Maguire has zero protection for his midfield, no senior/fit left back and a team trying to play higher up the pitch against lower opposition when they can’t 

Maguire is a big part of that high line problem tho, nothing to do with him being a bad footballer he just doesn’t have the natural pace to play it. We couldn’t do it very well with him and got caught out time after time, Soyuncu comes in and there’s no problem. Little coincidence there

Let's not forget Man United have a piss-poor manager and when they get rid of him and get a proper gaffer in they and Maguire may start looking a whole lot better.

Correct hence we told most Man U fans the case. As Ealing says Man U employ the worst manager in the league and as soon as he’s off, Maguire will have a manager who make him look far better. 

 

In fact Mourinho would have been perfect fit

Helps that Brendan has got our midfield on point and in particular our midfield press. It’s our effective closing down on the opposition defenders and midfielders that allows us to play a high line. If we didn’t press properly, even soyuncu would get bypassed by through balls.

There's been half a dozen times or more this season our high line has caught us out, nature of the beast obviously, but more often than not cags has managed to get back to put pressure on/make a challenge on the player that has got through, Harry would be a good few metres off when cags manages to apply pressure.

Evans is slow but you never see him caught (or very rarely at least). Maguire’s reaction times are slow which is exacerbated by his lack of pace. Maguire is a top half standard centreback with some extreme strengths and extreme weaknesses; he’s not good enough to completely alter a system around to play to his strengths either. £80m lol!

Maguire has the reaction time of a three toed sloth and the turning circle of an oil tanker. He's a good centre half, because he's a unit who's reasonably good with his feet. Pull him out of position though and it's easy to play round him.

 

The trouble he has currently is, as already pointed out, Utd are playing too high which leaves him exposed, particularly as his midfield offer so little protection. 

 

He would look far better for us this year in our current setup but I would think we're all glad that we didn't get to witness it with the emergence of Soyuncu. Also because I genuinely believe he would slow us down.

I think Maguire will look snd play better in a better team. If we still had Maguire we would still be second in the table snd he would get plaudits (with Evans) on our excellent defence.

Fair point, but I can think of a number of times Soyuncu pace has got us out of trouble.

 

I think Soyuncu and Evans, covers more bases then Evans and Maguire

 

However I'd would have like to see them in a 3!

Fair play to them that's excellent PR lol

Southampton are often quite good on social media.

However I find them to be not the most helpful when it comes to the press.

Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Said that to my wife. She asked when I was going to fuch off so she could find out if it was true.
