His movement needs to improve to establish himself in the tactics of Rino

Good game by him.... his passing is so good (short and long) and good at holding the ball

Rodriguez lost every bit of confidence under montella plus the joke of physical preparations but make no mistake he’s one of the best transfers we have had. He’ll come good in time. I’m not even worried, you can’t turn into shit in a period of 3 months.

He’ll get better I have no doubt about it

I honestly see it the other way around: There's no way in hell anyone with even basic understanding of the sport would highly rate RR. He's extremely average at everything he does and is in no way at Milan's level.

He costed us the derby points, not a single assist or a goal in seria a (can't recall any at least), injury prone, nothing impressive offensively nor defensively, and way too slow for what is already considered a slow league. What is good about RR? I really don't see it.

I believe we are yet to see what this guy has to offer. He looked better with Borini being the runner guy who pulls away defenders so RR had enough space for a cross.

Now with Jack and Hakan on his side, who are also decent crossers, he just give them the ball as they are in more advanced positions up the field. That kinda took away from his crossing, but i have hope he will find a way to use his strengths

He is solid, in my opinion he would really shine with a fast winger like Deulofeu in front of him.

if crossing is his main asset then, having fast winger would deem him even more useless. if anything a better playmaker would suit him more. since hakan is improving slowly, hopefully they can build some chemistry.

I can totally see where you're coming from. I assume you have never seen him play before he came to Milan, so I can totally understand that one would think "oh well, if that's all he has then what was all the fuzz in summer for?"

Those who have seen him play on his usual standards before know what I am talking about when I say that he has a lot more to give to us. Montella has destroyed him as he destroyed confidence and fitness of the rest of the team. Remember when he just arrived? He was on fire in pre-season, assisting and scoring left and right. In Serie A he scored too (I think it actually was against SPAL after a fk). Remember in the first couple of months of this season when among a bunch of horribly playing lads he was one of those who still had a decent run? My hopes are that Gattuso will be able to soon get him on his usual levels.

So if your question is what RR is about I can first tell you what he's not about: He's not the fast-pace FB who runs down to the line to cross or score, he'll never be that. Offensively he's more a slightly aggregated playmaker, holding ball in the 2/3 line and looking for that early-cross or cut-through pass no one expects from a FB. He also is phenomenal at shifting the play from one side to another with his long-passes. I mean just look at our 1st goal, how it arrived (timemark, 0:30):



He can do much more than seen lately, where he seemed very timid for his usual standards and I think Gattuso is very well aware of that as he stressed it out many times in the past that he thinks RR can do more.

Defensively he usualy is very composed and calm. His strenghth are actually his very well timed tacklings. He rarely lets an attacker go because of his exceptional timing, which makes up for his lack of pace. I remember games when he had Messi or Di Maria in his pocket and speed wasn't even an issue. Sadly these days it's not the RR who is defensively so confident and almost flawless. Lazzari was on fire, true, but that shouldn't happen that he can overrun RR so easily. RR is also very good at holding the ball, you can see that he rarely looses a ball to the opponent, even when under pressure. Finally, even when you don't see him sprinting all the time, he's in almost every game of ours in the top 3 of km / game. He's not afraid of doind the dirty work. Very valuable asset.

^^ gotta agree with this... he is a little slow but looked great in preseason.

Doesn't look good at all though. And has been playing really badly.

Having said that his second half vs SPAL was probably his best performance for us this season. And he's miles better than what came before him - antonelli, Antonini, DeS, Mesbah, Constant etc.

good analysis, but i don't see him much valuable for an ambitious team

The problem with RR is, as my friend from Germany rightly said, he plays well when the team is good. When the team goes down he'll go down. MAybe that can also be fixed.

He is a valuable player, has important technical dots and is a smart player in both ways. I expect more from him. Also he can help as a midfielder.

I feel Milan did not use him so far as we could.
