that he looked lost and rather hopeless in some games but we've now seen what he's capable of at a higher level (and what put him on our radar in the first place), so you have to question the environment at Palace which stopped him showing his talent. There are players that we've really gone out on a limb to nurture and protect over the years, so-called 'bad boys' that are given a chance here. Sorloth doesn't even fall into the latter category but for a young lad moving countries and coming to a really competitive league the management didn't do enough to support him and get the best out of him. That needs to be looked at or we'll let more talent slip away or worse not even be able to attract them.

He was never given a chance to flourish.
Can see the irony heading our way with him playing in the Champions League and ourselves struggling to avoid the drop.
In Roy we trust!!

Iím inclined to agree. I have never made any statements on Sorloth,s ability, because this for me has always revolved around whether he could score or not. For me his general play was always OK . But in our situation if he didnít actually score goals it would be hard to make a case for him.
This has turned out to be that nightmare situation of over reaction,, looking at him now it looks that his confidence went in his time with us, if he had turned it on at Ghent, maybe we would not have panicked into the Turkish deal..
The fact remains we messed up in a difficult situation, because itís now obvious patience with him was needed.

A significant upgrade on Benteke

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace
