A) why no Niang?
He just moved to AC Milan this year, and they are a massive club as well... That trident of Balotelli, Niang and Shwaaray (sp??) is very young and good...
C) Hummels is another non-possibility ... why, $$$?
$$ and no CL... This guy is Barca or United bound... Honestly, I'd rather go after Howedes that is prob 1/2 his price and just as talented
I get all that and this makes a lot of sense. Especially with Hummels.
Hummels is touted around a lot. Given that I do not see him coming to us at this point of time. I really wish our fans start being realistic. We have been mid to lower-mid table for the recent past. It is not going to be easy for us to attract top talents. This is the rebuilding phase it is better we do not set ourselves ridiculous targets only to be disappointed when they do not materialize.
I understand we are in the rebuilding phase and it will take longer to get where we need to be. It's just I ready for that time, as I know many of you are as well, when we are able to through around those type of names and have a legitimate shot to land one if we so choose.
About Aubameyang. Just personal preference I like Jovetic better.
Yeah I understand and I like Jovetic better as well.
About Allesandrini being bigger/smaller than Gameiro. Stop nitpicking dude. I don't follow the Ligue 1, I saw Beast's video, liked the dude's technique and thought he looked like Gameiro in playing style but smaller. Hence "looks like" not "is".
Look I'm not really nitpicking as much as thinking aloud. Yeah I saw the vid and liked him as well but I like to keep it perspective with his size. One thing about the EPL IMO that is unique to me is how you have to couple size with technique. So I thought it was importnat to mention.
Also to further this thought ...
I really wish our fans start being realistic.
I understand this sentiment and to some extent agree but still this is just a message board where we can speak of our pipe dreams and wishes for what our club could be ... NO SHOULD BE. I understand the reality that we face but at the same time is it really too much for one to hope that there is a better place for the future, I say no it's not. Honestly I believe BR has moving in the right direction but I still await the time when we are mentioned, in the now, with the likes of ManUre, Citeh, BVB, Bayern, PSG, Inter, Milan, Juve, Barca & Real. When we are the threat everyone is watching out for and till those days are here I will yet to be satisfied, but that's just me & to each his own.
