I don't even think he keeps the ball well does he? Genuine question but all I can think of is him getting the head down and either giving it away or getting tackled rather than opening up a defence and building up an attack or setting up a chance?

I'm not meaning to be down on the lad, I just don't see why there's a clamour from some people to see him played more often than he has been. All three managers this season seem to have had reservations about playing him.

Yeah, he keeps it well, and shows good strength.

The 'clamour' is probably in reaction to the utter dross served up all season by others in positions on the field that he could occupy.

No, it isn't ideal to throw in a 19 year-old EPL rookie, but hey, we are shite.

Iíll take that team mate.

I think McCarthy and Schneids are very ball shy for a two in cm but I HOPE with sig in the middle and pace either side he will be drawn to the ball. Heís definitely got the legs to go centre circle to box for 90 minutes collecting the ball and playing it to the options ahead (before arriving late on the edge of the box and finishing - his best asset, my prediction for what will happen) just whether he has that natural attraction to the ball.

Will be great to see Theo and Tosun, really looking forward to it, hope we get the ball to them and in to good spaces for them plenty.

Not sure what to say about Vlasic cause I dunno how thatíll work, but worried and would rather bolasie I think.


Donít think Schneiderlin is overly ball shy.

Itís just that his style is more shifting it from side to side, with his best pass a switch of play.

For him to be effective with the ball he needs good vertical options to be close to him or lots of movement to the sides in order to unsettle the opposition positionally, or then the team to have good possession which drags players towards one side enabling the switch to the other.

None of which weíve had this season.

Itís without the ball that heís been particularly poor this season looking slow to the tackle etc.

Sad as it is, I think Vlasic is one of our smarter players in possession.

As in, he looks like he actually thinks before he tries things.

Has anyone else caught your attention this season, though?

Apart from Rooney and Sigurdsson goals it's been a season of awful or forgettable moments.

So yeah, a 19 year-old who keeps hold of the ball well in tight situations and likes to go towards the oppositions goal has offered a glimmer of hope to me at least.

I don't even think he keeps the ball well does he? Genuine question but all I can think of is him getting the head down and either giving it away or getting tackled rather than opening up a defence and building up an attack or setting up a chance?

I'm not meaning to be down on the lad, I just don't see why there's a clamour from some people to see him played more often than he has been. All three managers this season seem to have had reservations about playing him.

Members of the "Irrationally Big Fans of Nikola Vlasic Club" rejoice!

(And I say that as a full-fledged member of the club.)

Edit: Just saw the bit about Bolasie. Hope he doesn't pass because Vlasic is the only joy I get from this squad.

The Theo-logians patiently await your application. We will be open for submissions from 16:30 Saturday afternoon.
