Tbf he has learnt a lot, still young and has dropped a level but to a decent club on the up again finally. I think it's a good move for him and I can see him do well. There is a player in there, I was happy to see him move on, but if someone can get him playing to his attributes and teach him how to jump and head the ball, he could hit 15-20 in L1.

I would have thought he needs someone like Joey Barton to bully the physicality out of him

I remember watching his first interview when he signed, and just watched his Bolton video too. Seems like a nice guy who has learned all the right things to say but it's so monotone and devoid of passion. I think that carries over into his game. Has learned how to be a decent footballer but doesn't have the natural hunger or passion to regularly lift himself up on a match day to be a ruthless striker. Think he has just got a very passive, introverted personality which may always hold him back from fulfilling the sum of his physical attributes.

Hope he gets an extended run of games there and maybe a few early goals and the love of the fans will give him the confidence and desire to continue that.

I think he will do well at Bolton, he's going to be playing off another big striker, so I can see him getting on the end of a few knock downs, and at that level he will score a few.
If he can find his inner beast mode he could be another Clarke-Harris.

Maybe, however he played a part in our League 1 title win. For that I wish him the best
How many players do we have now that shows the ability to be squad members for this season?

Like I said on another thread, he'll go about scoring 6-8 games a season in the lower leagues most of his career but one year he'll go mad and hit 25 before returning to type.

Probably the exact same thing as here. Has all the physical characteristics and is probably a great trainer.

Unfortunately he just doesn’t transfer it to the match day and doesn’t have the mental grit to consistently be a top striker. Not convinced he’ll prove me wrong.
