Are there any established rules for switching between bubbles? Obviously he's going from the first team to the U23s for this easily enough, but not sure if it's more stringent to go back up.
Will be interesting to see tonight, at least. Now we're playing well and have options on the right, there's less immediate need to chuck him in.
I'm not sure how it works either, I was just going off what Ole said in the presser in regards to not being able to give players coming off injuries minutes in the reserves to get match fit due to the sets of players being in different bubbles.not sure how it works, but didn’t Shaktar have to call up a large number of youngsters to play at Madrid?
Yes.He was in the squad against PSG right?
A thing of beauty that yellow, retains the ball in a challenge where the defender falls against him. I wonder what he thought when he came off the pitch, had a really poor 2 footed challenge on him by Evertons No 5 go unpunished and he gets booked for that shite . Ref should be taken for a feckin eye test he was horrendous.
Wasn't afraid of a tussle, which I liked. Could've gone into his shell after the two footer right at the start but kept taking people on. Pass in behind at 3:51 was nice as well. Occasionally held onto it too long and the final ball was sometimes a bit off, but a good first game particularly given he hasn't even been training with them.
Actually it looks like he gets a slap in the face from the first player he goes past. Then rides another challenge with his low centre of gravity, only to receive a yellow card. The only explanation that makes sense is if the ref caught the hand Facundo got in his face and some how thought the following situation was retaliation. Either way it's idiotic, but it would actually make sense because that's the type of stuff refs do in the PL all the time. Like when Martial got elbowed and got a red card for his reaction He wants to be promoted badly this one.probably for the hand in the face but yeah, they kick him right in the shin, two foot tackle and no yellow card
Did well on second half but what the other poster said is correct. Just need to look at Williams to see how a first teamers should look like when playing at this level. Obviously early days for him in a totally different football environment so no concern at all.Not sure I agree with that. Thought he looked good.
