CHO

With shots of him back training with the first team a return to the side can't be too far away, this weekend is probably abit soon but a place on the bench surely can't be too far away. To be fair to Pedro he has been playing well other than the first game at United but CHO back is a huge boost, how he'll cope with having to press like lampard wants I'm not sure but his goal threat will be a much needed addition. I think it will be between him and Mount for our top scored this season baring injuries.

CHO, Tammy, and to a lesser extend Mount all need a couple of goals... quickly. I thought no with a much needed injection of confidence they will soar. If they do not get the goals soon (2-3 games) insecurity will sink in.

Thought pedro was better against utd than he was against leicester. utd he gave away the ball alot but his pressing and driving forward was good, atleast in first half. Leicester he looked tired

Can't fault Pedro's attitude and work rate.

Him and Azpi just don't do enough for me on the right hand side. Pedro likes going on the inside and rarely takes on the opposition fullback. Azpi has his problems going forward as well highlighted.

CHO will add something different - pace, ability to take on a man & crossing as we seem to get more numbers in the box of late.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I've never thought of him as being that blessed with pace. He's not slow but I haven't previously considered him a whippet either.

What is is very good at, in my opinion, is stealing a yard from a defender and making himself room to whip a good cross in.

I think that Tammy might thrive when Cho is back in the side and making those penetrating runs down the flanks with good delivery into the box. Not only will be make space for Tammy by dragging defenders away from him but he'll help give Tammy the quality of delivery he hasn't received so far.

the same people criticising my OPINION seem to be them that not so long ago wrote off michy after not so many more games but comparing an international player from a recognized European team to one who has only so far shown it at div 1 level.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
vava not really sure what your comment means tbh, who wrote off michy? And the reason your OPINION is being questioned is because the sample size to judge him is too small. He was inches away from a goal against utd and has far from flopped in his appearances so far.

I do understand skepticism where Abraham's concerned. Where players like Mount, CHO, RLC, etc... are concerned, all are on upward trajectories. Abraham's going to be judged a bit harsher because there's a fair perception that he might just be a Championship striker, he left no impression in the PL at Swansea.

Of all of our youngsters this year the transfer ban might wind up hurting Abraham rather than benefiting him. He'd have been an ideal 2nd/3rd choice to slowly blood through with sub appearances, and unlike others he probably would've got that opportunity without the ban in effect.

Tbf devil he can still be 2nd or 3rd but depends how much faith frank has in any of our strikers!

Very good point, but I also think it’s an unfair view of him, or at least fans should take into consideration context for his Swansea loan. He was still their top scorer, and it was an awful team who struggled for goals all round. Giroud, for instance, would do no better at Swansea that season.

Giroud will be your top scorer.

That's a truly worrying scenario
