It is impressive... but oddly his first touch can often be absolute garbage

His passing can often be wayward too (still miles better than e.g. Lade). That said, if first touch/passing were better, he wouldn't be playing for us right now.

I still can't figure out why he isn't already in Europe after this summer window, he's 100% ready to make the jump somewhere.

Did he face the same problem Taxi did, with Panama not being ranked high enough for him to get his visa?

Would love to hear the story because I still don't believe for a second that Armas actually went three weeks believing Connor Lade was the better player.

Only if he was looking to go to England. But he had suitors from France and Dutch teams. I am just glad he is here and hope he stays here for a while.
