Strafing ground targets
- May 27, 2011
If 10 games is enough of a sample for you to arrive at that conclusion then fair enough. Meanwhile Clyne is already a starter in the Premier League and amongst the best at his position and a full International. Think Manquillo has along way to go to approach that level and tbh I doubt he will get there. He had a huge chance last season we really struggled at RB and even with him being a specialist defender Brendan still opted to play just about anyone infront of Manquillo.I said he probably won't end up being much better than Manquillo.
And I stand by that as well, I liked Manquillo and think he's easily better than the other young fullbacks we have at the club. His stats per game were better than Clyne's as well, a smallish sample though admittedly.
That isn't a harsh assessment as I rate Manquillo highly. I'm not a particularly negative poster so this isn't a case of 'never being pleased', that's my opinion.
