I can't agree with the MOTM shouts and played well last night. He worked hard yes, he kept going for sure, and give it to him that at 3-1 down heads could have given in but he was still pushing. But he Is a completely random footballer and most of the time his touch, decisions, movement are really poor.
I can think of 2 crosses where he spanners them straight into the crowd on top of the one on Sunday. Not just Tony hibbert style curled over the bar, full on welly the ball hard as you can and see where it ends up. The last one he is inside the box with a simple ball along the six yard box curled in but for some reason he hits it like he is shooting from 50 yards. The thought process and technique really poor. The shot in the first half which de gea saved, looks good in theory because it's a hard shot on target but I reckon the technique used if he had that shot 10 times it could go in 10 different directions or heights. There were times where his touch, not first but second touch got away from him and lost the ball. It's quite a skill to get the ball settled and then blow it. And others where the usual running with the ball behind him so he looks like he is going to fall over trying to bring it in front of him and heads into traffic. Until he got moved out left for the last 15 mins he was completely anonymous in that second half.
I know he hasn't played any football for over a year now of competitive level but he has bizarre technique, poor thought processes and generally not good. But I'm sure for the rest of his time here wherever he is on loan at we'll be having people on social media etc saying wasn't given a chance when he does something ok, to the he is a clown when he does something embrassing. The reality is he is no way near good enough for us, he should never have been bought and koeman was right to try and ship him out ASAP but hopefully he can get a few goals over the rest of the season and headlines like this so someone might buy him so we aren't stuck paying him 55k a week for the next 3 and a half years.
