    Hope this guy isn’t going to turn out to be a right-sided Boli who can’t defend.

    @Belgian_lad Have your Antwerp-supporting friends said anything about his defensive abilities?

    The only good things I’ve really heard have been about when he’s on the attack.

    All "thats racist" jokes aside this is a concern of mine too.

    Seems very good going forward but have my concerns over him defensively. Was part of a side which was * humped by the Huns too.

    Bolingoli also played against them for Rapid and was pish.

    Sounds a bit like a secondary target.

    I think Baldock is maybe our main target

    Sounds classic us. No doubt we'll make a move as he is signing a contract with his new club and then peddle the usual 'we tried' pish.

    We were close to signing Vuskovic until Starfelt became available. Might be similar with this one

    Was that actually the case though?

    Also, why didn't we get both? We're desperate for more than one center back.

    We have a history of incompetence. This shows nothing to suggest that we've come off the negligence train.

    In the last half hour of the Liege game last night his team lost two goals in as many minutes. He's a guy that wants to go running at defenders. Looks quick.
    I wasn't overly impressed with his defending. The goals they shipped looked like the type of goals we'd ship. He's a counter attack player. A winger, and i don't think it does us any harm having another guy who wants to go and take players on.
    Defensively he was quite happy to stand around and wait for the ball, which is maybe down to him wanting away, or nursing a slight knock, or tactical.
    I just thought if he sat in, his team would see out the game. Didn't happen and i was a bit dumbfounded. If he tracked back 20 yards, at worst the game ends in a draw. So it looks like this one will happen and he'll terrorize Barisic. I'm guessing he can also sit in, but this is the worry for me. Managers who sit on their hands.
    A one way ticket to another thumping in Europe. Tell you what though, he can really put the turbos on. I doubt he'll be wonderful in the air so the same problems might persists if we can't start scoring more goals in games.

    I know that was reported/on the rumour mill but we fumble our way through negotiations and recruitment in general so I'm not ruling out that we were umming and arring over any signing.

    Like I said - I still don't know why we didn't take both.

    he has been consistabtly one of the best RB in Belgium in an Antwerp team that played pretty aggressive in the time he was in Belgium. I think the Antwerp style of play in the team he played for is similar to what the huns play the last 2 years and he always held his own. Till his injuries, but he got back on track and played all games during the Play offs.

    yesterday he played against Mechelen not Liege

    Thing is i cant find a single reputable Belgian news outlet regarding this transfer. The belgian sources are those gossip sites who use the turkish journalist as a source.

    Is he completely over his injury worries? Looked like he was nursing an ankle issue.
