He and Gomes generally run a long way, however they treat it like a cross country jog
trotting along just behind play so they may as well stand ####ing still such is the impact they have on the opposition. Both an example of how misleading a stat ‘distance covered’ is in the context of a football match.
who would walk closer to defenders to ensure he wasn't passed to whilst pointing to someone else for the ball to go to them, rather than moving into a position to receive the ball.
Also the same person who would receive the ball and 8/10 just give it straight back to the person who passed it to him.
Absolute shit-house off the ball.
Completely disagree on the no covering argument. Sigurdsson regularly ran his bollocks off. His issue, and therefore ours, was that he was slow and always slightly behind the play. No shortage of effort in attempting to cover though.
no movement, vision, covering, through balls, dribbling, latent threat, pace and so on.
If he didn't bang one in out of the blue we might as well have been playing with 10 men.
