Felt like he was a main striker with all the hype when we were signing him.

Being talked about all across the shop - CF, winger, #10

I liked how he and Rooney switched sides against Sevilla - he seems to have good movement.

And with him and DCL I do feel we have pace upfront - not absolutely electric - but not too shabby either.

How would you play him?


Also - bonus question:

When is he back from injury?

Bonus answer - last Sunday?

Ha! Thanks

I missed that game and there wasn't a player ratings thread so I sort of missed the comeback (I was at TWO weddings that weekend - madness!)

I'm sure I've seen glimpses of a potentially great player for us here - movement, pace, fast feet, control.

I'm convinced that getting a run in the side will allow him to adjust and then blossom into the PL.

Am I fooling myself here - does anyone else see it?

I think the main issue with Sandro (and our other attackers is)

We are set up way to deep. The attackers the midfielders (sometimes the defense as well) all play on top of each other.




But he hasn't shown much yet but I still rate him for some reason. What I'm asking is do people think he'll be good in this league or am I kidding myself?

The least technical player ever produced from La Masia

You see the bits that make me think he will come good is how good he has been technically.

There have been a couple of times carrying the ball forward he has moved it from left to right foot with such speed and grace that I've been desperate to see more of him.

Let's give him a run alongside DCL. If it was me I'd tell him he's in for the next 6 games but if he doesn't show enough then he'll have hard work to force his way back in again.

If he did play on Sunday...

And he did bag a brace and have a stormer...

It would be the birth of a legend and it would all be back on again.

Swap deal?

Just practicing to be a journo -

Ronaldo off form
+
Sandro wanting to go to Spain
+
Quick Maths!

Doesnít score many for WBA tbh itís a fair shout, they donít particularly make chances for him tho.

His hold up play is one of the best in the league tho, heíd be great as a 6 foot firminho basically. Get rooney Lookman Henry sig etc. all playing off and around him.

If we're gonna spend money on a striker then I want a striker who scores goals first, holds up well second.

Cash money on a striker who doesn't score just isn't what we need to be doing right now.

Rondon is a big no for me.
