  1. What is Dan James good at?

    When he first joined I remember watching from the stands and being amazed at how fast he was. Decent fullbacks like Ricardo Perreira couldn't get near him. He was rapid and players often brought him down - I also remember some penalties he won at Chelsea & Norwich. For whatever reason, I agree...
  2. Fred | 2020/21 Performances

    MOTM for me. Do we have any stats on how many times he won the ball back? He's perfect for these games when we are set up to be compact and transition quickly on the counter attack. All his best performances that stick in my memory are against PSG, Chelsea, Liverpool etc.
  3. Aaron Wan-Bissaka | 2020/21 Performances

    He thrives in games like that. Reminded me of his performance away at City in the league (vs Sterling). Honestly not sure if I can recall a better fullback who is better in 1v1 situations. We are talking about 2 of the 5 best players in the world and he was comfortable. Compare this performance...
  4. Alex Telles | 2020/21 Performances

    Not had a fullback who can whip a ball in like that for a long time. Can see this adding another dimension to our game against teams who defend deep. Telles to Cavani could be a great combo
  5. Our second goal vs Newcastle

    I think it just about eclipses Bruno's counter attack goal away at Brighton - mind you I'm a sucker for the ball going in off the post! Cannot underestimate how good that first touch is from Bruno when taking the ball whilst sprinting. Especially after the 2nd half hadn't really been going his way
  6. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    I've defended him so many times on here over the years. On his day he's our best player and I stand by that. However... The "performances" so far have been nothing short of a disgrace. Unfit, no interest in defensive duties, even his passing, which is usually Pogba's best asset, has been...
  7. Paul Pogba | 2020/21 Performances

    I agree with those saying he looks unfit. Was glaringly obvious vs Palace and Brighton (hence the early sub) and even last night he was puffing after one sprint. The lack of training / pre season because of the virus has set him back a few weeks. I'm a big fan of his (still our best player IMO)...

  9. Victor Lindelöf | 2019/20 Performances

    To be honest putting the 2nd goal aside. He was hugely at fault for the 1-1 goal too for me- it's just classic Lindelof "defending" by allowing the attacker to stroll down the touchline while he runs alongside him without putting any pressure on or trying to tackle. If football was non-contact...
