    I think it is useful that he's good enough to help us through against weakened teams, at least it means we have someone we can trust in these early cup rounds. I don't see him making his way into the Starting XI but I am becoming less worried about seeing his name there than I was. Backing him & Divvy to take us to Wembley for the Carabao.

    Good points about his strength.

    He seems to have the same issue Keita used to have (and sometimes still) with regard to being pushed off the ball...He needs to work on his balance more so he can withstand those strong challenges. Other than that as others have said he looks like a decent player. Also when I think of Rihad Mahrez who isn't the most strongest looking player either but can hold his own it shows that size isn't everything when it comes to balance, you can still be slim build and be strong. He needs to keep working on his balance, simples.

    His improved performance could be a result of him finding his level - championship level opposition. I know Norwich is in the premier league but they are going down. There are a lot of attackers who look really good in the championship but falter against premier league opposition. Minamino could be one of them.

    He is a squad player, but does need to bulk up to improve. He needed more time to adjust, a) because the PL is a far higher level than the Austrian league b) language barrier c) I think he lives alone which psychologically isn't easy.

    He did well enough at Southampton to suggest to me that he can have a Premier League career.  Not convinced he's long-term top four material though.

    There's always the option of "he's shit" but I'll give him Fellatio anyway. Just sayin.

    I am not sure he can bulk up, but I think he is learning to find spaces and move the ball quickly enough where the physical battle is less important. David Silva never "bulked up". Mina is different player - not a playmaker like Silva - but he could operate in similar space and just needs to think fast enough that there is no time to muscle him off the ball.
