The Palace goal was one thing but for me the boy has now elevated himself to Murray and Zamora levels after that today!

Anyone who scores a 99th minute equaliser against that lot is a hero for life to me, he can miss as many as he likes now!

He actually played okay today in a very poor overall team performance. However, he did miss an absolute sitter as well, thank goodness he came through.

Forget the away fans, your primary job after scoring an equaliser, when we had 10 men, in the 98th minute is to shithouse as many home fans as possible. Job well and truly DONE (again). Brilliant :D

I’ll let him off with the “sitter” as the ball was played slightly behind him, making him check his stride.

The goal? Class. It took a few replays for me to really admire the touch taken to control the ball before firing it home. It took a few more for me to realise he’d looked up to check JWP’s position and clock he was well onside, giving him the time to place the final shot.

He talks about this in the immediate post-match interview with BBC Radio Sussex - he checked and knew JWP was playing him onside, and he’d looked around and knew he had time to take a touch before shooting……..fantastic awareness and intelligence

Said it before and I’ll say it again the man is a natural goal scorer. Give him a nanosecond to size up an opportunity and he’ll gobble
up the chance.

Give him seconds to think about it and he struggles. Somehow we just have to play to that strength more often, play deeper in the final third, take more long range shots that could be spilled etc and he’ll be there to pac man his way through those chances.

Given the chances he misses, definitely not a natural goalscorer.

But, no one can doubt that he does have ability.

Surely there is a big difference between clinical and natural goal scoring? Harry Kane (28) & Mo Salah (29) appear clinical in that they score all types of goals most of the time, whereas Neal (25) appears to produce worldies with natural nonchalance but can also wield the banjo at the cow’s arse and miss… Often. He’s definitely a natural goalscorer but not (yet) a clinical one.
