You are a funny old man or maybe your memory is starting to fade.
Napoli parked the bus? Are you talking about the Italian team we played a couple of weeks ago - FYI they had
57% Possession, 14 shots and 4 on target against our paltry 4 off target. But yeah they were parking the bus!!!
I can understand a Reds fan claiming we are the bestest and greatest team ever, that sort of stuff is best left to the youngsters.
As for an agenda your subconscious bias is quite apparent, "Fabinho was slow on the turn", "slow off the mark" apparently "goes to ground too often which will cost us at some point", "the opposition were sh*te".....................Not one mention of him putting in a performance befitting of a DM.
Maybe if you had not nailed your colours to the mast so strongly with your "midfield general" who controls and dictates play like a regista, something which only you and a couple of others on here can see, it might be easier to for you to see Fabinho in one game made more tackles than Henderson has all season, more forward runs with the ball, recycled the ball to the front players with a pace we have not seen all season
We looked like a balanced midfield with a player who at the base of midfield is technically comfortable on the ball.
He's not bad for one brought in as cover for RB.
You can try and twist things whichever way you want fella, I don't really give a f**k.
Your agenda is clear.
You're trying to big up a player based on spurious stats and bullshit arguments.
My observations on Fabinho are simply that; observations.
He IS slow on the turn, he DOES take time to get up to speed (like so many said about Can), and he DOES go to ground far too much and it WILL bite him in the arse at some point.
I think the guy has plenty of potential, but also a lot to learn.
Thinking he's the finished article and without fault is as deluded as thinking that Red Star are anything other than a mediocre (at best) team.
I understand you think that sliding tackles are wonderful and mean a player is terrific, but sadly that's not really the case.
Perhaps you could also post the positives I said about him?
Perhaps you could stop relying on one result to prove a point that doesn't really exist?
Perhaps you, in your desire to slag one player off at the expense of another could try to understand that it's not either or, and that some of us don't play that game, and can appreciate all our players whilst not spending our time slagging off this years forum scapegoat.
Or is that too complicated for you?
You know, to hold more than one thought in your head at a time.
or maybe, just maybe, you could treat my observations and opinions with the respect you demand for your own, instead of trying to insist that Red Star Belgrade are anything but a pretty sh*t side, although since you are now trying to paint him as primarily a back up for RB, I won't hold my breath for anything other than more bullshit.
