    Yep, as said earlier, it's a new season so it's time to wipe the slate clean. Hopefully he stays fit and pushes on. It's not really surprising that Pat has exaggerated his way through this one though, I mean, it's an easy win today for City too, says the superfan.

    Before he got injured he was really starting to find his feet. Some really good performances, in between some not so good, but things were looking up. Make or break season? Possibly so.

    You really are a massive downer. I’m saying you should be happy clappy, but you are at least consistently being a twat.

    Agreed, he did well when he came on.

    Was great to finally see one of our midfielders receive the ball from defence, turn & look to play it forward.

    He made a difference when he came on, we need a player like he or Ox in our midfield.

    Agreed. Even more so against weaker opposition. I feel he is up to speed with the league, opponents, physicality and our own style now. We just need him to convert that into performances.

    Yep, I can see him scoring quite a few goals from midfield if he manages that too, he seems to get in the right positions very often, just needs some more conviction and confidence when converting, I'm sure that'll come.

    Hardly an exaggeration and not sure what the correlation between that a friendly prediction is but hey ho.

    I’ve never claimed to be a superfan thank you.

    If a realistic assessment of his performance is being a downer then so be it.

    His national coach was fired recently for ignoring injury notes from doctors I heard, which is probs part of Keitas issue

    So I guess the doctor pay the National FA better than the coach does.
