Yep its slightly annoying that Ibra wants to take the FKs. He even wants to take them when Hakan is on the pitch.

I am ok with him taking PKs even though I think Kessie is clearly our best PK taker but he should leave the FKs to Hakan and Tonali.

Yeah, Ibra is great but he has to accept that he's 39 and some aspects of his game have declined. Shot power and accuracy are not what they used to be...

He can't play with Kessie, he did decent with Bennacer.

Levels, Tonali needs to find his. Has to learn how to play quicker, especially against non Italian teams. I guess the transition from playing in a 3 to a 2 is taking him some time to get use to also. The good thing is, he's still only 20.5

To be fair the guy dominated Kessie too who has been in fantastic form.

I liked Tonali's set pieces. Pity one of our players couldn't get a significant head on any of them.

His passing is not the issue. At least not against Lille. It was actually one of his better performances in that aspect. It wasn't the usual overambitious, difficult passes that are intercepted half the time.

The main problem is that he's too easy to get past. He falls for simple tricks, players run around him on the ground and beat him with ease in the air.

We can't afford to field him against decent teams. The midfielders need to be extra-ordinary ball winners to sustain this ultra-attacking system. He's far from it at the moment.


Sigh.........

He has better passing combinations with Bennacer, but he's too weak defensively regardless of partner.

Bennacer would have been the one facing and neutralizing renato sanchez
Tonallis best match was with bennacer.
Kessies best matches are with bennacer.

We need as many great ball winners as possible to minimize the risks of this risky approach.

Can't afford to have someone like Tonali as one of the pivots against strong European sides who know how to deal with 4-2-3-1 high press.

I am convinced we would still win the game if we play Kessie+Tonali in the midfield. We just had our worst performance. Even with Krunic and Castillejo as wings as long as all players are fit (got enough rest), the chance is still there. Not to mention if we play our best players upfront.

Tonalli is not the weakest part in that game. Our play especially our attacking performance was the first to blame.

Exactly. Send 30 million + Tonali + Krunic to Lille and sign Renato Sanches and Boubakary Soumare. Instant upgrade!!!1

Renato is not a great ball winner either.
His best quality is dribbling.

An unreliable version of Bennacer.


Whoever pays 50m+ for him is making a big mistake.

We dont own tonali to send him anywhere, if you want him you have to pay another 25 m for that fraud.

Again this guy was the worst man of the match in italy against farmers and playing just 45, i dont get how can someone be that bad even though playing with a team winning 4 - 0 in a friendly.
