£25 million for Odsonne Edouard from Crystal Palace. £15 million for Alfredo Morelos, what's your thoughts on this fellow Bears?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2020 12:49:55
funny that, my mate from London says that in England they believe Morelos is way better than Edouard who they believe has not much skill and can't score at european level like Morelos can. He believes the pricing should be the other way around.

06 Jul 2020 13:01:17
Whatever striker has scored more goals should reflect their price tag.

06 Jul 2020 13:03:16
Bria bear does you cousin speak for the full of England?

Can’t see him going to palace either.

Imho Edouard is a better player than fredo and I can say that because I don’t walk around with blue tinted specs on like some.

06 Jul 2020 13:18:30
If Morelos could stay disciplined and do it over a whole season then yeah, on his day Morelos is unbelievable, Edouard is a more composed finisher and is reliable. Unfortunately Morelos has devalued due to form and reliability. If he stays that could change in the next six months with some good form and behaviour but it’s a gamble.

06 Jul 2020 13:36:13
Morelos is the better goalscorer.
Édouard is the better footballer.
I'd rather have the goalscorer. 👍.

06 Jul 2020 13:43:33
I tend to mostly agree with KJA9 on the morelos/ edouard debate, if i'm being honest! I think edouard is the better all round footballer, but i think morelos is the better goalscorer and IMHO it doesn't matter who these 2 very good strikers go on to play with, i believe that morelos will outscore edouard if not every season, definitely the majority of the time. When both their football careers have ended calculating in the games they've played in, i would fully expect morelos to have scored more goals than edouard! 👌.

06 Jul 2020 13:54:35
I like probably most of you played for many years and as a striker. You can see it in players who are natural goal (their movement and thoughts are only of scoring, not looking good, the animal to always score) scorers and others who rely on huge service. Morelos does not need as much service as Edouard and in my opinion a far better striker.

06 Jul 2020 14:37:19
If you compare both players on chances take and missed, Edourd is the better player, as I said in another post, I think Alfie has missed too many gilt edged chances, again, jus my opinion, it doesn't make him a bad player.

06 Jul 2020 15:35:42
You are in denial if you think Morelos is a better striker than Edouard (at this stage of their careers) . Firstly, they are totally different in style. Morelos works harder and can bully defenders more than Edouard. But on the goalscoring, I think Morelos is an instinctive striker, but he lacks composure in front of goal, something Edouard has lots of. If Morelos had better composure in front of goal he could have scored double the amount of goals he has done. How many guilt edged sitters has he missed? He gets into good areas really well so if he could nurture the finishing he could be some striker for sure.

06 Jul 2020 15:43:44
FruitBear, we are in total agreement here.

06 Jul 2020 16:06:20
I think that's s very true, well written post by yourself FruitBear 👌! Can you imagine how even better defoe would be, if he could bully defenders like morelos can? Also take it the other way, imagine with the style morelos has, he had the finishing ability of defoe! Morelos would be unplayable 👌.

06 Jul 2020 16:11:28
Coops that's a silly statement. So if 1 ends up in english premier league and 1 ends up staying in scotland I know which one would score more goals.

06 Jul 2020 16:04:32
I agree Fruitbear that Morelos and Edouard are different strikers. However they are both good strikers and they both miss chances. For example, when they played FC Copenhagen in Europe this year, Edouard missed a glut of gilt-edged chances in the first leg of the tie. They would probably have went through the tie had he taken those chances.

06 Jul 2020 17:12:00
SGL it depends on what teams the strikers go to as to who will out score who.

Fruitbear great post.

Bris bear take of the blue tinted specs.

06 Jul 2020 17:25:08
Fauldhoose bear, i'm hypothetically speaking on the assumption that both morelos and edouard will move on to play in better leagues mate. It stands to reason if one of them remained in scotland and the other moved to the english premier league,
the one in the weaker scottish league would indeed score most goals, that's a given!

06 Jul 2020 17:38:38
Goal scorer vs Footballer.

Morelos - 12 goals in 26 league games
Edouard - 21 goals in 27 league games

Who is the goal scorer again?

Edouard all day long! Morelos is great on his day, he can bully an entire back 4 on his own. But his finishing is poor and his attitude stinks. Plays football like a spoilt little brat, not an elite professional.

06 Jul 2020 18:14:06
Edouard doesn't get sent off morelos does, Edouard is much better under pressure, no question I'd rather have Edouard.

06 Jul 2020 21:47:32
Exactly zikos it’s not even a contest but some people can’t bring themselves to praise other teams players no matter what.

06 Jul 2020 22:29:42
Eduard is a good player, no doubt about that. He should be he cost over £9m.
Morelos cost just over £1m.
If we're looking at stats here's some.
Morelos, last 3 seasons
Games 137
Goals 77
Assists 29

Eduard, last 3 seasons
Games 129
Goals 60
Assists 31.

Think it's a bit more of a contest than some on here think 😉.

07 Jul 2020 00:24:06
Totally agree Mrgrumpy. Your figures are more of a true comparison, not just one year as above.

07 Jul 2020 01:05:07
Ok Mrgrumpy - Can you do the stats again and show league games.

Btw Edouard cost £2M more than Kent - I know which investment I would rather have made.

07 Jul 2020 05:49:29
Why zikos? I included ALL games both players have played in. Am not disputing Eduard is a good player, simply pointing out so is Morelos.
Not sure where Kent comes in to the discussion but yes Eduard certainly seems a better investment than Kent.

07 Jul 2020 08:51:45
The reason I’m interested in the league stats is because that’s the premier competition. Some people on here are of the opinion that Morelos had a great season, saying he scored 30 goals when in fact he had a pretty poor season scoring only 12 league goals. I don’t even think he was in the top 5 scorers which for the No1 striker at an old firm club is shocking.

Also the reason I mentioned Kent was because it was mentioned that Edouard should be good because he cost £9M. Well Kent cost £7M and so far has been rubbish.

Personally think that when Morelos is on his game he is a great player but his attitude stinks and he can’t manage himself over a full season. If we can’t replace him with better this season then we need some more depth so that when he is going through these spells that we can take him out the team and then his erratic form won’t impact on the team and results as much.

07 Jul 2020 16:07:58
Morelos was having a great season up until the winter break. He scored incredibly important goals in Europe, the winner to get us into the group stages, goals against feynoord, Porto, young boys.
In the premiership he scored 12 goals in 26 games.
Definitely agree we need more strength in depth, goal wise throughout the team.
