    There's no evidence to suggest he'll be a 30 a year striker. As a rough measure, he's scoring 1 in 2 games, and less than 1 in 2 shots (so roughly a shot a game). It requires him to keep that insane conversion rate (which is more than double the likes of Kane and Agüero's who are usually around the 25-30% mark) and significantly increase his shot output. It's entirely doable, but there's not much to suggest at this stage he'll be that prolific.

    From what I've seen, he's looked like an elite poacher. He's not a complete forward but damn can he be the next Van Nilsteroy.


    Imagine Mou gets you playing like an 11-12 bayern.

    Martial: robben
    New RW: ribery
    Rashford: Gomez
    11/12 Bayern that didn't win any trophies and bottled the Champions League?

    Totally agree

    Btw Martial is Ribery (LW) and New RW will be Robben
    Nah cuz the way Martial cuts in onto his right foot with that deadly composure, he's like a mirror of Robben.

    Now you just need that playmaker elite winger like Ribery.

    Don't think he's ever scored a goal cutting in from the wing lol.... He usually beat his man on the outside and slaps the ball a plate for team mates

    Serious question, why does Henderson shoot so much from 20 + yards when his conversion rate must be awful?

    I seriously don't know - Henderson is actually terrible at shooting.

    I don't see him as our captain in all honesty. It's always gonna be hard to follow Gerrard but he doesn't have anything like the same influence, respect or aura of a captain.

    12/13 were a far better and more ruthless team.

    Man said Bayern 2011/2012 were a top team. Finished 2nd in the league, cup and UCL. Bridesmaids.

    And they have more than double his shots, because he's playing in the tenth best attacking team in the league. When he's playing in a team with amongst the most goals scored, which he likely will be for most of his career, he'll be able to have a far lower conversion rate and still get 20+

    Maybe, but maybe not. There's no evidence to say he will or won't, which is why I said its a hell of an assumption to say he'll be the next RvN, or to get 30 a season (even 20 tbh).

    The evidence is the number of shots he gets in a team with 40 goals, extrapolate that to the number of shots he'll have in a Mourinho team with 70+, plus the improvement from aging

    Only 2 or 3 players have ever reached 30 so need to use that as a standard
