    Not inconceivable he could notch 20 before the season-end - he's presently averaging a goal every 187 pitch minutes. Completely stupid return for a L1 midfielder.

    Like all of you, I'm delighted but not surprised at his success. I will be surprised if he's not playing Championship football (one way or another) next term - that's the level Gavin thought he was capable of operating at.

    Very well done yesterday BTW, sounded like CH on the commentary. Hope you can get across the line Tuesday and into the last eight.

    Maximum pain just inflicted on posh, with one direct from a corner. Did you have a fiver on him for first goal ?

    Couldn't bring myself to bet against Posh so no :facepalm: I expect the odds of a player scoring directly from two corners in one season would have been yielded a stupid pay-out.

    Posh kept him fairly quiet for 90 minutes but that wasn't quite enough. Thirteen for the season now.

    Anyways, I'll just leave this here :thumbs:

    Part of me would like him to stay with Walsall because he's adored there and has the chance to express himself and wear the No.10 shirt. We know that he values all of those things.

    Another part of me would like him to be paid a salary commensurate with his genius, even if he temporarily winds up with another bottle-less manager without the wit or bravery to let him flourish for a year or more.

    He should be 'highly in demand' - 15 goals from midfield and a collection of peripheral national accolades whilst in a moderate side suggests to me that he's now emphatically outgrown League 1. Scoring twice from corners in the space of a few weeks has nothing to do with freak occurrences. I watched him swing many RH corners towards the angle of near-post and crossbar in the winter - this ludicrous and almost devilish precision would probably have got him burned for witchcraft had he been playing for Salem Argyle in 17th century Massachusetts.

    For sure, he's either a football god or a satanic soccer imp. As I said, I won't be crestfallen if he stays with Walsall but I feel that the football world now expects and deserves to see Erhun banging out his arcane repertoire in the Championship. At the very least.

    It's a glowing tribute of Gavin Rose's regime to note that Hamlet have improved marginally in each subsequent season from Erhun's departure. Even the 1970s Brazil side went a bit shit when Pele retired and shifted his flag to the erectile dysfunction camp.

    After watching Millwall on Saturday, they could do a lot worse than signing the Turkish Messi to bring a bit of class to a midfield that lacks a bit of composure.

    He made posh pay again yesterday. the bar must have still been rattling from his earlier strike, when he emphatically stuck away the rebound after keeper parried another effort. Posh probably more upset about what would have been a winner chalked off though.
