If we speak about what we see we'd be here forever, hence why stats are useful. I could say Carroll is world class because i SAW him score an overhead kick a few weeks back. Fact is stats help you back up what you see.

 

You kind of proved my point about going back to other seasons with the Mahrez comparison.. Hence why i only looked at this season and that is how Brozovic is currently performing, why would i care how he performed 2, 5 or 10 years ago? Its not your past performances that get you the transfer, its what they are doing now. It took Rakitic until he was 26 to get his switch to a big club (Barca), you can't just say Brozovic is at his level at Inter ha ha. Or is this just your almighty superior footballing brain and vision coming into play again. :blush2:

So you only judge players based on one season? Or in this case 15 games? :laugh2: that proves how flawed your logic is, going back 2 or 3 seasons clearly gives a more accurate reading of how good a player really is, and as we can see Brozovic isn't really creative and isn't really good defensively.

Rakitic proved himself before he turned 26 and could have no doubt got a move to a big club earlier he had some very impressive seasons under his belt, Brozovic on the other hand as I told you doesn't even have one good season under his belt and you really think Conte would want him? 

This is getting really boring now, so I will say Brozovic is a decent player who I would have had at Chelsea in the summer as we were so bad last season I didn't think we would be challenging for the PL for a good few years, so a player like Brozovic would have been decent until we got back to being a top team again, but as Conte sorted us out we simply don't need a player like him, we need to be signing one of the top midfielders in Europe like Vidal, Koke or Rakitic or the most promising midfielder in Europe in Bakayoko, not someone who is a tier below in Brozovic.

Last night showed why veratti would be an absolute BEAST!!!!

Radja is a good player, but just not on the same level/plane. Veratti should be our first choice dream signing even though I see no reason why A) PSG will sell him, B) He would want to come.

Could go for the younger version of Verratti, Koziello from Nice.

Thanks to his energetic demeanour, which is in stark comparison to the more minimalist work rate of OGC Nice poster boy Hatem Ben-Arfa, his movement off the ball is constant, and this results in him seeing plenty of it. Furthermore, when given the opportunity he likes to burst forward with the ball, similar to Ben-Arfa. While his dribbling isn't flashy, he glides forward positively when given the space, and has been successful in over 66% of the occasion he has taken on an opposition player.

His work rate is crucial in defending as well as attack, and thanks to Koziello's awareness and intelligence he is able to use it to his advantage. Constantly throughout games Koziello is looking for spaces in the midfield or in front of the defence to fill in. This is particularly crucial in instances when midfield partner Seri has broken forward leaving a space in midfield alongside Mendy. Such good positional awareness has led to him averaging one interception and just under three tackles every game,

This defensive impact is surprising given both his attacking abilities and physical stature. Players who tend to fill the advanced playmaker role, and are of similar stature to Koziello, on the whole let their defensive work fall to the wayside, but instead Koziello uses it as another string to his bow. He is tenacious as a consequence of the aforementioned energy which engulfs him, and in addition to his positional awareness this gives him a plethora of opportunities to dispossess opponents. Furthermore, this bolsters his attacking impact, as he wins the ball in both the opposition half as a result of pressing high, as well as in his own half and this allows him to start attacks.

So while Koziello may not be the provider in terms of goals, he doesn't look to unpick defences with speculative splitting through balls too often, and prefers to be ready to foil a potential counter attack, rather than bursting into the overcrowded box as his team attacks, he is instead the enabler. His energy allows him to dispossess opponents and in conjunction with his precise passing, he gives his team a platform to mount menacing attacks from.

Or tielemans who despite being only 19, he has nearly 3 times as many appearances as koziello, including champions league and international experience.  

Not seen much of koziello, but is he ready to make the step up yet? 

Its a tricky one with signing young players, i think they need to be head and shoulders above our own products, or we may as well just go with one of our own.

From what I have seen mixed with that assessment then most defiantly.

Problem we have got is to compete in Europe we need truly elite players, chances to sign players already there like Verratti and Dybala are long shots so the best way to go is to gamble on players with a high chance of getting there like we did with Hazard and Juve did with Dybala.
