    I think he wanted the move as for a while Kyogo was off form and still starting every game and GG was on the sidelines thinking if I can’t get a game now when will I?

    The big man was average.

    Be quite annoying if we sell kyogo this window could have gave the big man the terms he wanted and he’d be first choice if kyogo goes

    He wasn't happy being second choice, at his age he wanted one last big contract, and it's not like we've lacked for goals since.

    He's proper tearing it up down there. Fair play.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing but feel like we could and probably should have got more money for him...

    GG's doing right well... 5 goals in the last 6 MLS games (10 in 14 overall since joining).

    Atlanta Utd undefeated in that run and currently sitting in 5th in the Eastern Conference. He has made a big impact in improving on them since they finished 11th last season, and on a personal level he is now on 10 MLS goals for the seaosn, which puts him joint top in the MLS this season, with 3 others - and chasing his 3rd glden boot in as many seasons in 3 different leagues. That would be quite the feat!

    What is there to moan about?

    He wanted more game time and he wasn’t getting it because he’s not as good as Kyogo. Ange and Celtic aren’t at fault here.

    Aye fair play to the big man but we heard we was not happy since the summer and wanted his move away so no complaints

    He's a natural goalscorer.

    2 things:

    1) that plastic pitch :99:

    2) probably should have gone down and got the goalie sent off in the 13’

    But he got the goal in the end

    He was a great goalscorer, but he was a moody *. I was delighted he left for that reason alone. Was against what the squad stood for I felt. Still should have gotten more money for him.

    He already was a goal machine - 2 golden boots to his name - and would've been great have him here for longer. However, sadly he wanted away. Can't keep hold of someone who wants to be elsewhere or wants more football than what was available.
