    Start him wide right in the next couple of games. Forrest has really taken a dip.

    Wins the ball on our box and then takes their whole left side out like bit he's before laying it in a plate for Weah..

    Hindsight and all that but he was always gonna be more effective at a ground like Rugby Park that Edouard who drops deep and doesn't have the workrate or press to his game, yet..

    I’d play him and edouard together... see how they bounce off each other. Burke sitting in behind and drop Christie. Canny see it Happenin though

    Right now, I'd drop Forrest for him and play him wide right.

    Forrest hasn't kicked a ball in weeks.

    Aye good shout actually. Weah deserves a bash in number 10 linking the play up come to think about it.

    I'd like to see him in his natural position.

    That's what he can offer. All his good work comes down the channels.

    Was a odd decision to drop him for Edoaurd. Edoaurd for me needs to make the most of getting game time like all the others have done. Can’t live off a few good performances this seasons, needs to up it.

    Funny that nobody that was arguing that the tackle that led to Eddy’s last injury was completely fine aren’t complaining about Broadfoots sending off.

    Practically the exact same tackle.

    The one on Eddy was arguably worse. It was also a pen.

    Anyway, back to Burke. There is something about him I really like. Of all the loan signings I think he's had the most impact, even though wee Weah has been a wee star too.

    I don't think Broadfoot's was a red. Brown was very clever about it, brave too as he really took one for the team.
    They also were similar, but definitely not exactly the same.


    I do like Burke, but how can a lad who has cost so much in transfers have such a bad touch. It is ment

    Someone needs to teach him how to win penalties. With his pace last night he got away twice but was forced wide. He needs to learn to cut across defenders in the box, and if they touch him its highly likely a pen. If not he takes them out of the game. Too often he takes the "nicey nicey option" stopping and looking for support. Got to be more ruthless.

    He’s still learning the role, needs to watch clips of Griff in box in how to get quick shots away and get in the right position. He’s not got the penalty box instinct and clearly looks like a winger, but then he’s not played much and europe is a big step up.

    He's just far too clumsy and his second touch is a tackle. No finesse or culture to his play whatsoever.
    Big , strong , aggressive , powerful. That's all well and good but a Brendan Rodger's side will always be hindered if you can't consistently retain possession and recycle the ball. This guy loses it 50% of the time.

    I like Burke and think if the option comes to sign him we should take it. Not at the prices being reported though. £5/6M I think would be a much fairer price. We will have to see if there is any room for negotiation in the summer.

    Going into next season with the option of Griff, Burke, eduaord and bayo gives us 4 very different options. I would consider ourselves looking fairly healthy in that position.

    For the money required he wouldn't be worth it. It is amazing he has gone this far in the game with such bad control. His pace and power redeems him sometimes, but it is shocking.

    Personally think he's a cracking player and caused Valencia all sorts of problems last night.

    Would love to sign him on a permanent deal, but another loan would be ok with me too.

    I think he'd be greater to have in the qualifiers.
