Absolutely honking today. A competent manager may get something out of him, though. 

Could well be the manager IMO.

Are the old firm still scouting him😂😂

was  a cult hero until his injury last season now all of a sudden we are mocking the same players. Going by the 2 results so far...our squad that looks great on paper, half the players are not good enough according to a large % on here.  Is it that or more to do with my 1st point about the manager?

The last couple of games it hasn't happened for him.

Mainly because of endless hoofed balls up to him (same as when we used to play concalves up on his own) it doesn't work.

Even when it does  from 1 in 10 nothing really comes of it as we certainly have not been winning 2nd balls either.

Don't think lafferty was much better either.

Need more passing attacking football we are lacking any creativity and strikers like washington henderson are not Callum Patterson either ;)

He just wants to wrestle with every defender in the league. He plays the man and never the ball. 

The hilarious moment in the second half when the ball was punted up to him and for once no one was behind him, he almost fell over in anticipation of the non existent challenge. Getting sick of him now.

Cult status? Carthorse more like it. A good combination of desperate dan and clicky ba. (apologies to DC Thompson)

Another poor show from him. He has bulked up at the expense of pace.

Whilst the service to him isn’t the best ( understatement ) on the rare occasion when it is , all it shows is he’s really not that good .

The refs haven't a clue how to handle him.    Today's ref was Shyte overall.

I actually agree, there was a point even towards the end of last season that some folk on here expected bids from an EPL team for the big man. How things change on this forum. Let's change the manager and see how the new one gets on with this squad. I think our squad is a decent one tbh, just lacks direction and tactics.

Mixed bag from him today. I was watching RC manager today telling his players to double up on him. I also saw him half nelsoned to the ground just before halftime. Ref had a good view and gave nothing. My advise to him would be stay on your feet and don’t back in as much as you are doing as the refs are giving  you nothing when you are fouled in the process.

Some of the service he got today bordered on criminal. That and the lack of protection from the referee. Shocking on both counts.

I can only really recall him playing well with Maclean next to him. 

 

Maybe he'd be better alongside Washington or Naismith if they had possession further up the pitch but we refuse to do anything other than hoof it.

Cant qusetion the mans work rate but i hope to never see him start a game for Hearts again. Maybe bring him on if we're trailing with 10 mins left to bulldoze an already tired defence. But thats it.

Very true - his first touch isn't great, he lacks vision and he isn't a prolific goalscorer. Tries hard but at this level that isn't enough

But, but, the ref had no influence on the game!!!

 

If you're playing badly and the ref gives you nothing that obviously has no influence on the performance, at all, never - or so say some of the collected Kickback genius.

Agreed.  He'll struggle to get back into the first 11 once Naisy is back.

A wee bit like Zamal; seems like a nice guy that tries his best and works hard for the club but I can’t help thinking we perform better without him.

I suspect that while others will kick on and rise to the challenge, the quality of the signings we are now making will leave big Uche behind.

Would love to be proved wrong.

Doesnt have the basic skills to play a fast passing game. Takes to long to try to control the ball and all momentum stops. Great to see him battling defenders but that does nothing except slow the game down.

He's shown glimmers of hope, lay off for Jamie's goal against the 🐑 to suggest he is a good "on the deck player". He's not a Sandy Clark in the air so we shouldn't play long to him. Ive not written him off just yet but his game time will be reduced for now.

Not a fan of this need to slag other players when we think someone better comes along.

 

Uche will play his part this season as will Berra.

yes I'm with you on this. There will be times this season where he will be very useful. Having options now to play the right players against the respective opposition is a bonus.

Not his fault but we play better without him in the team because there's no easy out ball e.g. aimless hoof up the park.

I think he'll start at parkhead tbh. Id rest Washington as he'd be my first choice. Chances if getting anything are parkhead are slim, I genuinely believe if Uche is suited to a more open game rather that a tight game on a tight pitch. We finally have a bit strength (literally) and depth in the forward areas now. And whoever between Uche and Washington is in form should start. For me Washington is our main striker.

I get what you mean but a little over the top. We played the ball on the deck a lot more today and this encouraged movement.

 

Unfortunately for Uche he’s started poorly but also the team seem to get lazy when he plays by just lumping the ball up to him.

 

He will have his use this season but feel he’s rightly not in the team just now.

I feel sorry for uche. When he plays, the rest of the team forget they know how to play football and punt it at him. 

 

I'd love to see how he would do in a team that had wingers who could cross a ball
