Had a purple patch then scored 2 between Jan and May I think it was. DCL scored more in the 2nd half of the season and many don't think he's good enough to lead the line.
I get he holds it up well and is a handful, but I'm not sure his goal output would make it a worthwhile signing. Despite Fulham being relegated he wouldn't be cheap... Just don't see this being a goer personally
Yeah, he got a bunch of headlines early in the season because he was getting goals and you saw a lot of lazy headlines having a go at Newcastle/Benetiz for letting him go because they were struggling to score...but I think he reverted to type a bit in the second half, also perhaps after PL defenders/managers had a second bite of working out how to play against him. I think he'd likely still be getting around the same low double figures goal return here.
I'd imagine his link up play would improve us beyond what DCL gives us, so yes the overall the team would likely be better, but I don't know that's enough of a reason. The good thing about him is that given he's 24, we'd likely still get a decent return on him if it didn't work out so well after a couple of years.
