I don't think its early as it is, Rashford has played a 100 PL games, which is amazing considering his age and scored some vital goals in the run up to the UEFA cup win and against top 4 opposition in the premier league.A little bit early to have Rashford listed amongst Aubameyang?
Yeah, let's hope Rashford keeps developing into a world beater.I don't think its early as it is, Rashford has played a 100 PL games, which is amazing considering his age and scored some vital goals in the run up to the UEFA cup win and against top 4 opposition in the premier league.
One's career is on the up and the other will start winding down, I think the margin will only grow wider in Rashford's favour.
I think that’s a fair criticism. Compare and contrast with the great work his opposite number did outside the box in the same match. Lacazette showed him up too.He doesn't do enough outside of the box.
People criticise DDG, defenders etc for not being able to play the ball out in some modern, progressive theoretical nonsense so a fecking striker shouldn't get a pass from it.
Even for a great goalscorer he misses a lot of easy chances.
No I pulled that out of my ass, why?Have you read any post in this thread at all?
He's the gabonese Cavani, elite movement and attacking of space but misses sitters over and over. Still gets loads of goals. I would say the last time Auba had frightening pace was in 2016, he's gotten slower and adapted his game.Auba's biggest weapon was supposed to be his pace - the Usain Bolt of football. Not once have I seen it. Outpaced by Bailly, Varane - I think Smalling also had him in a foot race if I'm not mistaken some time ago. All those defenders are rapid centre backs, but does he get past any? He's either not that fast or he isn't that great at using his pace - a bit like Walcott. He's a good poacher, but when Arsenal aren't dominating, he seems incapable of doing anything on his own. He had a one on one vs Otamendi, and even there he failed to go past him and instead shot straight at Otamendi's body; a terrible attempt.
Yep. The fact that both of them have done this well despite the problems plaguing your squad speaks more of their quality than anything. Very good players.Auba’s a world class poacher, but an average-at-best player outside the box. Lacazette’s a much better footballer but nowhere near as good at scoring goals.
Delighted we have both. Considering the non-existent performances of the ‘creators’ around them (Özil, Ramsey, Iwobi and Mhiki), they’re having phenomenal seasons. Some absolute nonsense being written in this thread, presumably from people who don’t watch much of Auba and have misjudged what type of player he is.
So you pulled one post out of so many to prove your point. This thread is mostly filled with people going on about how average he is, citing the likes of Lacazette being better than him, not to mention people just downright ignoring his return number and pretend that he's absolutely crap. So yeah me asking you if you'd read this thread at all shouldn't come as a surprise.No I pulled that out of my ass, why?
There's someone talking him as maybe the best striker in the league. And in another thread @bosnian_red mentioned how he shows up in big matches unlike Lukaku. Then I checked his stats and he has scored only against Spurs this season in the league and that was in a very impressive performance by the whole Arsenal team.
Don't get me wrong I think he's a solid player but nothing special, similar to Lukaku.
Doesn’t make up for him completely disappearing in the other big games. The guy touched the ball 6 times against Liverpool.Scored a cracker against Spurs.
He is actually playing quite differently compared to his Borussia days. Much more involved in the build-up and actually works for the team, instead of being a lazy pace-merchant. His assist against Spurs, for example, is something that he was never capable of earlier.Why, were people expecting him to change his style when he came to the PL? He's always been a poacher. Nothing new there.
As I already said the other examples were in another thread, and no I don’t think he’s crap at all. Just nothin special in my opinion.So you pulled one post out of so many to prove your point. This thread is mostly filled with people going on about how average he is, citing the likes of Lacazette being better than him, not to mention people just downright ignoring his return number and pretend that he's absolutely crap. So yeah me asking you if you'd read this thread at all shouldn't come as a surprise.
Also PEA has already shown a good record against the top teams in his past seasons at Dortmund and he's a proven big game player. He's scored goals against the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich etc.
Indeed. He even had a head start on Smalling because Smalling actually slipped just before that sprinting race.He's definitely lost some pace. First Bailly and now Smalling have quite comfortably outpaced him. They're both quick defenders but a couple of years ago he would have left them for dead.
