I swear cutrone is the new eastwood.
I can't remember a clamour for a striker to start/come on since freddy. The everton match thread, and verdict thread are riddled with it.
not sure where it has come from. for me his only selling point is he isn't silva, as I haven't really seen any other reason for him being put forward.

That’s more than enough reason.

Apart from that is more than enough reason, Fabio just hasn't any endearing features at all right now. A lone striker needs to hold the ball up, be strong, get past defenders and be a threat on goal. Nope, he hasn't got one of those features.
As most people now realise, even the ones who defended him, he is not ready for the premier league. Sure, when he's a stone heavier, faster and fitter he might be, but not now. Cutrone is the only up front striker we have that has some experience in the premier league.

Maybe he won't be the answer, but Nuno has to give him a good couple of matches to assess him. 10 mins at the end of a game when the opposition is locked up for a win is not assessing him.

Playing Fabio right now is like playing a WR who can run and get in good positions, then when the ball comes it either hits him on the head, or it drops through his hands...

To be fair some may take Freddy over Fabio on current form!

Assuming Adama is available, and the other absentees still injured I would line up like this (for some reason I can't centre it, and it is annoying me)

Rui
Semedo Coady Saiss RAN
Neves Dendoncker
Traore Gibbs-White Neto
Cutrone
That's the team.
