Depends whether goosens can replicate his 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 form or not. He reaches those heights then it won't be a problem in terms of g/a's.Sure. That's not really the point, though. The point is we're going to have a hard time replacing those contributions unless others significantly step up.
Perisic had 7assists in Serie A last season whilst Barella and Hakan had 12 each. Not doubting that he was our MVP last season but what are you basing your argument that our medfielders lack assist on?Yea but we need proper wingbacks to help our strikers to score. Our midfield also lack that. We need players to assist strikers. We were better last season cause we had Perisic. Now we have Gosens who has physical and also mental problem cause of all injuries he had last two years. And we are to lose Dumfries leaving with Bellanova and Darmian. Thats not good enough. Look at fkn rube, Chiesa, Cuntdrado, DiMaria, Kostić is coming, all of these players are better service to striker then any of our current players. Of course we are in deep shit and season is right there.
The problem is Gosens and Dumfries are very similar player, except Dumfries is faster.I think we need to adjust our expectation for Gosens. He's not the kind of player who can dribble past 2 opposition players and creates a play like Perisic. Gosens is exceptionally gifted in getting himself in good position for a cross or a shot. We need to adjust our tactics accordingly. Those on the opposing side (like Skriniar, Brozo and Barella) need to pay special attention to this. Otherwise he'll just run up and down like Nagatomo...
