    He had some decent moments in the first half.

    Hugely frustrating performance, but I've a few mates who support Chelsea and judging by what I've heard from them when he was at Chelsea he has a tendency to this. Some games he produces, a lot of other games he can be frustrating.

    I think at first half he was decent should've got assist the 2nd half like most of our attack gone quite

    I thought he was largely OK, not sure why people think he was bad. Petered out heavily in the 2nd half but he was positive in the 1st. Just feel like the players aren't quite on his wavelength yet, and he like the others tried to force it as much as possible and ended up giving away the ball.

    Looked most likely to make things happen in the first half and but faded in the 2nd half.

    Reluctant to shoot for some reason. Has a good shot on him, hope he gathers confidence back in terms of shooting

    Sums it up, too many of our players were just ok or borderline poor and it culminated in the performance we saw.

    Didn't do anything today in a poor team performance

    Yeah I’ve been told about this as well. Difficult to know if this was one of those days though as the whole team was poor.

    Thought he was good today myself, arguably our best player although that’s not saying much.

    He plays the correct pass in the build up and can carry the ball. He’s not going to play really incisive final balls like Cesc but he has a skill set no one else in our team has.

    We looked very poor once he came off. We really need Aouar though so we can add to him.

    He was one of our better players in the 1st half. And some of his runs in the 2nd half were good but our passes from deep were really bad.

    brings stability to our lineup. Saw him more then once being the first midfielder to run back to help defense
    does those little things that are so crucial, yet, often those samw ones are easily overlooked

    This is what we are going to get from Willian - decent and tidy in possession, can be a threat with a some space/on the counter but he's not a massive difference maker on his own.

    Bit too much praise last week for 3 "assists" and probably a bit too much criticism for last night's performance.
  19. Rex Banter

    Yeah agree with this. He’s a neat and tidy player as in he can carry the ball well and play the correct pass to advance a move 9 times out of 10.

    He’s not a difference maker in terms of incredible final balls or dribbling past two or three players but we don’t have anyone like him in our squad who can do that.

    The assists last week needed the strikers to do a bit of work but this isn’t news. He offers you a 7/10 performance every game with his work rate and intelligence but it’s rare you get much higher than that.

    For a free signing I’m more than happy with that.

    Yep, agree with that - wasn't so much slating his assists, more so pointing out that there wasn't much difference in his 2 performances.
