John Stones used to get hammered for playing out from the back, he eventually found his balance on when to do it, when not to it's all a learning curve for Juan.'High risk low reward strategy' isnt that difficult a concept. It just means taking a big risk with not much of a payoff. Risking a fuckup in your own box with a silly dribble only to gain a very little advantage is a bad move. Thats not what a defender should be doing. If Kane does that in the opponent box and succeeds, then theres a chance of scoring a goal , thats a low risk high reward strategy. Thats common sense stuff not soccerball or any such nonsense where we try to insult an overseas football fan.
Sheep mentality. Davinson scares me everytime someone's closing him down, Foyth I feel calm. Big Dav will win the ball back and instantly give it back to the opposition by taking a swipe at it or needlessly booting it for a throw on occasions. Juan not only wins the ball back but tries to utilise that advantage by developing it into giving us the attacking onus.Match winner (with cleansheet) against Palace too.
How anyone can think Foyth is a liability and not Davinson Sanchez is beyond me. Again, must be an aesthetics thing.
No, I agree - both are excellent, have such high ceilings and will be our centre back pairing for years to come - but it seems Foyth gets labelled as this liability yet I never hear it of Sanchez who has just as much 'liability' in him as Foyth does.They're both good.

Both are young but if I had to go with one style or another I'd go with Foyth's.
He and Toby were excellent in a 2 man defence against Chelsea. They barely got a sniff.This is probably a bad year for Foyth to come through as our defence has been pretty poor all season and like I said earlier, he's the one getting all the blame while some others seem like they are never allowed to be blamed.
I think Foyth would do well in a 2 man CB with Jan or even Dav.
Gareth Bale didn't win any of his first 25 games in a Spurs shirt, Thierry Henry scored one goal in Arsenals opening 15 league games his debut season, Luka Modric was voted worse La Liga signing his first season in Spain, De Bruyne & Salah couldn't cut it at Chelsea and had to move abroad before finding their groove and how long did it take Harry to shake that one season wonder tag?Facts.
People see pundits bashing a young and promising footballer and clamour to it, so they must be right - I remember when we started Foyth against Chelsea where he pocketed Hazard for 90 minutes and ALL the pundits spoke about regarding Foyth were the two penalties he conceded against Wolves.
I'm happy with both of them. Foyth is one of the best players we have with the ball at his feet and Sanchez has the potential to be very very good with the right coaching, still think Sanchez is poor in the air as well as using his strength correctly. I don't think chopping and changing them helps them however.
