I Watched a few YouTube’s of him and found none scoring with his head and only two close range with his left. (Has anyone got vids of him scoring other than his right foot ?) - not being negative I see it as scope for development and improvement 

 Pace and directness are great, he will scare the crap out of defences

 

Leizpig posted a playlist of all his goals for them. Not a lot but there quite few headers in there. Seems to never miss penalties too, could be a pen taker for us if Jorginho isn't on the pitch for one reason or another.

I've been racking my brain to think who he plays like, Easy now, got it a Young AC Milan Shevchenko, 'The eastern Wind'

Prime Shevchenko was such a class player, gotta be one of the best I've ever seen

Sheva isnt a bad comparison, especially if you compare the partnership he had with bierhoff, and the way Werner has worked off poulson this season. Id sheva was a better finisher though. 

For the money we have paid, if he can have a simlar impact as Anelka it will be a great signing, if manages to replicate the numbers he has put up this season on a regular basis, he will be one of our best ever.

Reminds me that Torres when he first came to England, and probably a better player in terms of movement and finishing. We will need to be a bit more direct next season, expect those long passes from our own into the paths of speed machine like Werner and  Pullisic.

This here is key. To get the best out of him we can’t be passing it around in front of the opposition defence.

Would give anything for a prime Fabregas now.

Jorginho is can provide those sort of balls (look at the Tammy goal earlier this season) we just need players to make the runs which they rarely do.

He will be lethal on the counter if we could play those Cesc like long passes frequently after winning possession around our box. Expect VAR to have a field day with him, he's very smart timing his run against the last defender. For the second goal yesterday, he looked easily offside, yet by VAR he's about a foot behind the line, can't be an coincident if he does it every other weekend.

Trouble is we have loads of ball and teams usually set up to counter us, we need Werner to use his timing to beat the offside trap in the final third when it's tight and heavily defended with 10 behind the ball. Tammy is pretty handy on the counter, scored some great counter goals earlier in the season, but then dried up due to our high possession.

I see Werner starting games and being more capable of breaking through parked buses, then Tammy coming on as the counter attacking sub option later on when the opposition opens up more.
