    He looked really unfit at the U21 Tournament - 2 months later still looks match unfit despite having a proper pre-season with bayern :houllier:

    This. At least let him settle before judging the player.

    Although Sanches may not have been match fit he would certainly have been physically fit. The difference being a player maybe liable to make more mistakes, not focusing as well, & running out of speed after awhile. What was worrying here was that the player, despite being hyped as some world beater, could hardly string two passes together & looked out of his depth, which is worrying. Paul Clement or any manager, is hardly going to play someone just on his reputation & must have had good reason to think he would be okay. Perhaps he was in training. The way he stood around was that he thought the intensity & pace of the game would pass him by, & could play his normal game.

    Couldn't reply yesterday due to posts limit. Sorry about that.

    It's still a mental issue though, imho. If players are more encouraged to use pace in EPL, any player has all the physical conditions to do it, doesn't matter where does it comes from.
    And that's why I said pre-season is more than enough for players to adapt to those conditions. In Lindelof's case, there's some excuse since he only do a part of the pre-season, so it's a bit harder for him.
    Now, if you're refering to the overloaded games schedule, than I can agree with that.

    It is mental I agree. Some players don't like the increased physical contact and lack of protection from the refs.

    Lindelof did the whole preseason I think. He certainly got a lot of game time in the US. Preseason won't prepare you for the PL style though, the games tend to be more open as players want to get fit primarily.

    I think it is another kind of physicality in the EPL as in the Bundesliga - that I do not doubt because the way the teams play. There is more pressing in the Bundesliga etc. - maybe more endurance - whereas you need longer sprints against extreme fast players. And I think the players in the EPL bulk up a lot more than they do in the Bundesliga. I just would say that it is different.

    Sanches... he is a young player that still has to develop. I think he is at a very important point in his career. The point when it gets decided that you just will make a squad player or if you can get to bigger heights. Your surrounding sugar coats you and you already feel like a star - but actually that is the time when you have to work the hardest, when you have to have the biggest discipline even when you know have the money to "reward you with an easy life". The press tells that he had discipline problems at Bayern, too. That he e.g. missed a flight after 2 free days in Portugal and missed training sessions etc. He had problems learning the language (and his English is not better as the players had problems to communicate with him in English, too) - but he did not work hard to learn it either...

    Mehmet Scholl was joking in interviews that it is important for a football player to find the right girl - and finding the wrong one can ruin careers. Maybe it is not just about "women" but about the right surrounding and the right advisors. I am not sure Sanches has that...

    I'm watching him against Spurs in the first half, and he looks like a kid playing men football at times, which is basically correct. Glimpses of his raw potential now and there and his physical attributes stood out in a couple of duels, out muscling opponents. Shades of our Anderson in his game, only Ando was more talented in my opinion.

    He's so poor defensively. He just stands there when Spurs have the ball, out of position, letting his man go wherever he wants. Such a liability.

    Honestly top flight football in England and Germany is just too much for him. Playing in a lower division would do him good or at a league with slower pace. He is terrible.
