    Tyler made a bigger deal out of that than he did when we won the league.

  3. He was coming inside & knocking the ball about when he was playing under Vieira though, as well as getting forward.

    It shouldn't be a problem for him. His judgement has been total shit since he got back.
     
  4. Pity.

    Heavy first touch, poor decision making when tackling and losing the flight of the ball in dangerous areas. Needs to settle down and get the basics right and go from there.

    Absolutely concur, nerves maybe or simply trying too hard rather than playing his game
     
  7. He needs to find a top performance in this pre season.

    Understandable, he’s too good to be a bench warmer, which is what he’ll be more often than not..
     
  9. I don't understand why.

    Did you expect them to come out gung ho with 6 upfront not bothering to track back just because it’s a friendly? It serves no purpose for them to play any differently, it’s good practice for both teams. a side like Wolves will always be camped back for the majority of the game against a side like us, it gets them prepared for it and a good physical workout chasing balls and concentrating for 90 minutes and it’s better for us in that that’s the kind of thing we come up against weekly

    That’s the way Pep predominantly uses our fullbacks they all have to learn it if they want to play here, walker and Danilo were signed having a reputation for bombing down the line on the overlap too and we rarely see it. Also, I suspect Peps fully aware of his capabilities in attack and doesn’t need to see him do it in a friendly, instead he needs him to get as much practice in learning the inverted position as he’s shown these past two games he needs a hell of a lot of it before he can play for us there in a competitive game.
