Nailed a few points there. Need to see haaland in a dry spell.I don't agree. Obviously I would love to get Haaland. But a player who ought to be average but isn't for some inexplicable reason is a dangerous thing. For whatever reason, he's never struggled. He's never been tested by a bad spell. He's a player who seems to do what he does through absolute self-confidence but he's never undergone the thing that tests the self-confidence of a striker - a serious dry spell.
So given the choice, even for the same price, I'd take Mbappe. Even though I'll grant you an out-and-out centre-forward is what we need most right at this moment. If you're choosing between potentially this generation's two star footballers, you choose the one who doesn't look inexplicable and too good to be true.
Do you remember Cisse when he signed for Newcastle in the january window a few years back? Everything he hit was going in. He hit a few worldies as well. Then season after that magical form disappeared and he ended up a so-so striker. My point being i want to see haaland over another season repeat what hes doing this season. Maybe he really is the real thing and he'll be banging in 30 goals a season for the rest of his career or maybe not. I have my doubts.
