not convinced. a gamble yea, but i felt we should be making signing that we can be more confident about. unless, we dont have the funds to do so.
I feel the same way, and I admit this may be a good gamble as a lot of teams want him. But our first signing in a summer we are supposedly going to be under new ownership is a Serie B striker? Not to mention we spent a big chunk of our transfer budget on attack just last summer. And we are supposed to be excited we took a gamble.

Strange... he must be an anomaly or something...
That's hardly any reason to suggest that he will follow that trend? It's Serie B and Saponara looked good before coming to us, how did that go?
