Though we haven't bought many names in this current transfer window. we do have a lot of new faces in the the camp with Jose coming back, loanees returning, couple of buys and also- hopefully- youth being promoted.
Every now and then, we have that one player who stands out in a season with sheer brilliance and grace. who that is, is contentious, but i guess it's safe to say Mata- our little Spaniard-has been the front runner in the past couple of seasons(again, it depends upon each individual's perspective). we are now, in pre-season, and the new season is not that far.
I cant help but wonder who our 'stand out' player is gonna be this year. i spent quite some time on this and could draw many conclusions based on different factors. For me, it all came down to how jose would set us up to play and based on that, the one player that came to mind was kevin de bruyne. He just checks all the boxes in jose's list. He's focused, hardworking and also i see in him a little gerrard, with a hint of trickery--which is the kind of player jose was yearning to have during his last stint-- which is why i think he's going to be one of our most improved(meaning bettering bremen's show)/stand out players, along with the usual suspects, this season under mourinho . And more so, versatility is one of the perks of having him in the squad. With the world cup around the corner he'll have that extra impetus to do well.
Who do you guys think will have breakout season or a standout season?
