Slightly off topic but still about Mitchell, he seems to be caught playing very narrow allowing the opp winger acres of space. It could be a deliberate coaching tactic. Has anyone noticed this?

 


Bring back Brolin

Ward is useless going forward and not left footed. Would much rather see Schlupp at left back.

take it you didnt see ward play left back last time he did , he was alot better than you are willing to give credit for , blinkers comes to mind

Ward possesses that defensive mindset and nous and the positional awareness so even though left-back is not his favoured position he uses that experience to good effect.

Ward perhaps written off by many has perhaps surprised quite a few supporters with his performances in the PL in the twilight of his career.

correct i was right footed played left back most times its easier to read the other players also i could kick with both , would be worth a fortune today

I've noticed this in the U21/18 sides too, although we seem to get away with it.

The defender seems to get sucked in leaving the winger acres of room.

Did it under Roy. Both sides. Drives me crazy. Canít man mark the winger, but at least be in touch.

I suspect it is by design, a tactical decision to pack the middle of the defence and content to concede the flanks.

Ward has 9 assists in 278 games for Palace so I'll stand by my 'He's useless going forward' opinion.

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

It is never a good option to play a right footed player at left back. Are we seriously looking to sign a 3rd right back with no cover at all on the left ?

Exactly this. Less danger out wide.

Biggest danger is allowing space between the full back and CB. So full backs are coached to tuck in until they need to go wide.

If this referring to Cityís first goal Mitchell was already carrying the knock so didnít close down as quickly as he had been the whole game beforehand.
