  1. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    Yeah, looking at those names, it’s not a strong area for England. I don’t think any of those names are actually performing at Maguire’s level and suspect he’s being judged to a different standard. All out attack looks the way forwards but in doubt that’s Southgate’s style!
  2. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    Has Keane actually been any good this season? Our much derided defence has conceded less goals than Everton in more matches. It’s a little concerning for England, even if you agree with Rio, that the next best option is from a team lower down the table, with a worse defence.
  3. No.1 for next season - De Gea or Henderson?

    . He’s got a negative expected save per goal percentage though, just above Ramsdale on that stat (15th out of 21 keepers with sufficient stats).
  4. No.1 for next season - De Gea or Henderson?

    What are you basing your views on of him being overrated though? I obviously didn’t watch all Sheff United’s games last season but when I did he was extremely impressive. If you look at a list of the top premier league keepers last season he’d be in pretty much all the lists. He’s also looked...
  5. No.1 for next season - De Gea or Henderson?

    The difference is that Henderson was arguably the best keeper in the premier league last season. There is no way that anyone should be able to form a judgement that he isn’t good enough currently. What I’ve seen this season is a keeper who started nervously but has grown into his role in the...
  6. David De Gea | 2020/21 Performances

    Nice post. On the last part, Henderson looks a lot more comfortable playing out from the back than De Gea. I thought that was going to be a weakness for Henderson based on prior comments re Sheff Utd and his league debut but it actually looks a real strength and is also an obvious weakness for...
  7. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    I don’t think heading it back the way it came was possible. He was stretching for it and couldn’t get a full head on it.With hindsight, the best option would probably have been to head it backwards and out for another corner. However, in all honesty, I’m more concerned that ASM was standing on...
  8. Rashford and Martial are a problem

    They both have 6 assists in the league (as do Cresswell and Digne), so it’s wrong on both counts. Cresswell and Digne don’t have more assists than Rashford and neither does Son.
  9. Victor Lindelöf | 2020/21 Performances

    Is Almiron even quick? I don’t recall him looking fast previously. I know Lindelof is relatively slow but he got horribly exposed in that incident.
  10. Daniel James | 2020/21 Performances

    I thought he was relatively poor today but kept working and got a goal. He shouldn’t be starting league matches for us very often but Chelsea away would actually be one he might do a decent job. Absolutely vital we sort out the right wing position over the Summer though.
  11. Rashford and Martial are a problem

    Which players at lesser teams do have 28 goals and assists this season then? I’d love us to sign a right sided one if you can identify one.
  12. David De Gea | 2020/21 Performances

    Scholes just said he should have done better with the goal, which echoes my thoughts watching it at the time. A couple of other questionable moments as well. Just no longer gives the sense of confidence that Henderson has offered in recent matches. This really should have been a match that...
  13. Manchester United vs Newcastle United

    Am I being harsh in thinking De Gea should have saved that? Poor header from Maguire as well.
  14. Premier League Gameweek 25

    Why did that require about 10 reviews? Lingard was miles onside and the other player didn’t interfere. Annoys me when they take so long analysing that type of situation when they give incidents like the WBA goal against us a cursory glance.
  15. Cavani, Hit or Miss?

    He’s done well as a backup striker but isn’t at the level Martial was at last season. Not his fault though that Martial has had an awful season and Cavani has therefore become our first choice. Hit.
