I hope the scouts, for want of a better name, are keeping an eye on Stuttgart - due for the drop again this season. The problems lie mostly with the club hierarchy, as always, which means there is always a good player hidden in the mix who could be picked up for a song. In previous drops we could have picked up Rüdiger and Pavard for a song. Both went on to prove to be much better players than their presence at Stuttgart suggested. I suspect Sosa might be this year's bargain.
You recommended Sancho so highly that I thought he'd be the next Ronaldo. He's been the next Daniel James. Even in Dortmund I couldn't see what was so good about Sancho although I only watched a handful of games. So I was only worried about the jinx at the time and I couldn't comment about his qualities on the pitch. So yes, I'm skeptical of your new recommendation ie Sosa.
But I agree with your sentiment that we shouldn't go established and buy too few players.
Here's what I actually said dozer:
"...meanwhile, back on the subject of transfers, I too am not convinced that Sancho is a must. I'd rather see us concentrating on LB, RB, DMF and cover for Fernandes.
I'd be a lot more interested in bringing in Julian Brandt, at €40 million, who can play right across the midfield and would both cover and compliment Fernandes. Would then leave us with decent money to fix our other frailties.
Mind you dozer won't like another Dortmund player..."
Hardly a ringing endorsement for Sancho ,dozer, but not like you to let the truth get in the way of a wumming, is it...?
