SANDRO IS A F*KING STRIKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The only mistake Mosh made with Sandro was signing him too early, if we had left it till yesterday to buy him you will be in raptures!!
No need for that tone, you can discuss without coming across a complete dick.
Sandro from what I've seen of him is not an out and out striker, he comes deep to get the ball, he is a forward so will play across the front line. He is not someone who is going to stay in the box, there were a number of occasions in preseason where crosses were out into the box and he was standing on the edge of the area and not attacking the ball in the 6 yard box like a true cetnre forward does.
Also, if you look at his goals and chances from last season with Malaga, most were from long range or deep and were not typical centre forward goals, not many of goals were from getting in behind the defence like a true centre forward.
We did not replace Lukaku with a centre forward whos natural position is to play off the last man and to get in the box. Koeman has said we have needed this himself on numerous occasions this window and we haven't got it.
I'm sure we'll get by as we still have a very good squad, I'm also not saying that Sandro can't play there, he can and will probably get a decent amount of goals, but he obviously wasn't the intended solution.
But it is blatently clear that from Koeman's and the clubs point of view we have completely failed to get the a striker in that can play in the system that Koeman has built for over the summer.
