mentioned Ndidi on here a while back and got chewed for it. Shappy especially made it known it was not fifa and get my head out of the clouds.

But alas the great Shappy has spoken and Ndidi is now a great player.

{Ed047's Note - how weird. 🤦‍♂️🤣

I think I've always been fairly consistent about players. I have always said Ndidi is a good player, this season he has really sharpened up his defending. He always got high numbers of tackles and interceptions but he also made too many fouls often in silly or dangerous positions.

However, as good as he is at shielding the back four he still lacks in ability on the ball. He passing is limited, uncreative and safe. Nothing wrong with that.

However, that might be the thing that holds him back from moving to an elite club. The top clubs expect to have the majority of possession during a game and won't have to defend all that much. For a player like Ndidi who thrives in winning back possession and defending there is less importance on this kind of player.

Look how City play, if you put Ndidi in there instead of Fernandinho or Rodri then City lose a player who can start attacks and recycle possession quickly and progressively but gain a player who'll win a few more tackles in midfield. The issue is City normally have 60-70% possession most weeks and few teams will play through the middle against City so the ball won't be in the areas that Ndidi plays in for him to win it.

Ndidi is a great player for a side that will be expected to defend as much as the attack most weeks. For a side that will only spend 15-20% of any given match defending at most, his usefulness will be greatly diminished.

Altho he not an amazing passer he plays forward passes most of the time . he will easy play for top club in NXT 2 years . he's a lot better than your giving him credit for . his reading of the game and immense pressing and timing of tackle means the team can play higher and wins balls back quickly with player like him in the team . not everyone needs to be an amazing passer in a team tat keeps the ball .

{Ed001's Note - I would rather have Ndidi than Rodri in the Prem all day every day. His passing is much better than Shaps is giving him credit for.}

Can't get Kante. He's the next best thing. Get in him and saul with a number 10 and RW and we'd be seriously cooking.

A proper coach on top of that and it'd be a completely different side.

If they're still looking for a DOF, I'll step up 😂.

Personally I would look at Choudhury at Leicester if we were going to look at anyone.

I'd take Nididi in a heartbeat. I think he's highly under rated. It took some player to seemlessly fill Kantes boots which he did. I think as he's not got a huge loud personality he doesn't stand out sitting in midfield doing all the dirty work. I'd imagine he's probably very humble and professional given as he's doing a business degree as well I'd say he's the very type of player we should be signing.
