To be honest I went to the game looking to be impressed but wasn't.

I though his attitude was poor and missed the impressive bits - I just thought he was ineffective.

Anyway the thread prompted some debate

John, if he was playing in our team would scare the crap out of most teams in our league. He's big, he's fast and has a presence about him. He'll leave t'Bees when they go down as they surely will.
Christiano would struggle to make any impression in Barnets team.

I'm still haunted by adam Murray going with a flat back 10 to counter akinde last season and he still scored and won 1-0 :lol:

Some absolutely ludicrous posts on here.

He's scored nearly 100 goals in 150 league games.

An absolute unit, but has good feet and pace. I'd sign him in a flash.

In fairness Leo Messi would look tosh in Barnet's side.

He will be 29 at the end of the year, will cost a good fee and decent wages. Whilst be might be good getting us out of lg2 I think there would be better value for money options for a team aiming for gd finish in lg1 next yr
