Why does he play so much for Napoli and Spain? Can't defend, can't pass, doesn't score. Very handsome though. Has he got any footballing qualities?

:lol: Uncanny!

Maddison is a bit shit too in fairness but at least he occasionally scores a sexy goal.

I remember he was rated very highly by some of our hipster scouts a few years back

Do you know any other hipster scouts?

As a Pogba replacement, back when he was struggling and/or acting up

He's good for Napoli and does score quite a bit from midfield which they need since they havent really had a top striker in recent times. Not good enough for a bigger club though

One of them that does a job that you don't really notice until he's not playing.

He did in his first season cause he played more advanced, but the last couple of seasons he's managed 4 goals each time. He's got only half the goals/min of McTominay, for reference.
He's not useless but it ain't a particularly strong suit either.

Wasn't he brilliant in the under 21 tournament a few summers back?

He plays better in midfield than their other midfielders, by the sound of it.
Weak, can't pass, can't shoot...I want to know what he does well in order to play better than their other midfielders.

But he doesn't whenever I see him! Maybe in Italy? Is pressing what gets him maybe?
Don't know what to tell you, how many times have you seen him play?

Because he generally can do pretty much everything really well...

He's one of those decoy midfielders that has good dribbling and decent shot, useful for teams who use 3 at the middle

he is not that bad. He just plays for a confused team called Napoli. He performs how they do. But he is great player the type that needs to go somewhere better. Maybe Madrid or Milan
