what you think
Because when he plays we attack as if we have 10 men on the field. At best. Nedved is very close to worthless when we are in possession, and he does not win a lot of battles on the defensive side of things either due to not just deteriorating pace, but plain absence of it.more harm than good? in what sense????
i'll admit neddy's in decline, offensively. but the reason why he starts so frequently, besides our lack of options, is because of his copertura ability---meaning in layman's terms----he's not hurting us defensively.
so please, i'd like someone to elaborate on this more harm than good notion because i frankly don't see it, defensively speaking of course.
well said. about giovinco, you've got to understand that with molinaro behind the LW, it's imperative that a defensive responsible player plays ahead of him. this is why you see nedved. i agree he's not the most competent at the 1 v 1 battles because tactically it shouldn't even get to that. we all know futbol is all about geometry-playing the angles. if you watch nedved, positionally, he's always there to break up the angles and force low percentage passes. that's playing smart and you and i both know not everyone can play that. problem is if you're late on an assignment or don't have the angles covered, what happens is your forced into a 1 v 1 situation which clearly doesn't favour nedved. certainly when that happens he looks bad. most of the times though when we don't notice it, it's because he did it well and THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. he's a smart player and a lifesaver to molinaro.Because when he plays we attack as if we have 10 men on the field.

As said in previous match threads, with Nedved there's always this chance of something important happening, because he knows what to do. Its just that he hasn't pulled anything off for a long, long time. It looks like we're playing in 10, because he never does anything in offense anymore, and considering that he plays one of the few positions we really must expect offense from, that HURTS.
If we cannot play Giovinco there (its stupid to say we can't given Nedved giving us nothing and Gio time and again proving creative and dangerous when played, but for arguments sake), I would also much rather play DeCeglie there, because he offers more both ways compared to Nedved. His pace and hustle has much more impact, and he plain makes plays. Nedved is frustration defined.
