Recommended Posts

Semenyo linked with a move to Sunderland, we've been asked what our view is on the Sunderland forum. If you could give me your views on him I'd be very grateul, I will post them as a reply to their query.

Everything I saw of him at Newport was brilliant. Looked like he was worth every penny of the 2m Chelsea reportedly bid for him in the summer. 
 

However since then looks like he’s playing cos he’s won a competition. 
 

I hope Sunderland get the former, because they’d better enjoy playing with 10 if they get the latter.

I would be OK with it. His usage thus far hasn't helped but from what I've seen he doesn't have the muscle or the motivation to fight in this division. 

With that said Rodri will be there next week instead.

Without being snide, in the Mackam's seemingly inexorable desire to hit rock bottom he'd be akin petrol on flames.

We really need to be getting him out on loan, undoubted potential but he is not getting minutes here any more. If LJ is not going to bring him on against Luton when 3 up he just isn't going to get any game time.

Yes, could not understand why LJ gave more game time to Rodri instead of Semenyo, given we were 3 up.

One could guess that he has a loan move lined up, and doesn't want to risk him getting an injury?

Could definitely be the case, hope so too. Would definitely make sense.

Yeah, he need to go out. But to Sunderland? They'll have higher expectations than we did at that level. Unless he hits the ground running there he might struggle with the pressure.

Semenyo simply not good enough for championship yet, his reading of the game is poor so often funded him self out of position with the game passing him by, he tends to get frustrated and start running after the ball all over the place meaning his not in the box enough, has found that streetwise defender are hard for him to beat, maybe better playing him on the wing where his pace could make a difference at the lower level,

He is a winger at this moment imo.

Surprisingly though he looked far better up top on his own briefly second half at home to Charton before being subbed.

He didn't seem so confused with where he had to run when on his own and looked decent imo. But in a 2 with Weimann he didn't look so comfortable. Still a lot to learn.

Needs to go out on loan if he's not gonna get a look in at all here.

I guess this must've been lined up for a while as there's no other reason he shouldn't have got to play the final 20 mins today.

So why even have him on the bench? Was annoying to see Rodri come on over Semenyo.

No, could have Bakinson on the bench instead and presumably will have to if Semenyo off on loan, unless recalling Jannah.

Or Morrell is coming back. Though that would presumably mean a midfielder is going.

Don't think Bakinson counts under the ruling as we bought him from Luton. I think that is the case.

Bakinson is rumoured to be off to Plymouth Argyle on loan anyway.  Saw a tweet earlier of him pictured with a fan at their game, can't find it anymore though!

I don't understand why Semenyo didn't get a run today, as interested as I was to see Rodri, as he'll be leaving soon why not give the lad 20 minutes.

I like him, to a degree. But if he's the answer, then we're asking the wrong questions.
