Is there still time to loan him out? I had sleepless nights when were thinking of signing him and now I have insomnia. Every post of mine about him has been negative based on he is completely shit. He adds nothing going forward at all and needs replacing. i suggested him at left back to actually utilize him but he is a waste of money and Rowett will suffer if he doesn't drop him out of sight. Should be used as a sub when were consolidating a win only. Choupo should be in Wednesday.
It'd be harsh to drop him this early, but I'd be sorely, sorely tempted
Ince played well when switched to the left. I'd keep him there and play Diouf right. McClean has very little end product in terms of passes/ crosses or shots on goal.
Diouf never has been and never will be a right winger. Hughes played him wide, Lambert played him wide and now Rowett is trying the same thing. It won’t work. Classic definition of insanity: trying the same thing over and over, hoping for different result.
Most people that can’t do nothing about it knew what we were getting with him before he signed, what kind of player he was. Yet the people who could have stopped this happening seem to have no clue how useless he has been in his career, so went and spent £6 million on him.
Any wonder why we are already struggling, and it’s only 3 games in.
To me he looks a really poor signing. We desperately need an injection of pace so to spend £6 million and considerable time/effort on signing a slow 29 yr old winger felt daft at the time and the early evidence suggests it was. That's not even counting all the baggage that he brings, whatever your thoughts on it.
I hope he ups his game and proves us wrong but he looks like yet another example of the abysmally bad recruitment policy that has blighted us over the last few seasons.

West Brom certainly saw us coming - three times for fecks sake!
1st. Berahino. £16m plus £75k a week for 5 years. Hasn’t scored other than with a hooker for two years 2nd. Fletcher ok a free but expensive wages for a finished footballer 3rd. McClean. £6m and another high wage for 4 years. Crap and always has been
What have we done to WBA for them to offload their garbage on a fellow Midlands team.
We’ll be be taking Chadl next on loan with option to buy for £15m and pay him £50k a week to be permanently injured!
