Victor Moses of Wigan Athletic goes round John Ruddy of Norwich City to score a goal during the Barclays Premier League match between Norwich City and Wigan Athletic at Carrow Road.
Well the fifth and final installment of the player who have had excellent season for Latics. And I am finishing up with our resident starlet, Victor Moses is of course a player that is under a lot of speculation and looks set to leave this summer as he won't sign a new contract. Or more his agent is advising him not to bother, rather stupidly.
Yet in his first full season Moses has down rather well in the Premier League. It took him a while to get into it, but once the winger got us to the status as the creative player in the team, then he fitted in and took the role on. In the end Moses finished up having scored six times and made six assists in 37 games.
It is a good return for a winger who still has a lot to learn, but is going in the right direction. His performances towards the end of the season have really lead the team on to the great form that we have been in. Most notably were his performances against Arsenal and Manchester United.
In both games in showed that he can play against the countries best and beat the defenders for pace and trickery. His audacious turn against Bacary Sagna was a truly inspired piece of skill, and will live long in the memory of many Latics fans.
But it could be said that in the final third his finishing could and should be improved. Too many times this season have we seen Victor beat everyone and do the hard part right, before missing from ten yards out or less. One example of this was against Liverpool where he ran about 40-yards, got into the Liverpool box one and one before shooting straight at Pepe Renia. Great run but no end product.
In the current system though, Moses was playing more a of a free role. Wandering around anywhere in the forward positions and interchanging with Di Santo and Maloney. It is that kind of free movement that allowed him to find the space and get into gaps between defenders. This was shown in the Newcastle game, where he managed to bag two goals by moving in and out of the space.
Only way is forward for the young player.
