3 million to estoril is a lot of money. We got in before the big portuguese three got there first.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 £££?!
As long as he can sit, with his only responsibility being run around, win possession, and give it to the nearest player, he’s far better, and his whole limited game and confidence improve as soon as that’s all that’s asked of him.He really does.
He actually won the ball back quite a lot today. He's just not an AM
Why do people keep saying raw? Raw would imply error prone and/or poor decision making. I havent seen any of that.
Booooo. Get carried away!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.
He's already got more assists than Traore this season in the Prem.
Don’t think a poll will be necessary…Is there a poll out yet as to when he will become the next scapegoat??
if we are going to continue shopping in Portugal for players and there is no reason why we won’t, this is exactly the model we should be following, look for players who can do a job for us at clubs like Estoril, Braga and Boavista Etc. for a few million instead of letting Porto, Benfica and Sporting hoover them up initially before selling them on to us at inflated prices.3 million to estoril is a lot of money. We got in before the big portuguese three got there first.
Next hopefully is andre franco on a free from there.
Unlike Adama, who is a cross between an Olympic sprinter and a weight-lifter, Chiquinho actually looks and thinks like a proper footballer. You can't coach that. For me he is a starter next season. I want to see him on one side and Neto on the other. If Raul can get back to something even 80% of his old self, those three could cause fireworks. Podence in behind wouldn't be bad either.I think at the moment i'd still use him as an impact sub but i'd be trying to give him more game time in that role. Bit soon to say he is a step up from Adama but the potential is certainley there.
I ****in despair if that is the case . This stinks of another "Sellars cluster****" of a decision if true.According to The Athletic we’re thinking of loaning him out next season. Can’t see it myself as he could be an excellent impact sub with 5 subs next season probably enhancing his opportunities.
Spot on. He's shown he can do what he's meant to do within the team. In this league on the few occasions he's played he's taken his chance to shine.Pointless loaning him out I’d give him a chance better to develop him here than another club. He’s good enough at this level Saturday showed it
Exactly how can the club expect him to get any better without playing lolI think that quote has been taken out of context slightly, the actual quote was:
“The club have been considering sending him out on loan next season and that may still be the case, but performances such as the one Chiquinho gave at Stamford Bridge show he undeniably has the quality to make a Premier League impact now.”
To me that reads as something they’ve been considering as an option in general (as they should be, assessing every option for every player to see what’s best for them and the club) rather than watching him against Chelsea and going “he’s alright isn’t he, he’ll do a great job for Grasshoppers next season” as it seems to being taken.
