January 2019 signing #1 Antonio Barreca

Post by Emiliano Sala's Invincible Hair » Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:13 pm

Understandably a bit overlooked because of the other developments, but he is a signing and deserves his own thread. On loan with an option to buy. Rumoured loan fee 1m euro, with a 9m euro option to buy.

Has he started for Monaco at all this season?

Hardly. Hasn't really worked out for him there at all - but tbh Thierry Henry has done such an awful job there that's not much of a criticism of him personally

Knowing how poor their scoring has been this season, I was going to say their defending has at least been a strength, and then I looked at the table again I realized they've conceded 38 goals too. But as you said, they've been a complete flop this season, and I'm not sure as a player who hasn't been playing its more damning or less.

Aye it's been a disaster like. Well he can't be any worse than Manquillo.

This lad is a real talent I seen him play two years ago for Italian U21's again he was a constant threat, I think he'll be a very good signing for us, definitely better then Manquillo

I'm guessing you're referring to Santon?

To be fair to him injuries took their toll on him, I remember him being fantastic until his knee went.

It's been a while since we signed a wonderkid. Is Almiron too old for that classification? Does Mitro count?

Almiron is 24 so definitely too old. I’d say <20 years old could be classed as wonderkid.

I mean the lad left Monaco to come here.

I love Newcastle but for christ sake; he lived in Monte Carlo.
