He was slow from the first day he arrived.
Did he not arrive with a knee problem tho
Did he become slow or did we just overrate his pace because we were watching him in France?
PL is much more quicker and stronger.
Probably the latter. Looked proper pacy when i watched him boss Europa League against Salah's Roma.
Interesting point. Pepe looks a lot slower than he did in France too.
Not sure why people haven't seen this long ago. Gervinho also looked faster in france..
Speaking of Gervinho, he is brilliant at Parma. Happy for him
Possibly because it's not just about speed, even though that's what first gets noticed. Players like Mbappe and Hazard have the balance and strength to hold off challenges while running at speed - especially after the first 10 yards. Henry did so prior to them as well, so players like that look rapid anywhere.
Me too, i wanted it to work for him but he frustrated me so much here
If France had called up Laca instead of Gignac in 2016, does anybody think they would currently be both World and European champions...
...reckon Laca would have scored this myself.
Think Gignac done well there to get a shot off. Issue for the French has been the Benzema situation, even now, I think he’s the missing piece in what is a near perfect team
Gignac went into that tournament with some hype also, scored a bunch of goals for his club.
Anyway, you had Kevin Gameiro who had an outstanding season for Seville, think he would’ve been ahead of Laca too anyway - similar to Ben Yedder now.
Gignac was playing in Mexico at that time, was always so confused he was called up when they already had a better player in Giroud anyway.
I reckon the France team that reached the World Cup final in 2006 would beat the current one.
Laca barely behind Auba in goal contributions per minute. He's crap though I suppose.
Got a breakdown on away goals, goals against top 6, critical goals etc?
No. I just post stuff, dont even check if its legit.
Think in 2016 Giroud the best contributions to minutes in the league.
Best in any league I think it was.
Goals against top 6 (league): United, Sp**s x2, Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool
Auba: Unitedx2, Sp**s x3
