Watching him everytime he tried to outrun the defenders was so fascinating, though we already know the end result would be.

Nice equalizer but oh my god what a horrible match by Dzeko.

It really feels he was so overused in the first part of the season that he's like done now. Mostly walked out there already in the first half. Half of the work Lautaro does goes in vain when Dzeko just fucking jogs there. And yeah, if he can't do more he can't do more.

But we need to start using Caicedo at some point. Dzeko played 90 mins today. So Caicedo is gonna start against Liverpool or what? Sanchez-Toro?

Also I see a trend of Džeko scoring from second chances and/or in the box. Just be there and do that, don't listen to Inzaghi, just keep doing that.

This is the big difference with Icardi situation - Icardi should've done more at times, because there were games, like against Barcelona, where he shown he could do more than just be a fox in the box. Džeko was surely overused for his age and he can't perform up front because he is basically coming for the ball almost every attack.

Is it just me but I have the feeling Dzeko is drifting out wide way to much all of the sudden in the last couple of games. Seems it's something Inzaghi told him to do?

Decent performance tonight. It is impressive he managed to find space to be fed by throughball while Lukaku and Lautaro never find any. He also links up well with our team. However he must have thrown out his shooting boots already and turning into the modern John Carew.

Imagine if we had someone a bit faster, we'd score 2-3 goals at least.

Did his best and he is a baller, just frustrating to watch in a majority of matches, until he scores :lol:

Wasn't bad, wasn't great. If only we could sub him for Correa... Their defense was ready to be cut wide open and Correa is the only player we have that would slice them up.

Hard to really fault him for anything. He's done what he was brought in to do and that's replace some of Lukaku's G/A.

We were always going to suffer gameplay wise because Dzeko could hardly move the last few years. Let alone now when Inzaghi has ran him into the ground.

Won't go too harsh on him, even he was our weak link today, but given he came here free, and overall he is a good tactical wise.

If Correa isn't injured, our budget play would be fine. I mean the saddest part was he got the ball and was heading for a 1 on 1 with the GK and Van Dirk just ran from behind and caught up, the only time he could make it was being offside.

He is just limited by his age now, and he offers the other strikers don't plus he will be good for 90% of our game, if rest properly.

yeah, because Lukaku would be worse in big matches
He and Lautaro were lethal last two seasons, they were complementing each other. Dzeko is just a walking tree who will get on your nerves whole 90 minutes

The biggest problem for me is that for a big guy, he can't be a target man anymore, because they hustle him off the ball too easily.

He is so slow and lethargic. He can't beat anyone, even when gets an head start.

Dont blame Dzeko cause your idol Loltaro is utter crap this season. Its pathetic that Loltaro is worse this season than 36 year old veteran striker. Loltaro should get the fuck out of this club,for big bucks. He needs to start scoring fkn goals,he is pathetic and he is shit.Dont blame fkn Dzeko.

And what little energy he actually does have, he wastes dropping down to help out in the build up only to fuck up simple passes and lose the ball very often.

I'm still a fan, he was a great option for free and he made up with his goals more than anyone expected. We just can't expect him to still be at the level needed for CL knockouts. No surprise there. The only thing I legit hated about his performance last night was when he had the ball on the left side of the box and attempted to pass instead of just volleying it. You could see his decision-making process unfolding in those 3 seconds, he wanted to shoot but he realized he doesn't have the explosiveness for it anymore. And the pass was difficult and unlikely yet he opted for it nonetheless. You can't be a striker playing the CL knockouts while lacking ruthlessness like that. If you have the ball in the box without anyone in front of you, fucking shoot.

Inzaghi should consider moving him higher up the pitch and become our main target. dude clearly is unable to sprint against the opponent defenders.

Well, its not stopping him from try beat his defenders time after time and get owned every fucking time, its like at age of 36 you supposed to know what you're weaker sides, but this guy just keep embarrassing himself while trying...
