Didn't he score the 7th most goals for a striker last year?
With all due respect, ChesterDad, you need to stop living in the past. Attacking play these days is far more free form than it used to be - just look at the top 10 highest goalscorers in the league last season - only 2 out and out and strikers there in Kane and Vardy.
If you don't see the value in what Ollie did yesterday, i.e. having a big hand in both goals, then I don't really know what to tell you. It's not 4-4-fakhin-2 and smoking a fag at half time anymore.
Exactly. Just rewatch the first half of the Arsenal game at VP from last season. Or look at how Brighton and Brentford pressed United so hard. We're gonna struggle without Carlos and our game won't be able to advance. It's a hammer blow and if he's done his Achilles he's gone for half a year minimum. So back in February or March? Season is essentially over by then.
It's an absolute disaster
A real shame if he’s out for a while but I’d much rather focus on signing a quality midfielder that would help protect the defence and allow us to keep hold of the ball better, an aid to Kamara.
Mings and Chambers should be fine (Konsa needs time to refocus, get sharp and fit and recover form - maybe reflect on recent poor performances which aren’t the norm for him) until Carlos returns and Kamara can slot in as required so long as we have that addition in midfield…. running out of names/links but that’s a job for the scouting department - to have identified the best options. We really need some physicality and a dominant presence in midfield, a ball playing “rock”, it would bring us on so much… we must improve our passing game.
Absolute rubbish. It’s not a ‘stuff anyone’ attitude that leads people to strike. Nonsense to direct your anger at the people going on strike (remember they won’t get paid that day!)
The whole point of withdrawing labour is that it causes inconvenience, it is seen as the last resort to get a fair wage increase in line with the mounting cost of living and safer working conditions.
Nice to see the respect shown to key workers during the pandemic lives on though eh.
He has a good range of passing for all the talk about his long balls it's the best part of his game
Against a low block he will do the business. He's a high risk passer with good technique and good weight on a pass that needs time and space.
Against the other 14 odd teams in the league he's bang average because he can't or refuses to get on the ball in tight spaces, is slow , ponderous and has the agility of a brick.
Though his arse did look less pronounced yesterday. Body fat or muscle he looks leaner either way.
