Haaland is overrated and people will soon see this.
Yup. The football world is clueless. @lenny_1248 and @Eplel are way more knowledgeable than top scouts and DoFs.You can't make an accurate comparison here, but I guarantee you that if Mason played in the Bundesliga he'd easily have 30+ goals/season too.
Some players take more time to mature into their roles. If I remember correctly RVP also started his career as a wide forward then slowly transitioning to a CF in his mid 20's before become the goal machine we all know and love.for all Greenwoods promise as a striker he has impressed me more playing out wide so far
I'm not convinced striker is his best position yet..
I would definitely want both at the club, no question
Or in other words, out of 5 things I would look for a CF, he is only good in one of those. Maybe in future he could developed more, but right now he is lacking abit for such role.Greenwood's knack for shooting probably means he will be best suited to a CF in the long run but he needs to learn more about general positioning, creating space, dragging defenders and anticipating where the ball is going to be to become more of a poacher. I think Cavani showed exactly how its done and will be a great player for greenwood to learn from.
But yeah its Haaland all day. All the attributes to be a world class striker and you'd nearly sign him just to stop him going to City or Chelsea.
Peak Greenwood (If expectations are met) is Robin Van Persie.Do we really need Haaland when we have Greenwood ?
If Haaland signs, that definitely will hinder Mason's development . No, I don't agree that he can play on right. He will need games as a striker and not as a winger.
Haaland is 21 and Mason is 20.
Haaland scored 13 goals in Bundesliga at the age of 19 while Mason scored 7 in EPL at the age of 19.
Haaland doubled his tally to 27 Bundesliga goals at the age of 20. Let's see how will Mason fare this season.
Just to put things into context, Kane scored 21 epl goals at the age of 21.
So if Greenwood is a superstar in making, he need games as CF and that won't happen with Haaland signing.
What do you think ?
Mods - can you add a poll ? @Damien
If Greenwood played CF every game would he score 25 goals playing for Bayern or Dortmund in the coming season?
I don't think it would be a stretch to say YES tbh
To be fair, the detail that enthralls people the most, as far as the raw numbers are concerned, isn't just that Håland scored over 25 goals in the Bundesliga last season at rate of a goal every 89 minutes (a noteworthy accomplishment that is being diminished all too easily); but that he scored 20 total goals in the Champions League over the course of 14 matches (for context, Lewandowski scored 15 goals in 10 matches in his best ever season in 2019—20) before reaching his 21st birthday. No young striker, even the great prodigies of yesteryear, had done what he managed to do in the the most celebrated club tournament on a statistical level — ever, and not just in a specific era — that rewriting of history books in logic-defying manner is what makes him a bit extraordinary.You can't make an accurate comparison here, but I guarantee you that if Mason played in the Bundesliga he'd easily have 30+ goals/season too.
