Do you mean on the pitch, or in the way that they do business?
Quite. He looks fairly impressive but that is a lot and he’ll need to hit the ground running too if they’re to avoid relegation.
well I like the idea of someone who takes corners /free kicks that are actually good enough for someone to score from
Sarr will refuse to play in the Championship, as will Dennis or Pedro
Who is Alexis and why do we need to know about her gymnastic abilities?
I think it's worth adding that Zinckernagel was another supposed set-piece specialist who didn't seem it after joining.
And I thought Alexis was a stand up guy . Very disappointing
I think he looks an excellent talent. 8 goals and 3 assists in just 867 minutes.
Not sure he's what Newcastle need right now, but I think the fee seems justified and would still be a bit of a coup for Newcastle. If he doesn't join them now then he's someone who I'd expect a club like Dortmund or Atletico to take a punt on for the money in not too long.
I can't say I've seen him play so can't really pass judgement - his numbers are impressive so far but only 867 mins of Ligue 1 football is still a big punt for 30m! Also looking at his stats, Statsbomb says he's scored his goals from only 4.12 xG (1 penalty) - obviously it's a small sample size but this seems a big difference that would also make me pretty hesitant about the fee. But again, I know nothing about him - he could be Mbappe-esque where everyone knew he was gonna be a top talent before he'd even played a senior game, which means 30m could also be a bargain!
Can't see why you'd refuse to play for a club that does business properly, tbh.
Will Hughes has gone from being a bit rubbish at set pieces with us, to suddenly being absolutely pinpoint for Palace, what on earth are we doing that's so wrong as a club? It's not as if we don't have big lads, but, for example, Sierralta has negative goals for us!
