So now he is not good enough again? In a match where our midfield was non existent.
As Ole has consistently mentioned in his pressers, we are not at the proper level of fitness yet. There's a lack of intensity from all of our players so far barring maybe Fred, but he's a machine. Give it another few games and we'll be seeing the Martial we saw at the end of last season again.I just wish he played with more intensity, he’s so good, some of the time.
A sensible approach, and should be applied to all our players. This was our 2nd PL game in a very strange season, things will certainly change.Now is not the time to be turning on players. The entire team hasn’t been good enough. Far more sensible to consider Martials form over the last year than the first two games.
As usual, we are so so reliant on the left side for attacking. Probably the most lopsided team in the league in that regard.
Just came across this on Reddit, as I mentioned yesterday, I felt one of our issues was that we couldn't get the ball to Martial enough. I also mentioned that this was a big problem before Bruno's arrival. This graphic backs up my point that nobody around him was capable of doing their jobs and getting the ball to him.
Yeah, I was pulling my hair put yesterday seeing 5 or 6 of our players over there trying to interchange little passes when the right side had acres of space.As usual, we are so so reliant on the left side for attacking. Probably the most lopsided team in the league in that regard.
Agreed, and that was a delicious bit of skill to kickstart the movie that led to Greenwood's disallowed goal.He didn't look as sharp as he did at the end of last season. He has been a bit of a slow starter always so I would give him the benefit of doubt and expect him to come good soon.
Or sign a right winger and give Greenwood a chance in his natural position..This season was meant to be his breakout season as a certified top striker. This start has been horrific now he has to sit out 3 games? If he doesn’t do the business this season we need to break the bank for a certified 9.
I would be surprised if Cavani would be match fit to make the bench there. Rushing unfit player (with recent niggling injuries) into high intensity game, what can go wrong?He's having a terrible start for the season and it's not just today.
Cavani will start against Newcastle most probably and won't surprise me if he takes such chance earlier and cements the place for himself.
