Another massive display from Pascal, not as many numbers as Rodon, but equally efficient. What a pairing?
It's starting to look ok Sidney yes, but Leicester is the only true test up to now, and it went well, we need much more evidence against good sides to gauge how good they are yet, and atm it's a case of 'you can only beat what's put in front of you' and they're doing ok.
If Rodon was actually available to play v Soton and not carrying a knock, then it's DF's biggest fck up to date and a feckin hard lesson he learned in a very feckin costly way, coz it was a Blitzkrieg through the middle which backfired, if i remember correctly he was either keeping faith in his previous team or teaching Rodon a lesson for getting his 2nd yellow and sending off.
But yeah, in answer to your question, these two are young and hopefully forming an understanding of each other, i am a bit wary of a Ben White situation though, but there's nowt we can do about that coz we want the best from him anyway, like Bert, DF should know what he's worth if push comes to shove, I think we bid about £27m for White and Bert had done a lot of decent work on him and i feel desperately wanted him, but £56m ? That was surely out of our reach, shame dat.
It'll all come down to money Sidney me old boy, and how much DF likes/wants him.
Still being proven right years on.
Radz is a businessman - and knows nowt about football.
Orta is a fraud - and knows nowt about footballers.
Bert - A footballing mastermind that they both got lucky with, end of.
Timely member of a clique.
