    Exactly what I expected from him. Don’t necessarily take that as me being stunned with glee

    he’s clearly a very very talented lad. In Dingwall in winter…..we shall see.

    Its 88 million Euros, when Jota was 19 Real offered Benfica 18 million Euros for him but they wanted 30 million which was his buy out at the time, before signing the new deal that upped his buy out clause.

    Due to his attitude issues thinking he has made it and that teams like Real where after him he got too big for his boots, never broke through at Benfica and was put out on loan, which wasn’t that successful last year.

    we have a 7 million euro option to buy him in place.

    Very good performance today and could be a big player for us this season put in some nice crosses and also mixed it up by cutting in and having a go

    If he has a good season he will not stay with us.

    Hopefully he can get a goal early on as his first half performance was decent but something of his good play will help really get his confidence up and Jota firing as our lack of other options out there means we need him to be.

    Looks an exciting player. Pretty much what I expected tbh, great on the ball, always opening up space but end product will need worked on.

    Seems to have the ability to beat a player like prime paddy Roberts but not the finishing ability to match.

    Definitely one to excite us.

    He won't be helped by Taylor behind him. Need better in the left back area.

    Seemed to fade out of it second half but impressive first half.
    Actually excited about seeing him and Monty starting together next home league game.

    I don’t get why everyone repeats that he “faded out” in the second half.

    a winger can only usually get involved if the ball goes down his side…. And we were mostly going down the right and through the middle yesterday.

    It was like everyone saying Abada faded out against Rangers even though most of our attack was going down the left.

    County playing with every man behind the ball makes it hard to judge him. Let's see what he has got against teams that open up a bit more.

    Two European games this month will tell us far more about his character and what he has to offer us going forward.

    Was excellent first half but anonymous in the 2nd. Hopefully it was just tiredness and not a sign of things to come.

    Looks like he will grow into a good players as he gets time with the squad and on the pitch. Carried the ball well, played some very neat well seen passes.

    Think Taylor really helped him when he was on, he consistently went on the overlap and made sure he couldn’t get doubled up on. He exploited that, kinda stopped when Montgomery came on even though he was personally better than Taylor was.

    Guy looks a * baller but.

    Kyogo’s going to love him.

    Jota looks a skillful player but he needs to play smart in my opinion. He played to the crowd a bit with his tight ball control and delayed his crosses instead of concentrating on supplying the middle with balls on the deck for Ajeti and in quick time. The more he lingers the more the defenders have time to pick up their opponents. Granted he did put in some good crosses in the first half. He also looks exciting when he cuts in but he needs to have a powerful shot to back up the move. He looks a good prospect.

    I did not get to see the second half, trouble with the link to the game.

    Impressed by this guy tonight. A lot of our game went down his channel. A lot of pressure on him.

    His end product isn't outstanding, but its good. He's got a few tricks and the bottle to run at his man.

    He'll add something to us this season.

    He will be very valuable over the course of the season. But is a luxury player in terms of defensive work and that means a change needed defensively on that side in Europe imo

    No thanks. Negative as *. He’s not the reason we’ve shipped 4 goals.

    No - he’s not, hence saying if we use that luxury and quality he has going forward, the gaping space and lack of coverage behind him needs a bit more defensively.

    Abada does offer a bit more in terms of tracking back IMO. I think that’s reasonable to say
