It would be inept if we didn’t improve on him this window (assuming we have money) Of course it wouldn’t be catastrophic. We wouldn’t go down. Our better players would continue to carry him. We’d still finish top half. Wed possibly even finish 7th. It wouldn’t be catastrophic if we didn’t sign anyone
I just don’t see how people can look at where he is now and think that’s not our biggest problem for next season.
He wouldn’t start games for a whole host of sides outside the top 6. So if we’ve got money he shouldn’t start for us next season either
You're badly underselling what he's giving at the moment. Massive massive part of this run of form has been his work up top and flexibility as a forward.
Don't think anybody in their right mind would turn their nose up at a dangerous striker coming in, but it's not a cumulative thing, if you add someone you take someone else out.
Richarlison is a dangerous forward who would get 15 if played up top all year, but the side can't function with him up top. Tosun is a very good finisher who will generally bury it if he gets a sniff, but he hasn't got the physical tools to trouble defences or give us a focal point.
Dom has given us a platform to build on both on and off the ball, and is good enough and flexible enough that if we had to go into next year with him as our main man we would be fine, with the potential upside that he looks to have more in the locker to come at only 22.
