He has better dribbling than Daniel James, although he only uses it in our own penalty area.
fecking lunatic this man is. A freakishly athletic, erratic and absurdly entertaining lunatic.
Please don't injure yourself again and don't kill anyone on the pitch by accident.
Surprised it wasn't Bailly that kicked that guys balls
Really good player. Also a really bad player. Sometimes both within the same minute.
Guy is clearly a talented footballer. And not a bad defender. But his muscles are made of chalk.
It's like watching the defensive version of Nani. Certainly never boring.
Bailly is a human vicious circle.
He has moments of class surrounded by moments of chaos and amateur mistakes. The way that a player irons those creases out of his game is by playing regularly, and Eric is made of glass so he can't play regularly. The cycle continues!
If he was better in the air (and obviously, not mental) he'd be the perfect partner for Maguire, sadly.
There’s simply no reason for that to be true. AWB is explosive, commits to reaching tackles and generally throws momentum at everything.Add the previous season in Villarreal to that but those times might be long gone when he comes back. His style with bang up ligaments.....
Not sure I've ever disagreed with a post more. Bailly is a good foil for Maguire but in the exact opposite way, with Harry stepping forward, winning headers, making big challenges outside the box, while Bailly covers him with his pace and last ditch challenges. You even qualify your statement by saying Bailly isn't intelligent enough to break up those plays...Maguire may be a giant bloke but he's not the most physical or aggressive - in fact, he's probably more 'Beauty' (Rio) than 'The Beast' (Vidic/Stam). I've been saying all season, Lindelöf cannot be the long-term partner for Harry because he's way too passive and feeble. Maguire + a physical, aggressive, front-foot CB is what is needed. Bailly ticks all of those boxes but obviously, he's batshit mental and prone to too many errors.
Most apt description ever.He did well, to be fair, better than anyone could've expected considering how long he's been out.
But let's put it in context, he played most of the game against a striker, boo'd off by his home support.
And he'll probably rupture his anus or something in the next game and be out for 368 months.
Overall I do like him, he's like Vidic, if Vidic dropped a tonne of acid half an hour before kick off.
Yeah because people can’t even see humour and hyperbole when it smacks them in the face. You deserved to waste it on that post if you couldn’t figure that out for yourself.This is one stupid stupid post.
Last night was much more 80% quality, 15% wow, 5% shittest defener on Earth.
I wasted my 10,000 post on this
I don’t think Bailly is prone to errors any more than any of our other defenders. His mistakes just get amplified like crazy on this forum. I see Lindelof and Maguire doing dumb shit that lead to goals week in week out.Gotta love him, but I will also never not think he's about three seconds away from costing us a goal.
