I'm willing to review my position on Congerton's quality after the Castagne and Ünder signings, very happy with the business so far.

This! The 2 signings so far appear good business. If we could add a defender it's a good window, a striker and amazing. After our first performance things looking more promising.

This is the most exciting signing we've made since Tielemans and possibly even more exciting that him! The reason is that we've never truly replace Riyad Mahrez who was one of the best ever players to play for us. Even though he left with sour grapes, he was the first real flair player with quality we had since probably Muzzy Izzet. Our team is very good but we struggle against teams that play a low block and force us to play it sideways all day. Against such teams, that's when we need a bit of magic to make things happen.

 

Please lets get behind the lad and give him a chance! Players like this are going to be inconsistent - even Mahrez had plenty of off games. But they can be the difference maker many other times.

 

Welcome to the club and very excited to see what he can do. Incredibly he's younger than Gray too, which means not only is he good now, but he can become a really top player if he buckles down. If he's anything like Soyuncu, we are in for a treat!

 

 

We must be patient though. Even Mahrez went through long periods of having very little impact but when he was on it he was unplayable. 

 

I can see him being rotated along with Perez, Albrighton and Barnes, unless he does truly explode on to the scene.

I'd be surprised if he doesn't hit the ground running, as long as he is clear of injuries. Look at how many chances Harvey Barnes gets every game.. if Under gets that many he will bury a lot of them. Gray, Perez and Albrighton don't get as many chances as Barnes because they aren't used to playing the role / don't understand it. Gray and Albrighton are used to being traditional wingers and Perez is a central support striker. Under is a more conventional inside right forward that is used to playing as an attacker in a 433 so makes the correct runs and spots the passes to make.

 

The big issue will be getting his fitness up and working as a team player. Perez often has very mediocre games, but in terms of contributing to our forward press, he's actually excellent at that role. But what we are after is a player like Salah or Mane who not only contribute to the forward press but once they get the ball, know how to hit the back of the net too. And there's a very good chance, we've just signed such a player!

Yes, but there is no official announcement of that, so does that mean there is no option or do they just not announce that detail?

Roma confirmed we had an option in their statement

..can't see why he would be rotated, unless it was a Carabao cup game!!!

The aforementioned players can not match what he brings, the person most likely to benefit from this would be Barnes, to give him something to match up to. If Cengis is expressing himself Barnes might just feed off the same energy and bring the composure into his game which he is at present lacking.

If both of them come on song and Vardy tunes in... :vardy:

Apparently it is now an option rather than a requirement to buy after the loan - Rudders has played a blinder. 

So we get first option? 

 

When we signed Youri we loaned him and it was only his loyalty that meant he signed permanently. IIRC Man Utd also bid for him. His price also inflated £10m from the excellent form he showed on loan. 

 

If we have first option with a set price then yes, Rudders has played a blinder. 

 

If it's similar to the Tielemans deal then it's a bit risky.

This is really important as well. He's on a loan and if we want him to succeed, have to get behind him. Especially if we want to make this a long-term thing and for him to succeed should he sign permanently. Can't be on his back after a couple of mistakes!

Cengo Unchained would be a brilliant headline after a good performance.

That's the Matchday Film Cover sorted for his home debut!
