Whatever he is he will be better than we we had before.

Good heavens, guys. Jol just made the comparison because Urby is clever on the ball with some pace. He said he doesn't have the same physique/strength as Dembele. Relax.

This doesn't raise my expectation any farther than to think perhaps Jol expects Urby to have the ability to dribble around a few players.  I haven't been the happiest with Jol's man management but let's cut the man a little slack here.  After all, we are all prone to comparing players to others that we are familiar with.

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.

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.

Actually the Murphy we signed from Spurs wasn't at all wanted, he'd been out of form and out of favour. Same with Huddlestone. If he was at any other club than Spurs we'd have signed him.

Exactly.  As soon as Jol said that he was quick to say that there was only one player like Dembele.

yes he should have tempered things by saying, he is a bit like Dembele and a bit like shefki kuqi... there everyone satisfied?
He and Shefki Kuqi do have the same number of legs.  Let's hope that's all they have in common.

I remember when many were not overly keen on Dembele saying he dribbled but there was no end product! He didn't score that many but was a good player. I think if we try and compare Emanuelson to him it will be easy to find areas where he is better and worse, and therefore should not be attempted. I'll take him on his own merit and would not be surprised if he scores more in his short time here then D did in his longer spell. Not that will make one better than the other - just different!
