Has he singed yet?
I don't under stand people writing off strikers (ie Awoniyi) early on with a new club. Look at Haaland--he's an incredible talent, and people are suddenly comparing him to Andy Carroll after the Community Shield. Which is completely bonkers. If Pep buys Haaland and then uses him as he used Jesus and Aguero, he's an idiot. And Pep is no idiot. City will adjust their tactics and Haaland will flourish. Pep' systems are involved and it will take some time.
Yup, looking for an idea as to how the season will go and how players will fare through a charity shield match is a bit pointless. It's a glorified friendly.

I think it takes time to match up a striker with the style of player. Both have to be adjusted.

Looking at the Community Shield, not for that long I must admit, it looked as if they had forgotten Haarland was there and were so enjoying that ponderous intricate inter-passing they so enjoy. I'm sure the long through balls will start to fly soon and he'll find his range.

Same with our strikers. All will become clear soon.
