    It's a thankless task he's been signed for. I think he'd be better off dropping into league 1 and being a first choice pick and getting a run of games. He won't fulfil any possible potential he may be hiding all the time he's coming on for 10/15 minutes at the tail end of a game. I don't think there's a player in there at all, but we can't fairly judge the man because he's never going to get to play for us.

    It's just a shame we felt the need to sign someone else's cast off than take a chance on someone we're investing in in the Development Squad. Is Tilley not going to get a chance? Or Connor Tighe? If we'd signed someone experienced to bridge the gap, you could understand it but we didn't. We signed some other clubs' kid which really doesn't offer us anything at all.
    Excellent post, why not give our own young strikers a chance rather than a loan player that isn't better than what we already have?

      Quite why he was brought on ahead of Tomer on Saturday I have no idea

      Presumably there's a clause that he has to take some part in games, think he's come on in all bar one he's been a sub

      He hasn't had a proper opportunity to show but I remember seeing him play for Arsenal's U 23s against us last season and he was considerably better than any player in our U 23s on that night. he just needs a chance but, as others have said, is unlikely to get it here.

      I can see potential there but, at this moment, it is just that.
      I'd certainly put him above COG
      I believe that COG has more to offer at the moment. He would hold his own in a Div 1 or 2 side but not sure that Akpom could I was excited when we signed Akpom and expected more from him being at Arsenal but I must admit to being disappointed. at the moment but hope that he can prove otherwise. I dont see him as being as good as Wilson more a Manu mk 2.

      Insufficient data to form a considered opinion yet, except to say that he's very quick, quite strong and pretty direct. Good qualities. Scoring would help...

      There's no point slagging the guy off because all it takes is one goal scored at the right time for him to become - like Robbie Reinelt - an Albion legend.

      He's fast, which is good.
      The height of two men, the weight of four, the strength of sixteen.....
