Default Daley Blind Cb 2015/16

Very happy with him at the back for now.....

No idea where this leaves Rojo but he's solid.

Aware, strong, intelligent, fit...

Got over that knock from last season and is trusted by Gaal to walk into any position in the first team...regularly..

the difference is that he can actually pass the ball, he made one of the goals tonight.

Defo wank over him far to often on the d-low

Can see what a difference it makes having someone who can play from the back. Do worry about him against the top strikers.

Obviously his pace is an issue but despite all those concerns I love a passing midfielder playing at the back. He's a decent partner for Smalling too as he's usually available for the easy pass once Smalling has beasted some attacker.

He's wonderful. His passing from the back is a huge plus.

Neville did a piece on him last night too and he marshals the defence really well.

I worry about jones against top strikers I worried about vidic in his last year against top strikers.

I would rather have him back there starting and creating vs that mong jones throwing himself around

yep. he's done well, but he's not really been tested as yet. i still think he's too short to be a centre back. will reserve judgement until i've seen him against a top striker.

Only concern for me is his his pace if we're caught on the break, and his height defending crosses against a big target man. Neither have really been tested yet though.

Other than that, he's looked the business. Great to have a centre-back who is so assured in possession. Looks to have a good and growing understanding with Smalling.

Seems like a top pro, too; intelligent, a talker, can lead. Great player to have in the squad/starting XI.

I think Rojo will slip back into that position and fear Blind could end up a utility man.

However, over the course of a season and with our injury record,he will still get plenty of games thankfully. Can see him in midfield too - I wouldn't rule that out for now either.
