    I don't want to knock Jesus. I was pleased he has improved last couple of games, from newspaper reports he has obviously been getting anxious about not scoring previously. IMO his suitability to replace Sergio is currently unproven.

    When I mentioned aerial threat from a replacement striker, I was thinking of someone of Lewandowski's or Harry Kane's stature, enabling scoring headed goals from set pieces as well as open play.

    We don't need a direct Sergio replacement, just move Sterling inside as backup to Jesus (before you all have a meltdown or a hissy fit, Sterling I think should be playing wide right when Jesus is fit).

    Then bring in a couple of out and out wingers (e.g. Sane). Fuck Mahrez off and move Bernardo into central midfield to rotate and compete with KDB and Foden. And try desperately to keep Leroy, without breaking any wage structures.

    I like Lautaro, although he seems a tad on the slow side. Jesus will remain where he is IMO.

    We need a natural born finisher and not a manufactured one, something that only Kun is in our current squad.

    Hàland and Jesus as a 2 upfront would set us up for long time. Then we could have Braff on the bench as the 3rd striker or play Raz there.

    how good has that delivery been to anybody, of any height? you saw his headers on those videos, anyone who can head like that can do it from set pcs. Our set pce. balls have been crap along with our corners.
    For four + years we have played shortish folks up front and mid, how'd that work out, aside from the records and trophies, and titles?

    To replace arguably the greatest striker the Premiership has seen in Augero is going to take some serious cash.

    Personally I hope the club go all out on Mbappe, a beast of a player and one whose value will increase daily.

    I fear that ship has sailed. PSG don't need the money, and they won't release him before his contract's up. He seems happy enough there. He's playing in a domestic league that doesn't offer any real challenge to his club, and won't do for the foreseeable future, and so he just might get itchy feet if PSG keep getting knocked out of the Champions League, but then if we keep getting eliminated from said competition too, we don't have the pulling power to prise him away. Hence the importance of winning the thing, whatever any City fan's personal opinion of it may be. It is a draw for the top players in Europe, and there's no getting round that.

    He's not at all the same type of player as Sergio, but I'd have Son in a heartbeat. Not that Levy would sell.
