Was very hard to judge him over the 5 min cameos but one thing stood out was his desire to chase, harass,pressure and polax his opponent in 50/50s. He’s traore with an end product and I am very happy today to let traore go knowing this boy will be twice the player traore thinks he is.

He still reminds me of Ndah rather than Traore. His crossing is brilliant and after watching him today and in U23s you can see he has that get you off your seat ability.

Just watched highlights. What a cross for the equaliser. A thing of beauty :D A couple of runs he did, too, just glided past players with lightening pace.

Baller.

Looks like he could be the best crosser of the ball we've had at the club in a while...

I understand he can play on the left as well. Seem to recall someone saying, when we signed him that whilst his assists had mainly come from wide right positions, his goals came from playing on the left, where he usually cuts inside rather than crossing the ball.

He's looked dangerous in every appearance. Unless there is something odd behind the scenes, it's a failure of management that we have got him on the field so rarely in recent months.

Agreed mate.

My only justification to such is that he was bought in predominantly for the future and would spend time in the reserves before being implemented more next season etc. Although he is 22.

But he's proving far more than that in the present. Really likable player. Looks like he'll be a huge snip at 3m.

He hit the cross first time when Trincao (brilliant goal by the way) played the ball to him. No hesitation and a great ball in for Conor. On a plate.

Normally (yes normally) you would expect a player in that position to put his foot on the ball, look up and see who is in the box. Not this time. First time cross on the money and thank you very much!

He’s raw, but for 20 minutes he gave everything. Chased back, won tackles and. created our equaliser.

His cameo will give him loads of confidence.

Adama’s replacement anyone?

The fact he can also play either wing and at RWB makes him a real asset especially in games like today when we are throwing people into the box for him to cross it into, can see why they are looking towards a target man in the summer

The most impressive thing was the desire and battle. Qualities every single player should have showed. Everything else was just icing on the cake.

Visibly lifted the entire team who did pretty much what happens whenever we go behind which is fall apart.

Loved the versatility he offered today.

Looked more of the wider midfielder in a central 3, and was switched on enough to do the work defensively.

He seems to have a lot of strings to his bow.

Think he is good for twenty mins here and there for now but starting him would be a concern. Very raw player and three quarters of the game is how you play without the ball.

Next season ideally id like to see, Neto, Traore, Trinc and Chiquinho competing for the wide positions and Podence and MGW competing for the "10" role.....
Hwang is surplus to requirements.

Can't remember which cameo it was, but remember thinking he really got stuck in and looked strong on the ball. That with his ability and pace is very exciting and God knows how we've snapped him up for so little £££?!

Did you see him run as well. So quick. Left Chelsea defenders in his wake.

Everyone getting a bit carried away here.

There’s a huge difference between starting a game and having that impact across 90 minutes, compared to coming on when we’re chasing the game and having license to attack at will.

Although he probably deserves a start, I still think he’s primarily an excellent bench player.

Thought he was excellent and seemed to really unsettle Chelsea. Can only think that they didn’t know anything about him and they were surprised to see this aggressive, strong, quick bloke suddenly start running at them! The cross for Coady’s goal was beautiful too. Excited to see more from him.

Think he is best as a sub myself for teams like man city, Nuno was right you have to stay in the game, but Norwich at home is different and playing chiquhino and being on the front foot from the off , is probably the sort of descision we need against the weaker defences at home....it's not new though, it's all very similar to Nuno trying adama at RWB..

Great to see his progression, looks an exciting player, in the same vein as Traore, hopefully will turn out even better. Players of that type by their nature will get criticism but there's no doubt when he gets on the ball in advanced positions, well all be hovering on the edge of our seats.
Doubt he'll start against City but hopefully will play some part later.
