      But he wasn't this fragile in the Bundesliga. Something somewhere went terribly wrong with him physically.

      Who knows mate, the EPL is a much more physical league, maybe that.

      Could just be dumb luck, some players just seem to be more unlucky.

      He was superb in the Bundasliga and also started very well for us


      Last season during a number of games he was excellent- a fit Keita would be perfect for us , the problem is can’t rely on his staying fit

      Most times when he plays is very good.

      Just the fitness thing, such a shame.

      Until the club announce it, it’s all just clickbait, twitter, media bullshit. No use discussing it.

      🤷🏻‍♂️💩

      Thanks mate. This really useful to my health  :D

      Just play him until he breaks down, he’s miles ahead of Henderson in everything he does.

      That’s the first time I actually gave up on Naby since he’s arrived.

      Was watching him, he was slow to release passes, bypassed easily in midfield, couldn’t stick a challenge and to me, he didn’t look too interested.


      Then I read others say he had a good game which makes me think, was I more stoned then I thought?

      I don’t think I was!

      He had a 6 or 7 out of 10 game as far as I'm concerned. Nothing extraordinary, but solid, press resistant and actually helped with the defensive workload. Those simple little things were nowhere to be seen from out midfield in the past 2 or 3 games and largely missing since the start of the season so that could explain why some of us (me included) felt like it was a pretty good performance from him (we're starved).

      I'd take that change as well

      I've said on here he was out best and most consistent midfielder last season and stand by that.

      Without being brilliant I thought the lad did ok , have always thought this lad can play but he needs games unfortunately he’s never been able to sustain a run in the team , on the plus our midfield actually  looked like a midfield last night bit of tenacity about them , and got us going forward with some nice passing ,

      The BBC sport website has a feature where everyone can rate the players out of 10 and it gives an average. Naby is rated as our worst player last night (5.58 out of 10).
      I thought he did ok, maybe we are conditioned to MF players being really bad in the last few months.

      100% along with Bajcetic.

      I'd start those two at the weekend.

      Naby gets a lot of hype but I thought he had a 6/10 game, some good spells but a lot of rubbish in there too. The other two in midfield were far superior.

      At the moment Naby should be getting in ahead of Hendo on that right side of the midfield three though.

      First full game in how long ? Tired a little to the end but if you can't see how he benefits the midfield with his attributes I can't help you

      Does anyone dismiss his contribution when he’s healthy? He’d be a great player to have for sure, he just needs to be available.

      Apparently he has been available for 81 out of the last 109 games


      most of the games missed are this season with his hamstring

      I'm not a fan of keita ... as you probably know. But, I did praise him last night ... and I had him in my starting team at Brighton where he wasn't picked. Had him to start last night and I've put him to start against Chelsea.

      It's never personal ... its about the team and right now, if fit I'd put him in it and hope he showed me why.

      Decent game last night ... won some tackles and if he can actually string some games together he'd offer more than fabinho, Henderson etc. Big IF though.

       Can understand  fully frustration shown towards him especially around fitness issues . Played a lot last season and if anything possibly underused but then wham another lengthy layoff. He isn't the only one injured now Jones and others laid low. Suppose just got to get as much out of him as possible whilst fit

      Heard broke down due to salary decrease around fitness concerns which in all fairness he can't really argue with but then again sure new clubs will be bearing that in mind maybe going on a free will.compensate for that
