Ricster said:davymcfc said:the boy has pace, unbelievable skill but my problem with him at the moment is the fact he has no end product. i said it before he came on last night and i think he proved my point. if he sorts this out as he gets older then i can see a great great player in the making.
How does he have no end product when he set up a goal with a cross that Robben or Ribery would've been proud of? And also fizzed in a couple of crosses that were similar to the one above. Between the goalkeeper and the defensive line is the best place to put a cross, and its not Vladi's fault if nobody made the run to get on the end of them.
The end product can be improved, i agree, but that comes with experience, but dont knock him, he isn't the finished article yet, but when he is, i cant wait to see what we have.
He was immense, absolutely fantastic, he did everything, hes even bulked up and looks a lot stronger on the ball. Good lad Vlad...Ricster said:Apparantly been rampant tonight and will surely shut the blues up that have questioned his potential.
He has the potential to be as good as Cristiano Ronaldo and im not kidding.
Latest under our scout's gaze is Manchester City winger Vladimir Weiss - recommended by Sky Sports reader Alex Levy.
The scout reports...
Vladimir Weiss is already emerging as a key figure for his national side Slovakia, not unusual you might think. But it is when you consider that he has made just one first-team appearance for his club side Manchester City.
Weiss is an out-and-out winger, at home on either side - but very much right-footed and the side he prefers.
Blessed with searing pace, he has all the other weapons you could wish for a wide-man, with close control, skill and crossing also in his armoury.
Weiss first came to the fore during City's Youth Cup success in 2008 when he starred in their final victory over a very highly-rated Chelsea side.
Weiss was handed his full City debut at the end of last season when he came on in the final game of the campaign against Bolton.
Despite City's huge summer investments, Weiss is still being tipped to make the breakthrough at Eastlands - although with Shaun Wright-Phillips ahead of him, he may find it difficult.
Reminiscent of Arjen Robben in his willingness to run at somebody, he is taller than the Dutchman and, if anything, is slightly more open to getting a cross into the area - probably because he has been schooled that way in England.
His performances in helping Slovakia qualify for the World Cup, particularly his display against Northern Ireland, where he gave Jonny Evans a torrid time, have cemented his reputation as one of Europe's best young wing prospects.
The scout says...
At 19, Weiss can afford to wait for his chance at City - but with his talents he could easily be playing first-team football elsewhere.
His father is coach of Slovakia, so that should help him cement his place at the World Cup, and a good performance in South Africa could force him to look at his options - but City have done a great job with him so far, so no reason to suggest they would not be willing to give him his big break.
