Which is almost all based on one incident when he was a teenager on loan at Aberdeen
The English Isco, but will be a better player. Has a few of the same selfish traits though.
He will want the number 7 I guess
No one mentioned the Norwegians yet?
Not entirely sure he’s what we need. Another player who’s end product is inconsistent and will cost a arm and a leg. We need proven attackers.
Regardless I won’t believe anything until a internet ITK tweets/posts about it.
Most chances created is inconsistent?
I hate stats
Would like him at the club but it ain't happening this summer unless we sell off some valuable playing staff.
There are various incidents that have occurred as to why people have a bad opinion of Maddision, most noteably a few weeks ago back in Norwich. He seems to have matured since coming here, but like any young lad he likes to enjoy himself, but he believes he's better than us mere mortals. A lot of Leicester fans took a while to take to Maddision and he is slowly winning the majority of them over.
On the pitch he's a very good player, last season was his first in the prem and he did well (especially with us being so poor under Puel). He'd end up costing you about 50 million though, so I highly doubt you'll purchase him.
Story that came out seems to be false...that he met with Ole to find out how he will fit in the structure at Man utd.
That'd be tapping up, unless Leicester gave permission - which without a fee being agreed they wouldn't, for obvious reasons. Ridiculous story.
What did they say?
Can't find anything on there Facebook page.
Is Maddison a number 10?
Something about Maddison due to do a medical on Friday and it’s all hush hush.
Mainly. Also played coming off the left at the start of the season for Leicester. And then 2nd half of the season he played in a 3 man midfield as the most advanced player, pretty much the Pogba role with very little defensive responsibility
He played quite a bit deeper in the second half of the season, more of a creative / pulling the strings role. Meant less goals and assists than earlier in the season though.
They also responded to someone in the comments who said it’s no news anywhere else, and said "that’s correct, just wait and see".
How much do you rate Maddison compared with Havertz, Eriksen and Fernandes? Do you think he is better than any of them?
Tried to attach a picture from the Norwegian facebook-post, but that didn’t go through. The group is called "Mini megastore, Lyngdal", the post was uploaded 16 hours ago. Trying my best to post the link here: www facebook com/292616980835409/posts/2244812485615839?sfns=mo
As in a deep lying playmaker role ? As that’s exactly the type of player we need and have done since Scholes and Carrick retired, we’d need an out and out defensive midfielder though if Maddison and Pogba or a Pogba replacement were in the same starting 11 together.
Thats when he was playing the Pogba role.
Hmm, why would they post that without actually knowing something?
I hope it's true.
Why would someone on the internet post something to seem like they have inside sources?
How highly do you rate him btw? He'll stay at Leicester for sure?
He’ll be starting for England by Christmas, he prefers 10 but right now he’s better as part of a pair of 8s
Yes, I'd say so.
I don't think it was quite the same role. From what I saw of Maddison (second half of season) he didn't really "rampage forward" much like Pogba does, more creating and then trusting the forwards to do their thing, whereas Pogba seems to want to be the one doing it all himself.
Remember Andre Herrera used to be attacking midfield when we signed him? I was wondering if James Maddison has sort of work rate like Herrera.
Maddison was in pretty much the same positions based on his average position maps
Averages can be misleading
Not here. It shows where he appeared most often
I hope we get him. Looks a cultured player. You get a sense we'll regret this one if we dont get him now.
Interesting, I wonder if Ole sees Maddison in a deep lying playmaker role dictating tempo and creating whilst allowing Pogba to do his thing further forward ? It would definitely help us creatively as I’m sure I’ve read in a few places Maddison creating more than anyone else in the league last season, could really spark our attack off from deep and quicken the pace too.
Yeah, he didnt play that role. Tielemens played a bit deeper than Maddison most of the time, he was the one getting on the ball more, playing more passes overall and from deeper with Maddison receiving the ball on the half turn in space further up the pitch
Maddison is a no.10. Pogba is the one you would have in a deeper role if they were in the same team.
Maddison will be better than Isco? Based on what?
Disagree. He's OK, but I don't think he's anything special at all.
How many midfielders in the Under 21s (tournament) have we seen who are at least as good or even better than him? Thing is those players do not receive the same hype.
Over-rated, and will be overpriced. And will not improve us that much, if at all
Save the money, scout around. There's no urgency to purchase Maddison.
