Maguire is able to do it for England and was able to do it for Leicester but the way we concede goals and set up to defend generally is awful.

We’ve bought in arguably the best header of the ball in the league (VVD probably pips him) and the best defensive right back in the league yet concede so many sloppy goals.

We were all worried about where are goals would come from when the season started and to an extent we have been proven right as we find it difficult to break down teams who sit back and we knew we would struggle if we had any major injuries. We have still done ok though with our attackers having some dips in form here and there.

The biggest contributing factor to our inconsistency has been our defence and this is the one area where Ole was backed. I’m not sure who is responsible for setting them up but whatever they’re doing is not working.

There are managers in the league who have set their teams up to be able to defend in an organised manner with so called lesser players. If we were not so incompetent in this department we would be in the top 4 for sure.

Are the board then right if they decide not to back Ole if the one area they did back him in, he can’t get right?

The midfield is over run in most of the games due to the lack of a proper combative defensive midfielder.
This inturn exposes our CB's even more.

I think that’s a factor and agree but we’ve been doing this all season.

The zonal marking at set pieces and playing offside come to mind the most and these can be rectified if we can organise the defence properly.

We don’t have the best midfield in the league but we definitely don’t have the worst.

As I said, other teams seem to be able to do it with “lesser players”.

He never really did it for Leicester or England, just been massively overrated, same deficiencies in his defensive play now as he's had for the last 2/ 3 seasons. £80m down the drain. Need to sell him as soon as if we want improve at the back, though the club lacks ruthlessness throughout, no wonder the likes of Jones, Smalling and Young stayed here for 7/ 8yrs + and continue to do so.

Sell him? He’s by far our best centre half.

20 Jan 2020 12:43:18
Sell him we only just bought him😂😂😂.

Some have just lost their mind GDS2 :)

I think saying he’s never been able to do it is really harsh.

As well as our selves, City were in for him albeit not at the crazy price we paid. When we paid for him, he was bringing qualities to club we did not have. Someone to help clear up long balls, clear up set pieces and someone who’s confident enough to step forward time to time and pass forwards.

It’s unfortunate that Tuanzebe has been injured as I think he’s our second best CB.

I don’t think we’ve really seen the best of him. I hope there’s more to come or we could be looking at another really expensive mistake.

Amz how often have you seen tuanzebe play 90 mins?
He is still a way off the level reqired bailly if fit will jump ahead of him no doubt about it.

20 Jan 2020 13:35:38
He's by far our best centre half? That sums it all up then, forget he's made Lindelof worse aswell. What difference does it make if we just bought him Ken? He just isn't good enough and never will be, flog him whilst we can gain something back on the ridiculous fee we paid for him. Having the likes of Maguire, Shaw, Andreas, Lingard in the team will literally guarantee us not winning the league for another 10 years, same fans happy with Maguire are clamouring for Grealish, even seen someone on here mention Lewis DUNK🤣.

Agree with Ken. Sometimes by not playing, a player seems to become better.

20 Jan 2020 16:33:00
Just from what I’ve seen when he has played Ken. He seems assured, quick and can tackle well. He doesn’t seem to cause any panic when he does play as one of the cb’s. Looks pretty decent on the ball too. I think Bailly is great but he can be a headless chicken at times and not always the most reliable. Lindelof is really struggling to adapt here and I would have Tuanzebe ahead of him for sure.

I think he is a decent project but miles off starting weekly for us tbh.
Talk to any villa fan they will tell you he is well short of what's required just yet.
