So we are approaching February so we can start to judge Lambert’s signings.
Will be interesting to see what other people think.
Guzan – A no brainer of an idea. I found it stupid that we let him go and kept Given. A very solid keeper, makes good saves, comes for crosses and generally solid
Lowton – Looked a really good solid buy and a decent right back. Recently looked vulnerable and often positionally missing. Think we see a lot more from him but not an attacking full back.
Bennett – Not as bad as some have said. I do not think he is a left back though and could be converted into an attacking Left midfielder
Holman – Not really Lambert’s signing but have to judge. In spells has looked good but he seems lack the strength for this league
Vlaar – I wanted him, I wanted him as the captain but frankly since the injury he has looked shocking. Started well then got an injury that seemed to drag on and on, is he fit ?
KEA – Sorry but like Makoun looks totally unsuited to the pace and physicality of the Premier league and found wanting. Will coming back from the ANC help ?
Westwood – Ok he looks fine but not as good as some say he is. Brought for £1M we have a bit better than that but not what we needed in midfield
Benteke – A massive success. For me a better version of Carew but he really needs to improve the first touch and finishing. I honestly believe he will be here for only one year. His value already doubled and the one to save us.
Bowery – Why ??? does he have anything at all that can improve us, I don’t think so.
