Premiership quality?


I think he is a natural finisher and i think he could cut it at a side like Bolton, Wigan or Swansea. He is a very good striker and is pretty fast and can head well. What do you think?

Not good enough for prem, but can't fault his work rate

Wouldn't want him near our team massively over-rated.

Seen him a few times now for Scotland, hasn't overly impressed me nor was he really poor. He'd be average in the Premiership I think scoring the odd goal.

Something that we will only know if someone gives him a chance in prem. Prem is a hard league, jusrt ask our own Danny Graham. Quality in champs but lack that quality to be top player. Great for us though and we love him.

@maresh 9 goals in 39 games in the League this season. He's 28 too, not going to get any better.

I'd rather have Ade Akinbiyi.

From what i've seen of him (which is limited i must admit) he may well be. he reminds me of someone like dirk kuyt or tevez, great work rate and will put a shift in on the wings if needed. but lacks quality, he's the kind of player who would play week in week out for a team near the bottom of the league simply because of his work rate. someone who scores tons of goals in lower leagues but in prem is a work horse player, like a conor sammon

He's looked alright for Scotland, no better than Kenny Miller though and he never really set the Premier League alight. A very capable Championship player however.

Wouldn't say so, he hasn't really impressed in the Championship for me. Something like 9 goals this season in the league? Pretty poor for a guy in his prime years, he won't develop anymore so he's at his best just now.
