When we signed the giant Spaniard for a reported 12m I asked myself the question ... Why? Where will he fit in? In what scenario will he start games? Or even get minutes? Two months into the season I'm scratching my head even more as to the logic of the purchase of a striker who will turn 33 in a few months. A like for like for Kane he ain't. A plan B some might say and yes I can 'get' that but were not really a side who go long or put cross after cross into the mixer so to speak. We play with either no wingers or inverted ones at that.. Trippier the only genuine crosser but he tends to put the ball in early yet low and hard. So far apart from Madrid we have started with a sole forward and to my mind haven't ended too many with two forwards even when chasing games which is when he could be of value. Maybe he could be used to give Kane a rest once games have been put to bed but against Liverpool he was only introduced with 8 mins or so remaining and HK had strained his hamstring. The game was done and dusted and Harry should have been tucked up in bed by the time the injury occurred due to the lack of faith in the big cart horse as felon would say. He's had a few cup outings as would be expected but flopped in both being intact subbed off. When he has come on in more meaningful games the dynamic of the side has suffered with zero pace over the top. Against Madrid and Man Utd his intro invited the opposition back four to squeeze play due to his lack of work rate,pace and mobility and left us biting our nails v real and maybe cost us a draw v man utd. I don't see the logic in loaning out a 23 yr old 17m investment signing to spend another 12m flop with no resale value who will receive a similar amount of game time. At least Vincent works hard and runs channels with his pace. If we wanted a bean pole striker could we have got Peter Crouch on a free. Or if we wanted an impact Sub how difficult would it have been to tempt Defoe back on a short term deal if we wanted a stop gap striker who wasn't too fussed over starting games rather than waste millions. Son was touted as striker when we signed him at 20m, Janssen 17m and now Llorente 12m. That's almost £50m wasted on signing a back up striker. Would it have been wiser to spend the full amount on someone who can push Harry for a start or better still partner him. City Man Utd Chelsea etc don't keep signing players who are happy to back other players up. City signed Jesus to replace the untouchable Aguero and the results have been there for all to see. Aguero and City have gone from strength to strength. Hopefully Fernando will prove me wrong and grab a couple of goals at home to palace but Its more likely he only gets a couple of minutes.
