I was not saying he played “terrible” but subpar is subpar.
He was the #10 in the game, not #8 or #6
Need more contribution from the attacking side, hope he will do better and adapt to the new tactics soon.
Hasn’t done enough for me in the opening two games. He put a good shift in against Palace but his offensive game is not looking as sharp as it was last season. Hope the armband isn’t weighing him down in some weird way.
I think we a lot of our play is currently going down the left with Zinchenko-Xhaka-Marti/Jesus. Last season we pretty much had one creative outlet in Odegaard so it pumped up his numbers as he was all we had to rely on.
I think he’s likely going to be absolutely fine this season he had the perfect technical quality for the team so you pretty much never have to worry about him being in the long run.
Definitely want to see more from him but also not concerned too much
Fucking hell two games in and people are already throwing him and Saka under the bus lol
All it is is that Martinelli has stepped up his game, Jesus is a level above and Zinchenko boosts that left hand side so much that Odegaard and Saka aren’t single-handedly carrying the team like they did last season.
