    OK Mr Grinch. The discussion is about how good might he become, not is he the finished article. "At present" is a different question.

    He's already had "real" tests against Prem sides, so Liverpool and Man U not really relevant. How far do you think he might go?
    To be fair calling him 'Mr Grinch' is a tad harsh for having an opinion. You did say how good is he, not how good will he be.

      Maybe a tad harsh - but the opinion was delivered in a pretty Grinchy manner!

      Pretty bloody good so far, with potential to go a long way. Certainly good enough for where we are currently - think he'll be a POTS contender. Good first touch, rapid, can tackle, can run with the ball, doesn't give up, pretty strong too. Decision making will get better with experience/coaching and could improve his crossing.

      Mr Grinch thinks he may go all the way. I read the thread title as to how good he is, I assumed that meant now as I didn’t actually read the first post

      I have seen a few ott comments about him, one being that he’ll be gone to a big club in the summer and no I don’t think he’s that good just yet. Hence my comments about seeing how he does against top sides. He did well against Arsenal but he also made errors in that game that could have cost us.

      Exciting player with loads of potential.

      I can live with being called Mr Grinch, I don’t much like the hype surrounding Xmas but the girls/women in my office bloody love it. They regularly refer to me as The Grinch during December

      We need another Bernardo type player on the right both doubling up as pacey wingers to strike fear into the opposition.

      Bong is a good defender but I always feel that he doesn't trust his left foot enough to put the crosses in where it is supposed to hurt, which defeats the objective of the game.

      He's going to be very good indeed. Last night there were two moments where he could have done better - he was clean through on goal at 2-0 and shot straight at the keeper, and a few minutes later he was muscled out of a challenge by Antonio which gave them their second.Thing is though, both of these are areas where he can, and most probably will, improve - and then he is a very complete player.

      I'm actually wondering where his best position is, left-back seems almost a waste. When he came he said that centre-back is his preferred position, but also plays defensive midfield. Both Gareth Bale and Gareth Barry started at left-back and went on to great things....
