A player who has split opinion in his first few outings for the club, Maxime Biamou has played an effective role in the side at times, but needs to start making a more tangible impact in the creating and scoring of chances to justify his place in the side. After some fairly mediocre first appearances for the club, Biamou has slowly become more effective as a target-man and forced his way into a regular role in the side. While he also looks to have an element of mobility in his play, his finishing has been sub-par and we can’t afford to carry a non goal-scoring striker in our ranks with our current poor form in front of goal.
Biamou showed against Swindon especially that he can create his own chances and get into good goalscoring positions, however, the technique in his finishing appears to be quite poor and he looks more likely to score with his head than his feet. Nonetheless, Biamou has done just enough in his time at the club to justify the decision to favour him in the forward ranks over Kwame Thomas, however, the debate between the two isn’t quite resolved and if Biamou doesn’t start getting the odd goal, there will still be a question of why Robins isn’t giving an opportunity to a striker who’s shown he can score goals for us.
