How is it even possible that those touches are so evenly distributed across the field. Does he not understand what CM stands for!

Interesting point. I'd like to think against better teams his heat map is more compact as better players will exploit the space he leaves.

I was not really serious when I said that (should have added a smiley face or something). But perhaps it might be a concern against the best. Does not seem to have been so far. He has been excellent.

Bet he does it on purpose to inflate those tackling stats ;)

NBA players have actually intentionally missed layups so that they could get there own rebounds and inflate their stats.

So there might be some benefit to Niasse, even if it's indirect.

Good article that.

Yeah, I saw that as well. Funny how that can be the case--we always think of players in terms of there value to the team, and categorize them accordingly. But the actual players themselves have there own independent relationships.

He's commenting on shit Americanisms, or, complicated rules in our sport. Personally I don't mind who takes part in sport provided they don't start to try take over it. Soccer, The half, calling attack offence, the list is long and getting longer. Keep it in America unless it's worth sharing. No disrespects to the American blues, it's a generality and was fair comment from @blue1948

Are you serious? My only point was that players in the NBA have been known to pad there stats by intentionally.missing shots. If that is too complicated for you, then fuck off.

I know what you mean. I'm constantly being told to keep my shit Englishisms out of the country over here. Things like calling wide receivers strikers, the plate the wicket, and calling the shortstop silly mid on. Seeing how much it annoys the natives, I can see how this annoys you.


And it is stupid and petty when Americans do the same thing. It is insular, nativist, and boring.

Gueye is a better version of Phil Neville, who was boss at what he did and nothing else

Every team needs a spoiler, someone who can break up what the opposition do and give the ball to someone good, which is what Neville did and what Gueye does - the main difference with Gueye is that he can also do a bit with the ball every now and then.

He's one of the few at the club who should be kept around at the moment.

Your are undervaluing Gueye. Phil Neville never came close to putting up the sort of defensive numbers that Gueye does, nor was he able to cover so much of the field.
