Said in a thread last week, knwo little of Ten Hag but cant bleive people think he has a cope of guiding this bunch of players to top four and that the pitiful window, fans will turn on him in months. Got slaughtered for that and oh he will improve many of these players, takes time, can only sell so many blah blah blah blah blah.
1.5games in and see many are turning on him here already and slating the signings as well.
Personally like Matinez and think he was the only one able to read runners, movement an dpassing of Brentforn in the first half.
The simple fact is Dalot simply cant defend, Bissaka should be in ahead of him.
Maguires intelligence and anticipation of movement of the opposition runs is dreadful, often in no mans land. Also he is a weakness with the ball, give him the ball...he stands still with it nearly every time, and his rang eo fpassing isnt good either, has to be replaced in the starting eleven
Fred, great energy and work rate. But he cant defend and he is woefully inconsistent on the ball, simply not good enough.
Eriksen s the signing I just dont get. Good player, but 30 and really he is competition for Fernandes, he doesnt solve anything in the first eleven....yeha he was free....so was frickin Kamara at Villa who is eight years younger and fits a role we needed. Brentford have signed a top young player in Damsgaard for £17m who would have been a good right wing option for us, Eriksen solves little
Sancho is in effective on the right, so we need a right sided player....and RAshford should and still should be sold
Fernandes should never have bene given a new contract, he has beedn dreadful for a long time now
As for Ten Hag, he has a way he wants to play tactically etc etc....most of these players are not intelligent enough to adapt to that, they never were. He is better of using some of the youngsters we have, genuinely believe that.
We still need two central midfielders, a right winger and a striker THIS window, and three other positions too furtherr down the line.
Yet here wer eare with likes of Rabiot, Arnautovic etc etc....utter shambles and its genuinely no surprise to me we are getting battered with our lack of recruitment and not atually signing players in the positions needed, amazingly 2 of our 3 signings have been made arguably in positions that least needed upgrading short term....ridiculous
