But all you are saying is that we strengthened and that is proved by the fact that they bought players. You are failing to assess whether on balance, with departing players, we were strengthened overall.
You're the one most upset about any slur about your lovechild Donk.
Didn't you read those stats about his play? Obviously not (:-.
I agree was exaggerating when I gave him 2 out of 10 for dribbling, passing, tackling, shooting, creativity.........and he deserves 11 out of 10 for chasing shadows.
Have you seen his stats? They are terrible.
And when I think of attributes, I struggle..............
Tackling 2/10 (can never get close enough)
Shooting 2/10 (has duck feet)
Running with the ball 1/10 (no chance ever)
Creative passing 2/10 (90% of passes are 2 yards...
Sorry Stu I don’t like feeling unhappy with players but Donk for me plays 1 good game in 10. And the other 9 he is absolutely dire.
Of course we might still get worse, but Neves would benefit so much by having more bite mobility but with someone who can pass and play around him too.
I do think Neves would be so much better and more creative with Palhinha in midfield.
I don’t understand why he is being perceived as a direct replacement for Neves? They are very different midfielders.
