We can't fault anything he's done from the training aspect. It has been very difficult for Helder, he is still learning the game here and he has found some parts of our game hard - the time you have on the ball is different from the league he came from.
It would be wrong to say he hasn't found it tough. The area where he has perhaps found it more difficult is the fact that we have four strikers and if any of them had been injured for a period of time it would have given Helder the amount of games he needed to get through the settling period.
With the way things went, we tended to go with the tried and trusted, but there is certainly a lot more to come from Helder and his ability hasn't been questioned here.
