Clem on Look North's description of Jonas. Agree or not?

Haven't read the article but what I'll say about Jonas is the lads attitude and work rate are fantastic (but so were milners) he's the only player in midfield who gets you on the edge of your seat so he's going to have lot's of admirers...I'm one of them in that respect but his shooting and final ball are woeful.............has to improve this aspect of his game hugely.

Agree Orca. I can't wait for the day he does score to see his new celebration!

Doesn't do enough for me.

Doesn't score, hardly ever creates a goal, goes down like a tart when hardly touched, doesn't win the ball very often.

Ah but he does chase back and put in the odd slide tackle! - fuck me, get in, well done Jonas.

Now get up the end of the pitch you are supposed to play in and create something!

The bloke could be so much more than he is.

He has some pace, great control, bit of trickery, fantastic balance, fantastic engine, fantastic will, bizarely nothing at all in the final third!!!

I dont think it helps that he is on the left wing, surely he should be on the right if that is his stronger foot, we can hardly say he in on the left to cut in and shoot can we.

I really think a good manager could take him to another level, KK would have been ideal.

Diego Maradona seems to like him, cheating Argy cunt or not, I would take his word for it over Mz Fur Coat & Nee Knickers

Id say that headline sums him up pretty well. You could say he is Milner without the goals.......

i agree - however he has the presence of mind to cover as we generally need it as our defence goes AWOL. maybe if we had a better central midfield and full backs he wouldn't have to spend all his time covering the clowns.

With better players in the midfield he would be fucking awesome i have no doubt in my mind.

He's like a popular version of Zog - lots of runs and dribbles but very rarely any end product.

I agree with the "no end product" replies. Feel he is one of many hiding in the final third when we need players to stand up, take control and try a shot now and again.

Mind he had a fantastic start to his toon career, I would love to see what he could have done when full of confidence and in a team playing well.

Could say that to a few more of our players too though eh.

With KK he would be 10 times what he is now.

Agree with the above. Doesn't help having Shola standing like a bliddy statue in the middle though, doesn't help the wingers at all.
