For me he is impressing now. People need to look past the price, its fairly irrelevant now to be honest. I think what moyes was getting at in his above quote was that if he is playing well now, imagine how well he could be playing in a few more years when he has started to hit his peak.
He is 'slowly' improving but still got a long way to go.
Moyes sums it up well,
"He is playing OK" ....
"He was shattered afterwards, the speed of the game in midfield, box to box, is something he may not have experienced. You will always make mistakes at 20, but I will be interested to see what he will be like at 23, 24."
Now to me, 3 or 4 years is a long time in football. Let's hope he improves quicker than this.
I can't see how people can still be criticiaing him.Second game in a row where he has been a very strong contender, if not the actuall, man of the match. People need to forget there grievences with him and with his fee and look at the prospect we have in our team.
