"He looks a Shadow of himself."

"In the two games, he looks leggy and  lacking in enthusiasm. I know for a centre-forward, and anyone will tell you this, is 90% relying on the kind of passes he's getting and he's not getting a great deal from that midfield.

"He needs to waken himself up, he came off flat in the first game - is he carrying something? He looks a Shadow of himself."
