In my view, it's not about what it lacks or doesn't lack per se, but surpassing the 2001. Now don't get me wrong, I love the 2016-Present XI mids, but they're not perfect, just as the 2001 was not perfect.What would you think this next release would lack?
We know the 2019 will have the white rand on the patent, but the red still appears too dark in my eyes. Additionally, the OVERALL shape of the new XI just looks off. Patent a touch too high, toe box a touch too round, etc. The overall shape of the 2001 is better in my view, also the quality of the patent was better.
I wouldn't argue with anyone that prefers the 2019 to the 2001, but the notion that it's not even close is silly to me.
