I am not convinced that he has got it wrong Gonzo , ok Anderson has not lived up to all the hype or lack of it , many of us me included wondered why we were spending £40m on someone many had never heard of or seen . But their have been snippets of play when we have seen what he is capable of . Now I think if we had players on the same wavelength and skill level as him ie Lanzini - Diangana ( yes I think he is good enough from what I have seen ) we would have a different player . Not sure though what is up with his dead ball technique though . Maybe his personality doesnt allow him the confidence to flourish as the main man the star player .
Well at the point he was signing I spoke to somebody who has followed his career and he said that Anderson was very inconsistent and occasionally brilliant. I asked if £40m was too much and my mate said that he'd look £100m on occasion and £1m on others.
Sounds about right , and Pellegrini must have known this , so why spend £40m on him maybe Pellegrini thinks he can get him playing consistently .
