Everything anybody needs to know about Costa ^^

Ehm yes he can.

Using this to once again post the footballing brain that is His Highness Didi Hamann's pronouncements back in August : "Costa is overrated. He had a couple of good years for Atlético Madrid, but his

Don't want to be a party pooper, but he's a bit shit in the air. Launched like 30 balls to him (shouldn't have done so much of this in the first place, we should try to play out the back more) and he barely won any headers, like 2 or 3 at most.

Other than that, his hold-up play when played to feet was excellent and his passing was great, he has pretty great vision imo.

I wouldn't say he's shit, he isn't amazing at it though. If he's in the box he attacks a cross pretty well though.

Reminded me a little of Suarez the way hunted and harassed the defenders on Monday. Loved the way he chased nigh on every back pass to their keeper, not only that but he never gave their back-line a moments peace.

Can't wait to see more of him.

He could learn from Drogba.

His hold up play has been class so far. Nice to see that when we play it up to him, into his feet or wherever, he holds it up very well and brings others into play. We've lacked that in a striker in previous seasons. Eto'o was decent enough at doing it last season hence why he was preferred a lot of the time in the big games. But with Costa it looks like (fingers crossed) we've got that class striker we've been lacking.

Oscar looks like a Bale hybrid, Cesc is perfect true to his real self though
