Ben Chilwell

Recommended Posts

If you're playing as fullback your main job is defending so I would never criticise his attacking play. In the wing back role you have got to make positive moves forward either a forward pass or trying to beat your man - all he did tonight was stop and pass back or lose it every time. Very poor, but still has plenty of time to improve.

His fullback ability wasn’t great on their goal

All you need to do is look how forward Ricardo was on the right and how far back Chilwell was on the left.

 

When Ricardo collects the ball he is always just outside the 18 yard box, he shows willingness to get forward.

 

When Chilwell collects the ball he's always about 30 yards from goal, hardly ever shows willingness to make forward runs and tends to pass sideways or backwards.

 

Chilwell is a negative thinker, if we cashed in and sold him I wouldn't be particularly bothered.

Madness that he was not subbed for Barnes who would at least have asked some questions whilst sitting on the left touchline, or he could have gone back into defence and have taken Fuchs off. We were crying out for someone to take their man on.

He was not playing as a full back, we were supposed to have rampaging wing backs, well i presume that was the plan.

Chilwell needs to break from deep and run on to balls. 

That's when he upsets other sides rhythm. 

Getting the ball from a standing position is not his strength. 

 

Agree..his main asset is his pace on the ball and running at defences on the break.....playing against a side that sits back negates this..

his main weakness is his unwillingness to use his right foot ..the goal conceded tonight he should have been trying to clear that with his right foot instead of the outside of his left

How anyone can justify his performances is beyond me,

he is simply crap,I’ve said for ages he’s overrated and the fact that I used to get slated for this,yet there’s now 37 pages with the majority saying the same justifies my opinion of him,

he is the week link in our squad and I would personally drive him to another team and not even charge him diesel

A lacklustre performance tonight from him, he was constantly looking behind him first before anywhere else and passing back at every chance we had to push forward.

Piper said it all after the game. He’s playing far too safe for a top level player

Says a lot about the england team when chilwell is 1st choice left back and Ricardo is about 3rd choice right back for Portugal! Ricardo is a much better defensively and going forward, he needs a new deal! he's everything you want and need from that position, chilwell isn't!

 

Forgetting any attacking play, the goal we conceded tonight he gets back to cover, gets goal side, has a couple of looks where he is in case the cross comes in and when it does hes allowed him to get the touch. It's a good ball in but it should be dealt with and he has time and space to do it, garbage!

Well we confirmed what we already knew.... Chilly is no wing back, but is a decent left back

Vile tonight again. The poor bloke was violated in consecutive games and he is full of self doubt.

 

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him make a challenge, the least aggressive defender I’ve seen in a long time.

Not being too harsh as wing back is not his normal position but he’s constantly at Barnes for not making runs then does exactly the same himself all night. Has no forward intent whatsoever. And his defending has always been suspect

Out of position and exposed. One footed which led to lack of offensive prowess. Far better as a fullback. I would have subbed Fuchs for Barnes and gone to a back four tonight second half. 

May need a one game on bench/rest this weekend.

at the 0:1 goal he has slept again and stood completely wrong to the Villa player and to the ball...

...and something like this is a national player, I will never understand

Bang on the sub we needed was Barnes for Chilwell all night long.Nothing happening on the left and he only has a left foot.

Justin may b e a better option

Was wretched tonight…. The amount  of times he’s 1 v 1 and just dipped it back was shocking…. If you’re playing wingback, you’ve got to try and take your man on at some point…. He completely bottled it

 

Needs to buck up…

I take some of this lack of harshness back. Having seen a replay of the goal that was shocking defending (not untypical)
