Ok, after popular demand (1 person) I got onto youtube to have a look at Dalot whilst the wife settled down for Love Island. Just to note, she is having this privilege because in 8 days the amount of football that will be on our TV will be obscene (also the bikini dressed ladies are rather easy on the eye) .

Anyway, from what I saw of Dalot, he has a fantastic right foot and delivers a wicked ball, something Lukaku hopefully will thrive off and we have lacked a little this year. Physically he is a big lad which will tick a box for Jose and he looks comfortable in 1 v 1 situations.

As posted below, a lot of his games seemed to be at LB where he seemed comfortable which gives us a good option and he appeared to read the game well. He also played at Anfield this season as LB and coped with the game Wouldn't surprise me if near the end of his career he finishes playing at CB.

Anyway, I think this is a shrewd signing. Rumours were, Real, Barca, Juve etc were all interested, he has been at Porto since he was 9 years old which won't be a bad schooling for him. My early prediction is that he will play more games then expected this season, even finishing the season as a first choice FB.

Think the most important thing about this signing is it indicates, or at least I hope it indicates, a clear plan for the summer. CM x 2, CB, LB, RB and RW are needed but we can't afford the time or money to go after elite talent in all positions. With a summer's rest proper rotation, which we didn't see at all this past year, Valencia should be able to get that engine and athleticism back that made him so good at RB in late 2016. Getting Dalot in quickly allows us time and funds to pursue players to fill the holes in our squad which are more alarming.

No need for the casual sexism, Ports. I'm discustard.

I thought he had only played 6 first team games, do we really think he’s ready to slot straight in? I doubt it.

06 Jun 2018 11:17:25
Didn't say he'd slot straight in. Said I think he'll play more games then we think and by the end of the season I think he could find himself first choice FB. Left or Right!

Ajh. He won't be ready, the boy will need time, hope he is A good one for the future, he might get a handful of starts to prove himself.
I'd bet that he won't be starting the first game of the season.
And anyone that thinks he is going to be play8ng every game running up and down the wings putting in sweet crosses for lukkaku is deluded.
It just doesn't work like fantasy football, he will need time to settle but hope he makes it.

I watched some of Fred, guy seems to be able to make crazy passes behind the defence, I imagine Pogba and Lukaku would thrive of those passes. Dalot seems fast, very fast.

just bale and ronnie to come in now.

Leahy had you heard much of Alexander Arnold or joe Gomez 12 months ago, if you give a player a chance they some times work out for you if you don’t they will never work out for you.
