I would rather give him another season to see if his mediocre performance was a problem related to the style of play, like the club did with soldado.
I might get slammed for this but I honestly didn't think Son was worst on pitch against the Toon...
He scored some critical goals at critical times, at least two winners from memory.
I thought at times he showed his class.
Also Janssen is not Son's replacement, Son is not a striker and never has been..
And £11m was too cheap for this guy...
God bless the Eredivisie.
Fair enough Oz. I think he's rubbish - a head down selfish footballer, now whining about being released for S Korea. I think it's obvious that Poch has lost faith - especially with his keenness to fuck of to the Olympics. I'm good at spotting these types of players - expensive mistake mate.
I think our current style of play doesn't suit him; his more direct.
Many were lambasting Lamela, yet I see fairly little naysayers now; whether he can re-invent himself like Lamela remains to be seen.
Given his price tag and the loss we would have to take on him, I'm happy to give him another season; he is versatile enough to be effective off the bench. Whether he offers anything different to Chadli I'm not sure.
Interesting conundrum for Poch but not one which will be decided by Janssen's signing.
