I'm pretty certain Acerbi will do better as an emergency backup than any of our Primavera CBs.My point is that almost every player can play decently 2-3 games. During the banter era we threw kids like Benassi, JJ, Gnoukuri etc. In the long stretch, most of them were trash, but every one of them had their good moments. Here we speak for 2-5 games per season. Acerbi is an old, expired and slow fart. You don't have any guarantee that he will do better in 1-2 matches than some motivated young player.
Then why are you so certain?Yeah I surely do not have as Acerbi hasn't played a single game for Inter.
Like I have no evidence that Messi would be better than Correa for us.
Because I don't trust any of our Primavera CBs are Serie A worthy. They are not Serie A proven, unlike Acerbi. Zaniolo was an anomaly and IMO cannot be use as some measuring stick.Then why are you so certain?
Unlike you, varmin provided you several arguments to support his hypothesis that a primavera kid might perform better than a veteran with a suspicious past.
But how many veterans have we signed that actually proved to be worthwhile? Didn't signing the likes of Rocchi, Forlan, Vidic, Palombo, Kolarov and etc, etc. provide enough evidence that it's risky too? Yes, I agree, relying on a primavera kid is risky as well, but it's a lot cheaper and you can always offload them easily with minimum effect on your budgetBecause I don't trust any of our Primavera CBs are Serie A worthy. They are not Serie A proven, unlike Acerbi. Zaniolo was an anomaly and IMO cannot be use as some measuring stick.
Re Zinho, he's a top talent with potential, but still there's just potential so far. Hasn't shown consistency, he's always injured. Let's hope he's injury-free this season so maybe he comes back next summer.
