[Albion] After all the hype... Percy Tau looks the real deal

Albion and Premier League latest from Sky Sports

Good god. Can we not wait a while before forming judgments?
So, he's the real deal. If that's the case, how many goals are you expecting from him this season?

He had a good game. But Trossard was also impressive on debut.

Reserving judgement for a later date. But happy so far.

The only downside of Tau's stellar premier league debut are the SA fans on facebook and instagram...

big nuts

We looked far less of a threat when he went off. He’s the kind of player we needed when we dropped points against fellow strugglers at home.

He could be key in turning performances into points.

Sussex, by the sea
An encouraging start.

His body language looks 20 time better than either Connolly or Maupay, hopping about, twitching, raring to go.

No doubt he'll get dragged down soon enough ;-)

I'd like to see him up front with Zeqiri or preferable Welbeck

He didn't get much possession but when he did, his play was intelligent and he looked lively. I was disappointed Potter took him off when we were still very much in with a chance of nicking something. Had we been getting thumped, fair enough, save him for Leeds. Always more likely to pinch something with Tau than an out of sorts Maupay.

Very promising PL debut. If he can score goals as well he could make the difference in the second half of the season

He played well tonight and the thing I liked the most is after we lost the ball at a corner and they broke quickly, he sprinted the full length of the pitch, busting a gut to get back.

Early days so far, but he and even fleetingly, Khadra both looked like rough diamonds with potential

Looked good when he was on the ball but seemed to spend a fair bit of time out of the game at times, fully understandable when you are making your Prem debut. Like Big Mac give him time and he could prove to be a cracking player
