Thread: You have to ask...

    You have to ask...

    ......Paterson was our leading goal scorer last season. After just four games this term, he is again our leading scorer (including getting the first League goal conceded at Anfield since February). He also has shown the sort of belligerent attitude we need - unlike some of his team mates.

    So, why didn't Warnock play him from Day One?

    Tbf there were lots slating his ability at the start of this season.

    He's got a bizarre knack of being in the right place at the right time. Two of his goals have come as a result of deflections that fell straight into his path. The other goal was a bit of a mishit scuff as well. May he keep being our fox in the box!

    Absolutely! It's a definite knack that I doubt can be taught.

    I remember his goal at Derby last season. An absolute belter. No reason why he couldn't lead the line all season if he keeps getting goals.

    Patterson is simply your old fashioned British footballer, no deft skills but enough ability to get buy, I watched him today and noticed he usually finds a player, his desire to win is second to none,thank god we have him ,hell'va of a signing

    Paterson is one of the most intelligent football players we have in the team. If you watch him in matches he's continually making life difficult for the defenders and knows where he needs to be to take advantage of a situation.

    This is a skill that can't be taught, and allying that to power, strength, speed and bloody-mindedness means he is probably of most value to us in attack, where his lack of a real finesse with his ball skills is not as important as his determination to get anything he can on a ball. I think that was best illustrated in his shot at the end which just went wide. I didn't think he'd be able to get it away

    Along with Gunnarsson. It’s why we love this board.

    There was one moment when he made three runs to get behind the defense.

    None of the City players saw them.

    But I did

    He's super-fit

    Re: You have to ask...

    He was, as 'arry Redknapp might say, triffic today.
    He does not stop hustling and competing, even for balls 60-40 in the defender's favour.
    He knows where the goal is and can finish.

    He may not be the finished article, and he may struggle against sides with a bit more quality than BHA, but he is the best we have when asked to do a certain job.
    He has surprised me fair play.

    It was done. A mate of mine at his first City game absolutely loved it 🙂
