Ridiculously good today. Getting progressively better with every game. Unbelievable talent - what a signing.
Head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch today.

Ridiculous talent. He almost gets better every time he plays. Just hoping we’ve definitely signed him.

It’s getting fairly close to the point where you don’t put it down to good form anymore, you just put him in the mix with the best players in the league if he keeps this up for another month or 2. He’s been absolutely sensational. 19 PL games, 15 goal involvements, all while working his fucking socks off all game long and holding the ball up and making excellent decisions to keep hold of it and progress play in build up. Him, Kane and Son… we’re really spoilt right now and we need to keep working to bring the entire team to their level

Some of the stuff he was doing today as outrageous. Some of the touches feints and runs.

He didn't look all that when we signed him but he is class. Missing out on Diaz has done us a right favour.

Yeh. Kulusevski is 3 years younger, a better fit for us profile wise and I’d probably argue the better player. Diaz is electric but Kulusevski is more decisive in the final third. I’ve been critical of Paratici but to be fair to him Romero and Kulusevski are both probably 70-90m players now.

Yeah we can trigger it. Also think it might become an obligation if we get cl again this season
Oh what a shame….???
Seriously talented player, I’ve seen more from him since he joined us than the lad Foden who no one shuts up about.
I can just imagine Kane and Son jokingly saying to eachother where on earth has kulu come from and why didn’t we have him six months earlier!

Bentancur goes under the radar as well. He's so brave on the ball and always wants it.

I hope the other signings we've made work out as good! Kane Kulu and Son is up there in the best forwards in the country.

Totally agree, said earlier that he had a good rep as a kid and he’s just fulfilling his earlier promise now. Just lucky it’s with us!

Love looking at the comments before we signed him that he wasn’t good enough or what we need lol the boy is perfect and (like Bentancur) it reminds us that we really don’t know as much as Conte and co. This is what makes me more comfortable with the Zaniolo talk too.
And the comments after his first few games too.

Deki is going to be very difficult for teams to get on top of.

It's not just his control, strength, or movement. It's that he is equally effective cutting back inside and going outside. His left foot is strong cutting back and either shooting far corner or crossing back post, and he can stand a player up and hit the line for cut backs. If an opposition want to make his game predictable they are going to have to double up to force him to do only one of those things. But they can only do that rarely, because they are already trying to double up on both Son and Kane. And when they've done all that doubling up, Sess is coming in late and unmarked.

Good luck!

You noticed it today. Kane was marked heavily, normally 2/3 players on him when he collected the ball.

But this meant kulusevski and Emerson on one side and sess on the other really took advantage of the space.

If son was on better form today it could have been a cricket score.

We are going to absolutely pummel some teams this season.

He’s a bit of a monster isn’t he. Powerful, direct, intelligent and with a magic left foot. They must be thinking what the fucks going on over in Turin.
