Nottingham Forest

2-1: Saturday, 21st January

(replaced Cole 85) No time to impact the game. Not sure if he even touched the ball.

Derby County

1-2: Saturday, 31st December

Poor. His layoff for the goal and a run that came when he saw the fourth official playing with the numbers board were his only contribution to the game.

Burnley

1-2: Saturday, 3rd December

(Replaced Taylor, 56) Actually looked pretty lively for a change. Should have perhaps done better with one or two of the chances that came his way.

Derby County

3-1: Saturday, 26th November

(Replaced Baldock, 21) His best game for a fair while, only a spot of composure and, occasionally, luck in front of goal stopped him from troubling the scorers.

Coventry City

2-1: Saturday, 19th November

(Replaced Diop, 62) The old football cliché has it that when a player has gone so long without a goal all it takes is for a fluke to set the bandwagon rolling again. Hope so.

Hull City

2-0: Saturday, 5th November

(replaced Baldock, 87) His introduction for Baldock was made with one eye on the clock I presume.

Blackpool

4-0: Saturday, 15th October

Did not play.

Portsmouth

4-3: Saturday, 10th September

(Replaced Cole, 85) A couple of good touches but was desperately unlucky to see red after Halford’s antics.

Nottingham Forest

4-1: Sunday, 28th August

(Replaced Cole, 68) Yet to see him do anything this season. Little to note from his brief cameo today: a waste of space so far.

Aldershot Town

1-2: Wednesday, 24th August

A complete waste of space. It's hard to recall one promising pass or tackle he made all night.

Leeds United

2-2: Sunday, 21st August

(Replaced Noble, 82 mins) I couldn’t work out where he was supposed to be playing.

Watford

4-0: Tuesday, 16th August

(Replaced Cole, 74 mins) Carried on where Cole left off. Some neat turns, touches and movement which, like with Cole, will go unappreciated by some.

Doncaster Rovers

1-0: Saturday, 13th August

A few good touches but not nearly as influential as in the first match.

Doncaster Rovers

1-0: Saturday, 13th August

Disinterested at times and if you believe the Sunday rags, about to be sold having failed to impress Sam Allardyce.

Cardiff City

0-1: Sunday, 7th August

Looked interested in spells, bored in others.

Sunderland

0-3: Sunday, 22nd May

Won a lot in the air and made some good runs but never quite seemed on the same wavelength as his strike partner.

Blackburn Rovers

1-1: Saturday, 7th May

(Replaced Jacobsen, 64 mins) Looked lively and made you wish he’d been on for longer.

Chelsea

0-3: Saturday, 23rd April

(Replaced Cole, 79 mins) Little effect.

Manchester City

1-2: Saturday, 23rd April

Did not play.

Aston Villa

1-2: Saturday, 16th April

Did not play.

Bolton Wanderers

0-3: Saturday, 9th April

Justifiably withdrawn at half time. The injury has impaired his quality.

Manchester United

2-4: Saturday, 2nd April

Stoke City

1-2: Sunday, 13th March

Sadly injured upon scoring our only goal of the game. Had given a good account of himself up until that point.

Stoke City

3-0: Saturday, 5th March

Pushes out wide when we go with three up – a position I suspect is not one that he enjoys quite as much as his usual role. However, he gave Pugh a rotten time throughout. Should have scored though.

Liverpool

3-1: Sunday, 27th February

Like O’Neil his performance was of the off the ball variety, especially second half when he played a more withdrawn role.

West Bromwich Albion

3-3: Saturday, 12th February

(Replaced Boa Morte, 57 mins) His first touch was to set up Cole's goal. A constant threat to Albion for the time he was on the pitch, only let down by his erratic aiming.

Birmingham City

0-1: Sunday, 6th February

Won a couple of headers but showed little threat.

Blackpool

3-1: Wednesday, 2nd February

His knockdown led to the crucial second but once again it was at defensive set-pieces that he provided his most important contributions. Excluding Adams' goal that he made a complete hash of, naturally.

Nottingham Forest

3-2: Sunday, 30th January

But for both 'keepers he could have had his name on both sides of the goals ledger. Otherwise promised little and delivered it.

Everton

2-2: Saturday, 22nd January

Barnsley

2-0: Saturday, 8th January

(Replaced Nouble, 83 mins) On for a mere eight minutes plus stoppage time. Fine goal though.

Newcastle United

Wolverhampton Wanderers

2-0: Saturday, 1st January

Sometimes it looked as if he and Cole had been playing together for a lifetime. Often it didn't. Some good link-up play but only once did he look like scoring.

Wigan Athletic

3-1: Saturday, 27th November

Ought to have scored in the second half but thatmiss shouldn't detract from his overall contribution which, once he'd stopped getting caught offside, was actually quite good.

Liverpool

0-3: Saturday, 20th November

Blackpool

0-0: Saturday, 13th November

Not his greatest game. Got into some good positions but his touch was lacking.

Arsenal

0-1: Saturday, 30th October

Was on a bit of a hiding to nothing really – particularly in the second half.

Newcastle United

1-2: Saturday, 23rd October

Failed to make much of an impression and hobbled off in the second half.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

1-1: Saturday, 16th October

Mostly useless: ran into blind alleys (including colliding with Dyer) and failed to hold up the ball. 'Scored' when pushed out wide after Cole came on.

Fulham

1-1: Saturday, 2nd October

Good runout, good goal – at last we have a decent threat from corners.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Sunday, 26th September

I like the look of the Piquionne/Obinna partnership. He was one of the few players to impress in a wretched season at Fratton Park last year and his form has carried over to this term. If only he were a few years younger!

Sunderland

2-1: Tuesday, 21st September

Slow and has a tendency to skulk about looking disinterested - but you can't argue with the goal. Brilliantly taken.

Stoke City

1-1: Saturday, 18th September

Not a winger. Very similar player to Cole, looks ok and a very good back-up - just a shame neither of them look like scoring more than 5-10 goals this season. Still, this lad is a decent signing and we would definitely have a weaker squad without him - bit I would definitely play one or the other between him and Cole.

Chelsea

1-3: Saturday, 11th September

(Replaced Behrami, 72 mins) Aargh – that miss!

Manchester United

0-3: Saturday, 28th August

(Replaced Dyer, 75 mins) An ambitious find. Should start next week.

Oxford United

1-0: Tuesday, 24th August

Had two or three chances he should have scored. Looks like he could be good after a goal or two gives him some confidence.

Bolton Wanderers

1-3: Saturday, 21st August

Another good start. Played just behind Cole and made some impressive contributions to the approach play.

Aston Villa

0-3: Saturday, 14th August

(Replaced Kovac, 46 mins) Looked lively although failed to influence matters to any extent.

Deportivo La Coruna

0-0: Saturday, 7th August
