The manager explained clearly his reasons for starting Roofe and not Morelos last night. I suspect he and his management team have a plan for introducing Itten into the team at the appropriate times. I would trust them.
For Itten see Morelos when he first sighed. Will score goals in cameos but is nowhere near ready to be our leading striker. When Morelos leaves, that’s when Itten has got to step up.
He is class but he’s not ready yet and that’s not a criticism
Morelos wasn’t ready when he first signed. He was scoring goals in cameos like I said?Not really true, Morelos was starting just about every league game right from the off and was scoring goals. Albeit back then he didn't have the same level of competition Itten does today.
I get he's got some tough competition ahead of him but is it just that? Carrying an injury? Not doing it in training?He's 24 next month so I'd hardly say he is "young" but given you think I am looking for something wrong you can be excused for talking rubbish here.
He’s there to progress, he’s not Gona be a first team player just now, I reckon it will be next season until we see more of him.What do we think is going on with this guy?
Since that fantastic cameo at Motherwell a couple of weeks back he's barely featured which has surprised me, felt like that was the game that would really elevate his presence in the team but it appears to have went the opposite direction. I get he's got some tough competition ahead of him but is it just that? Carrying an injury? Not doing it in training?
The gaffer will have his reasons obviously, I'm just not sure what they are.
Great point Watty. I forgot he never got a break in betweenThe Swiss actually finished their league season therefore Cedric was playing until 3rd August. He signed for us on the 4th and came off the bench for his debut on the 9th.
He'll still be adapting to the league and given he's not had a pre-season similar to his team mates i think it's fair to give him a bit of time to settle in. We're sorting goals from all over the park so it's not as though he's been expected to come in and hit the ground running.
