Could put Palacios in that bracket too (albeit some pretty significant off-field excuses there).I have a theory that DM's usually have limited window where they seem to peak & then injuries take over. That position seems to take a toll on players. Wanyama & sandro for us. Peaked then very quickly injuries took over. I was actually saying about a year ago that kante seems to have avoided that. But fast forward, he keeps getting injuries & doesn't look quite as good as he did the previous few years. Rather than just peak & regress like other positions. It seems to be peak then injuries take there toll.
Yeah that was it. Don't think he was the same afterwards.Did he do his cruciate trying to take out Haaland vs City?
Came back and the next time they faced each other Keane cut him in half with 5 minutes to go. Got a red and a ban.
Wrote about it in his book and got another ban for saying it was premeditated.
Good shout. It probably helps he plays in the less physical la liga. Maybe makele too?busquets?
Yeah another good example. Big shame with him as he was a likable guy.Could put Palacios in that bracket too (albeit some pretty significant off-field excuses there).
The Cheese Room Podcast had a great interview with Sandro a week or so ago, mostly concerning his time at Spurs (which he loved and still misses) and an honest account of how he left the Club and his acknowledgement that it was a big mistake. Worth listening to just for his hilarious Redknapp impersonations!
