Mr Smith's latest activity

  • Mr Smith replied to the thread Iniesta vs Silva.
    The fact that Silva was displaced wasn't reflective of him being a weak link, so much as it was him being obsolete. They didn't need Silva as they already had more than enough finesse in the side, they needed Pedro's directness. I think Iniesta...
  • Mr Smith replied to the thread Gaming FIFA 21.
    Can honestly say I feel this is the worst Fifa in 10 years. Chaotic in the worst way. What's more, they've turned career mode into being about training with the occasional match thrown in. I've never bought into Ultimate Team, so I think this...
  • 3 points is 3 points, but hard not to feel like this team is less than the sum of its parts. We have to improve massively if we want to be within a shout of top 4.
  • That's damning.
  • Me too. I get it in the big games when we risk getting overrun in midfield, but it's not acceptable against a team like West Brom. No reason Bruno and VdB can't play together with one holder.
  • Disagree completely, the rules need to change because VAR has changed the margin of error. Offside is a perfect example. The spirit of the law was to ensure the attacker doesn't get an unfair advantage by being ahead of play, but when you're...
  • Massive let-off, could have gone either way that.
  • He's not wrong. I don't have time for Owen mostly but he talks some sense about strikers. I wouldn't hook Martial as I don't think he's been terrible and his link-up play adds a lot. But his lack of ruthlessness in front of goal is a problem. I...
  • West Brom only looking to defend. No reason not to drop the double pivot and add another attacking player for the second half. I will be critical if Ole is slow to make changes and force the issue.
  • I think you're projecting. I see nothing wrong with his body language
  • If there was one thing I could change about the way we currently play, it's how far Rashford and Martial are away from each other. They have the best understanding of any two players in our team but are rarely close enough to exchange passes...
  • Disappointed still no start for VdB. Feel like he could easily play as one of the two deeper midfielders.
  • :lol:
  • I like this, but don't think everyone of that front three will play. Isn't Rashford a doubt for this one?
  • Sounds like Tuanzebe might be playing against West Brom with Jones out, Bailly not ready, and Lindelof a doubt.
