Wolves loanee Francisco Trincao is now a number of months into his spell at the club.
He has started all but one of the seven Premier League matches so far, but his only goal has come in the EFL Cup thrashing of Nottingham Forest.
He arrived at Molineux with a big reputation, to some considerable excitement about what he can do.
Trincao has shown signs of what he can do on the ball, with flicks and tricks to get the crowd off their seats.
Goals and assists in the league are the next step, although his performances have been good enough to earn a call-up to the most recent Portugal squad.
There are signs of promise, and the international break has given Wolves fans a chance to take stock of what they’ve seen so far.
It’s fair to say they hope there’s more to come from the Portuguese wideman, who missed a really presentable chance against Newcastle on Saturday.
On Twitter, here’s what some supporters said about what Trincao has offered so far:
Got the talent and brain so no qualms with him. He’ll adapt to the intensity of PL football soon enough , we’re not even 10 games in. We have a bounty of treasure in those positions so no pressure on the lad. Patience.— Danny Rosamond (@DannyRosamond) October 6, 2021
7- poor game against Newcastle, but can drive at players and has lots of potential. Let’s not forget semedo had a slow start. So far a decent signing and only going to get better I believe— Mitchell Aspland (@MitchellAspland) October 5, 2021
The first 3games he was class but now has seemed to gone backwards no doubt he is a talent and can be great on the ball but lately he has lost the ball to the opposition on more than one occasion but give him time he will adapt there’s a few player’s struggling at the moment 7/10— Paul Somerset wolf⚽️🧡🖤⚘❤ (@WolfSomerset) October 6, 2021
6. Touch is lovely and he appears bright on the ball and eager to attack. Suboptimal strength, stamina, and shot/pass accuracy. Big fan though, you can’t teach what he’s got but you can train what he hasn’t got(yet). Can’t wait to see him with his boy Pedro— Aimless Balls (@btownley) October 5, 2021
Should’ve buried that chance on Saturday. If he had we’d probably have gone on to win 3 or 4 nil. Then the sentiment towards him would be a lot different! I think he’ll come good.— 💥 (@_dan__mar_) October 6, 2021
7:baller with huge potential but needs to ask traore for some bulking up advice.— n_wonderkid10😁🖤⚽ (@ndumiso60455997) October 5, 2021
Solid 7 but he’s missed some sitters needs more composure in front of goal— steven hudson (@stevenhudson2) October 6, 2021
Great at keeping the pressure on the opposition. Will only get better. Early days 7.— Adrian Pearson (@adrianpilok) October 6, 2021
Shades of Neto first season in need of a bulk up, definitely ability there— JAnderson (@Jandersonn94) October 5, 2021
Needs time to settle in,box office when he’s on the ball 👍🙂— Matt Osborne (@matthew8943) October 6, 2021
Lovely footballer, looks like he plays within himself and drifts in and out of games. Needs to push himself 👍— Bato (@batek81) October 6, 2021
12 months behind Neto but great prospect— Matthew Tonks (@11_tonks) October 5, 2021
