I think thats his best asset. The problem is a lot of the other stuff. Like some of his choice in passing. Or even his positioning. Seen him get caught out so many times and im not sure if its concentration or not.Pleased to see him get some minutes. I know he's not a great wing back but I have a soft spot for AWB. He's had some outstanding games for us from a defensive pov, I remember this game against PSG for example:
There are alot of areas in his game that's lacking for the role he's playing. But when it comes to sliding tackles, defending with your body and 1 on 1, I think he's excellent.
There's a good player in there and in certain games there is a use case for him. Just look at how well he does against Mbappe and Neymar in that game.
No I completely agree with everything you're saying there. Even raheem sterling awb always used to have him in his pocket most games.I think thats his best asset. The problem is a lot of the other stuff. Like some of his choice in passing. Or even his positioning. Seen him get caught out so many times and im not sure if its concentration or not.
Also the one thing I hate is how he jogs (either jogging back or just seems to stroll out to a player which basically nullifies him)
His small complaint was he didn’t like controlling footballs.
I think you need to open your eyes if you struggle to see this badly. AWB is a completely failed project. He should never even have been one when he cost 50 million quid, but he is unbelievably bad.
I think he wanted both Lindelöf and Maguire to get the full 90 (they are, after all, immediate backup options to our starting CB pair).Not a fecking chance this guy can be worse at RB than Lindelof was.
I hope ETH was just experimenting last night to see if Lindelof can pull it off, and will never attempt it again. fecking dire.
