i.e. when he gets the ball, looks up, and can't see an option, he looks ponderous and slow.
when the ball is moving around quickly I think it suits him better. for Arsenal he looked good as part of a dynamic attacking unit.
I don't think he's the type of player you stick out on the wing, play a slow ball to his feet, and expect him to conjure something out of nothing.
he's a bit like Pickford in the sense that Pickford is good at reaction and instant stuff but if he's trying to weigh up a decision he's poor
I think Iwobi is better when he's playing on instinct and technical ability, versus having to make something happen
He obviously is less able to find creative options than Sigurdsson and James, in fact, I donít find hin to be more creative in terms of passing than ANY of our offensive players. He is one of the better dribblers though, but unfortunately with little end product. That leaves me to think that he is neither a particularly quick thinker nor suited to be a playmaker.
With that being said, he is not the worst option to have as a squad player.
it suggests that perhaps his lack of end-product isn't necessarily him but the lack of movement around him from the team.
given how much that report praises his quick thinking (as did wenger, and i vaguely recall carlo's said similar a few times) i wonder if it only looks like he's making poor decisions because of the lack of movement elsewhere in the team. after all, no movement means he's got nothing to work with. perhaps what he needs is decent movement around him to make the best use of his talents? we all know our movement is crap most of the time - ball to feet rather than into space, and passing backwards or sideways most of the time. we certainly didn't do much in the first half last night, so he'd have nothing to work with, and to our eyes he would have looked like he was giving us nothing...
