To be fair; to blame Blind for yesterday's goal against N. I is a a view of football purely on the last error - and even then it wasn't the last error.Anybody see his defending for the NI goal yesterday? That's why we got rid of him. He's lauded as a great technical player but I think he's very overrated in that regard too.
Watch the YouTube video of the goal :
1. De ligt scuffed the clearence
2. Blind did a half decent scuffed clearance understandably from a scuffed clearence itself but then manages to head the ball and get a good positioning on the attacker.
3. Blind actively goes for an interception & then trips (not gets pushed down by some strong man or how it maybe viewed by some)
4. The attacker crosses and De ligt not only misses the header completely but also has his hand waving about like Maradona trying to give them a penalty.
De ligt was at fault for that goal. Blind tripped on making an active interception after having to recover from de light's mistakes.
Anyway - Blind & Smalling were the best partnership at United post SAF.
Maguire, Smalling & Blind should be in our collection of 4 CB's that every team have - yet we have Rojo, Bailly, Jones & Lindelof who is less physically strong and not good with aerial football than Blind himself.
Maguire, Blind & Smalling & potentially Lindelof/Tuenzebe - should be the current collection of CB's we have. The reason we don't is what's wrong with United; managers are given too much power instead of a DOF who can see such simple simple aspects of football instead of a manager like Jose or Ole or LVG who gets rid of who they want just to buy who they want.
