I was thinking this too but I like to believe that with an exceptional CF we could be a powerhouse of a team again. It's really small margins at the very top. I'd dare to say that if you put Griezmann in our team we'd be better than them.
Slightly delusional and unfair as Athletico are always going thrive as long as they have a semi half decent forward upfront - hell even Giroud could probably work wonders for them in Europe - but our game absolutely depends on having a top striker. I'm not sure if a world class striker will make up for our tactical naivety but having an average one isn't doing much for us so we probably should give it a bash.
