Don't have one.
Look at scorers and assist table.
And you look at how many safe back passes he does during the game, how many times he dribbles past the opponent and actually plays progressive football and how fluid or not so fluid we look compared to the left side for example where di marco operates.

When a player does all these things I mentioned, then and only then I will look at his numbers. For me, the first thing is much more important if we want to get on another level as a team than a player's personal statistics.

All I’m saying we don’t have the money to adequately replace him. Unless we sell Carboni.

Our wingbacks don't need to dribble past their opponents. Only one from last season's team who can do that is basically Cuadrado and Buchanan. :D

Not having to and it not being a huge advantage are two different things though. That’s like saying wingers don’t need to be consistent goal scorers. Well sure they don’t have to be but when they are it’s a huge bonus.

Our team doesn’t appear to be lacking much these days in part due to the fact we have some great players in certain positions and Inzaghi’s system masks a lot of flaws. But don’t get it confused, we are sorely lacking pace and dribbling still. That’s why we brought Buchanan/Cuadrado and are now interested in Ndoye.

We are in the bottom percentile for dribbling in Europe, the fact we are still somehow in top percentile for chance creation makes us an anomaly. Purely down to Inzaghi. But I’m sure there’s a reason he wants some pacey dribblers too.

Sure, my point was it's not a huge issue which needs to be addressed as some kind of priority IMO. Of course having that ability would be nice.

Or he wanted 5?

Cause Ausilio said he wants to stay. So it would logically mean he will agree to proposal from the club. Which is lower than 5.
As I said.

Almost had an assist for Depay (didn't connect) and then Xavi Simons, which connected but Xavi didn't know what to do and fumbled the play eventually.

Dumfries lacks technical abilities, which makes him looks awkward and funny at times, but he is quite smart, and most of his movements are correct. Considering the injury or Buchanan, the best solution seems to get him a new contract.
