    He works hard and (without checking statistics) has scored once and bagged at least 2 assists.

    He seems more of a 'forward' than a 'striker'. I don't expect him to get many goals but I do see him getting a hatfull of assists.

    His workrate is excellent.

    Loved him the day he signed I think, the man has so much energy and puts himself in the game 100% of the time always closing down the ball.

    You probably know yourself the downside with him though in the fact that he doesn't get the goals like he deserves, is it bad positioning, poor finishing, shakiness in front of goal or what.

    Not saying he can't get a goal or two, just that he is better at putting his heart in the game, recovering the ball and delivering to other strikers and what not. Our problem is we already have one of those in Simon Cox.

    Can't fault him because he is so decent and anyone who puts in that much effort and has a bit of talent to go with it can't exactly be a fan punching bag, just wish he was a bit more clinical, bit more of a poacher you know.

    Thought he was excellent last night. Got the BC stand fired up when we got the first goal back, which is saying something. Could do with chipping in with a few more goals, but workrate is awesome. He looked knackered by the final whistle

    Never stops running, always looks for space and offers himself as an option.

    Our Manager Mr. Davies loves a "hard worker" and young Mackie is certainly that.

    Early days, but he looks to be developing into a very useful player for us.

    I thought he looked a little restricted on the right side of midfield last night, but predictably kept at it nonetheless.

    Even if the end product isn't always there, his movement when he plays more central is exceptional at times, as demonstrated by the amount of space he created for others to run into last Saturday.

    I think he's becoming an important factor as to the way BD decides to set the team up, be it the diamond or a flat four.

    For some reason I'm repeatedly drawn to the pics of thumbs-up Mackie. They're probably the coolest thing in the world this season.

    Andy Reid signs a new 2.5 year contract, I wonder what Jamie Mackie thinks about that.

    2 goals. He's the hardest working player i've seen in years, but he's lacking somewhat in end product. However, he's earned his place in a good team.

    Like his attitude and personality, but I've yet to be convinced by what he offers to the side. I'd prefer Paterson to play.

    Works incredibly hard. Is probably the Patron Saint of Lost Causes - he will chase anything and everything, as a result of which he will occasionally win the ball in situations long after other players would have given up.

    Most games he will miss at least 1 half decent chance.

    This can only be based on goals.

    Anyone who has watched Mackie play for 10 minutes can see what he offers to the side.

    He plays the same way all the time and is relentless. The question mark over him is whether he will score goals, but it is very clear what he offers and does every week.

    Funny thing is he looked more accomplished in the QPR side and as though he had decent technique.

    With us he looks like Jon Walters on crack. Brilliant work ethic, great attitude but im hoping we start to see the real Jamie Mackie soon, the one who impressed me at QPR.

    That's not a bad analogy!

    I don't think it helps that he is often pushed out to the wing.

    I'd like to see him have a run if games through the middle now Paterson and Paula Abdoun appear to have finally emerged as wingers.

    Not a great player, 1 million is ridiculous amount of money for him. Offers very little apart from work rate.. Possibly make a decent right back..

    I like that he gives his all. Seems a nice lad. Not a terrible player.

    Always runs at defenders, 100% work rate and positive attitude. Pressurises defenders when they have the ball. When he plays he does a great job for the team allowing other team members opportunities by his relentless work rate. Every team needs players like Mackie particularly in the championship. His weakness is his finishing and sometimes his end product is lacking but I do think he is very important to the team.

    I would like to see Pato get another go tomorrow in the same team as against West Ham except perhaps for Moussi. Perhaps Chalobah in the likely absence of Vaughan.

    Big game player. Best performances have come against QPR and Derby from what I remember. Not good against the shite sides, seems to get drawn to their level.

    Can't help thinking that if he gets a run of form and a boost of confidence, that he could be pretty damn instrumental for us being promoted.

    Never say die attitude. Yes the end product is often just amiss, such as his finishing and his final ball. However, I also think that his contribution over 90 is often overlooked because of this. He forces mistakes and is exactly the type of player that you want in your side to not give the opposition a moments rest. The man just does not accept no as an answer.

    Totally off topic, but how do I change my settings to stay logged in? I have looked a few times and found no option. It seems I only stay logged in for about 15 minutes before having to sign in again. I want to remain logged in. It's bloody annoying.
