He needs more end product and more consistency. He's 25 i think? Will his end product suddenly improve now? He's been a full time pro for maybe 9 years, working on his game. Hopefully Critchley can straighten these things out. If he does, his sell on price will be in the millions I should imagine, in today's market.

Inconsistency is rather like disease that can’t be shaken off. Scrafton gave CJ an 8 out of 10 for his efforts at Stoke. I would have given him 9 for the first 20 mins, 6 for the next 25 mins, and about 2 for the second half, when he disappeared out of the game completely. That is reason that he isn’t playing in the PL. He blows hot and cold, even in the same game. I can see him being used as an impact Sub, brought on after an hour or so.

Until he took the penalty on saturday didn't realise he was naturally left footed. Could be one of the reasons his end product from the wings isnt always top notch but seems pretty natural on his right side as well. im surprised with Kaikai being comfortable with both feet and CJ that they dont interchange a bit more.

Second half Stoke had at least two players on him anytime the ball went near him. should have cleared up a bit of space elsewhere but we weren't able to benefit from it.

His reputation at Mansfield was apparently that he was good on his day but quite inconsistent. We have not had him here long enough to know if that will continue.

As for playing him down the middle I saw one friendly perhaps Port Vale where he was extremely dangerous running at their defence but when clean through one on one with their keeper twice he failed to convert.

Surely Kurious you would prefer him on the left!
Sounds like a Raheem Sterling in progress

About 60-odd years ago, Pool were away at Burnley, who put two men on Stanley Mathews with orders to follow him everywhere. After 10 mins, Stan took up the position of Left-Back in Pool’s defence......with two men still marking him. This left Burnley without a Left-Back, AND their Left-Half ( their second man) in their Defence. Pool poured through, and were four up before the plan was abandoned. One wonders why CJ didn’t do something similar ??
