I’ve given Christie my fair share of stick over this season and fairly most the time. However last night is an exception as he had a solid game. He has definitely been practicing crossing and always looks dangerous with shooting. 86 touches (next highest was Bong on 54), won 10 duels, put 4 crosses in. Let’s see more of the same from him on Friday. Forest are climbing the table because we are no longer carrying 4-5 players, everyone seems to be working hard on the pitch which is great to see.
Performing more like I expected since Krovinivic, Garner and Murray joined as he’s not the only one causing problems now. In injury time he legged it across to other side of the pitch to chase down a ball which is great to see.
If we do sign him we need to make sure we can sign 2-3 others to ensure he’s worth the money.
I did have a small chuckle watching Knockaert trying to lead the counterattack a few times and looking like when cartoon characters look to be running on the spot and not being able to get away from his markers.
Ha yeah arms and legs seem to be going double time but he doesn't seem to move as much as you think he would. Good bit of acceleration to get half a yard for a cross/ shot mind. He would be devastating with another yard of pace and if he kept his head screwed on
