Top class against poor teams who don't put him under any pressure at all.
You are right... Like Chelsea, Arsenal and Tothenham. Real poor teams. :)
He is a great player who is becoming used to football in a new country and league, following a difficult injury.
what like Chelsea spuds,arsenal to name afew.those little teams hey.
He appears to play better when sat deeper. I think he gets a bit lost in his role when Fernandinho is behind him and he is further up the pitch with either Silva or Kev.
As I’ve said on here before the guy is such an intelligent player. He’s class and not just against poor teams. And he’s not the only one in the team whose game has suffered on the rare occasions we’ve been put under real pressure or subjected to the high press.
Great game today.
What is the similarity about all these teams? they try to play football. They do not blitz you with super hard pressing and indeed some serious/dangerous challenges. He has good reason to be wary of that so i doubt @quiet_riot is criticizing him as a fair weather, just stating a fact such as it is. There are as you both note plenty of matches perfectly suited to him, he certainly has a place here. There are also matches where he is best kept as a sub to come and help control and dictate the tempo to a slightly tired oppo.
Better today. I still feel we need 1 more midfielder. But he has played his part.
Making a few on here eat their words with his last couple of performances , Germany my tip for the World Cup and he will be a big part of that , hope he continues at this level you never know his critics might just admit they have got it wrong , but it takes a big man to do that.
