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?

Tell him to score goals and if that does not happen get shut.

Very promising player who I hope gets up to speed with the team and communicating with some English ASAP. Doubt we'll know his best position for a good while yet.

A 2nd striker, that would play very well off a muscular target man striker, like a Giroud, Das Boot, Dzjeko, etc.... if we had fecking got one ;).

I guess we should play him, Rooney and DCL together, so we have options. He has got a bit of pace, so with him and DCL we shouldnt be pushed right back down the pitch as we have been against better clubs, but unless he is given a run of games, we wont quite know what to expect.

--------- Pickford

RB --- CB --- CB --- LB

--- Gana -- Schneids

------- Sig'n ------------

Rooney --------- Sandro
---------- DCL -----------


You would expect Sandro to be running all over the place, pulling defenders everywhere, whilst DCL does a similar thing but is more of a focal point and Sigurdsson and Rooney are running the show just behind them, whilst Gana and Schniederlin shield but also try and pick out runs. That is assuming we arent as static as we have been. With Coleman back in a few weeks, and assuming we keep our core players fit, we actually have a decent side - but we need to do a lot more training of movement, passes into space, coming for and receiving the ball - we need a much faster paced, dynamic play style, much like the second half of the 2nd game against Rumbelows in Europa when Sandro came off the bench, more urgency from mid to top. The good thing about fucking up getting a striker this window, is that we can now (you would think/hope) carefully and meticulously find the right man, and do a deal for a top striker that would fit right in, early in January. Hopefully.

Positivity!

The best player I have ever seen.  Try to keep up!

In all seriousness, he seems like he plays best alongside Rooney where they both can move around interchangeably.  Would like to see him more in the lone striker role up top when DCL is getting a breather, as well.

His interchangeability will be key I think, once he's up to speed he should be able to switch across the front line. Don't think he can play up front on his own from what we've seen, at least not against teams who will limit our chances and leave him isolated. Maybe he'll get better at that with time though.

I think the hope is - and I will be super annoyed if not the case - we didn't set him back by foolishly throwing him on the pitch unfit at Stamford Bridge.

Spurs at home, rested, is a very winnable match.  But we need a fit Sandro to do so.

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!)

1) You really didn't miss much. ESPNFC gave every starter a 5, our madman Mo a 6, DCL a 7 (their Everton correspondent is properly in love with DCL).  It was fucking dire.

2) Stop having so many friends, FFS.  Or have friends with the courtesy to get married on international breaks.
