Scholes while wasnt fast nor big he was strong. Shoretire doesnt seem to have any phyisicallity at all, its really hard for players like that to make it in the premier league. Hopefully I'm wrong but I just don't see how he can break into the team.
Shola is multiple inches taller than Scholes, is considerably faster, and has at no point every struggled strength wise. How is it hard for players like him to make it in the Premier League when he has a similar physique to virtually every attacking midfielder in the league?
Personally, I think most of the points made here are near enough to non-sense.
For no end product he has a goal or assist every 129 minutes at u21/23s level. That is great for an AM/winger, even phenomenal when you consider much of that was at 16/17 years old, in essence playing up 6-7 age groups and being the youngest player on the pitch in every single match.
For being the u21s worst player he was actually the top scorer up until going on loan.
Apparently lazy and doesn't care and did nothing against Brighton according some. Literally set up all 3 goals. Same match thread makes mention of him celebrating the last goal as if he didn't celebrate the first two, he did. Agendas much?
No physicality, immediately impresses in League one, a super physical league.
Meant to carry the entire u21s by himself with no wingers and no strikers? What is an attacking midfielder exactly meant to elevate when he has no one in front of him to pass the ball to? He still scored in the first win of the season against Wolves, single handedly rescued a point against Chelsea, involved in every goal against Brighton, was our best attacker by far against Spurs, and best player on the pitch by far against Fleetwood.
He's held to a standard way beyond any of the other players for some reason.
