As a traditional right winger he never seems to be able to pick a man out with a cross - kind of a basic?
His short passing & control seems ok, tho he seems to run down blind alleys sometimes. Useful if we are running down the clock though.
For an attacking player he never seems a threat on goal?
His tackling is ďmiddlingĒ - heís not Allen but heís not James either, so he does a job.
I get the feeling heís neither one thing nor the other in terms of position, which doesnít help.
However, there must be something there to play for Arsenal so long & to start under Carlo?
Squad player to me
He actually looks like an athletic and strong footballer until he gets the ball. His running with the ball again looks great. However thatís where it stops.
The moment he wakes up with the ball he goes into panic mode. Decision making with passing is generally awful and results in giving it away.
He doesnít have the pace to go outside and defenders double up and show him inside. Usually resulting in a lost ball. His alternative is an angled cross which is under hit and cleared by the first defender.
Canít really fault his work rate, certainly compared to some others.
Shooting ability looks pretty non existent.
Overall Iím sorry but I just donít see any sign that he will ever succeed here. Wish him well but looks like a big financial write off
