Yeah this is true. Alexander-Arnold, Cancelo & James seem to have created their own position. I'd say Robertson is more of a traditional marauding LB by comparison.I think we probably just need a new name for the position he, Cancelo and others are playing now because judging him on traditional fullback qualities makes no sense. It seems like the new “Libero” position, they start from deep but connect all phases of play, they’re given the freedom to step in and pounce when the space opens up, and they’re one of the chief playmakers. They just play where the space is, back in the 70s it was through the middle as a sweeper, now it’s just exploiting the space mostly abandoned by wingers now.
Maybe but that's partly because City and Chelsea are also incredibly well coached sides as well. Either or both of them might end up on 90+ points.I think it goes a bit deeper than that. I don’t think you will win another league with the way you play with Trent. You’ll give up too many silly goals over a season to overcome City and maybe Chelsea.
