He’s so desperate for a goal it’s been detrimental to his play each time I’ve watched him. Looks dramatic and selfish.

Just play Dane and the goals will come.

Got into two or three positions where a perfect final ball would've seen him score, that was good to see.

Has to start next game. Gave us the dynamism we needed, with wingers on both sides, that could go to the line.

Not sure how good he is and I doubt we'll find out against a team like City, but looks like he's best option for that position right now.

Have to give him a go, that front three that started today shouldn’t be seen again, Kulu has totally lost it.

50 something games hopefully next season I would say we will need at least three options to play up front. Why not Dane as one of them ?

Would have got a goal if Johnson wasn’t having one of his wayward games for crossing

He's a few games away from having a big impact. Just give him consecutive minutes and let him have some confidence. Was good today, made our shape look better.

I've seen him sliding in forlornly at the far post a lot when he's got the chance to play but today I saw him offer himself up as a target man a couple of times which I haven't seen him do. One particular instance when Vic was struggling to find a way out and Dane made a run over towards the touchline, chested the ball down, and won the free kick, in a similar way to Kane.

Really want to see what he can do with more than a cameo.

Yea absolutely should be staying as our 3rd choice striker next season unless Veliz comes back and Scarlett goes on loan again.

Kulu was overated from the start. A few good moments made people overlook the limitations and poor things.
Nah, Kulu was great at the start.
He's been pretty poor for a while now though but you can't deny his initial impact.

If it me or are his feet quite slow? Might be an adaptation thing but I've thought whenever I've seen him play that he looked a very decent footballer but was lacking a bit of zip.

One of those fine-tuning things that improves with regular match time. The guy's lucky if he gets 10 minutes on the pitch a month. I really think next season is going to be big for him with whichever European competition we end up in and hopefully a better attempt at winning domestic cups.

I think we will see quite a rapid improvement in those technical aspects the more he plays.
