If he's that shit in training that 3 managers (one of whom signed him for decent money) have seen fit to leave him out of most matchday squads, I really can't see what people wanting to "Give him a go" are expecting to see from him.All variations of "he sees things that his teammates don't which makes him look bad" are just nonsense (that seem to stem from an Echo article months back) as based on his performances to date, nobody could have possibly come to that conclusion.The only benefit to playing him would be to prove to every man and his dog how poor a signing he really is.
if you watched Ajax the season they got to the Europa League final, then you would have seen his skill set, and what he is capable of. we played him in on the side of 3 in midfield (never in the middle) or one of the wide forward positions. by the time we played him as a CAM, he was already out of form and off the pace,If he played along side Davies and Gueye, with 2fullbacks who bomb on, and with Walcott, he would have options.Fans keep forgetting we had no attacking style of play for a long time this season.. some may say we still dont have one..
He was garbage in the EL final, I watched it.A quick scan through various newspaper ratings of said final also backs this up with him being rated at 5 and 6 across the board.
not the final, that whole season he was fucking epic.are you just basing him off the final? had you ever seen him play before the final?in that season he played 33 league games, scored 14 goals , in the europa he played 17 times scoring 6. his play was amazing.. but hes going to be shit as we had no pace in the team back then when we played him.
If...we actually settled on the team from Weds night we should be slotting him in when Rooney canít play. We seem to have a list of players and base the team / formation on them rather than have a general plan that suits the majority and then picks players to fit that.
so did Robben, Nistelrooy, Van Bastan, Jan wouters, aaron Winters, Bergkamp,, Rijkaard, Gulliet ... Heitinga, Cruyff.. shall i continue?
I dont think he'd suit the Rooney role. He could possibly start replacing Davies late in games in that role to get him back in the team.
looking boss in a pre season game
