Well I've seen Marco play quite a few Eredivisie games and I can tell you right now you're being ridiculous if you want to judge his passing, which wasn't even very bad to begin with, on two meaningless pre season games. He's a good passer.

I didn't say he wasn't a good passer, I have no idea if he is. I just said that his passing in the two games was bad.

You can't be serious Choulo. He was Dutch talent of the year for crying out loud.

its ok have booked Choulo an appointment with Spec Savers

Looks good so far. Good passing range, tackles well and knows when to sit and when to push up. Hoping to see him get among the goals as well. 9M could turn out to be a sound investment.

Van Ginkel's passing has been terrible in both games. Fist he's very slow at it and often needs an extra touch or two before releasing the ball. Second, his technique is awful, meaning even when he does make the pass it is often either behind the player or difficult for him to control; meaning the receiver often has to take an extra touch which also slows down the play. Moreover, his vision is bad; he seems only to be able to make the 'obvious' pass and when a defender blocks that angle he looks unsure what to do and often goes back to defense. And finally, he seems to struggle with passes more than 15-20 meters away and often misplaces them.

Careful Choulo, you're starting to sound an awful lot like one of those Mikel-bashers you so despise!

:Goober:

It's still way too early and I'm not passing judgement, but I have not yet seen how Van Ginkel is good at everything else.

I'm going to move those posts because this is not his thread.

I would love to say something constructive, but have to say that first paragraph is just ridiculous. Either you need to rewatch both games, or you're very confused. Van Ginkel's been the midfielder who sits and has done his job perfectly fine. Nothing spectacular, but just very tidy with the odd glimpse. You said you're not passing judgement, but have already judged that his 'technique is awful' and his 'vision is bad'. I doubt you have anything against MVG, but it sure sounds like you do.....

Watched the full match just now but have to say after a long time our pivot loked really good , mvg-essien really impressed me both were very dominant physically and aerially and the passing was also quick and crisp .. but the momment both were subbed off defensively we became a little vulnerable....but still a pre season match not judging early....

Choulo did go a bit ott but I get what he's saying, especially regarding the 'obvious pass'. To be honest, the pivot options in Malaysia is littered with obvious passers, and it's really Josh that is only one with enough guile to see and want to make different kinds of passes.

I've been impressed with MVG's athleticism and defensive contribution, and while his passing hasn't looked particularly good it can and hopefully will improve. To be fair to MVG he has made some good passes into the feet of KDB/Hazard when they've found themselves in good space so he can see the pass and is able to make it. It's just about being more consistent and sharper.

The obvious pass becomes better than its supposed to be when its hit quickly before the defenders can react

This coming from a man who said oscar cant tackle. Completely predictable.

One more thread where choulo19 has embarrassed himself.

I absolutely love this kid. Yes, I know I'm basing it on two pre-season games, but he is so neat and tidy as a footballer. Composed defensively as well. Positionally very well disciplined. He definitely will be of great use for us. There's no doubt Mourinho is intending on playing him as a defensive midfielder as well, judging on the fact he has sat whilst Essien and Ramires have roamed. Not necessarily a bad thing, he has the temperament for it.

maybe he can develop into a van bommel type player.

To be fair, those 'bashers' waited 200 games before starting on Mikel in some cases.

Choulo has decided to bash Van Ginkel after just two pre-season matches. Personally I think the biggest problem he has with Van Ginkel is that he plays in the same position as Mikel....

Nail head.

Similar issues have cropped up whenever there were talks of oscar playing in a withdrawn position, luiz playing in midfield etc.

He's been great.

He's clearly been told to restrict his usual box-to-box duties so that there's less pressure on Essien who obviously shouldn't just be left alone to work by himself on the pitch after his injuries, and when paired with Ramires we all know which one is going to be used in the B2B role! They can't both go forward and leave acres of space behind! This is why he's opting for holding his ground at the moment, making the more simple passes (which in fairness we were actually missing last season) and putting in defensive shifts. He does it all.

I guess this is where Mikel or a new defensive midfielder (unlikely) comes in handy. Someone strong with good legs who holds their role is what's needed if we want to see this Lampard-like blueprint that is Van Ginkel.

Alternatively Jose could be molding him into an Xabi Alonso type player, something he definitely has all the tools for and a bold move which would save us from splurging cash on a playmaker in the long run assuming it works out.

Sometimes the very little things go unnoticed. It's the little things which Van Ginkel specialises at.

There's going to be massive competition for midfield places this season. We have many players that want to play in the middle and I think we'll probably have a double pivot this season meaning there's 2 slots. I don't see anyone at the moment who is a definite pick for the double pivot ! No stand out player to be honest ! Van Ginkel has a great great chance !

Not sure what your issue with Van ginkel's passing is, but it's been perfectly fine these last two games. Van Ginkel is also a much more complete player. Josh has magnificent passing but it takes much more than being a great passer of the ball to make it in the premier league in Josh's position. Van Ginkel may not be as good at passing, but on everything else he's ahead of Josh imo. Same as Chalobah

Modric and Scholes did well without being great defenders..

And that is only good for us. How many posts did I read last season saying Ramires/Mikel/Lampard/Benayoun weren't good enough for those positions? I honestly can't remember, they were countless! Now we have so much competition that everyone has to give it their absolute best to even get into the team, let alone hold the place down.

If we don't sign another midfielder this summer then Jose is trust Marco a lot, and I'm fine with that.

Like I said when we signed him before, a lot of you will be surprised by his maturity on the pitch. If Mourinho has faith in him instead of signing a De Rossi for example then I'm okay with it.

Lol. Hypothetically speaking, he's trying to pass to Essien, but sees an opponent right on him, so what should he do? bear in mind it's not like he has all day to make a decision, he's been pressured by the opposition. So he makes the right decision to go back to an open man instead of losing the ball - and you criticize him for this?!
