Two assists in his first game Woeking fans certainly know a good player when they see one,

Wasn't exactly tested defensively and attacking wise Guiseley afforded both our full backs a lot of space, Arthur took advantage and got 2 assists to his name crossing for the third and sixth goal. So far so good but I'm sure that he will face tougher tests.

I agree but reading their forum he was the worst player ever to cross the white line. :roll:

I thought he was solid and got in some good crosses - certainly not the donkey that Woeful fans talked about!

Gary worked with Chris whilst he was in the youth team at QPR, so he'll know how to get the best out of him.

He played a steady and influential game and was instrumental in the build up of two of our goals.
He will be coached well whilst he is here and we will benefit from the management's work with him.
Maybe Lord Hill (The Saviour) didn't have quite the expertise with players, hence the Woeking fans' grizzle!!!

I loved his tactical nous, needlessly giving away a corner or so we thought but no. Chris did it on purpose to draw Guisley out of defence so that Super Doug McClure could hit Guisley with a fantastic counter.

I had watched him play at Woking quite a few times and if I am honest he didn't stand out there as someone I wished we had but watching him yesterday he looks a completely different player and whilst its early days I can certainly now see why Gary wanted him.

He had a couple of wayward passes when he first came on but once he had settled his work rate, reading of the game and his passing were spot on and the cross for the last goal after a perfect run with the ball was sublime.

Good post Richard, but what worries me is the line - watched him play at Woking quite a few times

To be honest I didn't think a lot of him in the first half, with most of his passes going backwards, playing it very safe. Understandable under the circumstances, his first full game.
I don't know what was said in the dressing room at half time, but in the second half we saw a more adventurous player.
A good cross was rewarded with an assist for one of the goals. With confidence and establishing himself in the squad, he could be a valuable asset.
