The Open Thread/Daily Merengue is a place where you can discuss anything and everything related to football. Feel free to discuss the topics presented here, or start your very own discussions! The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods you’d totally treat to pizza over movies: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou (AKA KFZ), Juninho and, of course... yours truly.

Yeah... it’s another slow news day...

So let’s do some reminiscing!

Would YOU Be Ok IF We Signed Vlahovic?

Look, going into the season with only Joselu as a striker, doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. I appreciate the man, he’s a very good striker, but him being the only option at 9 doesn’t exactly allow for peaceful sleep. We need somebody who’s gonna guarantee that some of the gazillion chances we create (I mean, there’s no shortage of creative genius in the squad) actually meet the net. If Joselu is that man, he’s still not going to play 60 games. Can Vlahovic be the guy? Perhaps he is a solid addition. Not my pick. I’ve voiced my opinion before, that Kane is the preferable option. Scoring prowess, link-up, good switches, in his prime... He also aligns with Endrick’s timeline, which you-know-who doesn’t. But, at this point in time, would you add Vlahovic to the squad? Let us know in the comments.
