Haaland should have scored but you can see what he gives them, penetration.

I can see why Pep wanted Kane as number one CF though, his link play and movement between the lines is something Haaland doesn’t really have.
He will be frustrated some this season, used to getting the ball a lot quicker.

Yep Haaland is a bully that requires through balls and big crosses not tippy tappy ball. Haaland will need to adapt. City have in effect bought a Norwegian Didier Drogba.

Get 1-2 more elite players in say an AM and a top CB, add some luck and brilliance and maybe just maybe.
As it is, it's maybe. With those 2 signings, it's definitely.

Maybe City will spend a few months adjusting their play with Holland and end up finishing second to Spurs for the season

Watching him stand off defenders , he’s has an aura of intimidation. Remarkable really for a young chap

Don’t think anyone is writing him off, he is just a certain type of player who will need to adapt and probably will. His power and pace is crazy but City will need to use him for what he has and not pretend he is Harry Kane.

Harry Kane is a 9 + 10 all in one, only other player remotely like that who isn’t old (Messi) is Benzema. Haaland is a pure 9.

Was thinking similar. Going to take them time to adjust a bit….
….but.
Of their first 2 months (8 games)they only play 3 teams who finished in top half of standings last year (Spurs, Wolves, West Ham).

Pep even said that he won't adapt his football to Haaland. Haaland will have to adapt to Pep's football.

May it be a long adaptation period.
