Don't get why people are so keen to get rid of Alfredo and dig into him so much, he might not be doing so good against the other mob but one of our best strikers in recent times only scored once against Celtic and no1 wanted him to leave, personally I would keep Alfredo as long as possible, he's a prolific scorer, and without him and his goals we wouldn't be in the position we are, and he plays for the shirt, something we haven't seen since Walter left for the 2nd time and that's what we need. And as for barasic, I wouldn't want to let him go for less than 20/ 25 mil! We have Croatia's 1st choice left back! If this was the 90s teams would be getting told where to go, sell on the dead wood and build on the good players we have! We can't go every transfer window selling our best players and our big signings being replacements! I mean last season we had Kent on loan and he was effectively our marquee signing! We just payed 7 odd million for a player we are used to seeing, just think we should be keeping this team together and adding to it instead of selling the best bits! Last year we LET candieas leave and replaced him with Jordan Jones! When candieas was one of our better players and hardest workers! All am saying is we shouldn't even be considering selling our best to just replace them! Build on what good players we have if we want a chance at winning the league next season as well as Europe!

Rant over lol.

As there's continual talk on here amongst us all, as to whether we should sell alfredo morelos or not got me thinking about what i'm going to throw out there, to you guys. IF jermain defoe was 27 years old instead of 37 years old and morelos was the age he is now, who would you prefer to be our no.1 striker and why and in what system? 🤔.

He's a liability under pressure, last 2 seasons he's exploded under the pressure.

Morelos temperament is not improving. Yes he's scored many important goals for us but we can all see his heart isn't in it. The boy wants away. So for that reason I'd say cash in this window and not any less than 15 million with a sell on.

A love Alfredo and a really wish he would sort himself out, he’s been here for 3 seasons and he’s not had a completed good full season, people say he plays for the shirt? A think he’s more interested in himself, countless times last season his decision making was really bad, numerous times he is in great positions to slide a pass in bit he prefers to shoot, this is just my opinion and it is not a dig, Defoe at 27 over Morelos aswel, such a natural finisher it’s scary, and we should not be looking to sell Borna 1 of our best performers last season, hopefully this is the year #letsgo.

Morelos is a better a player at 22 than Defoe Was at any age. For Defoe to be really affective he has always had to play as a two up top. Defoe cannot play the loan striker role.

As we all know Morelos has to grow up or he will never reach his full potential.

I really rate morelos MOLS, but have to be honest here mate, he's not in the same class as defoe was so far mate! Defoe is way better/ more natural finisher than defoe. Defoe was miles better at 22 than morelos was/ is and that's the honest truth pal. Wee defoe is/ was different class! Morelos IMHO couldn't score the same number of goals in the english premier league that defoe has done. Defoe was i'm sure the 5th best goalscorer in the english premiership history mate, that says it all!

MOLS you are talking nonsense, he will never be as good as Defoe at his peak.

03 Jul 2020 22:44:54
i don't know why you are comparing, for one they are totally different types of players. the whole system would need changed to suit defoe. to say Morelos isn't a natural goal finisher is also nonsense. you don't get 30 goals in half a season if you aren't a natural goal finisher. Morelos bullies defenders and is much more suited for our game. furthermore he isn't their for assists he is like most strikers and wants to put the ball in the net. people on here are unreal constantly wanting to sell our best talent and bring in untried talent.

Defoe at 27 would never be near us, far too good. 👍.

As much as I rate Alfie it’s Defoe for me.

In our system I'd still take morelos. Defoe can't play up top on his own.

Bangs goals in and will only get better as he matures be a mistake let him go now father hood could be the making of him.

The biggest loss with Candias leaving outside his work rate was how much he helped Tav. He was always running back to cover. Definitely missed him.

Yeah but how good will Morelos be at 27? So it’s favouring Defoe huh 🤔, Defoe was a full England international, so if we were to replace Morelos with a full England international nowadays how much would one cost? Vardy, Raheem Stirling, Harry Kane, Marcus rashford? Dint think we could afford any of them, Morelos however is a full Colombian international, and us still a few years ahead of him until he turns 27 🤔 so if u asked would u take Defoe at Morelos age or Morelos at Morelos age I reckon Morelos just shades it for me!

There is no doubt that Defoe is the better finisher but he is not a better centre forward or player. Morelos has incredible stats when you consider goals and assists. There is no way Defoe could have provided the performances Morelos gave us in Europe this year. There is a good reason that he was Gerard’s first pick almost ever time both were fit and available.

God finisher though Defoe is we are not as effective a team with Defoe in it.

Incidently both Defoe and Morelos got their first full international cap at 22 years old 🤔 would u take a Defoe at 27 with no Morelos? Or a Defoe as he is now andd Morelos 🤔😂.

04 Jul 2020 08:12:10
Idk where people get this defoe is not a lone striker when he played half his career as a lone striker. Just because he's not 6ft 4 doesn't mean he needs someone beside him.

Agreed Coldo Defoe at 27 would not have given us a second thought. Really think the question is pointless.

Defoe is 8th in the list of all-time EPL goalscorers with 162. That's some record. On the point of changing our system to play two up front, then why don't we? Morelos + a new signing with Defoe still coming on as sub or starting in certain games. SG persevered with a lone striker but it hasn't won us the league or anything else. Look at Liverpool's success with three great strikers in Salah, Mane and Firmino! Too much dependence on Morelos. That can't happen next season.

Defoe isn’t a lone striker simply because that role takes a helluva lot of running, pulling out wide, tracking back, pressing from the front etc etc Defoe doesn’t have the pace or energy/ stamina anymore to cover the kinda ground Morelos does, that’s why in my opinion he could play that role but not anymore! Not as effectively as Morelos anyway, which is why Morelos starts when both fit, and why I presume people are calling for decent third striker to allow Defoe in a 2 up top or at least to allow Defoe to be effective from the bench if Morelos out 🤔etc.

Geesadodothat, good post. Morelos and Defoe are both excellent strikers but they are very different in the way they play.

Good assessment and if Gerard does this then Defoe starts to come into his own and the competition for places gets more competitive.
