Szmodic scores for Posh

Recommended Posts

According to Sky "a clinical cool finish". Is that because he is playing at a lower standard or because the Manager has belief in him and he is getting selected. Either way we could do with some finishing like that.

Szmodics looks a championship player.

With a hashtag like that no wonder the short short one has been short on giving him a chance

If he does amazing on loan at Peterborough then I guess he might be worth a bit in the summer.

I doubt he was just bought to make a profit, but I bet we will make a profit from him if we do sell.

Wouldn't that make it a decent signing overall?

Was it his debut today? Great for his confidence if it was.

No - fairly sure he started the game in midweek.

Home debut I presume.

If that's what were signing players for just making a few bob then yes.

It was a good run and good ball to him, but he had half an hour to pick his spot as the keeper just stayed pretty much glued to his line.

So I am guessing Ferguson must rate their striker Dembele higher than Eisa? 

Eisa been dropped last two games and their results have since improved.

Well, of course we can apply the "posh logic" back at them with Sammy is such a naturally gifted player who's not leaving yet but with all of the interest in him is a £10M player in the making.

Hes in the right place. I'm delighted hes scored. Hopefully he can continue that progression until he becomes a Championship player.

Yeh, makes you wonder how all those Sheff Utd players who played in that division managed to get by in the Championship!!

Not 'just' to make a profit, but that is our plan. Buy young players , that could make it, but also have a sell on value.
Of course , it helps if they get games to see if they are good enough. We were lucky to get (most of ) our money back for Eisa. In theory it can work, but you can't buy so many they don't get the chance to improve/look good to get teams to buy them.

Doesn't say much for our team then does it. We played a league 1 team twice and couldn't score.

I've watched him a few times for the U23's & he can definitely pick a finish..

It's "off the ball" he struggles and seems to drift...plus 'physicality'..

Great coach who trusts his players, and picks a settled side, players giving their all week in week out , we could learn alot from them

He didn't really do a lot when he played. Very rarely touched the ball. But the little bits we saw he showed glimpses.

Would not be surprised if he is involved next season. If we ever want to go back to high pressing then he fits right in with his work rate along with Weimann.

naively I thought they were bought to enhance the team and play some part, silly me.

Glad he's scoring there. He might eventually be good enough for the Championship. He isn't yet.

See him every day in training do you?

Very few of us get to see the training ground- but we all get to see the news of exciting new signings AND how well some of them do once they leave, most of us never seeing how good they may have been - One recent leaver was joint top scorer in his league this season after the Johnsons exchanged 1.5 mill to get him to the gate very recently!

I'm glad LJ doesn't think 'well Mo Eisa looks poor in training, he's clearly not good enough. But I need to show the fans he isn't good enough so let's give him 5 or 6 games which might mean we lose a few, but at least the fans will then be ok with me selling him.'

Mo Eisa can't even get in the Peterborough team now. He is behind Toney and Dembele.

It’s bad isn’t it... Peterborough have a better selection of strikers than we do!

He started for them four times this month, the last time 8 days ago.

He's scored 15 goals. He's hardly out of favour.

He has been dropped last 2 games.

It goes to show goals are not everything for a striker. 

It sounds like Eisa either scores or contributes very little. 

Lazy and lightweight. Some even call him 'Mo effort'. 

There is absolutely no way a striker who doesn't seem to put in the effort at league one level would work in a LJ side.

I keep saying about him because so many keep on saying we should not have sold him when they're just guessing whether he is good or not.

I've even seen comments from our fans saying Ivan Toney can't be much better than Eisa if he's scored similar amounts of goals!

I seen the goal now, it was really well taken he clearly looks to have an eye for goal, I see in this thread his position play was poor in the under 23 side so he didn't make the first team but with finishing like that maybe an argument for just telling him to say in the box and shoot at goal when ever he can, I sometimes think Lee wants his strikers to do to much see them all over the place more like midfielders and not in the box where we need them,
