I agree with you but those 100m rumours are ridiculous. He is nowhere near europe proven except for serie a where 37 year old Toni score 22 goals. 


It's just the owner talking. I expect a £50m max to be enough to sign him. In regards to the score stat; Serie A isn't a walk in the park that some still believe to be the case.

  • 7 minute Hattrick today after his side going down 1-0 .. first player to reach 20 goals this season in Serie A. Has the tools to be successful in the Prem I believe. If Diego were to leave my definite vote for replacement.

I think this guy is a gamble we have to take. He looks like a poacher of the highest order.

I dont know enough about him to say whether I'd like him here or not.

But as far as buying a poacher/predator we already have one of the best in the world dont we? In a 1 striker system we need our backup to give us another option to goto.

So dont we need someone who will bring summet to us Diegos not the best at? Technique! His link ups, 1st touchs, holding the ball and not know when to pass,someone who can dribble thru players.

We need someone in the 1st team like this too alongside Eden/Diego.

I think the feeling is Diego won't be with us next season after this summer although recent talks look good. If we were to replace him Belotti is a very good option has very good hold up play can pass decently and more importantly attacks everything in the box on the ground and in the air.

I really dont see him going anywhere.

Would he work/be upgrade in RW? Cause way I see it Conte wont go with a 352 so I think he will go with someone like Llorente whether we like it or not. (He can score in the PL tho which is always good) So if we made a big upgrade on RW with more of a striker (yes I know Pedros good and direct) like Lukaku,Sanchez it would basically give us a 3 striker system all roaming and swapping places. Nobody would know who to mark.

If Diego was not already a Blue; if he and Belotti were just potential transfer targets, I'd choose Belotti for sure. For me the Italian is easily the more talented footballer. Since that's not the choice facing Antonio, since he, and we, know that Diego's talismanic personality adds massively to his overall contribution, the balance tips back towards Diego.

If our centre forward should choose to leave however, I'd be less unhappy about it than I might be if we get Belotti as the replacement.

If he should choose to leave however, I hope we'll look at Belotti as the replacement.

Thats interesting then

So even with him unproven in the PL and Diego is you would still go for him?

Ive looked around and cant see yhat hes been utilized as RW which I think wold be of more benifit to us if we are looking for a marqee trpe player but he does have good skills that would prob help us like being good in the air and strong defensively. Tho he seems to give away alot of fouls.

Could he play a free roaming RW like Eden does?

No, knowing what we do about Diego, I'd stick with him. If Diego was still at Atleti however, then, just on my assessment of their talent, I'd be more excited about the possibility of signing Belotti.

I agree with you that upgrading at RW is a higher priority but I don't see Belotti as being a good contributor in that role. In fact I think it'd be a waste putting him there. I don't think we need to change up top unless Diego himself chooses to go. If he does go then Belotti is the replacement I want.

he is definitely a poacher type but he is also excellent in the air. He wins a lot of duels and his determination is really high.

This fella is amazing and absolutely worth 100m, if Chokemann is on the same price.

Get this lad signed up Antonio! If Costa moves, this guy is our best bet.

Just curious, how many outstanding seasons has he had so far? I'm checking his stats throughout the years (not a lot because he's young) and this seems like his first truly worldie season. If that's the case then 100 mill, not to mention the ridiculous 130-150 mill being quoted by newspapers is laughable. You pay that kind of money only for players who have established themselves as more than one season wonders, bringing world class performances throughout a few years at least. If 100m is the new norm for up and coming players who haven't achieved anything and have everything to prove, then football has really turned to shit in terms of money. In a few years we'll be paying 1 billion for truly established wc players.

Bro, the future cannot be predicted. He could have a killer next season score thirty-plus goals and we'll think 'why the fuck wasn't he bought?' or he could score one goal and we'd think 'dodge a bullet here, lads!'. It's all a big gamble, no matter how proven or unproven a player is. Messi could flop, his leg could get kicked with his shin going two ways during the first minute of his debut.

We could look at his career on a whole and examine how he scores. Are all his goals impressive? Even when he only scored six for Palermo two years ago? Were they tap-ins created by players better than him? Who were they against? Home or away? Sub or start? Loss or win? Winning goal or meaningless add on? The context really adds to how we understand a player. I'd easily take a young player that scored six winning goals over another that just smacks them during 5-0 victories.

At least with proven players you know what you are gambling with. Investing over 100m, a large chunk of your budget on an unproven product is just reckless business. He's even not nearly that marketable to justify such money. Ridiculous prices being quoted and if it came through the market would be fucked for good.

Only three players in the world are marketable, the rest are literal nobodies. The market is already fucked and has been since the Gareth Bale transfer.

Okay, so I take it you would agree to pay 100 million or more for Belotti? Even if it meant we lose out on another player or two who would improve our squad? Not to mention the indirect consequences of making such purchases normal, like rising ticket prices for example.

It's not my choice on how the club makes transfers and I don't know much about the finances of the club, I think it's abhorrent that player contracts are sold to begin with. I don't go to games and if I did, I'd be more concerned about the ticket costs of flying to and staying in London over a few more £££ of gate prices.

I'd like to see evidence of the correlation between 'inflated transfer prices' and 'inflated ticket costs' because right now that is purely conjecture. I won't believe 'boogeyman' ramifications without evidence.

Too be honest, I can't give a damn on who the club spends it's money on. Not my money so.

 

But I do rate Belotti highly. Still young and has more potential than he's currently showing. This guy is going to be Italy's new #9 and I hope our new #9 who's actually succesfull with that number.
