1 goal and 3 assists in his first 3 games in a new league and a new club somehow people are complaining about a missed pass here or there...
Cut the man some slack....
Dude has been above any expectations thus far lets hope he keeps it up.

I mean he is great at the build up play in all 3 games. Just he is in insanely high wages and 27. Massive gamble for a broke club like ours. So far it is working out hope that continues and he gets at least Dzeko goal tally from last season

27 is typically the age a striker gets into their prime. I see him as a player who hasn’t quite yet reached his potential so hardly a gamble considering he’s free. Considering he was linked to so few clubs though makes me guess he had high wage demands? Is that the case here?

Standards are higher than an assist per game? Like what are the expectations your talking about exactly?
For me as long as he plays well, delivers something countable and we win it s all good and thats what he s been doing thus far...

Wether it s 5 goals and 10 assists or 10 gals and 5 assists at the end of the season i really could care less as long as we win and he contributes to it.
Thuram is not going to average an assist per a game so let's not go there. We've made a significant investment in our new #9. A high return is expected. 15 G+A over 50+ games for our starting striker, especially given our defensive deficiencies, won't be enough.

u joking bro?

Don't know bro, I remember Balogun wished him HPBD when he turned 26 sometime last month. And if my math is correct, he should be 35 right now with the rate people are adding years to his age. Kinda relieved to learn he's still 27.

In that case, Sanchez is 40 years old until proven otherwise

Prolific, prolific.... If Inter keep on winning and the team clicks, they'll still find something to 'whine' about. In this case 'Thuram not scoring enough'.
If Inter struggle then the pressure on Thuram will mount, no doubt. In this moment I'm impressed with Inter and this 'non-prolific' Thuram.

Let's just see how the season rolls.

That was great to read, cheers. I was an enormous fan of Lilian and his professionalism, bodes well for Marcus’ future to have that in the genes & now in terms of his own personality

You can see he lacks instinctive technical skills in scoring position but he is tireless and continually gets into good positions. If he gets that killer goalscorer edge, he’d be like Diego Milito

Well well well

He is surely making me eat my words about him not being a good finisher
