Messias 5 goals and 8 assists this season.
Again, I think he'll be a pleasant surprise and many pessimists will eat their words soon.
Not gonna lie, I was so so hyped for Faivre. It's not like I'm crying tears of joy for Messias now. But I don't get the hard opinions here since Messias, if it wasn't for... for what actually, his age? Coming from Crotone? Anyway. If he was a young talent from League 1 with the exact same numbers and statistics, I think everyone would be more than happy and okay with this signing.
Faivre -> 6g 5a in Ligue 1
Messias -> 9g 4a in Serie A
Yes, agree, Messias is 30, but that's exactly why he's here on loan, earning basically two times nothing. He's a very good stop-gap-solution with the exact characteristics we need until we get Faivre (or someone else) next time. Basically Tomori 2.0.
Why is everyone so low on humor all of a sudden?
Messias defensive output was really impressive last season. A lot better than Samu and even Saele. It skews a bit cause Crotone would sit deep a lot more than the average of Serie A and Messias would drop back in the midfield line to defend. But you can't fake those numbers, he's a hustler and he press like a mad man.
If James and Everton terminate their contract after the window is closed, is he still considered a free agent and can join us?
I agree on the AM matter, but I have spent almost half the night reading through people shitting on Messias.You know why. No other AM, Samu still here, no Faivre who everyone wanted.
I agree with whoever said a few posts ago that we have improved, but only depth wise. First XI is still reasonably the same if we look at it objectively. The main difference will be player growth. We already see players like Diaz, Tonali, even Krunic stepping up these last two games. That is a good sign. Continuity can go a long way.
we now have the 6th biggest wage bill in the league.
6th. less than lazio.
I believe so yes. I think we can register players a month after the mercato closes.
Why doesn't James and Everton want to continue together? Didn't he have a good season with them?
