AWB

Can the meme that this guy can allegedly defend be put to bed? The guy stood out as the weak link in an already embarrassing defence yesterday. Late tracking back countless times, sliding around nowhere near the ball, beaten by Robertson and Mane all day. As for his attacking... That was some brilliant comedy. Trent sheits all over this guy in every department.

With greatest respect,
ttliv

He's a good young defender with potential. The idea that he's better than TAA defensively is insane in my opinion. Offensively there's no contest.

Reece James at Chelsea is better for me, then you have Walker and even Trippier. I can't see AWB having much of an England career unless TAA does move into midfield.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Like James a lot

Would be interested in seeing trent in midfield for England if it meant fitting them both in the team, considering the poor midfield options
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nah, you leave TAA where is is. Why jeopardize all those assists?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I think this is the best argument against it but you can have TAA in that De Bruyne role where he's crossing from the channel and still get a lot out of him.

It's a question of do you play your best players in their best positions or move them around to get in as much quality as possible. Trent would potentially be our only midfielder who is a threat going forward whilst being good defensively
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Just don’t think it makes sense. You have arguably the best right back in the world setting up goal after goal. Why move him to a position no ones seen him play in before.

its like the old discussion about moving Glen Johnson up onto the right wing too
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'd atleast like to see it happen is what I mean, trent should obviously be starting at RB for the euros

United fans needed something and he has done well overall, so he became their shining light
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Just like they are with Fred right now. He played ok yesterday, but he’s not good enough to lead a top midfield.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Totally agree with this.

Not sure why people think he’s turned a massive leaf over.

Some of his shots yesterday

He’s improved a lot since his early games, should just refrain from shooting though

It's not the same at all. Johnson was never a winger. TAA however has always been a midfielder until he came in and did well at right back. He has all the attributes needed to play in midfield. Not that I would move him for Liverpool at the moment, due to the reasons you mentioned. However for England it would make sense, with the way they play, to try it out.

He reminds me of Clyne. Decent defender but poor going forward.

AWB is a decent player, not good enough really to take a team to the next level but certainly good enough for a midtable team.

About palace's level, one might say

Once had a long argument and multiple mancs on my back because I said I didn't rate AWB.

Only thing that shut them up is when I told them how much I rate Daniel James and then they left me alone, happy that I rated their player.



It was on kneerash's thread.

my issue here is this.

a) crossing is poor
b) cant shoot
c) stopped working after 60mins and left james to do it all on his own.
d) is a diver inner. firmino put him on his backside Sunday. absolutely owned him. tackling late and getting away with it a few times is great but we will see how it goes.

hes a good physical player with pace but hes got to improve.
