      He was lucky with that touch, it was miss control :D However, I agree with the argument that our attack lacked effort too.

      I think, his calf was on his mind and his first league game too. Obviously, he only can improve from now on. YNWA Taki.

      It was not miss control at all, he is a very good player who was thrown into one of our toughest matches all season, I'd defy any attacking player to slot seamlessly into our team with its intricate movements.
      I thought it was a good debut which should have been marked with a goal if Mo had passed him the ball when he was in acres of space.

      I'm not a fan who goes in threads arguing against players, but in my opinion, I was not impressed (that said he will be huge for us in the future) and I have the right to say it.

      I'm not here neither for you all to agree with me.

      Let's not forget Ox was awful in his first few games under Klopp and he was a seasoned PL player at that stage.

      Minamino will be fine he looked like he was playing under stricter instructions as he still hasn't learned our system yet.

      You are 100% entitled to your view mate, but you have to admit that that was a very tough game for him to shine in. If he plays today then that will be a much better match to judge him in.

      Obviously, against League one team.

      He needs to learn the language too and gel with his new teammates.

      I will stop here, I will back on here when he has improved and I will be very happy to say that he's much much better than his first impression.

      He can already speak pretty good English. Saw an interview when he first arrived and was surprised how good it was.

      But yes, he will have to gel with the team, as all new signings have to.

      Good run out for Mini again had a couple of occasions where he linked the play well.

      Seems like when he settles in he will be a player who can link play and see things maybe like Firmino.

      Hope to see more and more of him in the coming weeks/months.

      Are you kidding, he was bloody awful, mind you so we're Elliott and Origi. An awful team performance with the exception of Adrian and Jones.

      Nope, while we were poor in the second half as you say I thought he had a couple of great touches and his movement was very encouraging.

      Obviously he still has a way to go to be in contention for our starting 11 but I see quality in him.

      I thought he was pretty invisible meself but no doubt it will take him a few games to get up to full pace. Maybe he doesn't need a winter break!

      His third actual appearance for the club, so why not calm the f**k down!!

      Still settling in for me, especially with it being a mish-mash of senior players, players coming back from injury and younger players

      Loads of time on his side but nothing to see there yesterday to get excited about. Lots of work ahead to get into this team.

      He is one of the players who should be hammering the coaches door down to say I want to play in the replay, alongside tweedle dum and tweedle dummer at the back who had absolute shockers to land us  back in this position.

      Not to mention he is being played as a striker, a position he is least accustomed to playing.

      Plus playing against lower league opposition will toughen him up.

      Yeh he should be playing in the replay he has had a winters break. No.

      Early days yet.  It is a big step from playing in Austrian League to the Premiership.  It will take time.

      I'm not saying he's sh*t, I have high hopes for him but he was sh*te today, did he have a single shot on target?

      I never said you thought he was sh*te, saying he was sh*te today is a tough one considering the team picked and with it being only his third start.

      Maybe harsh from me, but I did expect more, where the f**k is the player who put Virgil on his arse and terrorised our defence.

      Not harsh, an international that's played in the champions league shouldn't be struggling to control the ball under pressure from a low league 1 side.
      Needs to take his chances or he'll spend the rest of this season on the bench more and more.
      However saying that, I do believe after a preseason he will be fine.

      Yesterday, I did not see anything to change my immediate thoughts about him. In the first half, he should have shot with his left not side kick with his right to the stands.

      I'm not saying he's a bad signing but needs to improve.

      Was going for outside of the boot but connected with it all wrong. From the YouTube clips he seems to score with both feet quite happily usually so hopefully that wont become a thing.

      Not been great circumstances he’s played in so far. 2 heavily rotated cup games with a game vs Wolves away in between, when he came on much sooner than what was planned due to Mane getting an injury.

      Hard to fairly judge until we start seeing him in games that are actually going a bit more to plan and with our proper line ups.

      Probably putting more pressure than he needs to on himself too.

      TBH I don't think we should be judging him till at least next season, give the lad time to bed in, new environment, new club, new Country, new team mates etc and we all know it takes some players a lot longer that others.
