      I always said that I prefer Darwin for his passion showed but his composure was on another planet.

      Keep it up Cody.

      So happy for him. He finished with the composure and precision you expect of a player at the highest level. Starting look a player is this kid.

      One thing that great for me is he surely a bit faster and stronger than Bobby Firmino, that's hurt for sure to our oppositions :)

      I was wrong a few weeks back when I said about persisting with him in the middle

      You can really start to see what the coaching staff are aiming for with him. He has all the tills to play that role, albeit slightly different to Bobby, but effective none the less.

      Nailed on for that CF role next season for me

      So glad we are getting to see what this player can do now and man why the hell is he taller than anyone even VVD? Didn't even know well he seems the tallest out of everyone and he moves like a ice skater or something, useful though, he's so tall, he glides around the pitch. I tell you what too this guy is clever, you can tell it when he speaks in interviews too, he's gonna be good, I like this scenario more than us all thinking hmm he's not doing much is he.
      Even in this not great season new real talent may have arrived.

      To be honest, him and Nunez are mouth watering prospects. The numbers those two have put in since joining are impressive when you put them in context. We literally give our forwards nothing to work with and those guys numbers are still decent for guys who just joined the team in what is our lowest point in years.

      If we were playing the same football we played last year I think Nunez would easily be at 20+ goals by now (currently at 15) and Gakpo at something between 8 to 10 goals (currently at 5).

      I'm very optimistic about our forward line once other issues are fixed and the lads are given a proper rest in the summer. The one thing I hold that frontline accountable for is the sh*t press we've seen all season. Its a closed circle, press badly, we don't win it high up the pitch which means you don't get the creative input behind you which ultimately means less chances created for you to bury.  Go rest in the summer and no excuses starting game one of next season.

      Seems to be adding intensity to his game as time goes on, better closing and general energy. Like watching him play, his movement and body positions remind me more of Bobby than any of the other front 5, can't pay him more of a compliment than that.  Just hope he continues to progress.

      Some players take longer to develop and to fit in than others but, like Nunez, I think he has the raw materials to be a very good player for us. The hardest work is still to come but whenever I have doubts about young players I always remind myself of what I thought of Hendo when he started out  :)

      He's an excellent footballer and can really see him growing into that Firmino role.

      He has definately shown glimpses of the player he can become in this system. I think the Bobby comparisons are absolutely valid and i suspect Bobby noticed that himself and factored that into his decision to leave the club. Love his composure on the ball and he rarely loses it or makes the wrong pass. He has also shown that he can receive the ball in his own half-turn and drive at defenders. I personally think he will turn out to be a better and more consistent player than Nunez (who i'm still  unsure of).

      After us all being so unsure what he offers, you can definitely see glimpses and what he's going to offer, very useful player all around, I don't really agree with you on Nunez, that's a different player and someone who's had limited service in our tough times but he can still somehow make things happen, and put work in even in defending or whatever, we've had many many strikers with much less given than him to have to worry about him, he's an extra choice and top talent, I have no doubt on that. We have a great mixture of forwards, all we need now is a midfield, a right back and a CB or two, easy. ;D
