    Theres no doubt that hes a really tidy footballer, technically good and a clever passer seems natural to him to take passes and quickly move it on also beat a player if he needs to.

    Big question is can he defend and could he step in for Brown.

    He’s already improved since pre-season.

    Would start him midweek.

    Surprised how sharp and positive he looked considering he’s not played in about 4 year.

    You can see his ability..

    Takes up good spaces
    Passing is crisp and positive
    He's mobile and gets stuck in

    Really like what I see from him..

    Done well, looks strong for a wee guy but I was mostly impressed by how quick he moved the ball, we will need that urgency when teams are making it difficult for us. Promising

    Like the look of him. Played the ball well going forward and seemed to sit nicely right in front of that defence. Got high hopes for him.

    I hope not.

    He's definitely proved in his fleeting appearances that he deserves a proper crack.

    Think it's time for Soro to get a shot at some first team action. We could do with his strength and energy playing just in front of the defence, providing cover for our defensive weakness and offering an out ball for our full backs when we're getting pinned back.

    All of our other signings have had a crack of the whip, some even getting a good run of games despite repeatedly making mistakes. It seems mental that we're not even prepared to give this guy 30 mins here or there to show what he can do.

    I'd start him against Lille on Thursday, it's a game that doesn't matter much in the long run and we're expected to lose anyway. Rest Brown for the cup semi and let's see what Soro can do up against a decent European side.

    Another waste of money it would appear, through no fault of his own.

    Judging by how he played in pre-season, he would've hauled Wright down without any hesitation when he noticed he was making worrying progress.

    I have completely forgot about this lad.


    * criminal the money that’s been wasted on players and they don’t get a look in.

    For the limited amount of game time I’ve seen him okay he has looked decent.

    I don’t know why he doesn’t get a wee run in the side.

    We are crying out for someone who can make a tackle.

    Good to see him get some game time. Important in breaking up the play with a foul when needed.

    Want to see him get some more game time.
