Impressed with him, hes improved massively. Even wins a few free kicks now aswell! Solid championship striker , Id be happy if we replaced Gestede with him in the summer but he seems settled at Brum.

Didnt celebrate when he scored also .. seems a lifetime ago he was leading the line we couldnt even remember who we'd signed him from! (Everton)

Aye I noticed he never celebrated , FairPlay to him. He got a decent reception before the game. Interesting to see if we are interested in him come the summer.

Decent player now but glad we got rid when we did, he was nowhere the player he is now and it took him a while to get there.

I agree parnabys but would also say would be good to get him back.

Sat next to him on a train from Boro to York once he was sat opposite me just after he signed for us, what a really nice bloke he was, could barely contain his excitement about playing for Boro when we spoke, hope he does come back [^]

He's not what we would want.
Just because he's far better than Gestede, is a really nice bloke (agreed) and is a former player who has improved, is not enough to sign him.
Good luck to him all the same.

No but the fact he scored 14 goals and got 10 assists last season and has scored 10 already this season is enough for us to want him. A host of clubs in this league would take him as a different option.

He does the 'Rudy' roll far better and cost a fraction of the price (also wages).

He did ok for us. He was younger then and just come from Coventry. He uses his physicality well and is a decent champo target man.

He spotted a player who was doing well at Coventry and turned him into a cart horse.

He had to leave here to get his career back on track.

Don't think Mowbray can take too much glory from the juke signing

We do seem to have a record of buying top strikers and then they have a goal drought. Ronald would probably struggle if he came here.

I agree with OP, and was also very impressed with the intelligent way that he led their front line last night.

I always liked him, too, and am glad he's been able to make a decent career out of the game. He also looks an awful lot bigger and stronger than he did during his time with us. This said, my main gripe with him was if you shepherded him out to the right, he was rendered useless. He still doesn't look as if he's able to kick with his right foot but, like I said, all the very best to him[^]

He's a perfectly decent championship striker, came across as a decent bloke during his time here.

Looks to have put some muscle on in the last few years which does make a difference with his style of play.

That said, I think this is his level, and he's not someone is look to bring in to move us forward.

Mowbray got alot wrong too in his recruitment. He bought Faris Haroon as a winger. He he doesnt seem to recognise a good goalkeeper either. Only by chance kontatoplous came good.

However minimal the long term impact of the likes of Haroun, Ledesma and Carayol was, I'd argue that they were improvements on what we had at the time and cost relatively little. I see them as minor successes.

Juke was a different matter, he cost quite big money at the time and didn't really deliver on it.

I think Alex Ferguson said that if you get 7 out of 10 signings right, you're doing really well. I expect all managers and recruitment teams to sign flops from time to time.

Awful the first time he was here is this how far we have fallen as a club. [sad]

He was always really skinny when he was with us but he's an absolute tank now
