Bertrand.


not a bad shout you know I like him.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Depends how much we would pay for Bertrand.

He turns 29 at the end of this season (or start of next season) and he's had a couple of injuries over the last couple of years.

I have no intention of continuing to knock him but Bainsey's crossing is getting poorer by the game .Done .

He made a few good crosses against Bournemouth. One for DCL was perfect.

His and Cuco's passmaps of that game:




(Green successful, red unsuccessful, yellow key passes)

I honestly can't understand why are we playing down the right all the time when we have Baines and Gylfi on the left. It's mad to think that our main attacking threat is ex-Southampton third-choice full back.

If you looked at those stats for the man u game he never put one cross in just one cut back,,one of the games i cant remember which we had 3 players on the edge of their area,, baines knocks it forward as if he's gonna cross it and turns and pass's it back which he has done so many times of late its fucking annoying knowing he's actually able to cross the ball

the reason we use the right more than the left is that cuco actually gets into advanced positions  and makes himself available where baines doesn't, not that cuco does anything with it once there

Sadly, hes not been the same since his ankle injury. Still has a decent cross on him though, but the free kicks have disappeared.

I think in general we do need more pace down that left side.

Love a Baines pass on the ground into the box. He's the best in the business at it. Catches out the opposition and buys the receiving player half a second every single time.

Massively disagree with anyone who thinks Baines is finished. He is still class. The number of times he gets the ball and there is a total lack of blue shirts in front of him is ridiculous. It was doing my head in under Martinez and Koeman hasn't fixed it. On the few occasions he actually has anyone to pass to we look like creating something.

I agree with this, he just needs some one the left,. who will actually stay infront of him, thats when we will see the best of Baines.
Unsworth has a 100% League record at home
Norwich 3-0 15th May 2016
Watford 3-2 5th Nov 2017
West Ham 4-0 29th Nov 2017
To Be Continued.....

There's no single reason why he's dipped. It's a combo of less support/ cover in the left. Playing 3 at the back leaves him stranded if he goes up. He's got in to the habit of stalling and passing back, even on a break he doesn't go for the line like he used to. He's safe because who's his competition? He needs pushing for his place because then we'll see if he's still up for it.

He's done. He's a below average left back now. If it wasn't Leighton Baines who used to be brilliant he'd be getting slated rather than people making excuses for him.
