Completely useless. Correa and Alexis have done much more in less time.

If we bought Džeko for €24M + swapped him with Barella + Perišić, then it would be on the same level as Ninja.

You have been repeating this for a while and this info is wrong. We paid 24m+Santon+Zaniolo for Ninja. Not 40m.

It was €38M. €40M is just an approximation. Plus I don't care about Santon.

Still a terrible deal regardless.

38m was only for (typical) fake accounting. You should care, Santon was weighted 9.5m in that deal.

We paid only 24m cash. Terrible deal indeed, but don't make it worse than it should be.
That makes sense. Still an awful deal.

I will edit my original comment, then.

I wish we could’ve got Zapata instead of this guy. How the fuck ouR 35 yo No.9 could miss those kind of chances at this level is fucking disgusting. The fact this guy is our No. 9 is a reflection on the current state of the club.

Yes, he played way to much without a break . it's understandable he gassed, beaten up and not as sharp, but to his credit he answers the call everytime unlike some others on the squad. Good on him shame on others.

You right, he play a lot and im sure he kinda gassed, but from 1 meter in front of the goal, evrey fif member would score that shit, you not even need to be football player to put the ball in the fucking net from that distance....

His shocking miss was like a carbon copy of his missed chance during his first season with Roma. Can't remember the oppositions.

I have a friend who used to work with disabled kids back when we were in university. The guy set up after-school and outdoor activities, including mini football, and one weekend he asked me to help him out as a favor. I did, and I ended up playing a game of soccer with these disabled kids, which was really nice.

Obviously my aim was not to nutmeg these fuckers and score 20 goals. My only goal was for them to have as much fun as possible, and to make them feel included. So I played one-two passes with them and kept the game flowing nicely, making sure to involve as many kids as possible. I gave them easy lofted crosses to head the ball and I set them up with lay-offs to shoot on goal while my friend played keeper. Everyone had a great time and we took them out for pizza afterwards.

What is the morale of this story? When you play against retards, like Genoa, Dzeko's attributes of "link up play" and "getting others more involved" looks great. We play free-flowing attacking football and everyone has a good time getting in on the action - even the most severely handicapped kids, like Lautaro.

However, against better opposition (which is pretty much everyone), or in Europe, it's just not enough. Dezko facilitates others but does not bring enough to the table himself. His speed is non-existent, his finishing is dismal and recently, even his dadstyle of football has been atrocious because he can't reliably control or direct a football anymore. Maybe he should attend one of these camps.

He's a true case for stats v reality.

During the match, I jumped his shit on that miss so I get that. As for every FiF member scoring, you haven't seen me play:proud:
