The Barca game really highlighted the problem we have at LB. Hopefully Shaw is able to return, and return playing the type of football we have seen only in flashes, otherwise the left side will be where we will be attacked all season long. Blind had a terrible 1st half, he seemed unable to complete a pass to a teammate, his crosses where pathetic and his tracking back and overall defending was almost none existent. Darmian's defending was better in the 2nd half but that was because that was all he was doing, there was no attacking option from the LB position in the 2nd half. I was hoping that we would have gotten a chance to see what Mitchell had to offer, because we already know what Blind and Darmian bring to the position.
I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.
