Players like Cresswell, Dawson, Fabianski and Antonio are getting on a bit and we can all see the faults more and more so they need to be bench players at best. Our biggest problem is our leaky defence which puts every other player under pressure. When we where playing well it didn’t matter if they scored first because the confidence was there that we would score especially at home but now as soon as they score we drop our heads and start passing sideways or backwards leaving players like Benny, Bowen and Scammacca out of the equation. Even Decs seems to pass the ball more backward then forward lately. Hopefully Aguerd will be back for Leeds but he will need help and until Zouma is back Dawson will have to do but he seems to have his mind on going home and is not what he’s been for us the last couple of seasons. Against Brentford Moyes dropped Soucek and put Paqueta in his place which is where he plays for Brazil, he’s not a number 10 and until we conceded we played ok.
Looking at last season the shit set in early, Antonio kept flying off to Jamaica and lost his form but Bowen came good, Cresswell kept getting beat by anyone that wanted to get past him and as we all know got himself sent off and suspended and we lost our chance to play Champions league, Rice decided he wanted to go forward more so to cater to him Soucek got told to stay back and he lost his way, Coufal had a hernia because of what should have been a sending off and hasn’t been the same since. We are going to lose Ashby because he can’t get a game, Moyes needs to play the best player in their natural position instead of catering to their whims and things will turn around. We have the players to do it if they can get a chance.
