Thats the way hes been told to ffs. 

Hes there for ball retention, cut inside and lay off midfielders.

Hes doing what Pep tells him to and it worked a treat last season with silva and kdb on the inside. 

It took Pep a year to mould him in to that position from the free role he played at Villa.

Peps tweeking it this season with Doku and a more direct way. He tweeks it every season.

Really baffles me how people who are meant to know the game cant see this.

 

He's not at it though this season, which is a shame. Seems to have gone backwards for whatever reason.

Some of city's players manage a few years at the very top of their game, and so far, Grealish hasn't.

Maybe he is one of those players who needs to play more frequently, which is a catch 22 situation for him.

There really is something going on in Rashford's head. I was never really convinced about him then, last season, he really got it together & I had to eat my words. This season however he's gone backwards and some.

Definitely doesn't want to be there. Whether it's the club, his colleagues, fitness or something home based he's robbing his considerable living right now.

Aye. Not hungry enough.

As you were. 🤣

Eastleigh had decided to settle for a draw, and were just sitting back. Give enough initiative to the opposition and get punished.

As soon as the equaliser goes in, they're on the front foot again!

Hes been injured for a large part of it then ill for 2 games last week. If that's not at it then fair enough.

I do fear for his place with Doku and Peps more direct style mind. Id love to see him on the right getting past his full back.

Won't help for sure, but he seems a bit predictable. Just won't go on the outside, which is why we've both said try him on the right. 

Still, that's for Pep to sort.

As for the Euros, I hope he is back and flowing as he can be destructive to any defence. 

Would be concerned though if both him and Rashford aren't at it by then, as they can be so effective on their day.
