Right I'm a real Klaassen fan and by chance saw quite a bit of him with Ajax last season. He kind of looked like an all action Gary Speed type at times a captain fantastic if you will, maybe a bit more Barmby than Speed in terms of craft rather than getting well stuck in, but well capable of scoring 10 a season, though obviously the Dutch league is weak. Therefore I was pretty happy we signed him, now though I don't get why Koeman's signed him. He's a number 10 or was with Ajax, so as soon as we got Rooney I wasn't sure where that left him. I presumed with Ross sadly gone he and Davies would play behind a forward. Koeman has since said he'll have to fight for a place and also look to play as a right or left prong in a midfield (something like that can't remember the exact words), therefore I feel a bit sorry for the cat. He's played so far as if he's not sure where he's meant to be and if he gets picked endlessly ahead of the Davies, who's frankly one our best players at present irrespective of age, poor Davy is on a hiding to nothing. |
Koeman's a good manager like, not doubting that, but I don't overly get what he's thinking there. I just hope the lads given a fair crack, he's got talent, but I'm not convinced as to why he's been bought.
