I don't know who Agustin Alvarez is but... a CF who is 180 cm doesn't sound quite exciting. Although we do play better with a mobile striker upfront.

Anyone happens to watch the Uruguayan league?

from the article posted by @Hitchens

"Another of Alvarez’s best qualities is his heading. At 1.80m, he may not be the tallest but has shown himself to have a great aerial ability, timing and a fantastic leap"

and as @brk is saying and as i was saying yesterday, having a variety of strikers is the only smart way to go ... he seems (according to the article) be a nice combination of all type of strikers we would need. and with this (quote below) from the article, we can say (at least hope) he has the mental & psychological tools to materialize his potential

"Aside from his physical and technical attributes, Alvarez is said to be a very humble and dedicated professional who spends time studying his game carefully. Mature for his age having been a father at 16"

Come back stronger.

It's really tough to lose him for so long, one of our absolute best and most important players.

Father at 16 doesn’t sound very mature to me :D

You can be a milan fan and still not support white italian below average players.

Although grammatically redundant, the racial descriptor used here does elucidate something disappointing about you personally

The news on Kjaer's injury and recovery time has hit us all like a bombshell. He is probably our most important player and we didn't only lose a top class defender, we also lost a natural leader. We can all cry about it, but management will need to come up with a good solution. I don't know what Maldini's plans are, but we can't fill this gap with a merely talented player. We need someone that can fill the gap immediately. We certainly can't bet on Romagnoli and Gabbia for different reasons. Who can we realistically get?

Someone called for a striker with "a nice combination of all type of strikers we would need"?



Seriously though, that last sentence about his dedication will make Maldini swoon.

Get well soon my Chad :cry:

This sounds really bad.

Scamacca stayed at Sassuolo after they tried to offload him on loan w option to buy to Cagliari, then Verona which both fell through (25m)

They got Raspadori who was thought to fit their game better and if Scamacca plays Raspa is on the left, meaning players like Traore or Boga don't have as much playing time

Now they can sell him for 30m if they want to. Things change fast.

The RW problem is fixed. Signing an AM would be nice and I hope they do it, but our defensive department isn't "fine" for 6 months without Kjær.

A replacement is needed.
Its still better than Diaz AM.

I hope we sign this Agustin Alvarez in January, looks like an exciting option. Could be a diamond.
He looks like an good player and relatively cheap cause uruguyuan leauge

Allrounder (just his physique is holding him back..he would need ALOT of gym)

He looks good, but honestly seems like a total idiot. He doesn't seem to know that his actions has consequenses and if we do get him. I won't be surprised one bit if he turns out to be another snake later on down the road. Not a player I'd like for the long run, if he does become WC, you can bet your ass he will whore himself to Madrid
Oh definitely. He seems like the type who would use us as a stepping stone.
But honestly with age, i have stopped getting attached to players. So I would be fine with whatever he does in the future, as long he helps us win some trophies

again, you're not using the full picture. He has more tackles, aerial duels etc? yes he does.

Metz who are 19th in Ligue 1 average around 42% possession per game, they allow 3 goal creating actions per 90, almost 23 shot creating actions per 90 and have nearly the highest number of defensive actions in the defensive 3rd.

We on the other side average 54% possession, allow 1.6 goal creating actions per 90, 17 shot creating actions per 90.

see the difference? Metz are sitting deep, playing on counters and absorb the pressure for opponents which obviously mean their defenders do a lot more work then ours do. So those stats do not show the full picture. Metz are currently on -15 goal difference with 2nd worst team in terms of goals conceded (33 in 16 matches), I assume their defenders must be utter crap to concede 2.06 goals per game :)

Wants Belotti but not Scamacca...
Hardworking leader who’s a glutton for punishment, runs all game and is a die-hard milanista on a free or a 30m psycho with a prison neck tattoo with a dad that attempted to kill an agent.

He’s free and will be 28 in three weeks. What on earth are you people talking about, we all know it’s going to be Belotti and it will be amazing.

That's my thoughts exactly and that's why I didn't criticise Giroud. He really didn't get much service so far and when he did he either scored or got very close to scoring. Ibra on the other hand is missing easy chances
That's because Ibra puts himself in position to "miss easy chances". That's also a quality.

The type of forwards that lives only on service are useless, you could put Gazidis on top and he's score a couple eventually.

I don't know why you'd hold the dad thing against him, he's said many times he has no relation with his father and was raised by his mother+sister

What's wrong with tattoos lol

Arguably the best player ever is covered with them

It would be nice to have a talented and exciting striker outside of Ibra for once and not just grunts
