8 thoughts on “Fiorentina (2nd Leg) – match ratings

  1. Well what can you say, a tie we could and perhaps should have won over the 2 legs and yet same old…

    Lloris 6 – Didn't have much to do, one very good save 1 on 1.
    Chiriches 5 – Tried to get forward, still too sloppy.
    Vertonghen 5 – Ok apart from the silly mistake.
    Fazio 4 – Not as dominant as usual, poor mistake for first goal.
    Davies 5 – Endeavoured but crossing was poor.
    Lamela 4 – 1 decent shot and good through-ball but lost the ball a lot!
    Stambouli 5 – Mostly ok but guilty of overplaying in tight areas.
    Bentaleb 6.5 MotM – His rating as our MotM says it all about the team, best of a average/poor bunch.
    Chadli 5 – Got into a few crossing positions but ultimately disappointed.
    Eriksen 5 – No real influence.
    Soldado 3 – Apart from the obvious, did very little.

    Subs – Kane 5 – Tried to get things going but to no avail.
    Townsend 5 – See Kane.
    Walker N/A

  2. More or less as above, but would give Lamela and Stambouli a higher rating. A few decent runs and passes from them. The team must feel angered. An abject performance that could have been so different. We were on top first half but didn't show maturity second.

    Lamela did sweet fa for me, he isn't dynamic, he isn't creative, he doesn't score and he doesn't hold the ball up, so beyond a step over, run into 3 players then wave his hands about I fail to see how he had any form of good rating.
    Chriches, our midfield 2 in the first half + possible Erikson with the probing passes were the only positives, once they started pressing in the middle for the second half we fell to pieces once again. No width, Davies I felt was immensely poor and I actually missed Danny Rose as I think he would have been more effective of keeping Salah quiet.

    Any reason Lloris seemed to come off his line a lot less? a few times I expected him to come and sweep up and/or close the angles but he didn't like normal.

  5. Lloris 6 – for once unable to produce the worldies needed to prevent their goals

    Chiriiches 5 – impressive in between the brainfarts
    Fazio 4 – when you're that short of pace suicide passes are too expensive a luxury
    Verts 6 – was looking masterful until his disastrous moment of hesitation for their second
    Davies 3 – can only think lack of game-time has completely done for him

    Bentaleb 6 – our best outfield payer until shortly before he was subbed
    Stambouli 6 – excellent first half, faded second

    Lamela 5 – competed well enough as always but remains far too easy to dispossess
    Eriksen 6 – medium-to-long range radar has completely deserted him of late
    Chadli 5 – offered very little

    Soldadudo 2 – words fail me

    Subs

    Townsend 5 – stepovers galore but too little end product
    Kane 6 – less effective as a #10, needed to play up top
    Walker 6

    Poch 6 – was right to play Eriksen because without him we lack creativity but should have replaced Soldado with Kane up top following the Spaniard's grotesque gaffe

    lamela 5 he was due a poor game

    WTF??!! A player is due to a poor game when he has had a string of outstanding contributions.

    And I was taken to task in another thread for saying that some posters were Lamela apologists….

  7. Lloris 6 – I'm really feeling sorry for Hugo . His quality deserves some clean sheets.

    Chiriiches 4 –
    Fazio 4 –
    Verts 5 –
    Davies 4 –
    All four defenders were not to bad with their offside trap but they were all poor in their passing. There were no accuracy to the simplest of square passes to each other and all to often, the receiver was unable to receive the ball to feet or in his stride. The crossing from the full-backs was of a poor standard too.

    Bentaleb 6 – our stand out outfield player with a 6/10, says it all :(
    Stambouli 5 – at times dwelt on the ball much to much when the quick pass was the right thing to do .

    Lamela 5 – denied an assist but that apart had a nothing game.
    Eriksen 5 – quiet game
    Chadli 5 – same as Eriksen and Lamela.

    Soldadudo 2 – I think he's on the ganja.

    Subs

    Townsend 4 – couldn't improve things
    Kane 5 – No point in keeping a player bereft of confidence upfront when you have Harry Kane .
    Walker 4 – same as Townsend .

    Poch – Needs to show the boys a DVD of the Monaco game at the Emirates.
