I know we have more pressing immediate needs but getting this guy in would make me so much more excited about the future. 23 and under players: Sessegnon, Parrott, NDombele, GLC, Sanchez, Tanganga, Winks, Bergwijn
Still work to do but that is a immensely talented young group.
Janssen’s biggest problem is that he couldn’t even offer up “smart” football. He never knew how to create space for himself or others, or find pockets in the defense. Piatek seems to have that knack about him. At the very least he should be able to keep defenses honest.
Love the leaks by the club. They played it perfectly. Interest in Piatek at beginning of window, fans pissed off/non plussed, float Benteke/Luis/Willian Jose/other pretty shitty options, make everyone think “wow Piatek is actually a pretty good option!”, sign Piatek to more fanfare than if...
