Whoa! Steady on there fella. Can might not have turned into a top drawer midfielder, or anything like one, but he was surely better than Igor Beckenbauer. I have to confess that I thought Biscan would become a very good player for us based on some of his early showings. Nothing world beating but what I thought showed quite a bit of promise for someone who was only about 22 and adapting to a foreign league. A couple of years later though and he's struggling to get a game, lagging behind the likes of Salif Diao FFS, as Houllier's transfer strategy fell apart. Maybe it was a case of wrong place wrong time for him or he just actually wasn't very good.
Good point about players coming in. We really need to off load Wijnaldum for that as well.I like Can. My only issue with him staying is that we might not get the players we still need (i.e. DM and a creative CM). We will have better players replacing him for sure, so I'm really comfortable with him off.
Also, I don't think he evolved as much as I thought he would do. We will be better served with Neves/Jorginho.
I thought it was down to either Çan or Meyer and neither made it. At least Emré can concentrate on getting himself fit for club X's early season fixtures. Nice to see he wasn't one of the Turkish-German Erdogan sycophants in London. Spineless of Löw to nominate the culprits anyway today. Let's hope Özil 'rewards' him with his Arsenal form level next month.Yep, Löw just said that Emre is now out since March and hasn't started running or some other fitness things so far. He is only able to do some kind of gymnastics.
Milner > Can. You haven’t watched the champions league if you argue otherwiseI think we get it, you prefer the other midfielders over Can. But to go so far to say that Can makes us a worse team is perhaps a bit too far-streched IMO. For me there's no way to claim that either Wijnaldum, henderson or Milner are much better players or fit Klopps philosophy much more than Can and I've seen enough games to conclude that is not the case. Also It's a bit funny that you know more about Klopp's system and players fitting in than Jurgen himself. it's actually quite hilarious.
