Puscas speculation.

by windermereROYAL » 10 Sep 2019 16:35

The guys only been here 5 bloody minutes but it doesn't take long for the social media pricks including JLow to piss on our bonfire with rumours we could lose him in January,
I don`t believe for one moment our owners would let him leave unless an absolutely huge offer of £25m+ came in, we pulled off a huge coup to get him through the door, it would be incredible if we release him from a 5 year contract after just 6 months.

Rant mode off.

If someone wants to buy one of our players based on 4 appearances for £25m then I would bite their hand off.

Market value obviously depends on his form and goals between now and January.

The cynic in me thinks the club might have had this in mind at the time of the deal.

As in they thought he might be quite good for us and other teams would be interested? Certainly is a change in thinking from recent past transfers I guess.

From what we've seen so far the guy is very good indeed.

Young, hungry. Almost too good for the champ and will be in a promotion chasing team at the least, if not a PL team with or without us I'd say if nto next season the season after.

So the way I see it we either get our shit together and manage to produce a promotion chasing team this or next year or he'll be off.

Obviously I would hope we can hang onto him till the end of his contract, but he's not going to hang around in a midtable champ side for the best years of his career.

I think we're all getting a bit carried away.

But it's win/win if he's actually great isn't it. He does well and takes us storming places. Or he does well and we sell him for a mint, reinvesting some in a replacement and managing black holes with the rest.

Otherwise known as what we should have been trying all along but abandoned.

Lol. I get how that sounded. I meant in the very short term. when we paid £x for a up and coming young striker for Inter, didn't anyone else think, 'WTF'? If the owners and Kia K knew there would be bigger clubs sniffing around very quickly if the player did well, then we should probably at least double our money, even if it is only six months later. If he took time to settle and had a very mediocre start, he's on a five year contract so he would have plenty of time to settle and improve.

What a difference a few weeks make. He looks totally useless at the moment.

Indeed.

Mass Sarr looked to be worth £25m after 30 mins.

We don't exactly try to play to his strengths, or give him a decent partner to work with. Or feed him much but scraps.

Exactly this

He’s obviously a quality player - his performances for Romania show that

Don't think his miss against Swansea was inexcusable either.

Bit of a loose ball on the up he had to snatch at, possibly a bit behind him.

Obviously you want it to go in and I expect if he was getting good service and we were playing well it would have done.

Multiple times yesterday there was space for him to make runs behind the Swansea defence...he didn’t move, barely gave the midfield an option, resulting in them losing the ball or going backwards.

It was a shocking performance from a striker at this level.

I think personally he might look better playing the lone striker role - that might play to his strengths

But if he’s dropped after that showing, he can’t complain

I agree he's clearly got more quality than he's showing, but I think you're both going too easy on him. We have created good chances for him against Charlton, Boro, Blackburn and Swansea and he hasn't been hitting the target. It's reasonable to expect more.

What I will say is that it's good that he's at least getting in the positions to score. And I think the answer to the conundrum is to show faith and get alongside him. Hopefully one will bounce in off his shin and then his confidence will return
