    You have a right warped, and quite frankly, stalker-ish view on Karamoko...

    Huge potential.

    He's 19 and will be hit and miss for a while.

    Still delighted to have him at the club.

    Think he'd really suit playing as a second striker.

    He's extremely dangerous when he gets a sight of goal, with either foot. Just doesn't have the skill to go past players often. And I still can't tell if he's quick or not.

    I'll be honest, I'm not overly impressed by him.

    Jota is older and played at a higher level. Abada looks decent for me considering he only turned 20 today. I'm confident he will be far better given a years experience.

    He comes up with a goal or assist in near enough every game he's played. I think he puts in near perfect crosses in most of the time.

    Sure he can't beat a man and can't dribble as well as Forrest but he comes up with the goods.

    At 20, he has a lot of learning still to do..

    He's played a lot more than he probably expected and we've leant on him more than we should have needed to, with injuries to Forrest and Dembele..

    He looked a little jaded in recent games and needs to work on the defensive side of the game, but don't they all lol.

    Aye if we had Forrest fit and this boy was coming on and adding what he has, everyone would be raving about him..

    His number's should be even greater as well. His goal at Tynecastle for starter's and last week on a plate for Ajeti against United. That's only off my head..

    He has a lot of potential and room for improvement. Someone in punditry said it, wingers have 2 or 3 good game's and then some other's where the aren't..

    He needs help..

    I don't think he is that fast.

    I think he is fine when he has momentum going at a defender; otherwise, ordinary (and gets bullied). I do like his presence in and around the box.

    Had a great start to life as a Celtic player, providing goals and assists as well as energy.

    His rawness has been more noticeable in recent weeks. Definitely has a lot to work on but wingers have always been known as inconsistent performers.

    Needs to work on 1-1 scenarios and final pass/cross. I’ve no doubt he can be a big player for us.

    Great wee player and will get better with Forrest coming back in to play

    Guy can't play every game for us, he's not quite at that consistency yet, but having someone like Forrest to learn from and show him the way then it should be a very tidy right wing we have.
    Throw in dembele as well.


    Although add this next bit to almost every aspect of the squad....we need * coaches who know what the * they are doing to help the guy out!
    He's a lot to learn and we need the right people at the club to help educate guys like Abada to become better.

    I’ve no concerns tbh. Doesn’t mean I think he’s the full package yet; he just shouldn’t need to be.
    If the rest of the squad weren’t in the shape that it is, no one would be talking much about his need for improvements, etc, because - at 20 and playing on the wing - that’s almost always the case one way or another.

    He’s plenty of time. Forrest and Dembele back will be huge for him.

    I’m not sure were folk get the idea from his crosses are *. He has regularly whipped decent ball in the problem is there is no one on the end of them. Can whip them in and can play them across goal. I think Jota could’ve done better with one of them on Sunday. Forrest may be better at a lot of things but I’m not sure crossing is one of them.

    Agree with this it is strange as his crossing is generally very good I would say his main limitations are he can be sloppy in possession and he doesn’t have that trick to beat someone. However he does make good 3rd and 4th man runs and shows good anticipation. The biggest issue for us at the moment is having someone to regularly pick him out when he does make good runs.

    He’s overall play has been lacking but we are silly to criticise. He’s still scoring and assisting plenty. Especially for someone 19 just turned 20.



    He was brought in to play second fiddle to Forrest, and while Forrest very well might contribute more during the large majority of games, would struggle even in one of his best seasons to produce the G/A the wee man has.
