Very impressed with him last night. He actually attacked far more frequently than I have seen him do for Marseilles. His style of defensive play will adhere him quickly as he is very tenacious and refuses to give up if he loses out on the first tackle. A very, very good debut.

Very impressed from what I saw having watched the replay earlier. Was energetic and pacey. Bombed up & down the right flank all night long. Very promising going forward & defensively solid too. What I really like about Azpi is his crossing. Delivered numerous good crosses into the box & certainly does it better & quicker than Ivan! Ivanovic sometimes takes ages to put in the cross whereas Azpilicueta does it way quicker & allows someone a better chance to attack it.

And strangely enough & for whatever reason, I like how Cahill & Azpi covered each other towards the end when Nouble had a free run on the left. Azpi was caught slightly out of position when the ball was played into the space behind him to Nouble. Rather than trying to chase him down, Cahill went across to cover for Azpi while the latter went to CB to cover for Cahill. Good bit of defensive play that!

Did well, but that was a 2nd division team with lots of rotations in, don't overrate him yet :D

He certainly looks really promising and it was nice to see our full back actually cross the ball in with pure technique and accuracy after seasons and seasons of watching Bosingwa's bird shots and Ivanovic's rockets :D

Picture of him without that rape smile. Not sure what's better :D

Here he looks like he's in the middle of a rape
