Roeder Faces The Obvious Question

Roeder Faces The Obvious Question

Giuseppe Rossi's contribution against Portsmouth was superb in conditions that were close to ridiculous.

The 19-year-old, on loan from Manchester United, was thrown into the starting line-up for the first time and he repayed Glenn Roeder with a great goal at the start of the second-half.

Roeder: 'Giuseppe Rossi has been very patient waiting for an opportunity. He will certainly get plenty of opportunities between now and the end of December.

'It was a fantastic finish. I would expect him to finish there because I have seen it so often.

'I have seen it in games when he was at Manchester United, whether it was his opportunities in the first team or in reserve-team football.

'He is, in my opinion, a natural goal scorer, and he worked so hard for the team as well. He was a real pain for their defence.'

yea but why are our best options ameobi, sibierski and a kid at 19 to play beside martins, ok ameobi scored a few goals pre-season and early on, but he has a hip problem which he insisted he didn't need operated on in the summer now he does need it operated on, and sibierski has scored two important goals in the uefa cup but he's not premiership quality. Rossi, great player, doesnt have the experience and we have to give him back come january where is the 20 goals a season man because martins isnt it
