    I loved double maths! Probably explains a lot.

    Great point about Rose though. He just looks, well, lost as a defender these days. Remember when he and Kyle Walker were arguably the best English FBs?

    I mentioned how bad Rose was in the game and was told I was spacegoating ...

    Hope this is the start of a lot more game time for him.

    Likely still raw and inexperienced as he was the last time he got regular minutes, but I think he has the potential to be really good. It was just Red Star, but he did as well as can be expected really.

    Looking back at that watching everyone but Rose bust a gut to try to stop the attack and his complete lack of interest whilst the play is evolving around him is awful.

    Agreed. It makes me pine for the days of Pyo/BAE or even Treacle/Ziegler or even Johnnie Jackson...

    I know many will not agree but IMO Rose has been stealing a living for a couple of seasons now.

    This is my concern. But hope he cuts it.

    He's been poor this season and looks past it, but was fine last season and along with Winks was the only one to come out with credit in the CL final

    I honestly and truly believe that deploying this young man as a defensive midfielder would be the making of him

    Well I don't think JM would agree with you. If you watch his post match interview about what he learned about the fringe players, his preamble to talking about Foyth was "I give you a positive example...."

    Yup, sounds like Mourinho might upgrade him to the first team squad

    Thought he was one of our best players last night.

    The Athletic reporting that he wants out if he doesn't get more game time.

    To put it briefly I understand him and hope he gets more game time.

    The Athletic seems pretty well connected at the club and with some of the players. Probably worth taking seriously

    I was wondering what Mourinho was up to last night after praising him after he nearly gave away two penalties last night.
    But it all makes sense now if Mourinho knows he wants out and the club want to keep him.

    he has to up his concentration it our area for sure.
    but his overall game is strong!
    Jose will sort him out or ship him out

    So your take is that he played poorly, but Mourinho singled him out for public praise to try to keep him happy and that Mourinho secretly agrees with your evaluation?

    I disagree completely. I guess time will tell. Though certainly a big challenge ahead of him to become a regular starter at centre back.

    Thing with Foyth is there is a good opportunity for him +Sanchez to be our CB pairing for a decade, if he is willing to let us wind down from our Toby/Jan dependency and he takes his chances and improves on his game.

    I'm not sure he will be a starter at a bigger club, so he needs to be careful on who is advising him.
