    You can't say they are anything like the same though,sergio wants only to score,he has tunnel vision in that regard

    They're very different but equally effective. I believe Jesus has a better goal return than Aguero had at the same age too, open to correction on that.

    I think we have headed straight into what will be a short but perhaps painful transition. Vinny is gone, David is going and Fern and Kun have at most two seasons left and Otto is likely to be off soon too. The three players mentioned above all need more game time as they should form part of the next generation and hopefully Foden and Garcia will fill the slots vacated by Dave and Otto. This still leaves a few new recruits over the next couple of seasons and if Pep confirms his departure in 2021 or perhaps leaves prematurely next May the task of replacement may be left to the new manager. While we are most certainly short at CB this group of players when everybody is fit is still a formidable outfit. In a sense modern management and planning necessitates a degree of on-going transition rather than waiting for a squad to reach the end of the road together. Therefore,I predict a relatively stable period ahead, notwithstanding the current predicament, and the key issue over the next two years may well be who replaces Pep.

    He can do it but aguero does it a lot better though i think his attributes would make him deadly as a wide forward pep just needs to drop mahrez shift sterling over to the right and get jesus on at the left

    That's a meaningless stat though,there are a million other variables,i think gabby is more suited to play with someone else than alone,the situation will sort it out naturally,you have to say pep has his reasons with what he is doing

    Aguero played for athletico at jesuss age didnt he? either way jesus has been part of one of the best premier league teams ever its not a fair comparison as he will get more goals in this team than aguero could in that athletico team

    Jesus has been quite productive since January. Even if you don't count the goals against lower level opposition in the Carabao Cup, he has been scoring goals. The idea that he can't lead the line is based on old memories. He provides better physical presence than Sergio and his link up play is quite good actually. Our best chance against Wolves came when he created an opening for Cancelo who passed it to Bernardo. He started also the attack for the 2nd goal against Zagreb. He can play well outside the box, he can score goals and he can press. I didn't see any drop in quality in our attack when he played against West Ham and Everton away. He scored the first goal in both games and did generally well.
