  1. Idrissa Gana Gueye

    Think he's just a bit rusty. Shame he's missed 2 years of football he could have learned a lot from Barry. There was two under hit passes, although I'd blame Keane for one of them. There was one occasion where he was pissing about too much and they broke away. He was caught in possession a few times. But overall he was positive. Few clever turns and flicks as well as keeping his head up passing the ball with purpose and always showing for the ball.

    He probs already does that off his own back tbf.

    I usually give up trying to educate the masses

    Besic had no where near a 90% pass rate today but that was the best midfield performance we've had all season. Which says a lot about Gana and Schneiderlin as Besic could've cost us three goals (Keane partly responsible for one).
  5. Vlasic. The random generator for the Europa was our best scout this summer.
  6. Davy Klaassen

    I went to the top of the thread to see who this was about, thinking it would be Keane or Sandro. Klaassen didn't even cross my mind. He played well in tight spaces with Davies but has no chemistry at all with Sandro. He makes space going forward but is weak. Once he's used to the physical side he'll be a clever player for us. Just don't play him with Sandro as their styles don't compliment each other at all.

    Vaughan ran him ragged all game. Lucky for Keane Sunderland had no one supporting Vaughan otherwise he'd have been embarrassed. Played in himself, and was scared of the ball.

    Besic has played two hospital balls and Stek another other than that no one has been too shabby in possession. Vlasic playing really well, and Davies is a level above. Sandro is not and cold. Only player not doing well is DCL. The whole midfield are running and making gaps but when the ball gets near DCL its just not running his way, up until the goal any how. Vaughan looks good enough to come back home if he can keep putting in a shift like this. A lot stronger than he used to be and had been a nuisance all game lots of clever running and holding the ball up well.

    Gana doesn't turnover the ball well. His lack of ability to do so stunts the whole team going forward. Defensively he's a liability as he can't read the game and is constantly out of position. Gets wrongsided then chasing the shadow of the oppositions player who goes on to score.

    Jagielka I'd say is average championship to lower prem level. Whereas I don't think Gana would get a game for the local pub. He's a runner not a footballer. They do have one thing in common though, they are both terrible at reading the play and positioning themselves. You can't get away with only being reactive at this level.

    _______________Stek Kenny Holgate Keane Williams Besic _____Klaassen Davies Vlasic _______Sandro DCL I'm hoping DCL isn't on the wing. Could be interesting, just hope they've played enough in training to gel. No Schneiderlin or Gana so there's an improvement any way.
  13. Idrissa Gana Gueye

    One minute in and there has been 2 forward passes, and he ruins one by then tackling his own player, and the other with a shit shot. 1:50 (forward pass no. 3) he finally puts a decent ball through. Notice a lot of the highlights stop after he's won the ball.. Wonder how many of them were backwards passes or dangers balls making the next player lose possession?
  14. Ronald Koeman

    I moan Barkley doesn't try them through balls. I'd be happy if he did, it'd have an adverse effect on his stats but so what. Gana should have a higher pass % as he plays further back. I don't even know what your point is here, are you saying it doesn't matter what position you're in passing % should be the same?
  15. Ronald Koeman

    You're comparing one off missplaced passes to someone who is consistently shite at them. There is a huge difference in the quality and differculty of the passes. Rooney missplacing the odd pass does not in anyway justify the less than ametuer offerings from Gana.
