One of several very promising performances last night.  Built like another rather famous Argentinian midget, only looks about three times as hard.  Looks psychotic, has pace to burn, lots of skill, works hard, tackles, afraid of nothing.  Going to be a favourite in a team packed with talent.

How the fuck does he win those headers when he's at least a foot shorter.

I imagine he nuts blokes a foot taller than he is.  You'd want him in your gang in a dark laneway.

Please don't remind me of midgets. Brings back memories of the midgets we used to have.

Scary thing is watching him last night, you can tell he still has plenty of room for improvement, e.g other player awareness, etc. Colazo obviously even more so. 

This team will be phenomenally good when the rhythm is fully there.

Goes in harder than Melling, but Melling is built like an MMA fighter, not this bloke. No fancy AIS and gyms for 'nando, only eating dirt and surviving the villa miserias. That's how you make a real hard mf.

You think he gives a fuck that he looks like he stole some batteries from Coles and then tried to refund them for a pack of smokes? Nope, he's not a narcissistic pretty boy like Novillo. Doesn't even have any social media profiles. The club did like a 5 minute video exclusively on this guy and he spoke two words during the whole thing, because he does his talking on the pitch. Won't be throwing any tantrums either, if 'nando has a problem he'll just do us all a favour and shank JVS.

Love this cunt.

Love to see his studs up double flying kick when Musctard gives some lip off the bench,

Seriously, I didn't think that could be possible. I said to my son when they lined up that they better keep the ball down for him, then Rose, Kilkenny and Jakobsen just kept pumping high balls to him and I think I only saw him lose one ariel contest. Unbelievable.

Outstanding player.

Whoever gave him the nickname "Pinga" pages back got it right. Looks and acts like the type still sweating it out at a million beats a minute at 6:00am on the dancefloor that no one wants to go near.

He'll ship a red no doubt at some point this season, but hopefully it will only be when we're 3 nil up with just 8 mins left to play.

City Ground,
Oh mist rolling in from the Trent,
My desire,
Is always to be here,
Oh City Ground

Now that is a chant for a cold winter's arvo!

I picked Heart in season 1 for the Red, but stayed after the colour change for the seasonal optimism followed by crushing mediocrity.

Me too Cloughie.  Works for Walsall fans too.  Done both the City ground (3-3) and Meadow Lane (twice, both wins).

  :) Forest since 1984.  I've sung that in the Trend End more than a few times.

I picked Heart for the same reason when they started.  I'm  a Kiwi but I spent  24yrs in UK and I lived 1km from the City Ground for a good  few years and used to work on the Evening Post. 

You'll see me at AAMI in a yellow or red Tricky Top (with no advertising on it, a great bonus of the first year of this Fawaz era).

And now, back  to our regularly scheduled City programming..... B)  COYR

You and Cloughie should recognise my avatar.   Notts born an bred, played for Forest before an illustrious Walsall career...  But possibly before your time?

I honestly cant tell if this guy is fast or slow because of his dodgy running ability.

Apart from that, ghetto Messi.

Relentless running, great to watch.

Also,I love this guy's goal celebration. He looked like wanna destroy everything in front of him after scored the fourth goal.

He's bloody lightning. I haven't seen him in person yet, but the way he was closing down some Victory players that looked to be in plenty of space when the pass was made was ridiculous.

He looks like a dynamite player and one that will fly so far under the radar with Colazo, Fornaroli, Cahill, Kamau and Brattan getting so much of the attention.

Yeah he looked like he needed something to smash. You could see his determination. He has a weird running style but he has something special. Hope this goal takes him to another level. Very happy for the bloke.

Guy was so coked up that he needed to destroy the advertising after he scored. Looks like one of those guys who'd get into a fight over a cigarette outside Sunshine station.
Love it, hopefully he can carry this form through the season. But he seems like a gun so far.

Destroyed Geria and anything else that got in his way. He's Novillo on steroids - just doesn't drop his head and keeps going. Great pickup for us.

Yelling "pingers" every time he touches the ball is my favorite part of being a city fan.
