Well, it’s quite a simple question, that was submitted by “Craig”.
It was posted in the “submit an article” section, probably accidently, but it’s a good question, regardless, in asking what we think of him;
“Why didn’t we pay for a decent forward. Wesley is rubbish. Very bad business . Should of got a proven PL striker and paid the money”
To my mind, that’s incredibly harsh.
How can you judge a young attacker/striker playing in a new country, in the toughest league in the world, after just two games?
Simple answer is, you can’t.
I’ve already said I thought Wesley was ridiculously soft against Spurs, but I genuinely think he was shocked by what he had to face, in that he got a bit of “treatment” that he’d never had to hand back before.
But I thought he looked better against Bournemouth and while still maybe not quite up to what’s required, I think he will learn quickly and get up to speed.
The argument that we should have bought another striker in is valid, but I suspect it was a case of “you can’t do it all at once”.
While I suspect he might need some serious help over the season, I think he’ll be okay.
What I don’t want is him being the scapegoat for us not getting enough goals overall.
