Having watched defoe have the best part of half a season now, do we think he has what it takes toxt season. For me he has been very good when called upon and has maybe not had a fair crack at it?
I think with alfredo likely heading out the door in the summer we could cope with bringing in another young prospect like morelos at a fee of a 3-4m to replace him with defoe adding depth in that position again as youngsters are rarely consistent.

Think money we get for alfredo could be better spent on a CB to partner Goldson or Katic and more importantly a ball playing midfielder.

Defoe is getting his chance now and for all Gerrard saying the morelos thing is in the past I don't believe it. If Defoe starts to put the ball in the net I doubt Morelos will even get a start before the end of the season and will then be sold. If we secure 2nd I would rather see a youngster brought in for last games than Morelos.

i would think if you wanted to maximise the fee for Morelos then why take him out of the shop window, doesn't make sense. furthermore i am not convinced he will leave this year.

No doubt Defoe will score goals but will not turn defeats to Celtic and Aberdeen into wins. If he is to be the main goal threat in these games he has to play in a traditional 442. This means we need to get a tried and tested 15 goal a season Target man alongside him to create/ link the play to get us up the park against Celtic and Aberdeen. That big lad at Hearts might fit the bill

Defoe cannot operate as or has never been effective as a lone striker

It is good to see him and Davis turning in some form though.

JBoy it is good to see potential opportunity for Rudden but there is also the other lad Andrew Dallas who looks like a more rounded striker with potential with Rudden an out and out poacher.

Like every year/ preseason, all fans crave that Charlie Miller or Ferguson breakthrough which brings real hope.

If the plan is to sell Morales then he will play the last games, shop window etc, but if SG's plan is to keep and play him next season then he should drop him beyond the four final games if not them all. Just the short sharp shock the young fellow needs.

That would be a a bit of a head f**k wouldn't it? Every man and his dog has him already sold but there is that chance, however thin it may be, that he could stay.
Imagine a world and time where Alfredo Morelos manages to stay calm, not react and just play football, that would be something to behold. 🤯.

JBoy

I stand corrected. Knew he was on loan but did not realise he was not making an impact. Was only judging on his play for the development Squad previously Won’t give up on the boy just yet.

Mols, no a young lad, but has to deliver to have any chance of getting game with us, least rudden is delivering so far.

Agreed

Just checked and Dallas is 20 this year. Needs to start making an impact.
