I hold my hands up and admit I was one of those who thought Perez was a good signing. However for whatever reason it hasn't worked out yet. It would appear to be a confidence issue.
I agree that he links up well with Ricardo and Ricardo plays better when he is on the pitch but that is all he is bringing to the party at the moment.
Last night against Everton was as poor as I've seen him and as people have said we cannot afford to lose the ball so cheaply in key areas over the next 2 matches.
There is definitely a player in there somewhere but I'm not convinced we can take the chance trying to find it against Liverpool and Manchester City.
