I doub't we'll ever find another attacking full back as creative as Baines in his peak

but surely we can find one that is better defensively. Just someone that stops crosses would be awesome.
Apart from his free kicks, another thing that plattenhardt stands out for is his aerial duals. He wins 60% of them, no other full back in the Bundesliga comes close.
of them play in sides that press from the front like we supposedly want to. their teams sit off as much as we do
neither of them are used to having a lot of responsibility on the ball
both of them push up their creativity numbers through taking loads of dead balls
in short, neither of them come close to peak baines, plattenhardt almost certainly never will and max would have to take a proper jump very soon
They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.
