Just happy we've got a body coming in. Not an inspiring signing but by the sounds of it he may be capable of doing a job.

Morata Mk II.

Was fantastic alongside Morata playing for Real Madrid's B team back in the day it seems. 30 goals that season.

Rafa apparently wanted him last season but he didn't want to drop down, so he's someone Rafa likes, and that gives me confidence tbh.

It seems he's a big striker, but also likes to get in behind and is pretty mobile, which suits Rafa's approach. Have a sneaky feeling he'll be ace.

Nice that he's coming off a really good pre season with Stoke too, so he should hopefully be raring to go.

Where is that from?
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

Not massively keen on this but wasn't really moved at the prospect of signing Perez either. Hopefully it works out for him here 👍

Surely an upgrade on Murphy? Who I wasn't keen on but did his role well.

Trust Rafa on this.

Like a mini Crouch who Rafa always loved. Good feet for a big(ish) man.

Get this done, complete Kenedy and then hang in for Perez. There's no way Arsenal keep him and let him rot.

You never know, we might even be able to shift some players to be able to afford him outright...

Don't rate Hughes as a manager so can believe he is better than record suggests. Injury record is more concerning

Will give him a chance, seems to be a mobile striker which we need under Rafa's system.

Any good V.I?

I'm just happy we're getting a player in a critical position, tbh.

Another I've never heard of. Can't have had much game the at Stoke.

Total of 12 games, stoke fans seem to think he's good and deserved much more from Hughes.

Legitimately the most unexciting signing ever but we're desperate for another striker.

I've been far less excited for signings then this like, I mean think about some of the s*** we've signed in the past.
just messaged mybstoke season ticket holder mate and he says he'd rather Hughes f***ed off and they kept him. He rates him, so.....

Didn't know that. Reassuring if true that it's not a last resort compromise.

Trust in Rafa.

£6m according to Marca.

In these days the deals for Lejeune, Atsu and now Joselu have been really good.

Hope come the end of the season all three have shown to be exceptional value.

Praying the Lejeune injury isn't bad because he was looking so good man. Atsu was terrific yesterday and is beginning to show the kind of pedigree that had Chelsea after him originally.
