I hope he starts looking for forward passes instead of passing backwards every time, if not he risks losing his place to Hudson Odoi who is more daring in space in this 3-4-2-1 formation. 

This is something that James definitely needs to improve on. He needs to be more progressive, to vary his passes. It feels like he's become too much of a RB/RWB that's just good at crossing the ball. 

And ironically with this back 3, Lamptey would have been much more suitable in this system than James.

Watching the game against Norwich and has been the standout player and most obvious choice for MOTM. His strength is ridiculous. Amazing how he is relied on for their set pieces also. Real gem we have

He deleted Instagram because of abusive messages yesterday. Why would someone do something like that to him? 

He has to be strong and not care about whatever people are saying. 

In general, famous people should not read social media, it is so toxic. 

And every celebrity has some haters but many of them have this mindset of zero fuck given and laugh about it. 

Nothing wrong with being sensitive but Reece has to develop this habit for himself. He has to know that whatever these idiots are saying does not say anything about him but about them.

Not saying you're necessarily wrong but it's easy to sit here and tell others to ignore abuse when you're not the one getting it and especially when he's been getting a lot of racist abuse on IG, which is totally uncalled for to put it kindly. There's always gonna be fucked up people out there but one of the main issues here is these social media companies are doing fuck all to protect their platform, to make it as safe or clean as possible for people to use it.

I feel he regressed from last season. Dont offer much.

He isn´t suited to the wingback role. I think he would be a beast at RCB.

Would be terrible idea, James isn't very good defensively unlike Azpilicueta.

James is a decent 1 vs 1 defender. His defensive shortcoming is his positioning in a back four (look at the Bayern match), which is much less of a problem at RCB. He is strong, has a good leap and decent enough pace for the RCB position. His lack of stamina wouldn´t be that much of a problem also when compared to his wingback outings.

Anyone who isn't very good at defending shouldn't really have any position in the defence, especially for teams looking to challenge for the big trophies.

For me, one of his big problems is his physique. He looks more like a Rugby League player than a footballer. He's a bit too big and bulky which makes him a bit too slow in his reactions and movements and a bit one paced, which also makes h look a bit lazy at times.

Seems to lack intensity and concentration. Still young enough and has got the potential, it just takes a bit of work to get those things, maybe through experience at the top level also. I mean look at Trent Alexander-Arnold, his intensity in defending and concentration hasn’t been there this season. Doesnt mean hes a poor player or that he cannot turn it around. I do think CHOs emergence at RWB with Tuchel should push him more though, Callum has sort of fined his defensive side of his game as we have seen at times and whilst he’s not a natural defender, he does the yards and he’s also more fearless and direct with the ball which can hurt teams where as James seems more reserved in that department, not looking to beat his man a lot.

Don't see why people are rating him so highly. Seems to close his eyes and just cross anywhere when there's many better options. Rather than sending through forwards he stops and goes backwards or sends a cross to the GK. Shouldn't sell him, but definitely need an upgrade in RB in summer.

Nonsense.
