I have no idea what you are ranting about, its a team game and I pointed out that we had two players not up to it today and that made Allan's (and other players) job harder. My comparing Allan to Reid is a compliment in my opinion, both players styles are similar and I hold Reid in the highest esteem.
If you think Peter Reid was the reason that team was successful, you truly are deluded. He was one of eleven players on the pitch and all of them know that they depended on each other, all brought their unique attributes and worked as a unit.
As for booing Reidy and Paul Power ...... where did that come from ?
Time for bed.
"A lot of what he does depends on those around him doing their job"
Not much about Everton rattles me these days but did you ever watch him play at his peak for us? He wasn't only the engine room but the brains and heart of 84 & 85 side. Despite all that tallent in that team, nothing would have been achived without him.
The same could be said about the Reds without Souness. They were similar players.
Yes, he was surrounded by fantastic players but you're f###ing having a laugh suggesting that for one second, anything in his game depended on those around him.
I can only think that kind of statement comes from the kind of fan who booed (the injury ravaged player he had become) him before he left Everton. Even City fans would have more reverence to his abilities.
Don't get me started on Paul Power.
I see him as Peter Reid type player, he does the dirty work and while he may not have pace .... he gets round the pitch. A lot of what he does depends on those around him doing their job and today we had a few players well off the pace and hiding.
When Allan gets the ball, he needs players on their toes and looking for the ball ....... Gray is always like this, whereas Iwobi is the exact opposite and that limits Allan's options. The same could be said of Rondon as he has no pace and playing a pass in behind the the opposition back line is pointless.
Today Allan was facing a team that all wanted the ball and all were up for it, it was not an even match. Put in DCL and Richarlison instead of our passengers and then you get a different result. I have no doubt that Allan is PL standard and reckon he would be a huge success at Utd as they lack a terrier like him to do all the fetch and carrying for Pogba and Co.
