3. Marcos Alonso

Started by Spike,

 His reputation outside the club actually far exceeds him or the stark reality. The casuals only see the highlight plays such as the free-kicks and the odd goal he scores but they don't see just how basic and mediocre his game is. Just goes to show how few people actually watch matches before having an opinion on anything. Most casuals who have opinions on Chelsea players or on any other  teams' players excluding their own generally don't know what the fuck they're talking about. This is why I can't take such opinions seriously. Anyway, congratulations to the guy but its funny how one of our players that defines this new era of substandard quality makes the PFA team.

LOL, what a joke. :D Apparently scoring a couple of goals from free kicks is enough to get awards and be seen as a great player. :drunk:

Alonso in the team of the year. :lol:

The FA is trolling us.

Its because the amount of goals hes scored from his position. Cant be any other reason, hes a good player but team of the year maybe a bit much but in all fairness look at the top teams: Delph playing LB for City every week for months because of an injury to Mendy after like 3 weeks, Ben Davies for Spurs due to Rose's fitness, Ashley Young/Luke Shaw for United, Kolasinac or Monreal for Arsenal, Andy Robertson for Liverpool (I really think he should have been in contention though, as a Scotsman its great to see hes grown into one hell of a player, he played basically non professionally when he was 17/18 now hes playing CL football in the matter of like 6 seasons)... its hardly an outstanding pool of competition. At the likes of Southampton, Everton, West Ham who everyone probably expected to do quite well this season... the likes of Bertrand, Baines, Cresswell.. theyve hardly had good seasons I mean just look at the state of Southampton and West Hams defensive records as it stands.

The main reason he got this was because the overall state of Left Backs in the EPL this season was horrid.

Benjamin Mendy was injured and out for the year very early. 95% sure he would have won if not injured.

Man U and Man City mostly use backup MF's as makeshift LB's (Ashley Young and Fabian Delph, with Man U not playing Daley Blind)

Danny Rose was hurt for ages and shite when he came back for Spurs, his replacement, ben Davies is nothing special at all

Sead Kolasinac has been a semi bust at Arsenal, he barely starts anymore

All the rest left in the EPL are worse than those already listed

EXCEPT one

Andrew Robertson at Liverpool, who has been a revelation. One could make a case he should have won, but he didnt start much for the first part of the season.

We are on the exact same page.

Funny to see him of all players from our squad get selected. I'm sure Robertson would have been chosen had he been a starter all season.

In the PFA team of the year, what a way to silence the haters he has here. Clearly underappreciated on here.
I agree. Whilst he isn't exactly a great player, there aren't that many better LWBs out there. Meanwhile Moses pretty much escapes criticism altough he clearly has a worse season than Alonso.

I’m so happy you guys here are rational and don’t actually think Alonso has that TOTY spot because he’s an amazing player.

yes we know better than to value goals and assists. How silly of them!

We know what's really important in the game.

Its also one of the reasons why players like Hazard are severely underrated by opposition fans. Because he isn't exactly the 'goals and assists' type of player

Hoping this increases his value a little bit and we can offload him to one of the big teams.

Nah we appreciate Alonso. We all know that he is a decent player but if Alonso is the best left back this season, then the other left back are just horrible.

I think we all know he won because he is pretty good at freekick but other than that I don't think he has been spectacular this season

Same here.

In terms of potential and natural talent Emerson is head and shoulders above Alonso and has not put a foot wrong so far. I understand that Conte wanted to ease him in but now that the season is done why not give the fringe players a chance?

Moses escapes criticism? In TC? You're joking, right?

Anyway, I can see in an angle why Alonso is there. He is currently the highest goalscorer in the league as a defender.

But him scoring goals isn't his job, that's why we have attacking midfielders and strikers for. And he sucks at the job he's supposed to do. Along with Moses (who I agree, is worse than Alonso).

Alonso receives ban, good. Now Conte, use your brain and start Emerson. (I have to say 'use your brain' because Conte doesn't most of the time this season).

Scenes when Conte plays Zappacosta or Azpi at LWB instead of Emerson...

I guess that didn't work well, hardly silenced anyone on here. :lol: I'll repeat the popular opinion: He's there only because of his goals and free-kicks. Since when have we started taking TOTYs as a measure of greatness anyway? Most times they are farcical.

Just look at his thread it is always quiet and the fact that this only 50 posts were written in there is a testament to that.

Anway, I hope Emerson can put in a good performance tonight, we need good competition at the WB positions.
