Daily Star reporters put a serious face on while working @ their desks while their lemon tea was cooling down and they wrote articles of City maybe buying Buchanan for 50 000 000 POUNDS and they nodded to themselves and felt like professionals when they pressed send in the end.

Yup.

If he fail should be relatively easy to recoup… can’t really be much worse then Cuadrado

Very much welcome. Your playstyle has become quite formulaic. At times you need players to improvise. Hopefully Inzaghi does not try to limit his dribbling.

Why on earth would Inzaghi limit anyone he ain’t Conte.

Compilation creators that don’t show the player delivering the final ball should be taken out to a paddock and shot.

It’s akin to watching a comedian compilation that cuts off before every punchline.

I’m always worried when I see clips of a player skinning his opponent, having obvious options to deliver the killer ball, before it swaps to him skinning another player and so on…

Jesus Christ you are right. That's a terrible highlight. If I am assuming every cutoff is a brainfart move after a nice dribble, the end product of this guy is shit :lol:

Hopefully he isn't a Candreva without cross.

Talking about everyone's favorite striker Gift Orban, his form has fallen off the cliff. Only 3 league goals so far, he also seems to have lost his starting spot :lol:
Yeah but the entire team is also having too many off days, still being third in the league.

But agree, his form has declined a lot. He's still young so his form could return

Agreed. And this is the best I could find which probably tells you something.

There nothing Candreva about him, he cross as well as Dumfries from what I seen… so we are in for a delight.

Also I find it a bit interesting that he is listed as a full back/wing back because frankly his skill set actual more a winger or outside forward.

His YouTube compilation is very underwhelming…
But he played for my local college team (the Orange), so he’s more than welcome!

If his Youtube compilation is very underwhelming then Dumfries compilation is the worst ever.

It’s good that we’re getting him at 24, and not any older. There’s still time to refine him if he’s determined enough to learn and improve.

This guy was playing college soccer in the USA not even 5 years ago :lol: US collegiate soccer to inter in such a short amount of time is absolutely mad. It means that he has a lot of natural talent, but will also certainly mean that he will likely be way out of his depth in terms of footballing knowledge. There’s likely potential for big upside here, but certainly not a sure bet.

Yes which is why people shouldn’t be expecting another Hakimi, like I’ve heard some people rumbling about. Hakimi was already a blossoming star and we paid the blossoming star price. Buchanan is more like a promising penny-stock bet.

His a somewhat similar gamble to Bisseck and Augusto it’s hard knowing whether or not that gamble pays off or not.

We can just look over to our city rivals how uncertain those gamble are

I reserve my judgment when I see him play. Fortunately he's not a fossil and the price is not high, so if he sucks we can offload him without any heavy loss or we can keep loaning him out till the end of time.

You know almost everybody has written this guy off because he's played in Brugge after coming from US, not in Bayern. They both have similar attributes, age, height, pace, can beat a man h2h.

Buchanan performed as good as Davies at the World Cup . Assisted Davies on Canada's first WC goal too. One is 70M€ destined to Real Madrid the other will be working on a fishing boat at 30 years old in Northern Sea because his career trajectory sent him to Belgium first.

We got him cheap. Just like we got Bisseck.

Also Denzel has become tad too cocky recently and its about time an unknown Canadian hockey fan will start to bench him because of the skill not because of his contract stalling.

Let him settle in. We don't really need to rush him because Dumfries is healthy again. Players need competition and Cuadrado is at home on crutches watching Rube matches the next 3 months with their shirt on probably. Denzel needs to put to the test.
