    The whole thing is on Youtube:
  2. On misfiring Fernando Torres, Benitez added: ‘If the striker is not scoring, the rest of the team have to create more chances for him. My idea isn’t just to improve Fernando, but the whole team. I have to agree. Not necessarily about creating chances for Torres but that we need to create more chances. I feel that with the players we have we should be creating a lot more open chances during games and if he can somehow improve that, our forwards, not just Torres, will benefit.

    How can anyone honestly say that because RDM dropped Torres he got sacked? Say it out loud and I hope you realize how pathetic you sound. RDM was never Romans choice and if anything, from his perspective, this decision came 6 months too late.

    Lets leave all sentiment at the door please. There is no room for it in football. RDM never was Romans guy, never has been, never will be. It was easier to keep him last year than to look for a new manager when we ditched AVB. The fact that we won the CL meant RDM was un-sackable. It would have been the same with Avram in 08. I also don't buy all this "lose a couple of games and get sacked" none-sense. We have had lots of stop gaps polluting the numbers and in my opinion bar Jose and possibly Carlo, all where justified. Robbie's a top geezer and I wish him all the best.
  5. If I have one criticism about his general play it is that he tries to do too much sometimes. When his dribbles come off they look great (won a pen) and he had a nice one against Reading. But trying them too much (and failing) can get frustrating and I think he should play the simple pass more often. Overall I like what I have seen though and to be honest its no real surprise as I always believed we wouldn't see the best of Torres until Drogba left. 3 in 4 games is a good start to the season and I hope he keeps it up.

    I don't know where the confusion comes from. Winning a penalty creates a clear goal scoring opportunity as much as a through ball that sets a player free one-on-one with the goalkeeper. If the result is a goal, the player responsible for creating that goal scoring opportunity will be credited with an assist. Players can't get both a goal and assist because the two are mutually exclusive. You either create a goal or score a goal not both. In open play this is pretty easy to distinguish. In events where a pen is won and scored by the same player a goal is credited and the assist wiped/ignored as goals take precedence of assists. Question: If a player robs an opponent of the ball and scores a solo goal, should he be given a goal and assist? (for creating and scoring the goal)

    A loose paraphrase of what I imagine the proper definition of an assist is would be something like: "being directly responsible for creating an opportunity that leads to a goal being scored". Winning a penalty would be classed under that.

    az·pi·li·cu·e·ta Its not that difficult unless his first name is the issue...
  9. César Azpilicueta Looks legit.

    Wow, erm.. right. I didn't think an off the cuff comment like my initial one would spark an in-depth analytical discussion about football theory but I have no problem with that. Look, I see your saying but my point was that based on what I have seen last season I stand by my assessment that should we sell Malouda and get Moses that it would be a like for like replacement based on the facts that a) we play 4-2-3-1 and b) Malouda wouldn't play as one of the 2 midfielders. Forgive me if I sound ignorant but if he wouldn't play as one of the 2 midfielders that means he would occupy one of the 3 attacking roles behind the striker. I would rather Moses play there than Malouda.
  11. Victor Moses (On Loan: 2013-2014)

    Considering the fact that we have played 4-2-3-1 in every single game since RDM took I think it's fair to say that it will be the case next season so if we where to sign Moses I would guesstimate that he would play as part of the 3 behind the striker. I have yet to see Malouda be deployed as a midfielder for RDM as I have only seem him be part of that creative 3. Therefore, in my eyes it becomes a like for like replacement regardless of how you want to define Malouda.
  12. Victor Moses (On Loan: 2013-2014)

    True but they would occupy the same position in the squad given our 4-2-3-1 formation. Malouda doesn't play in either of the controlling roles thus playing on either the left wing or, as he has done on a couple of occasions last season, in the #10 role. That's what I would imagine Moses' role would be as I doubt he would play the striker role.
  13. Victor Moses (On Loan: 2013-2014)

    If we'd got Victor Moses and got rid of Malouda it would make me happier than signing either Modric or Hulk.

    Just talking to my friends and saying that he would go to City. So glad I was wrong. If we get Hulk too, we will cream the league next year.
