Was impressed by him in the Dundee game and again today.

 

Fantastic cameo from him today. Think we have a striker on our hands. Much more to come from him.

That goal today was exactly the kind of goals he's been scoring, albeit at a lower level. He's a goalscorer for sure.

Loved his goal.  Showed a lot of hunger and desire to dig it out.  We’ve missed that up front, too many players trying to score the perfect goal.

Absolutely delighted for him bagging his first for the club. Hopefully first of many in the maroon. A great wee cameo from the young lad. Hope Levein gives him plenty more chances going forward

Showed what he can do. Can play across the attacking half linking up but very direct too. 

 

Good if he can get a chance.

Got really high hopes for him. Went out on loan twice and shown he can score goals at league 1 and championship level (he scored some crackers for both QP and Dunfermline). At only 19 I think he could be superb as he gets older. Which is just as well as vanecek still looks a huddy.

He could really kick on if he keeps working hard. Obviously has talent.

Guy was raving about him as a player and saying has potential to be top notch. The guys knows his stuff and gave a detailed analysis of his play. 

 

Very hopeful for him.

Did well coming on when we had effectively shut up shop and good movement for his goal.

 

Although I didn’t think i he did too much more than Vanacek but one scored and the other didn’t. One gets slagged by fans and the other praised... small margins I guess.

Scoring and not scoring quite a big margin I’d argue...

Indeed, they came on at about the same time and have similar build and style, I was paying particular attention to Vanacek as I have'nt seen much of him. A couple of times I thought that Vanacek was doing some good stuff until I realised that it was actually Keena!

Mobile, good touch, linked with other players very well and scored a good goal. We might have a good one here.

I’d agree in a sense. But for me I don’t think the criticism for Vanacek is merited. However I’m all for the praise of Kenna and happy that we have a kid coming through who looks like he’ll be really good in front of goal.

Congratulations to Aidan on his debut goal for us! He looked a bit overawed against Dundee but it was great to see him pull it together today.

How I saw it.

 

Thought vanacek had a few good touches (back heel to Mitchell on the wing)

 

But looked a bit slow. Still hoping he'll get up to speed as there's obviously a goalscorer in there. Czech league is a decent standard .

There is a fight for the places up front. So glad the lad scored.

Debut 4

Obviously very early days but the lad looks like he’s got that natural instinct and ability when he’s around or in the area.

 

Would love to see a player in this mould grab their chance , claim the jersey and not let go. 

 

Don’t want to see another Gary Glen where early promise fades away without a fight.

Looks like a great prospect, proper striker who just wants to get the ball out his feet and shoot. Hope to see a lot more of him this season.

For such a scrappy goal, he took it amazingly well. Seems to be able to keep the ball at his feet and stay calm when he's among the traffic in the box. A lot of players would go to ground claiming they were tripped in that wee second where it looked like he may lose the ball, but he stayed focused, got his foot back on it and finished the job.

Said similar on a thread a few weeks back. Dunfy guy at work (‘guy’ doesn’t do this guy justice, he lives and breathes Dunfermline fc - strange guy 😂) said they’d have loved to have kept him but realised from watching, they had no chance. 

 

Though in the interest of honesty, he added hed keep Martin too. As a useful sub.   

 

However on this thread dedicated to Keena, I’d like to be the first to say get rid, pish, why’d we no sign Osman Sow? **** sake Levein.... when he doesn’t score in his next cameo. 

 

Heard it here first.

It won't be a cameo... He'll be starting in a front two and flicking in first timers from Uche's hold-up play.

He done a lot more than Vanecek for me. Was more mobile, dropped deep to collect the ball and either layed it off and made runs or was direct running with the ball. And he was also back in our box defending at one point.

Happy for him but not getting carried away. He has basically scored in a training exercise. Would be nice if we could put teams away earlier to allow him game time.

That's what I thought. Not seen a lot of him but previously thought he was still a bit lightweight. Certainly not yesterday

Goal apart,  how was he?  What kind of player do we have on our hands? Does he like to play off the last defender or come deep etc. 

 

Expert opinions welcome :)

Hard to judge after yesterday but seems that he was doing a bit of both. Although he was playing deeper due to us being down to 10 men after Smith went off injured. Link up play was good in his cameo and seems like a natural goal scorer as he has scored goals for Queens Park, Dunfermline along with our reserves.
