Glad he's doing well over there.

We will always have that goal you scored at Luton Pat. One of my favourite awayday celebrations.

I think he was desperate to do well for us and held the ball up well. However, far, far too slow. Saying that, fair play to him.

Pretty much this. He was technically good but too one-paced and flat footed to make an impact on English football. Nevertheless, he scored a handful of important goals and certainly helped bring some of the best play out of Roofe. He was a real team player.

Well done, Pat, on his championship win!

He had one or two very good moments, the deft header he did to lay the ball off for Roofe's goal at Bristol Rovers was top quality. He had a footballing brain but unfortunately his legs weren't quite quick enough and he was a tad too short.
It was a gamble that just didn't pay off, unfortunately. But it is these sort of players we should continue trying out, some will work (and be a great success) others won't and they can move on after 6 months.

He was crap, but it's worth taking a punt on a player now and again to see if it works out!

I will remember him for his chest pass to Roofe to hit a cracking goal against Bristol Rovers

I thought he was a good player, but plenty of other English clubs tried him and let him go, so he obviously didn’t have what it took here
