He looks like he's flagging from min 1. Don't think that's anything to do with ETH's style.He's had much less time with the squad. Much less time with ETH. He's fit but we saw it with the rest of the team, they were flagging after 45 mins and now, a few weeks later, they're all getting better at keeping it going further into the match. Casemiro will be just the same. He's just not match sharp.
And this is how about 65/70% of football fans form their opinions...Just an example how stats can convert a decent performance into an amazing one. Add the “new sheriff in town” part and it becomes a world class performance for someone who didn’t see the actual match.
How did we beat them in defensive line height with Martinez and Malacia in the side? How short were their defenders?!? I kid
I reckon Mctominay got the push he needed, it was either step up or you're going to be replaced.Fair to say that he hasn't been as bad as some are making out but also slightly underwhelming? Whisper it quietly, but McTominay is actually in great form over the last few games alongside Eriksen so we have not needed to chuck Casemiro in straight away which, on the evidence of his performances so far, is a good thing. Though it is a bit of a catch 22 as I think Casemiro has looked a bit rusty which will only be cured with more game time, which we are lacking given the Queen delays!
I just find it hard to believe that some people really believe that a player like Casemiro who played constantly as a midfielder for one of the best teams in football history can't pass a ball and that his only qualities are tackles and duels. Especially as a DM in modern football there is no chance that he would play for Real Madrid if he has bad technique.What a lemon. All those saying he can tackle but he can't pass have been proven to be pretty much nonsense. Not just that, I've seen enough in the few games he's played here, that he can move it well.
"Lemon" thing was a tongue in cheek comment although it's clear he'll take a bit of adjusting to the pace of the PL. My problem is people expecting him to be a midfield maestro while he's at his best sitting deep and protecting the defense.Ah yes your wisdom which also stated that Malacia is a “pretty bad player”.
Probably will need a couple of seasons to get up to speed.
All he came here for was for a monster superannuation package....anyone that thinks differently needs to wise the feck up!
