Very impressive cameo, dominated his one v ones, reacted quickly to danger and was smooth and composed on the ball, looked the best of the CB's used.
Here here, totally agree on this.If we’re talking simply about attributes and forgetting experience for a second, then Maguire - Tuanzebe would be the most balanced partnership we could have at CB (assuming we sign the former).
I think that's an interesting idea but actually the wrong way around, I think Tuanzebe would make a good half-back in a 4-3-3 and Lindelof is better left at CB.
Anything like this would be tried in pre season. So no, unless there is an injury crisis.Is there any chance that ole plans to use him as a defensive midfield? I really can't believe that we are going into the season with Matic as our only proper dm.
Wouldnt be surprised either. Just as long as its Maguire and Axel.it wouldn’t surprise me if we a few weeks into the season have an all english defence.
Yeah while I dont hate Smalling as much as some, he definitley should be 4th choice from now.I do think he’s our best option next to Maguire but I think we have the luxury now of being cautious. Maguire Lindelof is certainly good enough on paper so I think we’ll do well having Tuanzebe as third choice and bed him in for cup games and probably 10 or so Premiership starts. He’s looked great in Preseason and last year for Villa but the league is a different ball game.
Shame Smalling seems to be the one isolated out because I’d say he would fill the last space in my main four with Jones as backup. I’d sell Rojo and Bailly.
