I can’t comment on the other part but Gnabry made that goal. He finds the space in between the lines, he eliminates the defender (with some luck), and then he makes the perfectly weighted through ball to put Ox in on the keeper. Ox makes a very pretty finish but if he had put it under the keeper’s legs it would’ve had the same effect, except no one would be talking about it.
It’s been so long since he’s actually played I almost forget.
But in 13-14 he definitely looked to me like he had the characteristics to be an ideal winger in a combination style. Can beat a man, but also has the quality to combine, move in the mediapunta zones, and assist (as shown the other day or when he set up Santi at the NLD).
Well said @Burgundy. This is what we were saying before the West Brom loan. Idiotic loan that still bothers me. Should’ve been going abroad to Germany, France, or Spain all along. For loads of reasons including all the ones you mentioned.
