It's always relevant. It's fucking weird.
My reply wasnt meant to be aggressive, just drawing attention to you saying factors other than playing time have an impact which is rather obvious. I completely understand why we didn’t sign him and see exactly the same issues with Trincao - he needs to play to develop and he could well be on the bench a lot, though he plays a position where subs get plenty of time. When we play two in CM substitute opportunities are less as Moutinho and Neves have been superb so Vitinha would have got nowhere near the time he has at Porto.Not sure why you've felt the need to go so aggressive with the response but I'll have one more attempt at adult conversation before giving up.
Everyone seems to be making out like Vitinha was a no brainer signing, generally with the power of hindsight and this seasons form. I'm merely trying to offer the view that there are lot of variables in a players performance and development that mean it's far from being so clear cut.
Is Vitinha a better player now because he's getting more minutes or is he playing more minutes because he's become a better player over the summer? Is he in fact no better than he was last season but getting more minutes because the competition for places isn't as strong or he's simply a better fit for what that team needs? Maybe they've done better analysis of his game to identify areas for improvement, maybe they've got coaches who've found a better way to translate things to him and opened his mind to faults in his game?
There are too many variables to be definite, Wolves could have signed him back last month and there's no guarantee you'd get the same performance from his as Porto have so far this season.
Just seems like people want something to whinge against the club, Shi or whoever else again for a bit and he's flavour of the month.
This post makes me pretty uncomfortable to be honest. Really unpleasant and shouldn't be tolerated on the forum IMO.Wasn't it you that got outed as being a meek little mouse by someone who knew you irl? Awfully agro on here, especially for someone who apparently doesn't even support this club. Wonder what's got you so wound up, too timid to vent your frustrations in real life?
Feel we've been mugged off there. Would rather have had the cash, but of course Barca have no cash.
Lets hope Trincao proves me wrong over the rest of the season.
We're essentially making a slight profit on what we paid for Adama of around £7m. That'll probably be offset by Trincao's wages though.A straight swap looks poor business unless Trincao steps up a level before the end of the season. Based on his performances to date it’s like getting £15m for Traore.
