I know he has his own performance thread, but some interesting points here (and comments beneath).
For me, he's not the pressing concern at all, priorities are elsewhere but I also think he wouldn't be a massive loss to the side and could be pretty easily replaced.
Needs replaced as a priority IMO.
I think he is one of the main reasons we appear weak and uncertain at the back at times....the players in front of him have little or no confidence in him.
His much vaunted “distribution“ of the ball is a total myth, with most of his long kicks out either finding touch or the opposition centre half’s head and in both circumstances the ball is coming back toward our goal.
Then there is the arrogance....the way he berated Seamus and Digne in the Arsenal game when these two players, whom alternate as team skipper BTW, took him to task over poor positioning which shoukd have seen us conceding a goal.
