    7 goals in 20 starts. Five of which came before mid-September when you were on a decent run. He got a consolation against Villa and Spurs respectively since then. Hardly good value for money when the likes of Ings, Austin are bagging regularly.
    Include cup and that he's been feeding on scraps most of the season. 10 goals in 22 starts (got a goal against Liverpool too - if Kane gets to claim the one that was going so far wide that he was going to score at the emirates then ulloa can claim a slight deflection off the keeper) is pretty good for a relegation-battling side.

    Just as a point - he's got a shot conversion ratio of roughly 26%, better than Austin (13%) or even Kane (23%). Give him chances and he'll score

    You telling me that United intended on signing a world class striker on 300k a week to sit on the bench?
    That was the joke, mate.

    He hasn't really shown much signs of potential, other than his raw pace. As a footballer he looks horrid!

    Maybe not, but he's hardly in the same category as Cornelius, Akinbyi, Mitroglou or Danny Graham who couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo.

    Considering it's his first ever season in top flight football he's done alright tbh.

    Its his first season in the BPL, he's only like 20 and he's been playing out of position from the start of the year (as a RWB). Nonetheless, he has showed his potential in several games. Remember the one in the Stadium of Light where he scored the winner early on, hit the crossbar with a cracker and was overall fantastic. Also the games vs Basel (well it didn't last long but he changed the tempo) and Spurs showed what he can do when played forward. Surely he hasn't set the world on fire yet, but to suggest that he's one of the worst singings of the season is not fair at all!

    I don't disagree, but with players like Ings/Austin proving they have the ability to win matches, Ulloa hasn't really. Money could have been better spent imho.
