I've watched him plenty. 5 years ago? Sure. I'd take him in a heartbeat, as he was once a good playerFitness is a question yes.
But rigid and one dimensional? Clearly you haven’t watched him. His off the ball movement and running the channels is great. He’s also played wing lots. So rigid and one dimensional he is not
I just don't hold any hope at all for him at this point in time. Let's not kid ourselves here: He's 33 years old and coming back off two injury plagued seasons in the low intensity farmers league, whilst not playing football for 7 months; (in the mean time contracting Covid and legging it back to Uruguay to work on a farm whilst contemplating retirement as no team of worth wanted anything to do with him -- until Ed and co came riding in to try to salvage our shitty transfer window).
He's not going to be "running channels" or hitting the ground running any time soon in the high intensity physically demanding premier league. If at all.
Abysmal signing, and typifies our club of the past few years, really. Cavani and his agent must be high fiving and slapping their cocks at the number they've pulled on us.
