Sometimes when a player recieves possession there is a buzz around the ground, he has that presence, a little bit of the X factor about him. He will make things happen. We have been crying out for someone like him to break the mould.

Presumably the manager will put him right about being part of a team, but I guess he's desperate to impress - which is a good thing.

This is very positive, especially considering when he was being recruited so many were waiting for expensive signings like Gayle, Forestieri or Jota and the disappointment was palpable. Yohan WHO?

Yep, good to see a player on a free impress after the transfer tantrums. I like his arrogance. Seems unafraid at all times which is great for the team as we are missing that attitude a bit.

I like him. The lad just wants to get his 1st goal as every new player does. I would always have him as an impact sub like Kamara to run at tired defenders.

The mistake from Mollo tonight that is raising eyebrows was his decision around the 90 + 5 to shoot the ball on our breakaway when he had 2-3 team mates in the box ready to receive for the 3rd goal. Maybe he is still needing to gel and isn't used to our positional play, or perhaps he is simply going for glory, but it was a poor decision.

That being said he looks solid and excellent pickup on a Free.

Not to mention the fact they kicked the resulting corner straight out of play for a goal kick when holding it in the corner would have more than sufficed, such was the tension.

In response to the 90+5 minute moment. I have to jump to his defence as it happened right in front of my seat. He slightly overran so couldn't pull it back so tried to whip it in font of the defender across goal. It actually came off a Hull defenders boot and went onto the crossbar. Had it gone in it would have been an own goal (hence the corner being given) and as such I think he made the right decision trying to put it across the box for a tap in instead of a shot.

The corner. Well the less said the better. Thought giving it to Kamara to use a bit of his muscle to hold onto it would have been a better move but, hey ho, we got the 3 points in the end.

2/2 good performances for me. Looks assured on the ball, quick change of pace, good decision making. So far on what we've seen he wouldn't look out of place in the Prem.

Not sure what happened with the corner. Seemed his team mates wanted to keep it at the flag and he was looking to knock it off the Hull defender for another corner, which didn't work. Aside from that he was a good sub and made a difference. Excited to see more from him, thought he was unlucky to not start again after his Cardiff performance, hoping he does v Burton.

The other thing with him to consider is that Graham and Ojo have both come from their respective clubs expecting starts otherwise the parent clubs wouldn't of let them go and equally they would of not wanted to join. That puts Mollo 3rd choice in that position and also the unknown signing from abroad that people were quick to assume would be rubbish so you have to forgive him being slightly over zealous and trying to impress imo. He's up against it but clearly wants to prove himself. Looks better than Ojo to me at this point, we are yet to see Graham of course.

Good to see people warming to him after some wrote him off before he even signed

Way of the world. Look at poor Djalo. Mollo has pedigree though and should do well.

for me I was worried as he had been in Russia and not playing, he had a lot of potential when in France and played well there as well. If he recaptures that then he will do well for us. He has had just one start and a few minutes of the bench so to early to judge for me, but hopefully he continues the way he has

Indeed, first impressions are decent but that is all they are.

Sometimes when a player recieves possession there is a buzz around the ground, he has that presence, a little bit of the X factor about him. He will make things happen. We have been crying out for someone like him to break the mould.
Very much a competitor, and as has been mentioned, a bit of a rough diamond, but that's what we are going to need, some aggression if we are to progress up to the next level.

Good post agree. I get excited when he gets on the ball.
