Well as stand out as this performance is, you're not telling me he has been poor for the past year surely? He hasn't been starting regular is my point. This is his first free run of games he's had in a long while. I'm also aware it's only one game but that's kind of the point, it's what those: "he's not a striker"/"Rodri's not good enough" know it alls do all the time. I wasn't going to say anything either but I think it's times like this that people should reflect on their hastiness to write players off the most. Maybe that pic was overkill, it just made me chuckle when I found it. I'm pretty sure even the doubters would be happy to be proved wrong, as that will be better for the team.
