    Abada at least looks like he’s trying to help out, just doesn’t know where to go or that.


    Jota was miles away from their LB anytime he had the ball.

    Thing is, Forrest is the perfect player to learn from when it comes to tracking back and helping the defence.

    He's excellent at it, offers so much protection to the RB.

    Dangerous and offers something different but still plenty to go. The reservations about him are justified.

    Bags of skill, hopefully will learn to cross low into the box. Not offers much tracking back, which is vital in Europe.
    An exciting talent.

    If he can stay fit and gets the minutes in the legs he's going to be unreal, especially domestically.

    Defensively he's not the soundest but he still tries, is energetic and rest assured he is going to leave opposition players on their * with his trickery. We have badly missed someone like that.

    Read rumours we are trying to sign him permanently already and I can see why.

    I think we have a big player here.

    Very exciting going forward, always looking to attack or pass forward. Bit suss defensively but a wee read of the Jamesy Forrest playbook could sort that. Looking forward to seeing more of him.

    His ability on the ball was top drawer..

    So many time's skinned his man with ease and drew them in. Little drag back's and lay offs..

    Had it all bar his own goal really..

    He's a player who's gonna do damage domestically. Beating his man 1 on 1 and having the likes of Kyogo on the last defender. Abada or Forrest running beyond etc. Will be hard to stop..

    Looked really good, he will be brilliant domestically, especially at home.

    Totally agree and of course Forrest has so much experience that can only be good for both Jota to learn from.
