First of all, enjoyed it tonight. 

Secondly its been so long since Hooper has been around the side I had forgotten what a truly brilliant footballer he is. Such a shame he’s always injured

Thought exactly the game 

 

His first touch and movement is ridiculous. A pleasure to watch in that second half 

 

And now we know why we’ve never had options from throw-ins, because hooperman has been out!

He’s going to make a lot of money from walking football when he retires

The boy is absolute class anyone who isn’t interested about football can tell how good he is

 

that touch to control before Matias second goal and the ball through to Boyd 

 

everyone of his touches is class class he keeps the ball so well and opens teams up 

 

can you imagine if we had pace down each wing and hooper opening those gaps

 

great to see Lazaar back can’t wait to see Aaron’s back and bannan so we can get reach back out wide

 

i think Bruce is going to make us real contenders next year

 

we need to keep hooper our best player by a country mile and we have good players

Agree with every word 

 

Hooper will be signed on, I’ve absolutely no doubt about that. Aarons on a season long loan plus a few shrewd additions 

 

We’d challenge the top 2

Hooper's ball retention is far and away better than any other forward in the club.

He’s a top striker at this level. Would love us to keep him if the deal suits us.

And yet people still think pay as you play is appealing to him...

Absolutely immense

 

Knows what ball to play before it’s even at his feet 

 

Immense when watching him in comparison to Matias, Joao etc who just bumble around on the ball

Imagine if he had been fit all season. Such a clever player. It’s going to be a very tough decision at the end of the season on his future.

He's already one or two steps ahead of the opposition. 

 

He's a joy to watch.

 

So torn on whether we could/should keep hold.

 

If you could somehow guarantee his match fitness it would be a no brainer. 

 

Bruce clearly rates him very highly.

Clearly not match fit but his play over the last 2 games given he’s been out for nearly 18 months is quite outrageous. What a supremely gifted footballer!

I like Hooper but reading the comments here you'd think he's bloody Marco van Basten

 

Thought we faded as an attacking force when he replaced Fletcher tbh

Nothing to do with us going into first gear then? 

 

Obviously stopped moving forward in the final 20/15 - kept possession.

I'm not Interested in taking risks with injury prone players anymore we need quality players who can play out a full season ...but I'd take a risk with Hooper we kno hes going to get injured but hes just class in the games he actually plays

Not really, I thought he was fairly sloppy in possession when he came on.  Gave the ball away a few times under very little pressure.

 

Not saying he's a bad player, just surprised that there's a thread praising his contribution when he was pretty average at best in his cameo?

Hooper is one of those few players who's class will show through even if he loses a yard worth another chance I feel , we won't regret if his injuries are over
