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.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.
Sounds like a Raheem Sterling in progressHis 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!
