I have watched Lucas for a very good four years. He is rapid short, and long sprints. He was the fastest at PSG, unless I have missed out someone. I was absolutely very pleasantly shocked and surprised when his price dropped a good 55% from the summer.

I don’t need to wait to find out, you lot can. Son officially nowhere near the pace of Moura!
To be honest I dont think Son is that quick. He just looks quick cos the rest of our squad is so slow.

But hes a good player

Its a squad game. We saw how Son and Moura coming from the bench won us the game at Palace. Our squad is starting to look stacked.

We just need maybe a CM backup for Dembele and we can compete on all fronts.

I was against signing Moura but he has been my MoM in the two games i've seen him in so far. I'd like to see him perform against a better team than Rochdale but lets hope he keeps proving me wrong.

Has everyone forgotten Son's goal against Liverpool when he put the afterburners on and sprinted half the pitch at ridiculous speed?

Was anyone else impressed with the balance of Moura, Son and Lamela behind Llorente?

They all had a bit of everything, they looked so dynamic.

Kane would have bagged a hat-full with service like that.

Out of the five AM's we have, my 1st picks would be Eriksen, Moura and Lamela.

People can sometimes really underestimate how much hard work off the ball the likes of Eriksen, Dele, Son and Lamela put in. Our AMs are the hardest working bunch in the league (along with Liverpool's). Moura needs to buy into that work ethic, and early signs are that he will, he just needs to learn the press patterns etc. As such I think it will be a little while before we see him start the bigger games

Out of interest why would you be against the signing?

I really couldn't care less who is quicker at standing start or full pace. I'm just gonna finally and fully appreciate the options that we now have.

Its gonna give them all a much needed boost because knowing that Moura is waiting in the wings, then Sonny and Lamela and to an extent Eriksen and Dele will all have to keep performing at a very high level.

Its fucking exciting

Moura Eriksen Dele Lamela

With Sess seriously wanted, and Malcom intimating in January he wanted us, I am not so sure which way the pendulum will swing on this one. If Fulham are not promoted, my money is on all out for Sess.

Thanks Herc.(y) Wasn't sure it was your ITK said about Malcom or not.
Wouldn't mind either, both young and seem to have good abilities. Can't see the need for both now unless we're thinking of letting somebody go.:eek:

So it’s definitely a case of one or the other in your opinion?

I cant see us going for Malcom now what with Bayern being mooted. Im not sure we even need him unless we are moving one of our attackers (Eg. Lamela) on in the summer. Sessegnon just sounds like our kind of transfer and the player wants to come.

To be honest, against 'defend for your lives' teams, that would work well IMO. Both Dele and Eriksen work hard enough, plus the others all drift inwards so we would not end up empty in the middle (often anyway).

Would like to see this against a top team, just to see what happens (not in a competitive match mind you).

Wish we could get both ad they'e going to be very different types of players. Sess will be more of a wide man who scores goals and just runs past people whereas Malcolm will be more technical where he can dribble past people in tight gaps and more creative with an occasion screamer in him. Guess it all comes down to who we see as more valuable to the team and our needs.

I think you need a DMF in there for the sake of balance to win the ball back, that lineup is very Sherwoody
