Maddison

Recommended Posts

Has taken his performance to the next level this season. Was impressive last but the progress he has made this season has been brilliant. I love how he can just dictate games now, fantastic player.

His disgusting acne seems to have cleared up now too.

 

What technique for the goal anyway, swept through the ball while more or less stood ontop of it

I bet you have a face like a swamp.

He should not just get in the england 11, he should be one of the first names to be in the 11, I could argue he should be the first with what he provides. Imagine him, instead of Henderson, providing for sterling, sancho and kane... Southgate is a mug if he continues to not play him.
 

This guy is world class without question, just sublime in the final third, every ball he plays is positive and he nails it.

He seems to have more bite to his game this season. Thought he was a bit of a show pony at times last year but has shown he can get stuck in and tackle back when needed. I am sure that this is something that Rodgers and the coaching team have drilled into him and it has made him an all round better player

Huge fan of how he's bought into Brendan's style of football off the ball as well. Works his bollocks off and he loves putting a shift in for the team. He cannot be ignored for England any more, he's got everything

Thought he came across as a really grounded young man in his interview post match on sky. Confident but not cocky, well spoken and quite eloquent in his answers. Really gave the impression that he is enjoying being part of what is happening at the club.

Do you actually rate any of our players?

There is no pleasing some people. We are second in league so obviously we have a load of crap players

He could go right to the top, If he keeps developing forgot fighting off the likes of Man U, spurs etc. He could be in the sights of the likes of Barc and R Madrid.

 

He's 22 far from his prime!

Never mind a token few minutes to cap tie him  if he doesn’t get a start this international break he should be fuming!!!! Not sure what else he has to do. Has proven he’s not just a playmaker but can play in central midfield too after Southgate said that’s why he can’t work his way into the team. 
 

His work rate has improved ten fold this season and maybe a criticism last season was that he didn’t turn up and contribute against the big boys. Goals against Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham this season and assist vs Chelsea. 

 

Add to this he’s a genuine threat from set pieces and long range he surely can’t be ignored any longer 

 

For such a talented player his work rate is excellent. Under Puel he was a No10 but BR plays him alongside Tielemans as two No8's. He still plays as a false No10 for want of a better phrase but you see him running back and helping the team form it's shape when we don't have possession. Hard work and doing the ugly side of the game when it's probably not natural to him is what separates good players from great players. 

 

We have a beautiful midfield three who compliment each other perfectly.

Jamie Redknapp was right when he said that Madders is the number 10 who can play on the half turn whom England have been crying out for for a long, long time. I just hope that Southgate a) has the balls to pick him and b) has the wherewithal to let him play the way he does for us.

Southgate won’t pick him. He firmly has his favourites in the starting 11, no doubt we’ll see Ross Barkley starting ahead of Maddison and probably replaced by Delph in the last half hour or so. If he could get away with it, Southgate would still have Lingard in the squad.
 

Besides that niggle Maddison has come on leaps and bounds this season and is easily one of the best players in the League. Rodgers is getting a really good tune out of all the players at the minute and its a fantastic time to be a fan. I just hope it lasts.

It's refreshing to hear a footballer that can string a sentence together & not appear like a rabbit in the headlights the minute a microphone is held to their face.  I can't think of another footballer so comfortable in front of the camera.  Sure, it's bordering on arrogance, but he told us more in those 5 minutes than we could ever learn from a string of footballers dishing out nothing but football cliches.

Maddison showing his ability as a complete midfield player this season. Coming much deeper to get onto the ball and spreading the play, always available for a pass, working very well with Tielemans to instigate things going forwards, chipping in with 7 goals in all competitions already and showing a committed defensive work rate. Top stuff.

The problem with Maddison last season under Puel was that in his first season ever in the Premier League, he was our only point of creativity in that side. 

Playing the double DM formation with Ndidi and Mendy left it mostly up to James to be the only creator of chances for us. Which tbf for a young lad in his first season is a lot to have shoulder. You shackle Maddison or keep him out of the game and Leicester were left passing sideways between Ndidi and Mendy. 

We started to play better overall when we signed Tielemans as it gave us another top creative player to halve Maddison's burden as well as adding a 2nd creative force that can makes passes and split lines. They dovetail so well. And now we also have Praet waiting in the wings...

They asked torrierra to man mark him first part of the second half which probably led to the game becoming a bit more open as it took away their first half solidity with their rigid formation
