Yep I agree with all of that entirely. At risk of getting pelters; he plays similiar to Gazza Bazza (sideways and backwards) even in the final third, will always seek the easier option. I just think we need someone more mobile and willing to forge ahead. Let's not forget, he has been culpable for a couple of goals with sloppy passes this past season. He got away with it because the defender(s) in question took the flak!!Gundogan doesn't press shit. He can't run. He's hopeless at tracking runners and can't tackle.
People assume because he plods around the centre circle, he must automatically be better defensively than Bernado Silva for example. He isn't.
Bernado presses better, runs more, is more aggressive. The only thing Gundogan does better is stand still and play it square. No wonder his pass completion is so high, he slows everything down and completely stifles our tempo by constantly going backwards and square.
And out of possession, he's arguably our worst player.
