You'll catch a few with that - nice one
You probably won't go wrong there :)
:-) happy for Walker.
Always rated him when way too many were having a go this summer. I know you did too.
He's fast becoming one of my favourite players.
Has he gone up a few levels the past few weeks or is it just me?
Blues the force ;)
Well, I also think he's a superb signing. His pace and workload is a huge factor for different tactical options.
I can see some resemblance to Raz: pace is the weapon, but missing ball control to some degree.
Moaning on a high level, I often don't like his decision making going forward.
I think his team mates around him should offer him clearer passing options.
When he is rushing forward he also should learn to pass early and use his great pace without the ball to go for a 1,2
instead of running into a packed defense and stop.
Maybe the problem for him is, that sometimes he even is too quick and has to wait for his team mates.
Pep should develop several definite moves rushing forward to be more clinical on fast breaks (which we are not, sadly).
It's also great when he is breaking through midfield on his own in pace, but the clinical pass doesn't follow.
Anyway, I am happy with Kyle but there is some room to improve. Great signing.
What I noticed straight away against Basel was the disparity in speed against LBs - he looks fresh or simply has been reminded to use his acceleration to create additional space with the ball. After the first 2 or 3 times he did this, you could see defenders not pressing him as tightly as say they did Delph. This is invaluable
The only thing really he could improve is the Zaba style run inside the fullback. Superb signing.
