Agreed from a purely defensive perspective. Throw leadership in there though and you can see why they re so devastated about it. Dude doesn't give up and that's huge for any team - especially when you have some fragile characters like a Salah.
He did. But Ajax were sort of wasteful tonight. I don’t think Sheffield United will be giving them problems too. Their tests come during the first Atlanta game till the Wolves games. If the defence can go during that period without any scares it will give them confidence.
It's insane, reading the media, listening to some interviews, it's like this is the first ever injury of the kind. I feel sorry for VVD cos such a long recovery will be tough for any professional, and I think Pickford is an absolute idiot, but the overall reaction is completely ridiculous - but probably expected given the lunatics over there.
