Ah shame, at least it's a better trajectory than producing players who completely disappear when they leave and get no where near the higher leagues.
We don't have the wing backs to play it, so unless we are signing 2 of those as well as the 2 centre halves, 2 central midfielders and centre forward plus additional squad fillers then it just needs putting in the bin
They only really need to do one of those things if the rest of the team did their jobs too, could probably work on that if they weren't expected to do so much else to cover other deficiencies.They can't cross, can't shoot, can't beat a man and don't score. They aren't wing backs
I give you both of Villa's full backs as a starting point who would be more suited than any of ours. There are plenty of full backs who'd be better suited to playing wing back than any of ours without being Cancello.Yeah with Mark on that. There are only about 5 players in the world who do all that from wingback/fullback, two at Liverpool and one at City. So it's a big ask.
R James, Chilwell, A Davies, Gosens and quite a few others.Yeah with Mark on that. There are only about 5 players in the world who do all that from wingback/fullback, two at Liverpool and one at City. So it's a big ask.
Theo Hernandez is another.Reece James I considered but had missed his amount of goals this year but he just backs up my point in that he'd cost about 70-100mil?
Digne and Cash though aren't on that level. They have 3 goals 3 assists and I feel like both Ran and Semedo would have higher assists with actual bodies in the box.
Davies has 0 goals this year too from a check.
Forgotten his name but did anyone see the goal the Milan Wingback scored this week? Carried it from his own box!
Thus proving my point as they aren't playing wing back for 90% of games. Cash has 3 goals and 3 assists, Digne 3 assists from less than half a season. Semedo has 0 goals and 1 assist from 25 games, because he isn't a wing back and won't ever be.Digne and Cash though aren't on that level. They have 3 goals 3 assists and I feel like both Ran and Semedo would have higher assists with actual bodies in the box.
A full back provides an additional attacking outlet, a wingback provides a fundamental attacking outlet.
Not really, Semedo and RAN are better at being defenders than attackers.Again, more nuance than that.
Robertson and Alexander-Arnold offer as much, if not more, attacking purpose than wingbacks would it most other teams. There are multiple ways to play every single formation, you can ask different things of the same position from one shape to another, one team to another.
Football tactics are far more complex than the way you arrange the players names on a piece of paper at 2pm.
