Small update on the lad! He has certainly started well here in Belgium. He scored the 0-1 in a 0-2 win over Lokeren last week (his first game for them). I managed to watch today's game against AA Gent (a team some of you may know, they beat Spurs at home and managed a 2-2 draw at Wembley last season in the Europa League.) Gent is off to a horrible start this season. They went up 0-2 in the first half, but were given a red card.
Taiwo played pretty well. Worked hard, always busy making himself available. Wasn't much of a goal threat today though, he had one really good shot. He was important for Moscron's first goal by chasing down the goalkeeper and he gave the assist for the 2-2. Should've had two assists to be honest, a bad miss by one of his teammates prevented that. He's also a lot stronger than I thought he would be, sometimes holding of 2 or 3 defenders at a time. One of the analysts after the game went as far as saying that if he keeps up this level of playing, he probably won't be playing in Belgium anymore after Christmas. Probably a bit over the top, that comment, but shows that he has played well in his first two games here.
