    I’ll watch him as well, if he can score against a team of divers parking the bus he’ll do fine on Serie A

      And especially against Rubentus.

    Most dribbles in top 5 leagues:
    1. Hazard
    2. Kondo with 14

      Of which 4 of it resulting in him getting dispossessed. His statistics are getting closer and closer to his Monaco’s golden days (albeit his defensive stats are not).

      FDB’s system really encourage such aggressiveness to flourish. I think we’ll see more goals coming from our midfields this season.

        Me too – we saw in the Palermo game that we have a lot of players coming into the box now, not only one like when Mancini was our coach, but now our midfielders are running lad mads to into the box to help out Icardi as well!

          If only his (Icardi’s) style of play isn’t so one dimensional…. At least now that we have a couple more dynamic, high workload energizer bunnies like JM, Banega, and (I hope) Gnokouri I think we can keep this up for a while.
