You clearly want to achieve something in Europe and don't mind getting experienced guys short-term, just like GS did one year ago, so that you could be even stronger in summer. Stop bitching. Honestly, were you expecting anything even remotely close to the quality of Sneijder and Drogba????
He's a better player than Bienvenu so it's a bit of an upgrade but nothing more. I don't mind it. Get players that can try and get us into that second spot in the league so we have a chance at CL next year.
He's a proven goalscorer so I think you can compare for the league. Thats what we're comparing him to. Provided he plays with Sow every game, I think every goal will come from him or Sow. But we shall have to see.
But of course he's not on Drogba's level. IMO solid transfer for the short term.
Selcuk was a starter when we did not have RM for the european games. And when Topal was injured. Who would Webo start over? If we play some sort of 4-4-2 then hopefully over Cristian. I doubt he'll be starting over Sow.
If you want a comparison think of this as Galatasaray's Necati transfer last season. He knows the league well and is a proven goalscorer even though he is old. If any of your forwards have goal-draughts he'll be there to help. It's a good short-term move imo.
The title explains it all and there many factors that prove this point:
1) Selling our top 2 players last season in Giuliano and Fernandao and replacing them two shitting Algerians in Benzia (1 goal in his last 50 games) and Slimani (2 goals in last 30 games).
2) Trying to kick out more...
