Don't think he's that bad, he still has good moments but I think his levels are a lot more variable than they once were likely due to injuries and age. Consistency is huge at this level, as one or two mistakes can be severely punished as we saw from both of our fullbacks yesterday. He should be used as we are using Baines now, much more sparingly as a backup option.
IF Brands can find another Digne level player for the right, I'll be impressed. It's what we need though.
