fair points. we do need to future proof also.
I just think there will be another coming along fairly soon that if we’re quick and smart can get him way ahead.
We could try gazump Benfica on their two Enzo replacements
Not really. What's special isn't just his football qualities. Others would still rather pay less for FDJ with that in mind.
Go watch him against Mexico. Argentina in disarray, a goal away from elimination, Scaloni chopping and changing on the go and on comes this kid and takes full control of the game.
In your lifetime you will see hundreds of players who can pass, shoot, press or tackle like this chap but you will see very few that can boss a big stakes game like that under immense pressure. You don't get that at Asda.
That's the main reason I think stats are only any use for scanning, not deciding.
If only the club had the balls to sign him before benfica did. that’s what we need to change.
In fairness, I'm not sure we could get a work permit. In any case, we would have said he needed to bulk up and go spend a year in the Championship.
Mind, for some time I got Verón vibes with him and haven't fully shaken that off.
