I don’t think Kovacic was that bad, especially for his first season in English football. We’d have been better off with him in midfield than Sissoko, Alli or Dier.
Helped Chelsea finish above us and knock us out of a semi.
Compare his performance in Chelsea’s Europa win, where he had a really good game to the debacle that was Sissoko who spent the entirety of our CL final fucking pointing in random directions.
I saw next to nothing to suggest that Kovacic was a £50m player. A few nice touches but he weren't all that. I do think if our injuries weren't as crippling we'd have comfortably secured 3rd and probably done them in that semi. No Son or Kane for that game at Stamford Bridge was a hammer blow, as was most of our season not having a genuine home game but I get what you're saying. Still underwhelmed for me.
Sissoko for player of the season 19/20 BC?
