When i was looking through this thread i saw your earlier comment and recognised that you haven't 'got' him yet.Think of all the plaudits Kante & Gana get for doing all of their little, crucial bits in between our D and the centre circle.Klaassen is the attacking equivilent inbetween the cenre circle and their D. The interceptions and pressing are the same for both roles. But where the defensive side are making tackles, Klaassen is looking to make a key pass. With a decent striker this lads assists will be quite high. The amount of times he 'sets up' an assister will be astronomical though. ALL of our play is going to be going through him.
Hopefullly, still backing him but definitely hard to pin down what his job is at the moment other than 'get involved'.
On his way to being my favourite player in the squad.
For me, I am not sure i mind if he is quiet all game long, as long as he provides the big passes when they matter. Too often, Barkley looks nice with the ball, but then is a big let down with the final pass - If Klaassen improves this and we sufficiently replace Lukaku then we will be in business.
He reminds me of a cross between Naismith and Pienaar.
I've not seen anybody as clever in possession with the ball since Pienaar. I think that's what gives me so much hope.
Nainaar?It almost sounds like a 200 mil player
