    Clearly before you ended up twatting off you never bothered to notice he was being compared to the next Messi.

    Correction No differentiating attribute meant to say.

    Look I hope the lad makes it. Just don't see the obsession with lad, I and a few others were chuckling away n the stands at Barnet thinking wtf.

    He's more entertaining than an England game at least.

    If he also ends up with a professional career average of 1 in 3. He will have had a fantastic career.

    If you think Cody mcdonald has had fantastic career. Yup agreed decent scoring record at non league level and at Gillingham but I'm sure his benchmark is set a bit higher than him..lol.

    I'm sure if in thirty years time he looks back and thinks the only goals he ever scored were at gillingham he will truly think he made it

    I agree with most of what you say here, although I wouldn’t be so quick to write him off, we just haven’t seen enough of him yet. He does look ‘heavy’, presumably his natural build, but I’m sure City will be looking at that. We need to know what his overall game is like, can he hold the ball up, build play, defend/press, or is he an out and out poacher, which may not be enough for us at this time. Be interesting to see how he develops. I thought both Biamou and McNulty played well yesterday, worked hard, and were close to goals in the second half yesterday. The lack of goals is a concern, but I do think we have some good players up front, who will improve as the season goes on.

    Remember the Thorn gem of "I always wanted Cody McDonald over Adam Lefondra, he was our first choice"!:emoji_grin:

    Wasn't comparing him to Messi!
    Just pointing out there is a 16-year old having success in Serie A, so saying Ponticelli is too young at 19 to play at the lowest level of league football in England is ridiculous.
    Our three main strikers McNulty, Beavon and Biamou have scored ONE goal between them all season.

    Using the exception to the rule to prove your point is deeply flawed. How many players are actually ready at 16? Rooney clearly was, but even the likes of Messi didn’t really shine till 19. Besides, these are either world class or potentially world class players. Ponticelli was signed as an academy player at 17, he’s been involved in a professional environment for barely 2-3 years. So I really do believe MR when he says ‘he isn’t up to standard yet’.

    The main thing Ponticelli has got going for him is that he’s a natural goal scorer. So if we manage his development right, he’ll be a player who will be able to move up the leagues with us if we do get a bit of momentum.

    The kid has got bags of potential, but, potential and current ability are two different things.

    You got a like from Grendel. That's like getting a Paul Hollywood handshake.

    'A Paul Hollywood handshake' sounds like a grotesque euphemism. It may well be for all I know. I'm out of touch.

    Ponticelli is a player I would use 20 minutes from the end of the game , especially where we have a high ratio of shots on goal but little end product. I do think he was brought on too late against Barnet. Cody McDonald... he was shiit, end of story.

    As for pace, remember John Williams? the fastest postman in the west? a prime example of where pace is not everything.

    Ponticelli- sounds like a town in Wales.
    Wales - failed to qualify for the world cup.
    The World Cup - being held in Russia.
    Russia - what is the Russia with Ponticelli.

    Its ok bringing him on for valuable minutes/experience in some games as to the chances we have it depends on how these chances are being created if Jones and co get the ball into the box for chances then maybe Ponticelli will score but unless he changes his game plan i cant see him creating many chances for himself but its amazing how a couple of goals transforms a player. Just look at Jones

    I have in the past left it up to mark Robins to decide when it is best to play him but now we should give him a run of games its div 4 after all, he must play now surely
