Chris Martin : Confirmed as signed


Recommended Posts

Most importantly he should be excellent foil for Wells. I feel like Diedhiou and Wells haven’t really clicked as a pairing yet but I think Wells will thrive with someone like Martin. 

We’ve got a nice blend of forwards now - perhaps we could do with someone pacey and athletic to come off the bench but maybe that’s where Semenyo comes in.

Surely he’ll be off on loan again. Nowhere near the level required for us presently.

I can’t see Semenyo getting a look in to be honest. The forward options that are ahead of him...

Wells

Fam

Weimann

Martin

Palmer

Szmodics

Pato

Being more of a link forward than a striker that plays on the shoulder, I think he is more of a threat to Palmer’s place in the team than Fam’s. Him playing that link role could hopefully bring out the best in ‘runners’; O’Dowda, Wiemann and Wells.

I don’t think that’s quite the case - he isn’t that mobile and that role requires it. He would be direct competition or a replacement for Diedhiou.

In my opinion he has similar traits shared by the likes of Jon Stead/Dele Adebola/Wilbraham - essentially a hold up player but also someone who brings others into play. On paper the perfect partner for someone like Wells.

At 20 years old Antoine needs regular football to develop.  He won't be getting that here, so needs another season on loan I guess anyway.

Definitely. Unless he is so good in training he gets a real go. Which I can only see happening if Fam is sold. Even then I doubt he will play enough.

40 odd games. We have seen what it has done for other players. Some of them look like different players now after the experience of consistent competitive game time.

When was the last time you or any of us saw him play? We have no idea how he has reacted to the new coaching regime. He looks physically more capable than some of his contemporaries, so he is a step head in some ways.

It's possible, but what I am saying is you are basing your opinion on old information. Unless you are watching the training sessions or are one of the team of 3 who see him day in day out.
