Thread: Che Adams

  1. #1

    Default Che Adams

    Looking like another duff buy - plenty of time to come good but at the moment looks like a Championship player with very poor vision and control.

    Our front line looks even weaker than last season with Ings and Adams.

    Shocking

    According to the BBC

    Danny Ings and Che Adams link up nicely again - they must be a pain to play against

    Che Adams will come good, I have faith in him as a purchase. He needs a different partner though I think ... I want to see him with Long in the 2nd half.

    My opinion on signing Adams has become a bit of a meme on here but I've been proven right so far, he looks hopelessly out of his depth as most good championship goalscorers do. As I said, 22 goals is only 3 more than Stern John scored for us in the Championship (and less than Rasiak did I believe?).

    Needs a bit of work, but the way Ricky improved his game with every promotion I'm not going to write Adams off yet. Does need a goal soon though obviously.

    The goal stats don't mean much, you need to watch them. And I didn't watch Adams so couldn't say whether he'd come good or not. His clips show goals most of which wouldn't happen in this league though.

    Lambert was always going to make the step up because he had an amazing touch, good vision and composure. But most don't have that and don't make the step up.

    More concerned about how little of a threat Ings is now though.

    I like Adams, he’s strong and holds it up quite nicely, he just needs a goal for his confidence. His first two games he was getting into good positions, narrowly missing chance against both Burnley and Liverpool. Since then, he’s getting less chances and being quieter in games. To me that suggests a confidence issue. For me, as mentioned above, Ings’ ineffectiveness is much of a worry. Che will come good.

  13. Default

    I'm pretty confident he'll do decently well once we get a few home games against teams that aren't likely to finish in the top 8 or so.

    He has enough about him, but it its a big step up when you're up against Van Dijk, Maguire, De Gea and the like instead of Championship defenders/keepers.

    There’s something seriously wrong with this now now now, me me me generation that can’t let a young lad develop in the toughest league into the world without instantly writing him off.

    We’re Southampton not Man City. Get a grip you helmets

    Normally I would knee jerk and remove him from my fantasy team but with international break I expect Ralph to be working him hard so will keep him for a couple more games.

    To be fair to the lad his first 4 games have had Burnley's CBs, Van Dijk and Maguire and the team around him is also learning the system to play.

    Well said. Some of our fans have the ability to drain confidence from a player. Its not a great look.

    Think he has done ok, he needs a goal but is not a concern.

    Strong lad, quick enough and we know he can finish.

    It took Jay a little while to get his first goal for us after his transition from the Championship, people were doubting him too. It'll come for Che, he causes problems with his movement and has a lot of power and strength in his game.

    Snatches at chances a bit at the moment, probably through eagerness. He just needs one to go off of his backside to get him going.

    It takes time to for some players to adapt to premiership. He’s done ok, not spectacular but he needs time. Bellends slagging him off already����

    Ricky scored quality goals from day one of being at Saints, Che Adams from what I've seen even of his time at Birmingham has only scored goals that involved poor defending or goalkeeping.

    I correctly called Ramirez, Moi, Hoedt and Carrillo v early but won't do same with Adam's

    Needs a goal and better service. Give him time.

    I made a post about how useless Carrillio was ,was i right?.........i got slated for it uuummmm ..tick for me i think,but i do think Che will prove a good buy,

    my other concern is theres a lack of depth in the attackers, atm Obafemi seems to be very injury prone himself atm not looking to promissing for the lad atm,

    having been out since Arsenal game last season,dosent seem to be able to shrug of hamstrings.

    This. To say he looks out of his depth is utterly ludicrous. But for a bit of luck in front of goal he looks more than good enough to play in the premier league on the evidence I have seen so far. I'm confident he will come good.

    It's much too early to write him off. Let's wait till he gets a goal and a bit of confidence then see what happens. He's still a youngster.

    He'll be fine. Snatched at his good chance because he's feeling the pressure. He's been up against quality defences so far. The goals will come.

    On our walk back from the game we were discussing Adams and my two comments were;

    He is a huge improvement over Austin
    It's nice to not have to listen to Saints fans bleat on that "he looks every inch a Championship player" just because he hasn't scored yet.

    Obviously I was wrong.

    He is a decent enough player for the fee we paid. He will score and then he will probably go on a run and bag a few.

    Support him.

    Yep, I've got a feeling he'll get a couple against the Skates and press on from there.

    I would imagine our scouts look at a little more than just the ‘goals scored’ column...

    The kid needs a chance, clearly has decent attributes. I’m confident he will do OK, a goal will do his confidence the world of good.

    Agreed.

    If he was successful now now now he would probably be off off off very quickly..............probably to Liverpool.

    He will come good, but better for us if it’s not too quick.

    There’s a good player in Che Adams. He’s one I’m willing to give plenty of time too.

    Agree with much of this. Adams looked strong and a 'handful' during the first half against Liverpool and showed some pace and ability to hold the ball up. A goal under his belt and his confidence will be up and we'll see a half decent return for a first season in this league (I'm hoping between 10-15 goals).

    Ings remains a concern in front of goal even if some of his passing and link up play is good to watch (Brighton last week).

    I'd be willing to wager that Adams will not breach double figures this season. Not the pessimist in me, just the pragmatist from years of having to realistically and objectively view football players abilities in relation to the league relevant.

    After seeing the OP, was gonna pipe in with a comment along the lines of 'new player, same ****ing thread'. But it appears there's actually a pretty sane contingent here that are willing to give him time. Just hope that translates to attitudes displayed by our fans in the grounds.

    You get what you pay for.
    Haller for West Ham was purchased at 3 times more than Adams and IMHO will score three times more than Che.

    Poor miss today. Absolutely slashed at it with no composure, with plenty of time too. Worrying signs but still has plenty of time to get a goal and then we'll see what that does for his confidence. Looks a decent player in there somewhere.

    For the next few games he should come on at around the hour mark. Let him build up his confidence because at the moment he needs a bit of a boost. The quality is there and his speed is excellent. Just give the lad a chance because it's a big leap from Championship to Prem. One tip for what it's worth is Don't get provoked by the professional fouls from the more cynical well practiced defenders.

    J Rod took ages to find his feet but you could see had some of the attributes to succeed, as this lad seems to have as well.

    Stickers need goals. That’s all they need. Che has a few chances and not converted. At least he is those positions to score. Ings and Adams have both have been good this season and are paramount to the early press we are playing. Both Liverpool and man united’s defence have found it hard playing against us and been under pressure. Hopefully they will both a get a few goals against Pompey and then will overnight be heroes! Far to early to judge but have definitely been positive signs.

    Would have to disagree. With Adams, you can see the quality is there, it just hasn't clicked yet. For him it's a new club, new league, new style of playing. Let's give him a little more time than 4 games to bed in.

    It’s 2019. We have to completely judge him after 4 games
