Getting comfortable at low level football take more toll than anything. He looks great in highlight, but even at Watford, it takes the work of the team to put him in favorable position to play for his strength. Here reading people, I feel like people was expecting Deeney and Ighalo roll into one performance.
I watched this earlier as my brother and I were talking about who he linked up with when he played for Watford (my brother seemed to recall a second striker other than Deeney, but anyway) and what a player he looks; a nightmare in behind, can hold it up fantastically, he harries defenders and keepers to force mistakes and the finishing is superb. Time takes it toll and being out of top level football for a while can have a negative effect for sure, but he doesn't seem to be excelling at anything just at the moment. Even his touch and strength to hold the ball up and bring others into play has gone this year.
And what we pay him is £130k a week plus a hefty loan fee which averaged over the loan takes it to the same as £300k a week. But actually worse because we had to pay it up front.It’s valid because the implication was that’s what we are paying. The only thing that matters from our perspective is what we pay him.
This, plus put bob geldof or the pms specialist (martial) in that same team as he is been stuck in and watch them struggle just as bad, as James and Mata offer feck all for him to play off and neither does the shit MF behind him.He needs time to build his match fitness as he has hardly played for 6 months and it showed from his last few appearances
He didn't look fit at all when he joined, he barely played during the first month, he started to play for us 3 weeks after he joined and it was short cameos.What's weird is that he looked fitter when he first joined than he does now. He just looks too sluggish at the moment.
I think so too. Don't know whether we can do that or if there's a financial penalty, but I'll be surprised if he's registered in the Premier League squad when they're formally announced by the PL.My guess is we will cut short his loan spell.
Seems ludicrous now but wasn't at the time. Tony wasn't firing on all cylinders and Ighalo was a muscular target that made things happen around him, for a short spell at least. God knows where it's all disappeared to. We seem almost unique in the way ALL our players seem to time their poor patches together.His fall from grace is amazing, it wasn't that long ago that a part of the caf was trying to convince everyone that he was better than Martial.
It was ludicrous then because he wasn't playing particularly well and Martial was playing well from February to the end of the season, Ighalo made nothing happen around him, he barely played and had cameos in games where Martial had already scored. Keep in mind that Ighalo plays his first game on February 17th, from that point Martial scored or assisted a goal almost every other game, in the meantime Ighalo played a total of 90 minues in the league, now to his credit he has had 3 or 4 good games against poor teams in cups.Seems ludicrous now but wasn't at the time.
