    Has some quality but didn’t influence games enough for me. May improve if we get better movement upfront

    The people saying ‘we’d be better if we got better players around him’ - Krovi is supposed to be the ‘better player’ around the other lads who would be better if we got ‘better players around them’

    Pass for me. He was alright when we were completely bereft of any creativity, but if we have aspirations of actually pushing the top 6 then we need better.

    Player who was an instrumental part of the team that finished 2nd in 2020 (46 appearances) considered not good enough for a team that finished 25 points off the playoffs in 2021 because 'his stats aren't good enough'.

    Meanwhile, a player already at Forest (Sow) who has managed to make just 47 appearances in 2 seasons, contributing a massive 2 assists, has, during that period, been deemed as a crucial part of the team if they are to be successful.

    Disingenuous Eric given that Sow is a destructive defensive midfielder and in my opinion rather good at it when we could actually get him on the pitch, he was never there to score or provide goals. He wasn’t the problem-we looked a much better team with him in their.
    Krovinovic, I’d have him back if the cost is sensible and that’s it. But we clearly need an upgrade on the other 2 members of the central midfield if Krovinovic is to thrive. Garner illustrated that perfectly. If we go into next season with Yates and Cafu in those berths we will have a problem if we are serious about promotion...

    "Never there to score or provide goals".

    There's 2 qualities we desperately need, as for the rest Sow brought us we could have from the lower league players imo.

    We need midfielders with all the attributes or we're going to continue to stagnate.

    Unfortunately players with all those attributes aren't going to be signing for a lower mid-table championship club.

    Even when we smashed our club transfer record to pieces we still only ended up with a very limited midfielder who couldn't tackle it his career depended on it... .

    Beggars can't be choosers.In an ideal world, every signing we're going to make is going to be top of the class,best of the best players we are going to get but sadly,reality dictates otherwise, Ch will have to make do with what he can get and do the best he can like every manager in the league.

    Sure and we also need midfielders that can tackle well, offer decent positional sense and move the ball quickly and efficiently to those that offer more threat...Kante doesn't score many (10 in 192 before you ask) but he's one hell of a player and was MOM in the CL final for me just doing the simple stuff and knitting the Chelsea side together.

    There aren't many Kantes languishing in L1 because they don't bag a hatful....

    Sorry Erik - my post was about him playing as our 10. If he’s brought in to play as 8 then I’ll feel differently about it.

    Wouldnt be too quick to dig him out for lack of goals or creativity because it never felt like he was given the platform. Looked to be fulfilling a brief of constant supply liner to wide men.

    Always looked after the ball, solid & tidy in posession & think he has the through ball if anyone chose to make a decent run. Think we looked a far better team with him in it.

    Id certinly want more than Carvalho & Johnson in the role, so Krovinovic is a viable candidate assuming we have the money.

    I noted many posters who saw him play when he first arrived were over the moon with his ability.

    Now apparently he's not very good.

    How are the mighty fallen.

    You always get that Vals, probably with all supporters but defo ours.

    The reality soon rears its ugly head.

    I remember Mark Warburton getting booed for subbing off Zach Clough in his first game in charge

    Initial reactions mean nothing

    It depends how you define a "shot"

    Having a wild flash at goal from 35 yards might technically count as a shot, but in the real world isn't

    It's not me defining the shot, it's the statisticians and I believe the same metrics are applied to every team

    Apparently Benfica want to sell him, and want €8m for him.



    I quite like Krovinovic, but that is an absolutely mental fee.

    Default Re: Filip Krovinovic

    Is it really that shocking for a club to publicly over value a player they're looking to sell? I'm sure they know they won't get 8m for him, but its better to start obscenely high and let buyers haggle you down. I can see them getting 4-5m for him and i imagine they'll be happy with that

    £8 mill with only a year left on his contract?
    How about they give us £5 million and Krovi and they get Carvalho back?

    Not convinced Krovi is worth half that figure even if he had many years on his contract left.

    Neat on the ball but end product quite limited.

    He's a £2.5m player in my opinion.

    And Bart-Williams signed for that fee 25 years ago...

    That was the figure in my head too.
