i remember in the other thread when he was announced that i said he good pickup when others were scratching their heads a little, great to see he did well. 


Now I'll say the reason I think wasn't too successfully at Heart/City from what I remember. He was largely inconsistent for much of his career - but he showed some real hunger - hopefully can continue, provided much needed depth in CM. Can also strike a ball as well.

Brilliant touch, really encouraging debut.


That one move in the first half where he combined with Bridge and Ruka and got into the box...haven't seen us play like that for a long time.

I actually thought the same. 'This is very unwaderers like'.


We need those changes as were too predictable. Even opponents know where and when to move before our players pass the ball as we always play the same way.

Popa's reaction to the bicycle kick was priceless(anyone able to make that into a gif), did well out there and has good physical presence in midfield which is what eere lacking. Not bad.


There were several times the camera cut to him and he was clapping and smiling even.


Therefore, he's obviously not too fussed - the goals just aren't coming at the moment, but they'll come soon.

Broke the goal-scoring drought with a good shot - he's not a natural number ten but he can hold the ball up alright, seems to control the ball well at the feet and can pass well enough. I think he'll do nicely at the #10. Not super flash, not terrible but... I think he'll do nicely.


And if he can shoot from distance as well, that'd be awesome!
