You Sir, are currently living in dream land. Has he got the potential to get to where you suggest he already is? Possibly. Is he there yet? Not a cat in hells chance. He was up against Wheeler to start with who, love him as many of us do, isn't a striker. Had Sam Vokes been fit, Chieck would have had a very, very different game to contend with and not one he would have been able to cruise through with the comfort he had last night. When he's dealt with the likes of Vokes and a certain Mr Stockley to name a couple who instantly come to mind (and I'm sure there will be a few more to add to that list when I think about it) and still looks as unruffled as he did last night, then you might have something to shout about. I'm not say he can't or won't but let's wait until he does before you start blowing too much wind up his arse.For me, equal MOM with Collins last night v Wycombe - but only because Collins had an excellent game also (like quite a few others).
Let there be no doubt ladies and gentlemen, Diabate right now is Championship starting XI standard ......... and as for the future? Towering, tenacious, strong, fit, and super fast with dogged determination and 'thou shalt not pass philosophy'. And he's calm on the ball. Yes, is he still a little raw around the edges. But you can see how he has gained confidence since regularly appearing at the start of the year. Really encouraging last night also to see him make telling long passes out of defence into clever areas.
We will get ££££££££££s for him ..... I just hope we can hang on to him for this season until other clubs start to sniff around, because they will.
For now, enjoy the ride (and our promising league position). Can't wait to start playing the likes of Ipswich, Wednesday, Bolton now to see where we really are in this League?
