Sadly become one of the 3 priority positions to buy for in the summer (rb cm st*). Never been technical but had pace and aggression to rely on. His decline is down to losing that half a yard but also full backs becoming even more important in terms of technique and passing.
I'm not thinking of Coleman particularly as we imo did well to keep him, but we've a long history of keeping our best players beyond their peak. Especially under moyes. And under moyes this turned out to be a hindrance. As a club struggling for cash back then we should have took more risks in selling one or two of them at peak time and peak value to create a better team. Teams in the past and in similar situations to us are fucking experts at it (atletico, Dortmund the prime examples of being yeah ok he can go cos we can replace with x y and z)
