    I noticed the same. But then his performance speaks for himself.

    I don't think this whole English speaking thing is bad. When faced with weaker "provincial" teams, I'd even prefer the coach to give instructions in English so as to conceal our tactical changes. We have a squad that's quite capable (and educated) to understand English, barring Brozo of course.

    Speaking of English, the few English players of Serie A in the past have often struggled, while young adapted beautifully.
    "As usual in Italy some decisions are made without sense and logic. The dark side of the football that we tried to clean up returns to light".

    My username has nothing to do with the player of liverpool fc, it is a reference to an Italian novel.

    His goal today is exactly what politano was trying to do all year long for us last season.

    Called this dude a scrub when he came in. Given his low cost, cant say the same now.

    4 goals + 4 assists in Serie A. 1 goal + 1 assist in Europa League.

    Only half a season. Came to a new country during a pandemic. Biggest surprise for sure.

    Probably because Bastoni never expect him to help at defense.

    The decision to shoot was annoying. He could have gotten closer to the box, he could have passed to Dumbro who was in better position. The GK could have saved it had he better positioned himself.

    P.s. I'm kidding , a grandissimo goal Ashley

    Four months of genuinely quality football. A few errors sprinkled in, but overall a guy who impacted the matches he played in positively. Just really impressive.

    It's great to watch him do well, gives everything on the pitch and this wing back role suits him so well. He was attacking left winger who won PL young player of the year and was in PL team of the year as LW, started over Di Maria, then started to play as LB and played well. He is a great professional. Apart from CB and GK he played in every position.

    Hopefully he will win Serie A before he retires.

    Pretty damn good return for a guy in his mid-30s in a brand new league. He couldn’t handle a full workload at his age but he’s a good asset to the squad.

    He's definitely been a positive acquisition. His role next season should be more limited, he's a liability against stronger teams but his grit has been influential against minnows.

    But let's not forget that we're paying him almost twice as much as Lautaro currently earns, to give some perspective.

    I think having Lukaku here and to some extent the arrival of Moses has helped him settle, otherwise he probably could have struggled as he has shown zero willingness to learn even the most basic Italian.

    Goals against Lazio and Atalanta though. Not bad for a liability against the bigger teams.

    Offensively all wing backs have the luxury of being the extra man and having many chances to enter into scoring chances.

    I am obviously talking about his defensive output here. He does have to carry the entire flank, as all wing backs in this system.

    I knew what you meant I just wanted to mention that, because goals do change games. He does struggle at times defensively no doubt but it’s almost impossible to find a perfectly balanced wingback.

    Pretty sure I bitched when he was signed. My bad and great signing. Hope he has another year in the tank. But defiantly need a better starter to get out of Champions league group stage and beat Juve next season

    He probably won the most trophies of all of our players (next to Sanchez, who I don't know if he is ours already) and it kinda shows. He is a hard worker.
