I would be surprised if he is, to say the least. Poor boy has a lot to live up to now...

Not the same physique at all, and he attacks from the wing which was Dembele of old not the new Box to box deeper centrally lying midfielder Dembele

 086.gif So he over elaborates and is not enough effective enough in the final third?

I prefer to consider him as our new player, Emanuelson, and look forward to seeing the wonderful things he will do for us

Bit of an odd comparison. Jol can say it all he wants but Dembele has not been properly replaced.

Puts him, Urby, under pressure before he starts, unfaily raises fans expectations. Jol has been saying what we all know, we have missed Dembele and if we could have kept him results would have been different.
Can't understand why he just didn't say he was a great player and we were very lucky to get him. Everyone happy then

It was under Martin who put him into midfield and created the monster that he is Dembele. Urby could be quite decent and the only way to see is to give him  a chance

Hopefully that doesn't mean he will run around in circles....

Both exciting players but completely different in their own right.

Well Jol never compared to the modern day CM Dembele, he said he is like Dembele before he was a CM. Not sure what the problem is.

Bit of an odd comparison. Jol can say it all he wants but Dembele has not been properly replaced.

Which is good, because he never said that.

Been blown way out of proportion, an off the cuff comment and suddenly its bad man management...

I find Jol says a lot of things that come across as being a bit tactless. I'm not sure if it's a language thing, or just the way he is.

nor has Murphy. The thing is that we can't afford a player as good as Dembele is now. As for Murphy, there are at least 15 Premier League clubs that would love to have the Murphy we signed from Spurs. Players like Murphy are very thin on the ground. We're blessed to have had him in our colors.

Yeh, the club got very lucky with both of those.  And both improved beyond recognition too, so hoping to replace either let alone both would be fruitless.

Wishful thinking by Jol. Can yoe imagine any club loaning us a player up to  Dembele's standard on loan for 14 premiership matches.

Oh come on, he said "a bit like Dembele" that could be any bit from his general play. For example if you look at the videos of Emanuelson on youtube you can make a conclusion he's better than Dembele cause after all the dribbling he usually ends up one on one with the keeper and scores....

I'm just going off the only quote available to me in the thread. Not my fault if it's out of context.
