Gimenez is pretty much an out-and-out number 9. With the usual disclaimers about buying CFs from the Dutch league, he looks very good IMO.I keep reading loads of shite about some lad called Giminez or something like that...
Apparently we're "leading the race" and all that bollocks...
Personally, I think we should be looking at someone older, with proven top level ability who can sit on the bench and deputise for Madders... imagine an old Luka Modric, Muller or fuck it, Messi, being wheeled out for 25/30 mins...
Yeah, you've got to pay serious wages and yeah there is zero resale... but if you got them for fuck all, and offered them a crack at a Prem title in a side that plays beautiful attacking football...?
Failing that, you have to take a punt and be willing to pay serious transfer fees and serious wages... with the risk they can't hack it in the Prem and end up in 5 Guys with N'dombele...!
Not to be even more alarmist but we've got a few players pushing the yellow card limit who could get suspended. Anyway, I never expected this year to be 'the year', Postie needs to build the squad and try out the 2nd tier players, and the young players, buy in some more and shift out the deadwood. We need to do reasonably well this year for team morale, but Europa League qualification would be enough for me, top 4 would be splendid but it wouldn't be the end of the world if it didn't happen. Some folks got a bit carried away with our fantastic start to the season, but it highlighted that the squad was weak, that can be fixed. Next year should be the good 'un!Not to be alarmist, but a couple more serious injuries, and we’ll be putting out teams of kids like Harry used to do in Europa League.
