I actually thought the lad showed promise and felt he, like Mustafi, was released too early !
As Simon has so succinctly mentioned he has been banging them in with regularity, where ever he has gone ! Enough said !

He's forging a good career though and I'm pleased for him. Hope he does well in the Premier League. But I don't think he would have change our world by any stretch in the race for fourth since he left.
I await the humble pie when he goes on to score 20 in the EPL, but as I have said, didn't set the championship alight, so we should hardly have missed him. I liked James Vaughan more.

Fellaini scored plenty of goals from just off the main striker and none of our present midfielders score enough Â– that is including Barkley!
Unfortunately we move too slowly to satisfy me; maybe I am just too ambitious having watched the Blues when we were a really top side. I had quite a few bets on Everton and came through when we won league titles and FA Cups. But I have not had a penny on them since the Premier League came into being so I have not lost anything on them for years.

Jutkiewicz is mediocre at best. If you're saying we should keep everyone like that, then Daniel Fox, Cadamarteri, Baxter, Simonsen, Branch etc would still be here.
As for Mustafi? He was young and way down the pecking order. He'd have let his contract expire and left long before he made the first team. To his credit, he went elsewhere... IMPROVED Â– and went to the World Cup.
Big deal Â– you can't blame Moyes for that unless you'd have preferred to see him start instead of Jags or Distin two or three years ago.
"He won the World Cup!" So what! So did Branco but that didn't help Boro much did it?

As for us, why would we want him, even now after he has spent several years developing? We will likely add a top striker (Lukaku is evidently our number one target), and perhaps Traore to our squad. This guy isn't near the class of Kone or even Naismith, let alone the likes of Lukaku. He will barely feature for Burnley, and will be playing Championship football again in a year I expect.

Jutkiewicz has played approx 250 pro games, scored 57 goals and is only 25, thatÂs not bad.(Remember, strikers normally develop with age and game time). He still has a substantial amount of time to develop into a good Premier League player; only time will tell.
One thing I know is that he deserved his chance at the top table and heÂs definitely done his apprenticeship in the Championship.
