Trying to think of emerging strikers across Europe. He’s clearly one. Who else is there?
I mean ones who all the elite clubs will be sniffing around, so not an Mbappe for example.
I love this guy’s variety of finishes. Reminds me of Fowler, Solskjaer and Hernández. Strikers who always found the right type of finish for the chance they’ve been given.

He's scoring goals with high degrees of difficulty and helps the squad in many ways. He's worth two Icardis, the drama queen poacher.

Jovic is anotger one. Werner could develop in that direction, too. Not really sure if there are more. Seems like top strikers are quickly becoming a rare asset.

He looks fecking deadly. Does he get on for Poland with Lewandowski? If those two clicked that would be a terrifying strike force.

Lewandowski hasn't really played much with Piątek yet, apart from the recent Nations League game against Portugal. You gotta remember there's also Milik in our forward department and he seems to have a good bond with Lewy, I have no idea how we're gonna throw Piątek into the mix now but in this form he should be a no-brainer

Apparently the guy just outscored Ibra in his debut season in Serie A with 17 goals :drool: Zlatan got 16, Shevchenko scored 24 and Tevez had 19

I'd seriously leave Lewandowski on the bench for a few games. I know it sounds like a bonkers opinion but ultimately he's a finisher and the chance creation between Bayern and Poland is miles apart. Piatek has shown he can score loads for a mediocre team so could be worth seeing how he looks in lone striker role.

I still don’t fully understand how he has gone from Cracovia to a top Serie A striker within less than 12 months.

How did Milan afford him and Paqueta? Aren't they low on money?

I'm a supporter of United but AC Milan has always been my second team in the world.

AC milan have always had my favourite strikers in the world until they went down - eff Higuain etc.

With Piatek i feel like something is coming back to AC Milan that I have been missing with that team since the likes of shevchenko, Crespo, Inzaghi & Ibrahimovic.

whats so special about the Ozil chant?
I was thinking the same. They should probably change the words, honestly.

"We've got Ozil, Mesut Ozil,
He's sitting up there in the stand!
He was Wengers man, doesn't fit Emery's plan,
But we still pay him a few hundred grand!"

Feck it.

How can a chant even be special if you can't fill your stadium to get people to sing it?

This guy is really riding a wave right now. It's great to see a proper striker in the game. No fancy build up nonsense, just give him the ball and stick it in the net :drool:

That chant is absolute fire also! love the way they incorporate his celebration so it's genuinely personnel, not just a generic chant. Bellissimo.

Scored again over the weekend. 27 goals in 30 appearances this season. Big part why Milan are currently 3rd in Serie A.

His instinct is really one of a kind. Always knows where to find himself in the box. Fantastic with both feet, really good with his head. Obviously I’m a bit biased (also because he won me a lot of money at the beginning of season when I was betting 50-100e every other week on him being anytime goalscorer :lol:) but I think he’ll have a great career in Italy and won’t be surprised if Juve come knocking this or next summer. Wasn’t sure if Milan will suit him, but he seems to have a great relation with the manager and his teammates, who all praise his character and work ethics. Lovely player, hope to see him doing as good for the national team too.

I really hope he doesn't go to Juve :D He's doing so well at Milan & seems to have such a good vibe with everyone that I hope he stays there for a while. Maybe in a few years he'll end up in Germany or Spain.
