He’s a decent player. Only issue with his game is he isn’t playing enough to get any real consistency going, when he gets a string of games he is often one of our key players. I would love to see a 4-3-3 in the absence of Madders with him Youri and Wilf in the Centre of the park. I think we could cause some serious damage in a 4-3-3 with a decent wide right player with some consistency.

Did absolutely fvck all yesterday I’m sorry.

 

Gladly reuse all the invisible man jokes that people used to put on Kingy for this guy. Walked off the field blowing as well, after being completely invisible.

 

One of the performances that truly fvcked me off yesterday.

You evidently weren't watching very carefully - I'm sorry.

Please enlighten me HPF... because clearly he didn’t do enough to impact the game otherwise we’d have won...

I'm sorry, that's an entirely illogical argument.

Why lol the intention of the game is to win, no? I’m looking for positive contributions he made to the game... 

 

High press was most effectively executed by Perez with the most interceptions. His pass completion was 70% and he didn’t put in a successful cross all game. He then went off at 65 blowing out his arse.

 

Genuinely, what did he contribute?

He wasn't blowing, and you said we didn't win, ergo Praet's fault. That alone makes him entirely responsible for the non-win - that is illogical in a team game.

Not one successful cross? What about the one iheanacho blundered over the bar?

Ok but I’m asking for positive contributions to the game also. I’ve given you stats and they’re backing up the observation that he was invisible as well. It’s clear he’s got something but it’s all a bit confused and not working in a rotated system like yesterday. 
 

I mean what even is his position? 6? 8? 10? 11?

In his defence, he rarely plays in/with our strongest XI (or 10) and is often put in a variety of positions. He is clearly a very capable player, but his impact on games isn't really enough. He goes missing which isn't really what you want in a CM, whatever the game's context.

Interesting because I was thinking the same with my post above

Sorry, which stats did you give me? That he went off after 65 and we didn't win? That's not a very complete set of stats, is it?

He had a decent game especially that magnificent long pass to Nacho and superb cross also to Nacho. Don’t get the stick he gets on here, our first half we played great and should have been 2-0 up. If we were then all of a sudden with the exact same performance people would be raving about him on here!

I understand the want to emotionally back something but being down right ignorant doing it is weird. Enjoy your day pal.

He was the one doing all the wing work on the right side first half why perez just watched :rolleyes:

I think he is a tidy player, but I don't think we will see the best of him here. If an opportunity arose to do it for net zero cost, I'd be inclined to move him on for a decent offer to add some extra mobility/physicality into midfield 

 

Agree with the earlier assessment that he'd fit best in a Liverpool style 4-3-3 where the midfielders are hard working with decent technical ability, but made to look better by very adventurous full backs, and forwards who create loads of space with their movement. He has the game awareness and technical ability to work well in a system like that.

I like Praet - but Maddison offers so much more in terms of creativity and positivity. He is frustrating, but he is always trying to influence the game, where Dennis can cut a peripheral figure.

 

Being realistic, Maddison looks to me like a player who can help us kick-on to the next level and Praet is more of a squad player that wouldn’t really be an attractive proposition to the larger clubs.
