    Well, it's halfway through the season, so the perfect time to ask about our on loan striker.

    What would he get on his Christmas report card?

    Seems to have potential - he's quick, has a good strike... but lacks confidence, plays within himself a little. Gave away the ball a fair bit.

    Didn't enjoy his first season with us due to injuries and being played wide left until those injuries.

    Would you rather have Borini in your squad or Victor pissing Moses?

    I like Borini.

    Thought he was gonna be a striker, but happy at how he's playing. Played yesterday, even though he was ill, full marks to the lad.

    Canny shot on him, play him with better players, think he's got massive potential..

    8/10 from me.

    Id be happy if he stayed with us as I think there is a decent footballer in there. I wasn't too excited when we signed him on loan as I didn't rate the lad after his Chelsea and Liverpool highlights but having seen him up close now I am well happy with him. I think he could be a real goal scoring midfielder/winger in the making but he isn't strong enough to lead the line.

    To have him sitting behind the main striker in a 5 man midfield, or as an attacking midfielder behind a front 2 for games against lesser teams, he would excel. I hope he is fit for the Villa game.

    Cest don't you think he could play up front with Fletcher? I think he is our quickest attacking player and could play on the shoulder of the last defender, with fletch holding it up from a slightly withdrawn position.

    We may need 4-4-2 to break down the likes of villa, who will 100% sit deep and look to hit us on the break.

    Hope we sign the lad, as with Ki, he's been one of the better PDC signings, hope we can keep them both.
