Useless Defenders

Post by BobHirst »

Danny Rose getting panned for his performance yesterday.
The week before João Pedro Cavaco Cancelo was criticized for his play.
Before that Héctor Junior Firpo Adames was singled out for his rubbish defending.

I wonder what they had in common ........ :?: :roll:

Cancelo is far from useless, one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

That's true.
It's also a big clue to what caused them to be criticized.

I know he is wing-back, an excellent attacking one indeed, still classed as a defensive player.

I admire Cancelo greatly, a smashing player imo!

I'm guessing Luke Shaw will be labelled "useless" after next weekends games.
