He used to make shitload of errors, losing games on his own. Sevilla game strikes but many lost challenges. it's quite a myth he doesnt make errors. but yeah who doesnt challenge seemt o be more composed etc. Pussy mentality all round.His player thread always having so few posts is typical of him, the most anonymous defender ever, built his career on being the one in the background shot as the opposition score.
Doesn't make butal errors but does nothing effective.
He watched the ball go over him for the 4th goal.Compeltely agree.
He was dreaful in his first seaso and has improved since then.....to average at best. He doesnt really make huge howlers often, but his reading of the game, his closign down and getting in the right places, strength, even on the ball....it is all weak.
I cant believe how much the guy gets defender on here, maybe as others mention he is escaping it with just how dreadful Magurie has been alongside him.
He is an average mid table centre back and with Varanes injury niggles, will say it again, our failure to sign better centre back options this summer is the biggest mistake this summer, really think it could end up costig us 20 odd points in the premiership and in pivotal moments in other competitions.
As kamikaze as Bailly was, even when he was fit you coudl see the improvement at blocking and defening balls into the box both in the air and along the ground, Lindlof is terrible at it
I called it a really over whelming signings at the time and got slaughtered. What amazes me is how much he is defended whenever he plays above average and the conception peopl ehave of him beign good on the ball. Hear the same with Dalot being good on the ball and an attacking fll back.His whole Utd career is built on him not being Jones or Smalling, who lets be honest both showed a far higher level at Utd than Lindelof has ever done. He was the right time, right place to get a chance when Utd lost faith in those 2. Never convinced, there is no leadership or spine in his game, his partner always has to do the real defending.
Such a nothing player, looks alright if you don't pay attention to him, the Donny/McT of CB's.I called it a really over whelming signings at the time and got slaughtered. What amazes me is how much he is defended whenever he plays above average and the conception peopl ehave of him beign good on the ball. Hear the same with Dalot being good on the ball and an attacking fll back.
Supported the club forover forty years so know things go in cycles and cant expect top sides all the time....but it does seem to me a lot of fans have accepted mediocrty with players individually as something more than mediocrity if there is an effort from those players.
We have mediocre players here peopl ethink are good and good players people think are stars.
Take away the new signings and youngsters as far too early to judge them for me we have five at most top players and a couple of them may well be at a stage of clinical decline....and for the money we have spent over the last fe years, that is not acceptable
I think the point was we wanted to play out the back.We should have never let Smalling go. I was adamant at the time.
Why we never even tried a Smalling Maguire partnership (when Maguire had just signed) is beyond me.
