He's where Wayne was when he played for Everton as a lad, One of the first names on the teamsheet for me and the more he plays the better he gets imo
Very much so :tup:

I consider him as a starter, he wont have the stamina of a senior but he is well on the way.

He is the most direct forward we currently have at the club and the potential is there for him and Greenwood to forge a brilliant partnership in the seasons ahead
The challenge will be keeping Greenwood involved this season, especially as it looks like we will bring in a striker

Greenwood for me more an AMF, he'll end up a good CMF in the end I think. If he gets the same dead ball confidence he had in the 23's he's going to be gold...

I'm also in the camp of Joffy as a starter. He already has a very good goal involvement per minutes and that was without consistent starts/appearances. He has so much in his locker that I don't think he will get found out easily by defenders.

Greenwood not quite on Joffy's level for me, but I do see him getting some decent minutes next season with the 5-sub rule, and he looked like he fitted Marsch's system better than Bielsa's. As Ian said, would be great to see him and Joffy forge a partnership that builds for a few seasons.

Good move for him that. Still very young so will get valuable competitive minutes and clearly has a good future. I heard a rumour we were bringing in some young striker from Stoke, so I guess the club sees the U23 forward line as Mateo Joseph and the new kid incoming.

Raph going for £55m means we get less for him and KP than Villa got for Grealish; that answers the emulating Leicester question!!!

Leicester bought some good promising players; I'm not convinced by any of the three we have now. Hopefully, they will all be good signings and the club moves forward. I'm not convinced by Marsch either, he seems to think that he has a magic system in playing 4-2-2-2; it didn't work at Leipzig (they sacked him) and it didn't work for Ragnick either.

Up to now; I'm fearful for the new season. We're apparently struggling to sign our targets, perhaps I'm not the only one that's underwhelmed by our transfer activity.

Orta has been given too much influence for someone that has no history in professional football other than knowing lots of agents. He still can't sell Costa or Roberts ffs.
