Finally we got to see Samu away from that RW spot i always thought he would do better centrally or on the left.

He should play a bit more freely and its great when he is central because he presses so well and so regularly

Agree.


His first months on the right flank was refreshing to see after years of Susoball. But it has become very predictable and uninspiring now to an extent where I think even he's bored of it.
He needs variation. In Villarreal they used to even deploy him as mezz'ala at times.
He may not have the physique, but he has the technique and tempo to survive outside right-wing island.

He has a decent skillset and is a hard worker overall, so I think people are a bit too harsh. But, it looks to me that what's missing from becoming a great player is that he's a bit of simpleton (Theo looks similar tbh :lol:)

Samu is true Milanisti drug war hero.

Samu is a childhood Milan fan?

I will never know how this man ever became a professional footballer let alone play for Milan.

He has legs like twigs, no composure, a weak shot and monumentally thick. I can't stand to watch him a minute longer.

Please go.

Tears at the end of the match meant to be his farewell to San Siro?

Is that it between him and Milan?

If that is the case, good luck in Spain dear cocaine.

Flyweight pride for ever.

He's like a spicy version of Saelemakers. He is not better or worse, they on the same level.

I forgive you Samu.

Please stay.

I don't. That cross from him was supposed to be for Zlatan in case you weren't watching. It fell so far short of it's intended target though which is pathetic.

The sheer incompetence of the Hellas defender doesn't suddenly change Samu into a God of football.

If anything, we got lucky that his lacking abilities worked in our favor.

Still a joke though. :lol:

Probably true all things considered. But Saelemakers is actually growing and improving.

Castillejo isn't.
