He was up against Ronaldo. This was the first pre season game for both sides and we did really wellThey're two weeks behind us in their pre season and it showed the first half. A chance to really stand out but he didn't really at all. Like Georgiou on the other side, doesn't look up to the level we need.
Of course they're two weeks behind us in preparation because Serie A starts two weeks later! Our resident Juve fan fogueres will tell you this and Sarri said as much. Or does your "source" inside the club no better?Blimey agendas much .... Juve are not two weeks behind us don't believe troll posts .... our training only began on the 8th July and most only returned on the 15th July ... so we haven't even done 2 weeks, the majority not even a week,so how can we be two weeks ahead?
Second playing in Asia is a big deal for Juve and Ronaldo, it was very noticeable that they started with him and kept him on until he scored, he pushed hard on KWP and KWP stood up to the task real well ...
KWP is just 22 he's played just 9 EPL games .... why the massive hurry to right him off?
Hahahahahahahaha ... that's funny .... and Sarri was surprise, surprise making an excuse ...
Because we have the massive hurry to win something.KWP is just 22 he's played just 9 EPL games .... why the massive hurry to right him off?
Tottenham started on July 8th, Juventus on July 10th. The difference is precisely that you are "calibrated" on a different start date for the championship. Anyway, it was a fun game in which the Asian fans had to have fun: you play there for that ...Of course they're two weeks behind us in preparation because Serie A starts two weeks later!

Just 22? He's several years behind the curve of progress you'd have expected him to make. It's very easy to latch on to every young player and say they'll make it but, after having seen all his games for us, I don't think he will and it's time to move him on, in my opinion.
And as for standing up to Ronaldo, he shoulder barged KWP off the pitch once and shoulder barged him to the ground dismissively another time. He made him look weak. I don't think he could have done that to a player like Parrott, and if he had I think Parrott would have had some verbals with him and not just sit there looking sorry for himself, because he's got little something about him, an edge, that KWP lacks.
The nightmare scenario is us not making a signing, having to play KWP at City away and him getting brutalised, because I don't think he'd be up to it.
Rose was absolute train wreck during AWB/Poch season 1, him and naughton on the flanks was a guaranteed 4 goals against.Rose spent a season with Sunderland at 22 and said he wanted to stay there.
Then got dogs abuse when he signed a new contract. And was basically called useless.
People have very short memories.
KWP physically can still fill out and develop physically. I think his best days are ahead of him personally.
