...there would be a bit more enthusiasm about his performance on Saturday. I thought he looked really good, albeit it was Birmingham...the same Birmingham mind, that Riise looked average [again] against for the first 65 minutes.

 

 

He's class through and through. Positive, comftable on the ball, stanima, pace, what more does a fullback need?

 

He's never looked out of place playing with players like Aguero and Zarate in the Argie youth teams, so he won't look out of place playing with Pennant and Riise

He's already ten times the player Riise is, but that's not saying much. He's a good tidy player at the moment but will get a lot better. Wouldn't want him playing in a meaningful game at the moment as I think he's a bit lightweight, but I think he'll soon be a consistant squad member.

I thought he looked good when he came on too.

 

Looks like he's bulked up from last season too.

 

 

One thing Riise does have is 'BULK'

 

Clichy, Evra et Cole don't seem to struggle despite being weedy things.

Clichy and Cole struggled against Kuyt in recent games. THat said fullbacks don't often come up against big physical wide players

To be fair they didn't attack at all in the last 25 minutes so we didnt get to see him defending

 

:D

 

Looked comfortable though

 

He did at Fulham last year tbh. Surprised he hasn't had a league cup game at least

Absolute garbage that is. Riise may have made a massive error the other night and generally been off form for a while but to state that an untried reserve team fullback is ten times the player an established first teamer who has won plenty, played in and done well in some massive games is, is ludicrous. I have seen Insua have some, at best, average games in reserve team football and he has proven absolutely nothing yet. He may well, and I hope he does, go on to be a good player for us but he has achieved nothing so far.

Still a better option than Riise at the moment for me.

 

Just goes to show how limited and exposed we are on the LHS now, but take nothing away from the lad. He's been excellent.

Never heard of hyperbole language then...

 

He may not be 'ten times better' but IMO he's a better player.

Is right

 

If Insua is such a massive, massive talent, why is it a year since his last appearance?

Because Rafa thinks Riise is a better player, at least until recently.

Exactly. Rafa is not a fool. If he felt Insua was good enough, he'd play him, regardless of age.

Riise bashing is getting beyond ridiculous now

 

I think it was unfortunate for Insua that Aurelio needed minutes around the time of our Carling cup matches this season.

 

Think thats right. I still think he should have played though, its odd that 1st team development could get held back for the best part of a year to give Aurelio an hour.

We could always try him on the Wing. But I think Silvas imminent arrival may stop that. Babel on the right?

 

Mind you Silva can play on both flanks and is likely to swap during the game IMO.
