All good, imo. He is obviously not fit enough for us, therefore we can't have him traipsing all round Asia, with the high possibility that he might aggravate the current injury or get another one. Better he stays here.Not included in South Korea’s initial squad for the upcoming international games. Good news and bad there.

Yes, you're right, I read your post as it's bad for the national side. So easy to misinterpret a post on hereYep but let’s just hope his injury isn’t worse than feared. How many times over the years have we heard player X is out for a month with minimal news on his injury like in this case and then we don’t see them for months.
You've got to say that we've looked better going forward without him no?You just really don’t want any good players do you?
More fluid in possession? Perhaps. But bereft of the finishing touch that Sonny so bountifully provides.You've got to say that we've looked better going forward without him no?
He's about equal to Kane this season taken as a whole but if he were on Spurs rather than Wolves he'd be having a much better goal/assist tally.He wants Raul Jimenez at any cost.
I was thinking we sign a Vlahovic type of player then sell Sonny to get a bona fide AM to really fill that void.More fluid in possession? Perhaps. But bereft of the finishing touch that Sonny so bountifully provides.
There were so many moments in that game where a brilliant passing move ended with Hojbjerg or Davies or something in the position to stick the dagger in.
Sonny doesn’t solve that per se, it’s just that we need players who can find the back of the net and you hate the only two we’ve got.

We've got players that can sort of do the Son role. What we need is a bona fide AM with goals. That's what Conte needs. Son can't do that role.
If we keep Kane, Son should go and we should use that money to sign a bona fide AM + another striker.In what .. one game?
We were crap in both legs vs Chelsea. No goals over 180 minutes. And even today we looked fluid but it took a 1 in a million event for us to win. You want to sell our most productive attacker this season because of one match against Leicester City? And you also want to sell the other attacker who was the main reason we looked good going forward today?
If we keep Kane, Son should go and we should use that money to sign a bona fide AM + another striker.
If Kane goes, Son should stay and we should sign a couple young strikers like Valhovic + another up and comer with the Kane money.
I don't see a situation whereby we play a very fluid, organized style of football with Son/Lucas as our AM/creative forces and Kane as striker.
I also don't see a favorable long term outcome if Son and Kane are both playing striker. The way they score goals is very similar nowadays (ie. getting in behind, looking for a through ball in front of them). What we need is more dynamism and players that can score in different ways. They currently overlap in many ways.
The only way we can maximize both of them is if we convert Kane into a full time #10 and he takes up that role as the AM. Then put Sonny as a striker alongside another traditional striker.
There's a few other players I'd offer first!!!!I'd try to offer Son to Leicester for Maddison
Of course Son would probably decline but I think Maddison would be a huge improvement in terms of overall play
