I know it's very early, but Lindelof isn't filling me with confidence! Last season I hadn't heard of Bailly but he came in and dominated. Lindelof looks a bit lost. Think we should have gone for VVD personally. Prem proven (although over priced but who isn't in this market) . I realise it's no a rumour just had to get it off my chest.

I thought Lindelof started shaky last night but thought he grew into the game and looked much better second half but I'm hardly surprised he's getting written off already it's a common theme on here.

VVD would've been ideal now, but we've got Lindelof so let's get behind him rather than judge him off a few pre-season friendlies. We'll have a better idea about him after a few months.

If you all remember Vidic and Evra were very poor when they initially came, albeit in January, but it took that half season for either of them to come good .

Last nights game just shows we are closer than we have been but still so very far away from where we should be .

At least 7 squad players not Manchester United players and it's the first era in as long as I can remember when we have nobody who loves the badge, who would die for the club, our team used to be full of these.

It will be a battle for top 4 again, hopefully with nicer football than what we have all witnessed over the last few years .

Great points fellas, Vidic did look ropey and look what he went on to do. Am probably guilty of unrealistic expectations and after 4 games he deserves support not criticism. Roll on Sunday nice win and 3pts.

I think lindelof will turn out fine like you said he just needs some time what worries me is whilst he is getting used to things we will have to play smalling or jones.

The question is after pre season who deserves to start.

Lindelof looked much better in the 2nd half last night, really grew into the game and that will do him the world of good. I would play Jones and Bailly on sunday and gradually bring Lindelof into the team once we are playing well, can tell he has bags of ability so I am sure he will be fine.

Give the lad some time.

I remember Vidic first few games well, he looked an absolute dud. I think people underestimate the step up in pressure being at this club brings with it, Lindolf will come good I'm sure most of the pundits and scout reports state his mental strength as one of his main attributes.

I really think we need to address the fullbacks, we have Matic now which I personally feel is a great acquisition to give the team balance. We could really do with improving our fullbacks though. A lightning quick winger with amazing ball control and end product would be the icing on the cake. Ousamane Dembele would be perfect for us in my opinion.

I remember ADMS's first games and he looked amazing.

Vidic and Evra were noticeable bad, so what, what does that have to do with Lindelof? There have been plenty of players that have been signed that have done a lot better than Lindelof. Just taking the worst example we can remember doesn't make it ok or mean that Lindelof will improve to the Vidic level (or further) . It's like people saying Ronaldo took time to settle, to jusitfy Depay's performances, how did that end up? Same with Evra/ Shaw and countless others.

I'd love Lindelof to turn out to be a Vidic clone, but using the worst thing about Vidic to justify it is too much of a stretch in my book. Early days but it's a pet hate of mine this line of thinking, because it excuses literally everything and means nothing.

Beast I don't think people are making that correlation, I think we are merely saying it's too early to pass judgement on the lad.

09 Aug 2017 10:37:35
He's played a few friendlies for god sake!

09 Aug 2017 14:23:15
Definitely too early to pass judgement I agree.

I don't understand why Vidic is mentioned in that case. Lindelof hasn't even started yet, so how do we know he will be as slow as Vidic to get going for example?

Just a little gripe I have with people picking extremes to justify a point.
