I've never seen any youngster come into the first team and have an immediate impact like him. Jones was close and Dunn took time. Duff was immense. He never looked fazed playing on either wing, even played off the top too at times when we had injuries and did a good job. The lad was fearless and scared the fuck out of full backs. He always took them on. For years I've been screaming at our wingers to take them on.
The team we had with Duff, Dunn, Tugay, Jansen & Cole was just awesome. It's a pity that Duff got injured a bit too often and Jansen had that accident in Rome. He would've been a star if not for that. He was never the same after that. Such a shame.
I can't see him making at Ewood. The last thing we need is another striker. Rochina & Rhodes aren't being dropped anytime soon. Berg's set the whole team up around them since he's come in. Plus there's Nuno Gomes & Goodwillie, then Kazim-Richards on loan too. The last three might not be there next season but I don't see why he's brought King in now. He's done sod all on other loan spells at Championship level. I saw him at North End a couple of times and he looked like a little boy lost, but that was a couple of years ago.
We need a centre back, left back and a central midfielder, winger desperately. The last position we needed cover other than a keeper is up front.
