So a bounce like that, if it happened, would only move Rice up to Fred's level. So why are we buying him if we already have a player who's as good as him?Rodrigo played around 55 passes per game at Atletico, now he plays 75-80 passes per game. Did he improve or the team he plays for made the difference?
Rodri went from a defensive team to a possession monster team which would explain his bump in stats. I don't think there is a comparable difference between us and West Ham in terms of possession, so Rice wouldn't get the necessary bump to come up to Fred's level.
