Mediocre Horse Whisperer, s'up wid chew?

Sucked into the big space in the middle of our goal? Unfortunately, he can't predict where the ball is going to go. Someone has to cover that area. I find this retrospective crticism doesn't really hold up when you think it through logically. Yes, Welbeck decided to attack the back post, but there is no possible way of knowing where he will go at the time. So, the CB covers the space in the middle of the goal and the fullback tucks in and defends the back post. It's not just that AWB lost his duel, but he didn't nothing to effect Welbecks header. How often did we see Neville get beneath an attacker to spoil their attempts? If he failed to do that, it wouldn't be the CBs fault, it would be Neville's.He gets sucked in and is therefore stuck in no man’s land. Hence the ball goes over his head. Wan-Bissaka is shit at tracking runner, which is the main reason we concede. Both players have issues to sort out when it comes to crosses and it costs us regularly, like I said.
