Agreed, looking at a team like Liverpool it’s obvious what modern fullbacks can bring. You could even argue Rodriguez is a more technically sound player than Theo, but it’s so obvious what Theo brings with his energy and movement, far more valuable.
I hope we keep Calabria and Conti. I think both are good, not great players. Fullbacks like Calabria are still useful, and will he needed for some games when Conti doesn’t work. Conti has the higher ceiling though, and he deserves to keep getting games. It takes time to become the player he once was
Stop. RicRod can only turn one way and pass with one foot. He struggles to control the ball and has fallen over multiple times gifting the opposition chances. He needs ample space to make a forward pass. He may be able to play a pretty pass in training but as soon as he is crowded he is negated.
Theo uses physical abilities more than technique per se but he is much calmer under pressure and can get out of trouble and has shown the ability to shoot with both feet.
