Wesley Moraes - signed (confirmed)
« on: June 13, 2019, 03:24:19 PM »
Seems to happening. Let's hope he's as good as the last bloke we bought from that league. Our first ever Brazilian player?

32 goals in 107, young and big (by footballer standards).

That's the extent of my knowledge having never heard of the bloke until seeing this thread

Hope you don't mind but I've just slightly amended the thread title in part to avoid raising people's hopes too much and in the main in the hope of not jinxing it.

As for the player, I didn't know of his existence an hour or two ago so, hopeful rather than expectant about this potential deal. It would be an encouraging bit of business though.

nope that's fine.

He's a raw talent. He looks like he's got decent pace and a bit of the Benteke's about him in terms of range of goals. We knew nothing about Benteke either and he fit in well to the PL game so we can only hope if this comes off that he's much the same.

If he turns out anywhere near as good as the last striker we signed from Belgium then I'll be happy.

Stats I've seen don't look overwhelmingly great but always prefer to see goals per chances rather than goals per game.

Tammy looks great when it comes to goals per game but goals per chances not so flush - Wesley could be the opposite. In which case we just need to guarantee we can create chances for him.

In Dean we trust.

Console yourself with the fact that you actually posted the tweet, rather than the half-arsed job I went for!

The lad is a bit of a unit and is going to get stronger and fitter in the more demanding PL. You can never truly tell on YouTube and level of competition needs to be considered also but he has some pace and he can finish. And the right age to develop.
