I’m going to give up posting for a normal life and just co-sign yours
I agree with everything you said until the end, Torreira is part of the problem like the rest he shouldn't be absolved of blame because he runs around a lot and is a fan favourite.
Torreira lacks physicality and stamina, our midfield gets bypassed a lot because he gets out of position trying to chase a tackle. Our whole team has chemistry issues.
Spot on, I'm afraid.
Did he make one single pass forward? Except for the one he started their attack that lead to their goal, of course.
he has made several passes forward in earlier games under Arteta
As I said in the match thread you are the only person on the face of planet earth who has made an association of Torreira losing the ball to the equalising goal. The turnover wasn’t even included in the MOTD highlights.
Probably our best and most consistent player since Arteta took over and deserves our praise as the current time - keep it up Lucas!!
I don't watch MOTD. Makes sense now why your knowledge of the game is so poor.
People still reject the idea he is ball winner midfielder not creative playmaker. Do people realize the times he won the ball back? Or the amount of times he won the ball back in our box or protecting the defense? That what he does.
He made one bad pass that was intercepted near Sheffield box that's doesn't mean that hie fault of the Sheffield goal it's doesn't even lead to counter attack because we have 7 players in our area
No he isnt, I was at the game and felt the same, it was a stupid pass to even attempt as more often than not it goes to their player and then you are also out of position, however there was too long after it to blame it solely for the game, him and saka were our best players but he ****ed up with that pass
As for for the motd point
Was just pointing out that the BBC editing team, whose job it is to provide a contextual background for each goal felt that the turnover was irrelevant. If you want to use that as a jumping off point for a personal attack then you are of course well within your rights to do so.
I respect your rights to have views bother, even if they promote negativity and animosity.
Have a pleasant Sunday.
I'm just mirroring your and others' behavior. Hilarious how rattled you're and unable to take it isn't it.
99% of your posts are in the Özil thread posting rubbish Alan Shearer and other pashun experts on MOTD project into you. How's that for spreading negativity and animosity?
Torreira clearly cost us yesterday. Any other player does that, and they're hung for it. I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of it.
A simple click on my posting history will confirm that this statement is a complete and uttter fabrication.
I hope everything is going OK for you mate? Have a good week. Let’s back Lucas, a player on form at the moment!
Right, my bad, I forgot a good chunk, where you post in large letters.
Anyhow, as I just said, I'm just mirroring what others are doing.. yet you're getting your knees twisted because it doesn't suit your agenda. How convenient.
I feel bad for slagging him off during Emery reign. Thought he has been excellent recently.
He's not shown anything so far which would make me build the whole team around him.
Why doesn't everyone do the same in the Özil and Laca threads?
Judge everyone by the same stick.
That's not what I said.
Well, it implies that we change the tactics and move a few players just to mask his deficiencies. I would only be willing to do that for a really special player.
Wenger sold Vieira for Cesc. Also did it for RvP, Ramsey, Alexis, Özil.
But I'd rather sell Torreira or keep him on the bench, rather than change our whole shape.
Is he the answer to win the league? No. Is he low down on the list of players we should be thinking of replacing? Yes for me.
Think we should play 3 CMs and have him at the base with two more ahead of him. Think with a more limited role he is a good ball winner and a good forward passer with the game in front of him.
It doesn't imply that. It implies a hierarchy of priorities.
Replacing the entire midfield in one summer is a tall order. What I'm saying is that replacing Torreira ranks last in that hierarchy for me. Xhaka and Özil need to be replaced first, then possibly Torreira.
I think we should switch to a three-man midfield with or without Torreira - so that's irrelevant.
Laca and Özil haven't show anything lately to give them praise
