Sancho's first touch was poor
In short, not good enough for us.I've been saying this for some time now; AWB is often times caught out of position and offers next to nothing going forward. He is simply a very good tackler of the ball. That's it. Everything is else is average or below average for what a United Fullback should provide.
Been saying the same too.I've been saying this for some time now; AWB is often times caught out of position and offers next to nothing going forward. He is simply a very good tackler of the ball. That's it. Everything is else is average or below average for what a United Fullback should provide.
Exactly. The red card isn't the main issue for me. Shit can happen. However the other issue is more concerningA red card in isolation's fine. A red card that's completely due to an issue that's been pointed out time and time again (before he even signed in fact) is slightly more annoying.
Pogba usually makes that challenge when it runs away from him. It happens.You can tell the difference between an occasionally recurring incident and a frequently recurring one, can't you? You mean to tell me you believe that Pogba and AWB have the same quality of first touch?
Well, I would say most of the blame probably is on him in this instance. We don't lose that game if he doesn't do that.I don't rate him but it's too easy to pin all the blame on him. He's doesn't usually make bad tackles like that and the reaction from the team in going down to down was terrible.
Yeah you're right. If there isn't a red card I think we win comfortably. Don't think it excuses the performance thereafter though.Well, I would say most of the blame probably is on him in this instance. We don't lose that game if he doesn't do that.
It doesn't mean we make sweeping judgements on him as a player but let's call a spade a spade, if you get sent off in the first half at this level, even if it's not against a CL giant you are in trouble.
He's a very large part of why we lost tonight. We can analyse the mistakes after that in terms of approach and further individual mistakes but still..
I mean he did cost £50 million. I’m not sure money is an excuse for right back being an issue.You cannot have top player in every goddamned position. We are not City or Chelsea with oil money. It never happens. Gary Neville wasn't a great right back, as well, far from the best, but United was winning everything with him.
AWB got a red card, can happen to anybody, and he is suddenly a villain. Feck that. What we need is a proper DFM, not a RB. When we were 10 it became even more important to have a proper DFM. Also, starting Lindelof (who cost us first of their goals) and bringing in Lingard (who added nothing to attack and cost us ridiculous second goal) were the worst decisions that really cost us the points. This is Young Boys FFS, we could have won with 10 players.
And most importantly, he still has the same weaknesses as he had when he signed over two years ago. That’s what annoys me about him. You’d think that he’d be able to improve at least one aspect of his game in over two years at one of the biggest clubs in the world, yet he’s the exact same player he was two years ago with the same weaknesses he had back then.Red cards can happen to literally anyone. His overall quality is what makes him a bigger question mark than a daft tackle tonight. He's got a lot of glaring weaknesses.
AWB is better than him by streaks. I kept tabs on his loan move he isn't what you think.So he’s got to come on and take off like a rocket. Give the lad a chance, 10 games to prove himself!
Dalot was much better than AWB has been all season, and Dalot didn't even really do anything.Where we watching the same game did you see Dalot?
You are drunk. It's been a difficult day. Go homeDalot was much better than AWB has been all season, and Dalot didn't even really do anything.
Wan Bissaka has a horrible first touch, he can't cross, gets caught out defensively seemingly all the time and most worryingly he isn't improving in any of those areas. Time for Dalot.
We’ll gladly have him back, no question. What would you take for him?
Same goal involvements last season in the PL as Shaw...Lacks any skill, flair, creativity. Just a really boring player with many flaws on both ends and just the one redeeming quality. Funny thing its exactly what was written on the tin. Don't know why we thought it would turn out any different.
Please don't compare him to Shaw. World's apart.Same goal involvements last season in the PL as Shaw...
Shaw. Total PL apps: 192, Goals:2, Assists: 13
AWB. Total PL apps: 115, Goals:2, Assists: 11
People want to be right about him being wrong for us but today was a freak event, he's a top RB and needs intensive coaching (as all young players do).
