Still looking to buy a striker in the summer


Image result for Kazaiah Sterling

Considering he has articles in the Huffingtom Post, I'm amazed that the author of American blog Playing for 90 suggests the addition of Kazaiah Sterling to first team training could change our transfer thinking. It won';t.

He is training with the first team to learn, nothing more. He isn't suddenly a first team player, just as Marcus Edwards isn't suddenly a first team player, he has been training with the senior squad all season, as has Cameron Carter-Vickers.

People do love toi go over the top. Josh Onomah has been training with the first team, Georges-Kevin N'Koudou has been training with the first team, Pau Lopez too. They are all young and all learning their craft, learning our system, their place in it and what everyone else's role is within it. That takes time.

Vincent Janssen may be young, but he is a Dutch international who has far more experience than Sterling, who has none at all. His inclusion won't change a thing, he is a player for the future and needs developing, we will still be looking to buy a striker in the summer.

  1. I have to disagree with you on this one Clive.
    Whatever the system we only play with one designated N°9 and very often he’s playing as a false N° 10 for parts of the match.
    Perhaps you are basing your view on Janssen being sold in which case then, yes, we will need another striker.
    I think that with the sale of Bentaleb and perhaps N’jie and Lamela also we would be in a position to purchase a player like Isco or maybe Rabiot.
    We talk about moving to next level and those two, Isco in particular, have the ability to play and find space between the lines, in other words influence the outcome of matches.
