Can't be any worse than Zapata can he?

Welcome and good luck!

Zapata was really strong last season, to be fair. If Duarte can pull of that kind of form for us, it'd be great.

That cameo has raised hopes for me. This guy just might be one of our best signings this summer.

You saw 30 minutes of him against Cesena in a friendly and you jump to the conclusion that he may be one of our best signings.

You need to chill out.

I have an insatiable tendency to extrapolate, Mr. M.

Other than one Zapata-esque brainfart, he did look good. Very comfortable on the ball and had a good passing range through their forwards to our midfield. But he doesn't look fast which is something our defence lacks without Theo (or Conti if he can recover defensively).

Primarily, I liked his confidence in coming out of defence as soon as he got the ball. Let's see him do that against pressing teams in Serie A.

I'll save my opinion for Duarte until I see him play more than 30 minutes.

This game he looked comfortable on the ball, in an official game he may look like Bambi on the ball. Let's just wait please.

It was 30 minutes, maybe he still needs more fitness or wasn't going at full speed (for a friendly, wouldn't surprise me) but he didn't seem any faster than Roma or Musa. Wait til he gets minutes in the league and we can judge then.

I liked his runs too, and he seemed at ease doing it. Thought that might be the reason we bought him?
I remember TS doing it often. It's probably more useful against defending teams, but it's still always nice option to have against anyone

^Yes, TS was great at it. It was a beautiful sight to see him leave the defense.

Looked like the second coming of TS to me. If he can show composure he has the physicality to rule Serie A.

My only expectation for him is to be better than Musacchio. That is all.
