Not quite the finished article, but could come good in the future.
That was the assessment that one football expert gave in regards to our recent signing of Mikel San Jose.
Spanish journalist Guillem Balague put together a thread on social media in which he outlined exactly what Blues fans can expect to see from him. There were some positive notes, and some stuff that he needed to improve on:
He’s been brought because he can play CB and CM, and he does it with same level of intelligence. Time will determine where he fits better. Not in fear of the physical game, but his calmness and quality short passing might make him more suited for midfield. It is to be determined

Blues will sign ____ more players this window?
Now this is just one of the tweets and I urge you to read the whole thing for yourself, but just that one snapshot does give you the sense we could be onto something.
I said when we first signed him that I felt that he could really add something to this team, and whilst there are obviously some understandable weaknesses in there, like adjusting to things in English football, this analysis just makes me all the more confident that we’ve managed to find a very good player here.
What about you? Does Balague’s assessment of San Jose make you more or less excited about the prospect of bringing him in?
