Paulo Dybala

Imagine you`re in Ausilio/Marotta`s shoes, would you offer Dybala a contract?

  • Yes - unlock defences and add value: creativity, individual brilliance, attacking outside the box

  • No - serious doubts about his fitness and contribution when it matters the most

For what it's worth, Lukaku/Lautaro/Dybala/Correa/Dzeko should be what's expected for a club like ours, and with the ambitions that we should have.

5 forwards for 2 positions is a healthy bench, not overkill, especially with Dzeko being able to play 5 minutes of actual quality and Correa dying for 75% of the season. Doubly relevant when thinking of the frankly insane schedule we'll have during the winter.

Haha that would be a ridiculous overkill.

The fact Moratti was running with similar-ish forward lines, doesn't mean it's normal, "healthy" or anything like that.

Strange how Dzeko being able to play 5mins of actual quality managed to score 17 goals last season. The recency bias of Dezko's horrible latter part of the season is strong.

Positivity is solely lacking in these forums.

Mum says chocolate isn't good for dogs, but you can have Peter Crouch.
Dude. The amount of lol. I wish I could thank you 1000 times.

To get Dybala we should offload Sanchez and one of Dzeko/Correa. The chances are slim.

So we think a 36 year old who hasn't played good football in 6 months is going to improve? How do we know he isn't simply finished?

I don't understand the "recency bias" argument. I'm grading someone on their overall body of work. Dzeko is one of the primary reasons we didn't win the Scudetto.

Own over lease any day, we'll regret missing this guy over Lukaku

Yeah. I'm happy Lukaku is back and it's fantastic work by us, but having Dybala is so important for CL games and just overall unlocking defenses. Something we tend to struggle with.

While at the same time he was one of primary reasons we were in the Scudetto race in the first place.

When it comes to improvement, Dzeko doesn't need to improve. It's enough that he's not used as the starter. He looked completely different at the first part of the season compared to the second. The reason for that he wasn't run to the ground yet in the first part.

It doesn't go like this that as an old player, the last months of last season is the absolute level you are. Specially if you've been playing as the starter for the most of the season.

Recency bias is pretty self explanatory.

No, we need to get rid of Dzeko plus Sanchez and get Dybala. Forget about scudetto and any succes in CL with current forwards. We need maestro who can feed LuLa, Hakan is not enough and Perisic is gone.

4 players for 2 positions is what we should have. 5 players are too much especially if this addition will cost 6 M per year with horrible fitness record plus inexorbitant agent fee.

Correa is redundant here, he's a poor mix of Sanchez and Dzeko. I mean he can run, dribble and is tall but the end result is pathetic. (both players mentioned prime were beasts, and even wasted and aged can be useful if minutage is dosed properly). With Lula and Dybala out attack would be top in my book.

But that's not gonna happen, only if we offload 2 attackers Dybala will come. Dybala would add class and improve our moment deciding in attack, something we lack for a long time.

Yep. Its funny that people(especially our coach and managment LOL) think that with Lukaku we solved our problems in attack. They easy forgot that we lost Perisic who can score,assist,create chances. Lukaku is upgrade over Dzeko,but we are not stronger in attack department cause we lost Perisic. We need Dybala from exact reason you wrote in your post,Sanchez and Dzeko are finished and Correa is (so far) just not good enough.

We're currently paying a heavy punishment for listening to Inzaghi and overpay for Correa. Too bad we can't go back in time and undo that costly big mistake.
