Zapping Goal! soccer club AS Saint-Etienne: The question of the week
really not convinced
“ASSE wanted to take its time to sign a striker. We can understand it. As often, we will only judge on the results. Still, there is reason to be disappointed with the names lying in the recruits column. I want to believe in a revival of the former Bordeaux, Bastiais and Caennais but still… I understand the legitimate disappointment of the supporters that we have dreamed of with Jean-Philippe Mateta (Crystal Palace), Serhou Guirassy (Stade Rennais ), Verdat Muriqi (Lazio from Rome) or even Bafétimbi Gomis (free) and who see the Rouennais land …
Enzo Crivelli is a huge bet. A relaunch player who comes out of almost two years of offensive desert (2 goals scored over the period). As much as I was not convinced by the Robert Béric track, returning from his pre-retirement in MLS, I still have the feeling that the Slovenian could have scored 7-8 goals for the Greens. I don’t have the same impression with Enzo Crivelli, whom I see more as a defensive mover rather than a goalscorer.
The Mercato des Verts ends for me in a fishtail. The stated ambition to give everything to save the club has never really gone beyond the stage of words. In my eyes, only Paul Bernardoni and Eliaquim Mangala live up to the promises on paper. It is really time that ASSE was sold to leaders who are a little more efficient and a little less adept at “pizza powder”. »
He’s a mover, but his stats are scary and his adductors are hissing
“Like Alexandre, I would have preferred a return from Gomis, or even Beric. And I wonder about the timing of signing Crivelli. ASSE therefore waited so long to finally sign this player… Couldn’t it have been possible to enlist him earlier, when he was in great difficulty at Antalyaspor, who terminated his loan? ASSE was targeting Mateta, Guirassy, it will have Crivelli. However, the profile of the former Bastiais does not displease me. We know he’s a warrior. He will play muscles in the opposing surfaces. With him, it will no longer be so useless to make crosses, and we can hope that the other offensive players will benefit from his undermining work.
For the maintenance mission, Crivelli can be an interesting weapon, and it will be difficult for him to do worse than his two predecessors, Abi and Krasso, not to mention poor Ramirez since he will have hardly ever played. What still worries me a little is this discomfort (adductor) which prevented him from starting against Montpellier (3-1) and these are his stats. Because Crivelli hasn’t scored for more than a year and only scored 2 goals in a year and a half after his successful debut in Turkey. Another player in bad shape to revive, therefore. But in winter, especially with the limited means at its disposal, what 9 could ASSE really claim? »
🚨 BUTASSE ALERT! 🚨
Irreproachable against the MHSC, the Greens must continue their maintenance operation on Sunday against Clermont! 💪

“Enzo Crivelli, good idea or bad idea? »: this is the question of our debate of the week at ASSE… Alexandre Corboz is skeptical. Laurent Hess considers that the striker has a rather interesting profile…
