    Eye for goal
    Good passing capability
    And an ability to run with the ball using both feet
    Remember his goal va United? what about the one vs city? 2 very different goals but showed his ability
    The guys still need to the league and has had loads of minor injuries that hamper his progress IMO
    And we have added more talent too to make it harder for players to get games

    Would agree, he has ability and i do believe he has shown that at times. Sadly for him he is another player who has struggled because of injurys.

    The timing of everything since he has signed cannot help

    It’s almost like we don’t need to give players time too when joining from a foreign league

    Worse thing a player can do is hit the ground running

    I think he surprised me at first and I can say I was impressed. Sadly it’s been too short lived!
    Sadly there seem to be messaging coming from Mourinho as Dele with similar recent history can not get a kick.

    He definitely had a reputation for being quick, I’m sure he pulled up on debut after an epic sprint and hasn’t looked the same since! He looks ok technically but also low on confidence, not helped by intermittent injuries.

    I think the main problem is getting regular game time. A good recent example of this is Dier. Jose stuck with him when most of us were baying at him but now he appears to be establishing himself on merit as our regular first choice CB. Not saying he's top drawer but the improvement from say three months ago is unmistakable. One difference is though, Dier did not have the level of competition for places that Bergwijn faces.

    Unfortunately for him, with the likes of Son and Bale ahead of him, plus Lamela and Moura also competing for the scraps, getting that regular game time is always going to be the main challenge. He needs to take whatever chances fall to him just to get a better look in.

    Recent podcasts are saying he has a groin issue, hence him not playing well and being sent back from International duty. Let's hope he can get fit soon (or swiftly go under the knife to sort it out).

    [[I still have memories of Darren Anderton struggling manfully on with huge groin issues and hernias, all the while getting slated for being a sicknote]]

    And averaging roughly the same amount of games as that warrior Roy Keane

    Good to see him on the pitch yesterday, he did well and was a threat when we broke.

    I thought that he had a very good game. He'd regained his pace too. I wonder if he has been carrying an injury this season

    he had it since last season when he was injured
    But his work rate was brilliant yesterday abs he is two footed like a lot of Dutch players so plays from both sides

    I am afraid I didn't see that at all. In fact in one foot race against Walker he looked positively slow. Yes Walker is fast, but Bergwyn made no impression on him. Lucas and Reggie made much better attempts - although they too fell short. Don't know what Bergwyn did for people to say he played well. He certainly played a good role defensively and put in a good shift for the team, but in attacking sense, I felt he was off the pace ( non-figuratively) which was epitomised by not getting his shot off quickly enough and allow the City player to get his body between him and the ball.

    I can only hope he is carrying an injury and that it clears up really quickly.

    You not see the goal Kane scored when he was offside

    I feel he has been surprised by how quick players in the premier league are. He does not look as quick as he looked in the Dutch league.
