Good point, it's been awhile since we've had someone like this. He's fairly good with the ball at his feet as well though not in v Persie's league. Still he heads much better and it's nice to have another dimension in attack, especially now that Theo's is getting more accurate with his crosses. Before, it was endlessly trying to walk the ball into the net.
I'm still not totally sold on IPod but his work rate was good on the left on Saturday. Wish he had a bit more pace but he's got plenty of guile.
