Aye, it is... people had similar opinions of both Vidic and Evra after their first couple months... but fuck me, he's got to improve...

Thing is what's strange is ....
Back then there were lots of unknown players, not like now with the way social media is... there's also websites that analyse every player

Full time devils (howson) done a video on him before we bought him- we had been linked to him for a year and he watched loads of his videos and his stats and analysed him - he said he was shit defensively , like a liability, but decent on the ball...
So it wasn't a surprise to him or us that he's shit defensively - so why couldn't our scouts have seen that?!

Was he brought in for playing 352?
Why did we not keep trying that formation? Coz no decent LB?

I remember being at Wembley in 97' (I think) for the charity shield against Arsenal. We'd just bought a Dutch guy we'd never heard of called Jaap Stam. He was making his debut. Nicolas Anelka ripped him a new arsehole all game. It was painful.

Needless to say, he didn't do it again.

Not exactly the same thing Harry, did we already have quality young defenders coming through back then, I've no outstanding recollection but things have moved on and Fosu Mensah and Tuanzabe for me should easily be in a first team squad.

He might come really good but the only decent touches I saw him have last night were near in midfield like hitting a decent pass to Rashford to flick it on for Lingard.

I think people not having a full go at him but questioning whether for now he is a young Swedish Blind is fair enough? Anyway Zlatan told us to sign him so let him fix the wee fucker!
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Right now Fosu and Tuanzebe are much better than Lindelof. At worst they're consistent and do their job, at best they actually contribute more with attacking runs, crosses, a threat. They should start ahead of that useless twat.

If he doesn't settle this season then he looks like a write off. But will Jose actually play Tuanzebe or Fosu or will he go out and spend another 30/40m on another defender?

Jose on Lindelof after Watford:
“I think Richarlison is a very good player and a difficult player to play against but Victor is very fast and he’s adapted to play centrally but also to go to the sides because he’s got the agility that many of the central defenders don’t have. I think it was another very positive performance by Victor.”

Aye tbf he's had a couple of quiet games where he's not fucked up and caused any problems, just done his job. So that's promising. But we need a lot more than that. He needs to offer something Jones, Rojo and Smalling don't so we can sure up the defence.

Vidic or Evra didn't hit the ground running, not forgetting Pallister.

Not fucking up is something that Jones, Smalling and Rojo can't offer.
Lindelof has looked good against 2 shit teams albeit an improvement over him being shit against shit teams.
But he's looked "really" good in the last 2 games, like a seasoned defender who knows exactly where to be.
