'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Our new Jewel in the crown?

Up until perhaps 18 months ago, Lewis Holtby was not a name I was overly familiar with.

However, since hearing about his possible opportunity to play for the England national team whilst listening to TalkSport one lonely drive home, I decided to check out the little fella. Young, intelligent, skilful, tough, and apparently smart enough to choose us over them lot down the road, this lad (on paper) ticks all the boxes.

I was just wondering, has anyone actually seen him play? I'm not on about a televised game, I mean actually been there, in the stadium? As that's the best way to judge a player. From what I have seen, he is very similar in style to Luka, whilst maybe providing more of a goal threat. The way he plays at Schalke, is a little more advanced than the role Luka played for us, but from what I have read, he see's himself (or wants to) playing a deeper role in the coming years. He would appear to have a knack of finding space even within congested areas of the pitch, and for me, always shows a willingness to accept the ball and pick out a team-mate with a killer pass.

I for one, am delighted that we have been able to get this business done so early, I think it shows that Levy has complete faith in AVB, and is willing to back him. We also have a new player with us, for the whole of our pre-season, something we've not always been able to boast of! I honestly believe, that a midfield 3 of Sandro, Dembele and Holtby, ticks every box you would want ticking in a Premier league midfield.

Now, if we can just convince Gareth not to go just yet, add another winger capable of covering both flanks as cover for Gareth and Azza, and find ourselves that illusive 20+ goal a season striker, well then I would start to get really excited.......Speaking of that 20+ goal per season striker, would my namesake be too old for us now?!
