Might as well have a thread on him.

Thoughts?

Good signing?

Or another uninspired, lazy piece of recruitment?

Good signing depending on price not the most creative of signings but I'm not sure given how shite our midfield is that's a bad thing. We need to know what we are getting to an extent and I think we can at least say this guy has been scouted to death

On paper I'd say a good signing, completely different player to what we have, athletic, tall, powerful... Should just slot straight in and make a substantial difference.

Yes the fee and wages for his age isn't what we were hoping for as a long term vision, but I think it's the one area of the pitch we need instant impact.

He's not world class but if he compliments Allen that area of the pitch gets an almighty upgrade of quality.

Gotta trust Carlo, he clearly thinks he’ll add something and you’ve got the bonus of prem ready

Don't really fancy him in a 2 but think a 3 of him Allan and Gomes would be pretty solid. Not massively creative but could work in a similar way to Liverpool's midfield.

I’d like a 3, but I reckon those two will pretty much cement the 442.

Depends on whether Ancelotti was playing 442 out of necessity or choice, I guess.

I think DCL - Richarlison is such a good combo when we don't have a 20+ goal scorer that we'll still be 4-4-2 next season.

Personally I'm not a fan of it, but I get the logic when your most dangerous asset is those two up top together.

A bit of both, I reckon.

It seems to be his preferred default formation, anyway, (According to what he said to Carragher) and seeing Ferguson make us more solid whilst also getting our two most threatening players in the box more, it was an easy decision for him to continue with it.

Perfectly ok with it.

More excited by seeing how he works with Allan more than the actual signing of him itself.

I like him and I think he will be very good for us.

If he does stick with 442 then I fear it'll end very badly. It doesn't give us anywhere near enough control of the game and limits creativity. If we get a winger in then it'll set up for the 4-3-3 perfectly.

I'm happy with this signing, he and Allan are what we need, both powerfull and get the ball back and always go forward.

It won’t end badly because Carlo is a world class manager and if it starts to go tits up due to the formation, he’ll change it.

uninspired lazy and a good signing. looked great whenever ive seen him, not too many games mind. I dont get this thinking that we are set to play 442, because carlos italian maybe. Especially the early games the shape was changing a bit. Dont think we will have a predictable same shape every week type team, once he has got the right players in.
