    People talking about his shooting/final ball etc, this was literally his biggest strength last season. It'll come, lacking a touch of sharpness.

    He mentally broke danny rose then physically broke him.

    He'll do that to every fullback he comes up against. I'm so disappointed he couldn't rifle one into the back of the net. Did everything right apart from getting a goal he deserved.

    Im sure it will come. He wont hit the lique 1 numbers but he will get a good amount.

    Needs a run of games with less pressure. Build up his bravoure. Once he gets proper going he’s gonna run riot.

    Pepe is going to destroy defenders and than score goals.

    Over the course of the season I think he's going to light this league up, our main asset in achieving top four.

    He was wasteful but will score plenty when he gets that all important first goal. Generally he may not be that great a finisher but because he gets in good positions, he will score or assist many this season.
    I also like that he has taken over the role of the talisman. He is on all setpieces and everyone passes to him. Means they trust that he is a great player.

    Destined to be absolute WC. Hate on him at your own peril.

    It’s only his second start and both games have been two of our toughest fixtures.

    Him, Lacazette and PEA understandably looked on different wavelengths at times. Let them build up an understanding and they’ll smash it.

    Not too worried about him. Wish he'd gotten a goal for his efforts, but has shown a lot of promise so far for a new player in the league in two of the hardest games we'll play.

    Just needs a goal for his confidence. It took Dennis Bergkamp 7 games before he netted. Henry looked like **** on a stick, before a statue of him appeared outside the ground.

    Excactly, he was overperforming expected Goals and Assists last season and now at the moment is underperforming you could say.

    Important is, that he is getting goal opportunities in every game, thanks to his good movement and his dribbling.
    I think it's only a question of time, he is already very close.

    He already knows what to do with the ball and without.
    With a overlapping Bellerin it will be even better.

    I’ll be worried if he doesn’t score a goal in the first 4 months, he is elite.

    Just needs a goal, he's already doing everything else.

    Get the feeling that once one goes in they'll start piling on.

    The veil between Pires and Gervinho is so unreal for this lad :lol:

    He will come good eventually. Three years from now, Real Madrid will come knocking on our door for him.

    I really love his awkward turns and dribbling, the Sp**s players cant press him at all. The only time he lost the ball are during tricky passes in the final thrid, which are usually difficult qhen u are not gelled yet withthe team. It will come as the season orogress on. Same gosles for his shooting boots, he needs to be more gelled for the attacking phase before he starts banging those in. Overall I am pleased with how he carrises the ball from the deep to the final third. Very involved in our build up phases.

    We didn't drop 80m on a guy who needs a season to learn how to shoot.

    The guy can dribble no denying that. And he will start scoring, he is just trying to much right now. But my god his shooting tehnique is bad. Like Gervinho, Iwobi level of bad.

    Whenever he received the ball on the right, Spuds’ fear of trying to tackle him became more and more apparent. He had their back line on toast.

    He’s so good in tight areas. You couldn’t get the ball off him in a telephone box. He snatched at a few of his shots but he’s clearly just eager to break his duck.

    Reckon he’ll be a top, top signing for us. He’s an extra dimension our team needed.
