Player Valuation: £35m
We've been conceding on average 2 goals every game apart from the 1st game.

The gap between midfield and defence has been clear in each game.

By having James in LAM, the CMs must be dynamic enough to keep the ball around James. Once losing possession opposition teams have exposed James' lack of defensive skills.

Today, with Godfrey's lack of RB experience and James' defensive limitation, we have been exposed again the same against RS.

Iwobi is poor, seen enough evidence. Not good enough to beat his man, not good enough in possession or link up play. I'd rather have Gordon or Bernand.


Great turn of pace, an eye for goal...
Iwobi has been shocking, slows play down every time with too many little touches before looking up. Would love to see his pass accuracy as well.

This is it. One of his strengths is supposed to be his passing, but he's lingering on decisions too long as his position quickly worsens, there were a couple of moments he could have laid it off to Digne

Bernard shouts are awful. Last player we need on the pitch when we’re already struggling to compete.

Gordon on for Iwobi, Nkounkou or even Tommy D for Godfrey.

Gomes for Sig around the 60-70 mark.

Player Valuation: £8m
Absolutely nothing on our right side from attack. Everything goes to Iwobi on the left who wastes most things he touches. We miss Coleman. Coleman's forward movement pulls players towards him creating more space centrally & on the left so when James pings balls wide, the receiver has more time & space. Godfrey needs to use his pace a bit & go more forward. Our players naturally seek out the left so we need to beef up the right side to change this game.
