good summary. if he can cut out the rash moments from his game he can really be a top player. Fingers crossed for this fella to settle down and live up to his ability.He is a very good defender who goes to sleep at times. Maguire should help him out by speaking to him during the games. My worry of Bailly is that its the easy balls that he switches off and the difficult ones that he is good at. He also tries to play too much football in dangerous situations. But one good thing is that he has pace and strength and would never pull out of a tackle or a header. I think him and Maguire can make a good partnership but it is too early to say. The fact that he is so quick is a huge positive on Lindelof and Maguire partnership.
Well, he is more physical than Lindelof and is much more proactive and aggressive than Lindelof. Lindelof became first choice on the basis that he rarely misses games with injury, while every single CB apart from Maguire is a crock.Just a gut feeling but I think Ole likes him and will slowly integrate him into the first team alongside Maguire. He’s pragmatic, Ole, so he won’t just throw out Lindelof straight away. It’ll be more of a phasing out, I reckon.
Ultimately, it’s all down to this lad’s fitness.
Absolutely agree. This is how he needs to play. Use aggression when needed, but good positioning and calmness will make him a better player.Genuinely the most un Bailly like performance ever and the fact he wasn’t running around or sliding about like a mad man makes me think this was one of his better performances. Calm and assured, more of this please.
He outpaced Aubameyang and has made many quick wingers look like fools tryibg to outsprint him. It was Smalling who matched Vardy a couple of seasons ago and easily outpaced Willian.3 games and 3 clean sheets, including game vs Chelsea away.
If he can stay fit, he can be very good CB. We can also push higher up without worrying about pace, his recovery pace is very good. IIRC he kept up with Vardy too, don't remember whether it's Bailly or Smalling btw.
Thanks. Yeah Bailly and Maguire would be my first choice too.He outpaced Aubameyang and has made many quick wingers look like fools tryibg to outsprint him. It was Smalling who matched Vardy a couple of seasons ago and easily outpaced Willian.
bailly looks good at the moment. If he can only remain fit, he and Maguire should be our preferred choice at the back.
