As an Englishman I'd love to see him nail down the role for both club and country, but I agree with you 100%. A total waste of space so far. A bloody sicknote that needs to sort himself out or feck off so that we can buy someone dependable at for the role.Jeez what a waste of space he turned out to be. He makes Jones look healthy
Based on.... what?22 when the season starts. He may not be the player we hoped for but he can certainly be a better left back than Darmian.
He was constantly injured before the leg break and he was injured after finishing rehab for it. His reputation is justified and it's up to him to condition himself better to avoid these injuries.The stick Shaw gets. Crazy.
Calling the guy a sicknote when another player snapped his leg! Yeah he's had other injuries but without the break who knows how it would have been.
Remember he was also accused of faking injury end of last season.
I think he's got the making of a great player who needs nothing more than a change of fortune.
Two full seasons at Southampton without injury. So that's simply not true.He was constantly injured before the leg break and he was injured after finishing rehab for it. His reputation is justified and it's up to him to condition himself better to avoid these injuries.
Darmian is fairly limited in what he can do, particularly in the final third. He was solid enough in the Europa games for us but he was far from great in games where we were mostly grinding out results against vastly inferior opposition.Based on.... what?
Darmian has been great for us at LB. Especially in the Europa. Shaw has never been that good.
It's like saying "Januzaj can be better than Mata!"
Some players fail to live up the hype. It happens. We should get rid of Shaw and get Mendy in my opinion.
Agree. Jose will very likely bring in a new LB next summer if Shaw doesn't put on some show.I know he's young and has potential, but this season is make or break for him (in my opinion, anyway).
I can't see Jose hanging on to him should he not get fit and put in some consistency on the pitch this season.
Let's hope it works out for him.
