Balogun - Solid Nigerian steel

Defintely looked decent. However, let's not go overboard like we usually do, just yet. See Coulibaly, Ejaria and Ojo for reference.

Today was against a team hell bent on not attacking. Balogun's time for judgement has still to come.

Let’s not get excited. He did well, but was completely untested by a very poor Aberdeen team.

the fact he has some pace does make me more comfortable than with Helander though.
This is a fair comment, it’ll take a few more games to make full judgement but certainly a very promising start. Pace to burn for a CB, which isn’t something any of our other CBs have, not just Helander.

I said on his signing thread that he was never here to play back-up to Edmundson. Balogun was playing a league or two above the level GE arrived from.


Looked great today. Won everything in the air without really being up against much. Showed great pace, looks like a great addition.

His turn of pace to nullify the sheep counter was impressive.

He and Goldson looked quite comfortable but as pointed out the sheep are a horrendous footballing outfit

He can carry the ball into, and even beyond, midfield too to create more space for others. Something we were desperately missing last season. Outstanding today.

Solid debut by the big man!

Him and Goldson responded well to the Highland league tactics of the Sheep. That wee schoolboy striker won nothing all game.
