Shown himself to be a very capable CB who was probably being let down by his partner in the past.
He stepped up big time when we needed him. Definitely secured his place at the club for next season.
I believe he's already hinted that he doesn't want to stick around to just be a bench warmer, so I'm unfortunately expecting him to want to go, even if we sell Maguire and especially if we sign another defenderHe has done very well this season, easily 3rd choice now.
I think this guy actually called it.I dont really agree. There have been given quite a bit of attention to the need for speed at the back if we want to play with a high line. I think people ignore that de Ligt, Martinez and Blind are not very fast at all. But they are aggressive.
I think that will be a difference. Our defenders will be instructed/encouraged to be aggressive and command the area between them and the midfielders. While Lindeløf is not an aggressive defender by nature, I do think it could suit him.
I also think he is a player that will enjoy a better structure in buildup. And I think there is a good chance EtH will try to make more use of his ability to break the lines (both with runs and passing).
Because he’s not being passive and reactive like he used to be. This is what we are talking about being aggressive and proactive even if it means conceded foul in the middle of the pitch. Not pussy.Another good game, won back a lot of balls like the one that set us up for the goal.
