Round Five - Shez Sez
1) “He’s a talker and an organiser. He’s the only one I do hear talking. We need three or four of them on the pitch.”

3) “You could see his natural finishing in the first goal. It’s probably only him that would have scored that. He’s anticipated where the ball might go and that’s why he’s got his goal. It’s a great finish.”
4) “The first goal was a wonder goal, wasn’t it? But I know he can do that. I hope he can score a few goals for us this season, because I know he’s got it in his locker.
“I’ve never seen him score a goal like that, though. I don’t think I’ve seen many players score one like the first one since I’ve been in football.”

6) “He’s attack-minded – I wouldn’t have him sitting and holding – and he’ll get in areas and be clever in and around the penalty-box. He’d push on and get forward. He can pass the ball a lot better than he thinks he can and takes care of it – he’s got a great touch.”

8) “I’ve stood by him and played him in nearly every game, and he’s getting his rewards for his hard work.”

10) “I think he can play anywhere. He can play left, right or down the middle.
“He can not be in a game, but just show him that little glimpse and he can do something out of the ordinary. They are the players you need when the game is not going your way.”
