Well we have a few!

Étienne Capoue - Probably our best signing - does everything you could ask for from a midfielder in terms of defensive and attacking work except score 9/10

Allan Nyom - Slotted in very well at full back and really suited to the league with his pace and power up and down the wing. 8/10

Sebastian Prödl - Started the season as 1st choice and performed well but got dropped and picked up an injury in October so not really played since. Solid back-up. 7/10

Miguel Britos - Came with the reputation as a bit of a hot head and it was a surprise when Flores picked him for Stoke away but not really looked back since. Your typical old fashioned defender. 7/10
Valon Behrami - Like Prodl started the season in the team and used his experience well but got a silly card and only been used as a sub since. Prone to the odd rash tackle but his experience is vital. 6/10

Nathan Aké - On loan from Chelsea and I believe is naturally a midfielder but fitted in very well at left back and looked like a good prospect for the future. Clearly models himself on Ruud Guilt with that hair! 8/10

José Manuel Jurado - A Flores favourite but seems to divide the fans a lot! Seems quite tidy on the ball and hard working but maybe not enough pace and seems to be poor in terms of passing. 6/10

Adlène Guedioura - Fans favourite from last season brought back to the club but not really played. 6/10

Steven Berghuis - Winger from the Netherlands - made the odd sub appearance but is probably too lightweight for the Premier league - still quite young though. 4/10

Giedrius Arlauskis - 2nd choice goalkeeper making one cup appearance and a sub appearance at Villa where by all account he did look rather shaky but that might have been nerves. -/10

José Holebas - Didn't seem that keen to come and wasn't somebody who really grew into the team spirit Flores has created so used on limited occasions but did well against Man City the other night. [B3/10[/B]

Alessandro Diamanti - Came on against Southampton - run around showing the odd nice touch but seems to be knackered pretty quickly and only seen twice since. 2/10

Víctor Ibarbo - Hardly featured and is going back to Italy this month, Waste of a loan. 0/10

Obbi Oularé - Young Belgian striker brought for the future. Been on the bench a few times but not played. -/10

A guid dram
Fair enough,

Bogdan: Decent in the cup, but when come into the league looked very nervy. Not good enough to be #1 (neither is Mignolet either).
Clyne: Excellent defensively when being attacked, not shown quite the same going forward as we'd all like, and he is tiny so an issue with crosses into the box.
Gomez: Shame he got injured as he was doing well early on.
Milner: About par really, plenty of endeavour but not enough quality consistenly. Have missed him the last few games though which says a lot about the side I suppose.
Origi: Slow start but was starting to grow into the side, but now is injured and we'll see how he gets on when back.
Ings: I wasn't his biggest fan when he signed, but I have to say I was wrong (yes it happens occassionally :p ). Showed great workrate and was dangerous every time he played, however he is out for the season as well - typical.
Firmino: Showed glimpses of his talent but nowhere near enough times. Poor tbh I have to say.
Benteke: Just about ok. Could do better on the workrate, and has lived off scraps in the box but still scored 7 goals. Still more to come from him.

Nothing
Jenkinson; Was really sound last season, wouldn't have minded paying up to £10m to keep him. Has had a terrible season so far though, and recently dropped for Tomkins. On loan though, so not a big splurge. 4/10

Obiang; Puts in a good shift, but not really an improvement on Noble yet. Not a bad player, but a decent squad addition. 5/10

Payet; Not even Tevez or DiCanio became cult heroes in this short a period of time. The type of player we've craved to watch at UP, and at a relative snip. 10/10

Ogbonna; Could be pretty good, has looked better than average, and is by no means a weak link. Not entirely sure if he's 2nd or 4th choice CB though, partly to how well Tomkins and Collins have done, but looks a decent buy and we've certainly needed the 4th CB. 7/10

Song; signed on loan with the knowledge he was injured til November, so can't really complain, but last season's early season form seems a distant memory and he can't seem to play more than one game a fortnight. Potentially a steal if he can get fit, but it's not looking likely right now. 5/10.

Randolph; Freebie reserve, actually did ok when in for Adrian for three games. Can't complain. 6/10

Antonio; Didn't get near the bench/eleven for ages, but with the injuries hitting he got a chance and he's grabbed it. Not an amazing player, but seems to perfectly fit the hustling direct pacey play of early this season. 7/10

Moses; Started brilliantly, faded a little, then got injured. Would like to sign permanently, but probably not at what Chelsea want. 7/10

Lanzini; Gradually gotten better and better. A worthy deputy for Payet in the middle where he's best, but did well out wide too. Really need to sign him permanently if there's a good set fee involved, or if bigger clubs come calling for Payet. 8/10

Hendrie; Don't think he's even made a Prem sub appearance, and when Cresswell was injured Ogbonna filled in at left back. N/A

Jelavic; Garbage. I thought he might be decent as a third choice central striker given Sakho/Carroll missing time, and I'm sure expectations weren't that high anyway, but he's really rubbish. Can't really run, doesn't get involved enough for his height, and in his one start vs Swansea was uttely toothless. 1/10.
