|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
All this talk of Joe Cole and the transfer window has over shadowed the return of Jack Collison. Two 90 minutes on the trot, it's great to see him back playing again!
Yep has looked very good and I always forget how mature and composed he is when playing. If he keeps growing the way he has when he´s been injury free he´ll be one hell of a player in a few years time.
Really hope our physio team can keep his knee under control from now on.
Jack has been superb in the middle against both Norwich and Man U. Fully deserving of a starting place against Sunderland IMO. Knocks it about nicely, works hard, has an ability to ghost into good positions in and around the box and can finish, hopefully we can start seeing some more of the latter soon.
I can second that. I thought he was finished too. Good to see him back playing 90 and quite frankly looking the part!
Why does every player have to be compared to a team mate? (Is this a playstation Fifa feature?)
They all have strengths and weaknesses and as long as they are contributing all they can to our winning team I couldn't give a flying one about who looks pedestrian.
Such a better corner taker aswell compared to noble...
He not only beat the first man with his first.. he found diarra.
His corners are constantly dangerous. One of my favourite players, always looks good going forward, makes intelligent runs and passes and can score a goal like we saw last season. Hope his injury problems are behind him for good.
Fantastic to see him back, two very good displays from him, he's doing his dad proud. What has happened to Jack would break many players but this boy is showing us all what he's made of
Indeed. He's done very well imo
I was half expecting him to be a shadow of his former self. Maybe a bit tentative, maybe looking like he was lacking fitness, perhaps lacking in confidence
But no, he's been excellent from the word go, and has shown plenty of glimpses of the excellent player he is. He's actually improved us since his return, so hopefully with a few more games under his belt, he can put his injury worries behind him and become a regular and key player for us. I do feel we are a stronger side with him in it
We have enough options now to ease him in a bit gradually, so he can build up his stamina and match fitness, and surely he'll only get better with a run of games behind him.
Onwards and upwards young Jack
Glad he's back. He needs a touch more sharpness on putting those follow-up blasts away and not in to row J. But that will come soon enough if he keeps getting match time and training. Considering the time he's missed and the severity of his injuries, I'm very, very pleased for him.
You're gonna hate me- but am i the only one that thinks that Jack Collison is over-rated? He did nothing to mark Cleverley for Man U's first goal on Saturday- appeared statuesque to me, and when he shoots ( al ot when he would be better playing a ball into the box/ or a one-two) - 9 times out of 10 the ball goes over the bar. Sometimes he has a reasonable game- but often seems sloth-like. Can't fault his desire to play for West Ham- but sorry i do not rate him as a quality player.
