    Maybe he needs time for the team to gel. It'll take at least 3-4 months before that happens. Lets wait and see. I'm sure they'll have a good 2nd half of the season.

      You know, I quite like Kenwyne Jones. Anyone who watches the middling clubs care to share an opinion? Everytime I've seen him I come away impressed.

        He's a good target man, but he's got a pretty unique explosiveness about him as well, I've seen him chest a ball down and then leave the defender behind a lot of times. Seems to have ego problems, though, he's definitely quite selfish. At first the Bent and jones partnership looked awesome, and Bent was able to play off of Jones a lot, but I think Jones preferred to be the finisher, and that wasn't going to work.

        I think he's a good coup for Pulis. Definitely a good striker, but he's more of a physical specimen than anything else. Not much of a passer, and there are a lot of other target men who are better headers and finishers. Decent dribbling and excellent first touch though. Pretty standard target man with limited technique. A very poor man's Drogba, to oversimplify.

          Interesting. Yeah that's about the impression I've gotten. Certainly no where near Drogba's class, but I can see the simplified comparison. I was saying in the Man U thread how I saw Nani play against Bayern and got a "woah, this guy is reallllly good" feeling like I very seldom do. Other players who have given me that were Messi in the 2006 World Cup (limited minutes, but it was still just like "holy **** this kid is going to be a superstar"), Drogba probably in his first or second year at Chelsea, Ronaldo probably in his first or second year at United, and... that's basically it that I can remember right now.

            Yeah Nim,
            I had seen him play long back for Southampton and considering his size and Structure, he seems to have good decent pace and strength in the air too.

            I have a funny feeling about such players who dont make it so great...
            Cause the big clubs wont ever play them.

            This guy would have been / can be a huge hit in the same mould as Dwight Yorke if he plays at a big club...
            For a team with long balls..there aint a better target man than him..

              Nah, I can think of a few in the Prem alone. Carlton Cole is better, and Drogba is miles ahead of him. I'd say Carew might be better, too. He doesn't have the technique to be a first-choice player at a CL club. Europa league at most.

              Still a good player, though, just not complete enough. I think Stoke is a good club for him, haven't had much chance to watch them yet, but I hope to see him and Fuller player together soon. Good players, both of them.

                even dwight yorke played for a average aston villa team and went on to play some amazing football for united..
                its that presence some players have
                but the market nowadays prevents clubs taking risks..

                for us united fans, javier hernandez is still a risk...a few good games and good prospects...but you never know..

                  I'm not saying players can't make the jump. You're just thinking about the idea of Kenwyne Jones, and not the actual player. Kenwyne Jones is not good enough to play at any top club. Dwight Yorke was.

                    lol I bet a better comparison would be Louis Saha. Wasn't a top player but did well for us. He was as good as our other players.

                    Yorke used to score 20+ goals a season for Villa.

                      I love the 3D graphic stuff for the new intro ... but this song has been stuck in my head for a while now -- anyone know who it's by or what it's called?

                            What a blast from Ben Arfa. That goalie had no chance.

                              Haven't seen it yet, but surely it's not as ridiculous as Cesc's goal?

                              Also, **** Glen Johnson and Theo Walcott and get the Youngs (Luke and Ashley) in the NT now.

                                Besides the "WTF" goal, he made a great perfomance, i take the risk to say that if he wasnt subbed in, Tottenham would lose.
