Aye, mostly shite for us though.Maxy Gradel did alright for himself in the end, non?
If he can control the ball like Barnes and Gray then we are fooked! If this lad can beat his oppo and deliver real quality then we have a good buy on our hands imoI don't think he plays anything like Mahrez apart from cutting in from right hand side.
Mahrez is very unique in his skillset. The ball sticks to his feet. It's not just the odd stepover and running past defenders, he glides around them with so much finesse. He does 5 stepovers in a row, nutmegs, then he flicks it behind and cuts back. Mahrez makes the defender fall on his arse or in some cases myltiple defendeders fall on their arse. He doesn't try to run past them, he sneaks past them like the Pink Panther.
I don't think we'll ever find someone like him again. I think Benrahma is a similar option though not the same. But Ünder seems more like a Barnes/Gray hybrid type player. He runs past defenders fairly easily, has some skill and can take players on. I think he's faster than Mahrez too. He seems the type to knock the ball past you with space and run.
So if he's shit he's a bad signing and if he's good he's a good signing?If he can control the ball like Barnes and Gray then we are fooked! If this lad can beat his oppo and deliver real quality then we have a good buy on our hands imo
Although apparently Drinkwater could be on his way there too...
