    I would love a Laca replacement man. I’m just very wary of how the PL chews up most strikers and makes them look average as hell.

    These days you spend 30M+ on a striker and it doesn’t even guarantee they’ll be good. Haller has been benched by Antonio for example and Joelinton is awful.

    I get why West Ham spent that money on Haller but that Joelinton signing was always going to be an uphill battle. He only scored 7 goals in his 30 Bundesliga games the season Newcastle signed him, why was he worth £35-40m?

    Hope they also take a serious look at Nikola Vlasic at CSKA Moscow, think he is ready the return to the PL

    One plays in a farmer's league, the other is shaping up to be a premier player in one of the best leagues in the world...

    Which doesn’t invalidate anything I said. We’re not comparing which of the two is the better player here. Besides one can also make the argument that Bukayo is surrounded by teammates of far greater quality.

    Think Joelinton was meant to be a potential job but yeah. If you're only scoring 7 in the bundesliga you shouldn't even bother coming to the PL as a striker.:lol:

    Not many new ones who’d be worth buying really. There’s a lot of decent talents at Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth but they’re hardly new.

    Esteves at Reading is supposedly a world class RB talent but he’s on loan from Porto. Jozwiak is someone I’d heard a bit about over in Poland before he went to Derby this summer and seems he’s settled well.

    Also I’ve seen Tyrese Campbell play a couple of times for Shrewsbury and I’ll follow how he gets on at Stoke because I do see a potential PL player in him.

    Otherwise usual suspects like Mbuemo are the ones we should be tracking but there’s no one I’d really have on the same level as Eze, Bowen or Watkins last year.

    Must have been hard for you to see your boys Martinez, Grealish and Watkins take Liverpool to a course in football last week when Leno, Laca and Auba fell short on the same matter few days earlier.

    He said it would be a dream to play for Arsenal. Watch this space.

    Thing is he did play something resembling Firmino's role at Hoffenheim under Nagelsmann getting Kramaric and others into play as a hard working, technically sound and mobile yet physical pivot. Joelinton definitely isn't an out and out goalscoring type of CF as which he was bought by Newcastle.

    He's surely not on Firmino's level but along two more striker-like goalscoring wide forwards or in a two with a partner with more output he could very well still work out.

    I see, that makes a lot more sense.

    You attributed sausagepies flakiness to his age. I put forward Saka as an example of a player who was the same age but who was performing consistently in a much tougher league against more accomplished opponents.

    If age was the key variable in determining consistency of performance then Saka would also be flakey.

    Did you miss the part where I specifically said that young players develop at different rates.

    Was Cristiano Ronaldo as consistent at 19 as he was at 23-24?

    Mods can we re-open & move some of this to the Aouar thread? @American_Gooner @yousif_arsenal

    Reckon there is going to be a lot of post-mortem about our move for him this summer which might get lost in here.

    Also potentially a lot of January links..

    Not sure we will go back in for Aouar. It would have left a sour taste on our mouths when you consider his agent is his brother. Effectively we would be paying whatever agent fee directly to Aouar himself.

    Edu mentioned physicality alot in his interview and praised the speed of Willian. If we are looking to go for Edouard as a CF, then the next key signing is a cm who can play alongside Partey. Someone who can sit if Partey goes forward and someone who can attack when Partey sits. Is that Soboszlai?
