Have to admire his confidence. Always looks for the ball and tries to make things happen, not always to great effect but he never lets it effect him. Has been one of our better players recently.
I was interested to see how he'd do back in an attacking position with less defensive responsibility, thought maybe playing at left back/wing back had allowed him more space but proved not to be the case. Should have picked up a goal or 2 and an assist. Keep playing like that and the goals will hopefully come. Would be nice to have seen Shaw working with him down the left. Maybe on Wednesday.
He has certainly bought into the lvg philosophy. He has had a really good season and you have to respect him for that. I still think that although a really strong squad player he might be one of the ones that drops out of the first team as new faces are brought in.
Rvp and Falcao I think are a little past there best. In my opinion we need a quality striker. Like you I am not a great one for stats but I am reliably Informed that Di Maria in this poor season had more assists than young in his best season. It is not a criticism of young, he has had a top season and is rightly a first pick. I just think he will ultimately be heavily under threat with new arrivals. That said a healthy squad means every player should be under threat
