    He can run rings around defenders with his height and deft of touch so he definitely offers something

    Liked the look of him when we signed him, but thought he'd play far more of a bit-part role than he is doing. Love his unpredictability & presence.

    Well done Sammy, keep it up.

    Replacing him with a more intelligent, one-touch, faster winger might be the difference between top two and top six.

    I like how he's trying, but I don't think he's starter material.

    Bit harsh to be calling him out on the back of a game when he got 2 assists and should have won us a penalty.

    While I agree his inconsistency can be frustrating, I'd say has offered us far more than Lolley these past 10 games.

    He was MotM ish last night. That run and cross for Grab's goal was great.

    Stand Firm And Strike Hard

    Wouldn't replace him, we just need the added option of pace & quality.

    Even if Sammy was playing like Lolley last year, we'd still need another wide man & some pace anyway, so regardless of what the current 3 are doing, that signing should remain a firm target.

    Sammy's physicality, ability to hold on to the ball and disco dribbling gives us something different. He deserves his place in the team.

    We also need a fast pacey wide player to offer us something else.

    It's the dawdling on the ball and the multiple touches that get to me. First half we had about 3 or 4 really good chances to overload their defence and those opportunities ended with Ameobi taking an age to decide what to do and then running into two players and losing the ball.

    We moved the ball so much quicker with Carvalho and Silva moving around each other. It helped that QPR were down to 10 but that slickness hadn't been there for 70 odd minutes.

    I'd agree he's given us more than Lolley recently though, but Lolley at his best is better than Ameobi at his best.

    Exactly my thoughts

    He’s the kind of entertaining player who gets you off your seat, because the defenders haven’t got a clue what he’s going to do (as on perhaps some occasions, neither has Sammy!)

    I like him though.

    Surprised Ameobis getting dug out, thought he was decent last night. Ball sticks well enough & he's one of a few at the club who can travel distances with it at his feet. Certainly feels like he's offering more than Adomah & Lolley.

    Cracking assist for Grabban last night.

    ameobi has the unpredictability that adomah and currently lolley this season is lacking , he might not be consistent but he can produce some outstanding skill at any given time and for that is why he's starting.

    No matter how frustrating in some circumstances he is doing enough in most games to contribute to our success as a team. One of the unexpected success stories for me. Adds a different edge to the team with what he brings.

    I still view him as very much a short-term signing. Medium-term - he could earn it over the season.

    But if you look at Sabri with Rennes his team's attacking thrived off direct/physical/speedy/even hard-working wingers that get you up the pitch.

    Ismaila Sarr (Ameobi) & more of a midfielder Bourigeaud (in a way Lolley) were his wide men at Rennes.

    Bourigeaud is not simply a right-sided attacker. He can drop deep to help the defence when Prcic or Lea-Siliki go forward or he can offer his own attacking threat – he leads the team in assists and is their second top scorer this season after Khazri. Bourigeaud’s flexibility and workrate give Khazri and Sarr freedom from defensive responsibilities and more space in which to work.

    An absolute peach of a ball, dropped into exactly the right place, right on Lewis‘s toes, meant the striker couldn’t miss.

    Hit at pace as well, and after he’s skinned the defender.

    A fantastic team goal, right from Ben Watson smashing the Hoops player to mug him for the ball and then spreading it wide for a counter-attack.

    He goes from the sublime to the ridiculous and then back again very quickly. There was one through ball later on which should have put him clear on goal but somehow he managed not to lay even a stud on the ball despite it being almost inch perfect. He's frustrating as hell but we have to be honest, if he wasn't so frustrating and inconsistent (during a match) he'd be playing at a higher level.

    I like Sammy; give me a player who does the unpredictable and is a character to the well-coached but soulless player.

    I liked Len Shackleton's style, so I suppose I like a bit of entertainment to go with my football.

    Yeah, sometimes it's his 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th that are the problem

    That cross last night would have graced the Premiership though and there's no doubt he's won us points this season.
    Works alot harder than I thought he would when he first signed for us too. He'd always struck me as a fair weather player who's head dropped when things weren't going his way.
    No signs of that this season. He's very much a team player who seems genuinely thrilled to be here.

    Wonder if he will sign beyond this season. He might not be triple A, but he's still been a great asset

    This lad is such a strange creature.

    On the ball, he's very much an individual. He turns away from his own players into blind alleys, plays passes as a last resort and would rather lose the ball trying to take someone on than use a teammate. But I don't think any of it's through being malicious, if that's the right word. Just think he has the ball and his only thought is to take people on himself and go towards goal.

    He was moments where he beats people and creates chances. He adds the option of going long from goal kicks and his control really is brilliant out of the air.

    He's so frustrating at times too though. He goes from turning players and showing great feet, to being clean through with a good touch but getting stuck and literally tripping over his own feet.

    Part of me questions if he looks after himself all that great. By that I mean eating/sleeping. Because he often looks fatigued after a burst. But he certainly does his best to support his LB.

    Shit-Good truly is the perfect description of him.

    It's a tough one. Because i imagine he'll want security and good money. A good season with us might see him getting an offer from a mid-table side with term and decent money. So he might be one who we see have a good year for us, but then move on because he isn't someone I think we should be looking to break the bank/tie down for year-end years for.

    If he's happy with average money and 2yr deals. I think he's worth it though. He's one who even if we improve the squad, will have value off the bench/through periods of needing something different/unpredictable.
