Yes true, but in fairness to Bailly, he looked like a really top defender in his first few months, now looks way too rash and a bit clumsy but he can definitely still improve.It does have a lot to do with how overrated Bailly is, and how poor he's been over the last year in particular. However, Lindelof has got better, like others have said, he looks like Blind Mk2 in the making. Can't ever see him being a stand out CB, but a good squad option (when we improve our defence). Hopefully he can buck the trend and stay fit and actually be available unlike the rest of the CB posse.
I agree that lindelof still only looks good not great, but still at least looks worth what we paid. And as others say blind was a decent player, very good reader of the game and passer but lacked pace and strength for the league, I think lindelof has a bit more pace than him alright.
Good to see him improving but no need to say he will be amazing I suppose.
