You're confusing attacking with being expected to put out left winger numbers in attack. Marcelo and Dani Alves were wingbacks, their quality was in attack not defending and their teams understood this and pushed them high up the pitch with others having to make up for it.In the modern game, WB and FB role has merged for top teams.
You can't be just a FB in elite teams. Shaw played like WB most of the times, but when he needs to defend, he slot in the back four easily.
To be fair to them both when there are no options cause one of the midfielders is playing behind you with one central by himself the 3rd off as a striker it takes away the options to actually play the ball forward other than a risky ball that will most likely result in a turn over of possesion.Him and Maguire were both competing for who could pointlessly hold onto the ball longer.
Hopefully a blip for Shaw. He was way too slow on the ball and kept hogging it needlessly killing potential for attacks.
Agree. There were two situations I thought play had stopped because he was just passively standing there with the ball. These are the games I‘d like to see players like Shaw take initiative and pull others having a bad game out of their hole and fight their way back into a game. Attitude and appearance make a difference. And his were poor this time.The moments when he constantly dwelled on the ball in the last 15 were infuriating.
