Spot on

He's done that before.  Then he just doesn't show up for 3 games.  I fear he is one of those players with all the talent but not the consistent effort to make the most of it. 

Really hope I'm wrong.

Maybe before, I mean with Winston in charge, personally I think he looks a different player, only time will tell.

Great performance from KP yes but one swallow doesn’t make a summer.

Still obviously needs to get fit and play higher up the pitch. He really does come alive in the final third though.

My whole point is that this was last chance saloon for Kasey and he came good. 

Alternatively we could just say he didn't get a hat trick or maybe he's just found his level at League One. Just like we did for Bryan and Reid.

He was playing against a second-rate team who barely got out of third gear.

 

Second-rate team who beat Cardiff!!!.... you can only beat who is playing in-front of you, Kasey is a player that will always blow hot and cold, he is our only player that can play like this!!!!

Just grew in confidence as the game went on. It’s hard for any player to effect games when coming on as a sub. 

I mentioned on here last year it would be interesting to see if Palmer could be converted into more of a centre midfielder like West Brom have done with Sawyers.

KP’s performance should come as no surprise to those who believe in him. He’s got class in him and is clearly a confidence player, the sort who needs an arm round him rather than being thrown under the bus time and again. 

I really hope this is the turning point for him because there is a top player in there. He’s earned his next chance and needs to string a run of games together against sides better than Northampton with all due respect. 

He’s miles ahead of Weimann in that role and a better long-term prospect than Pato. If KP performs consistently at tonight’s level, it’s a no brainer he’s ahead of those two. Good on him.

He did play well but he will need to produce when it actually matters. He will have given DH a really good problem to have for sure. It’s about what KP does from this point now though.

I am not sure who said that about Bryan or Reid but either way, completely different situations.

It's true that but when was the last time Palmer got a start in midfield with some forwards in front of him who actually move and a defence not lumping the ball at Fam?

For me it's like when we signed Lee Trundle and then expected him to be a target man and lamented that he wasn't.

I don't think we've ever really given him the chance to succeed at what he's best at - I hope we do now because he can be great to watch.

Playing him behind Wells with Morrell, Walsh and Williams behind him would suit KP down to the ground, IMO.

Of course Palmer played well.  But I happen to think O'Leary was our MOTM.  Clean sheet, hardly a shot to save with great positioning, good distribution...should definitely start on Sunday...

You get my point?

No doubt Palmer will not start at Stoke, probably no space on the bench for him.

But his silky skills should be enjoyed, against a lower league side tonight he looked great and there can be no doubt he has talent

Can he do it week in week out ? Hope he gets the chance but he's in a bit of a log jam now. IF we ever get all our midfielders fit picking a side will be a nightmare.

Has he though? I don’t think I’ve seen the tracking back, the tackling and, most of all, the full 90 min stamina that we saw tonight.

I think, tbf, that in recent times KP hasn't been given enough chances " to produce when it actually matters". Yet you're right in that his signing has been a general disappointment so far but definitely DH has a new dilemma.

Ultimately- KP putting on a show is brilliant for BCFC one way or another.

Was amazing to see him chasing lost causes, winning possession back after chasing down the ball when he lost it.

However I did feel he overcomplicated things quite often; choosing to go for a highlight reel pass, or trying to take a man on and failing a significant number of times. Also kept doing "no-look" passes.

I found him quite frustrating to watch to be honest, but he did definitely give us attacking impetus and 2 nice finishes, maybe he's what we need?

Holden has a headache now, first choice no.10 still pato? But kp just scored twice? Where does that leave Walsh? Nice problem to have though.

Well yes, I think I already agreed with that?  It doesn't mean that giving him 20 minute cameos when we're losing and punting the ball over his head to static forwards is not the reason we haven't got the best out of him.  Perhaps we should try using him properly before we give up.

I will say though that Palmer looked ridiculously good against Bolton at home in the cup in 18/19. And then barely had a good game after that.

He was fantastic tonight of course. Just wondering can he do it consistently. I hope so.

To be able to do it consistently he needs to play consistently. Hopefully this will be the turning point for him and will be managed differently. It does seem he has been the scapegoat. Not playing him could have cost us a play off place last season.
