Mediocre Horse Whisperer, s'up wid chew?

You were in the Lindelof thread bringing up a single, unimportant incident from a decade ago in order to prove Lindelof was slow. Like I said, I've no idea why you have this agenda. It's burgeoning on an obsession. You're genuinely here, trying to make the argument that Smalling is a more progressive passer FFSIt's not like 0 vs 0.05 ''through ball'' is any difference. But if that's how you want to describe it than I'll play along with.
The point is me talking about Smalling's problem not Lindelof's weakness. How is making less progressive/forward passes is weakness? Like I said before, you are being too defensive on Lindeof.
Succinctly surmised by romufc:
Have a look at the stats below on passing
Lindelof had a better passing accuracy %, more passes ending in the final 1/3, and more passes in the opp half. That is progressive passing and play.
