Victor Moses - "Incredible Raw Talent"

After Victor's Drogba-Esq header against Shaktar in the Champions League, he has been the name on many football fan's lips, everyone has had their say about what they think of our £9m man. Although arguably none know him better than his former manager Roberto Martinez, who heaped praise upon the Nigerian international. Martinez said that ex-England boss Fabio Capello made a huge blunder in not persuading Moses to pledge his future to the England national team, then going on to explain why he is such a great talent;
Victor is a quite unique player. When you work with him you realise he is not a normal footballer, not a typical modern winger... He is an old-fashioned type of winger, with incredible raw talent that allows him to go past people. He brings real penetration to the wide positions. Teams are so well set-up tactically these days that you need players who can bring something different, and they don’t appear that often... Victor is that type, though. Even if you look at the great footballing cultures, like Spain and Holland, you see that players of this type are very rare. Victor could have been a real weapon for any team in world football.
I have to say that from what i have seen of Moses so far, i have been very impressed, he is good in the air (all 3 of his Chelsea goals have come from headers), he is direct, strong, pacey, loves to beat his man and is not afraid to pull the trigger. It is refreshing to see a player like him, just as Martinez said; the old fashioned winger is a rarity in modern football. He offers us something completely different from Mazacar and the variety we now have in the squad excluding centre forward is fantastic!
So Chelsea fans, what is your impression of our Nigerian youngster so far?
Looking like a good signing?
Too early to tell?
Or do you think he has been ineffective?
