Just practicing to be a journo - Ronaldo off form+Sandro wanting to go to Spain+Quick Maths!
Sam Allardyce revealed Sandro Ramirez has found it difficult settling into life at Everton, but is hopeful the forward will find his feet at Goodison Park."Sandro hasnt settled in that well, according to the staff," said Allardyce."We would hope he would make an impact down the line.
one canīt help but wonder if his football is bad because he hasnīt settled or if he hasnīt settled because his football is bad. we should give him every opportunity to help him either way. fellaini was dog shit for the firt 2 or 3 years at everton (maybe dog shit is a bit over the top haha) but he came good and became one of our best players. would love him back tbh.
Didn't Felli get 10-12 goals in his first season?
something like thatwhich is also the counter argument to DCL - even when first signed Lukaku was poor in many aspects of his play but still bagged 20 for us. not saying Sandro can't eventually work out but it doesn't seem very likely at the moment does it?
Lukaku is still poor at things, some of which will never change. Doesn't stop him being boss. You can't be poor and score loads of goals, It just makes said player a goal scorer. Felli obviously matured as a player and got better, but was in no means shit when we signed him, he was just different. Mainly because we played him up where he couldn't effect the game as much.
I do think fellaini is a fairly poor comparison - I actually do remember him being pretty bad in the first few appearances but he did always have that tactical reason to get included in a team - his size and ability to bring balls down from the air or flick it on, defend and attack on set pieces etc.I really struggle to see what tactical advantage (size, pace, engine, aerial ability) that Sandro offers at this moment in time which makes a very strong case for him being included in the starting XI to counter his shortcomings so it seems so unlikely that he will get time in the 1st team to play his way into some form. he just doesn't seem strong enough at any one thing to make a case for playing him and dealing with the time required to get him up to speed
First few appearances mean fuck all, being 21 and coming from Belgium to the Prem is a big step up, I gave him time to adjust before I judged him. He was wasted up front, but he still used the natural attributes to be one of our main contributors that season. For that reason, I can't call him poor. Totally agree with the Sandro point though. For the style we're starting to play, DCL is much more suited to it. I do think Sandro could be a player, but it's the wrong time for him.
