But I don't see the initiative, desire and drive that makes the difference between Good and Great player...

And I detest the way Chelsea play short passes in midfield only to launch a 50 yard pass into the opposition defence moments later, its not the ideal way to develop a Complete midfielder.

Truer words have never been spoken!

I think Mikel is a lazy player who doesn't believe he can be better than average :(

The reason why I stopped supporting him...his apparent lack of desire to better his game.

Same here. I mean, we can only blame Jose Mourinho for so long

Questions from WYC 05 for una wey wan make Mikel be JJ..

4. What were his strengths and weaknesses from that tournament????


My broda, the thing done tire me. I don't know which Mikel they watched win the silver boot in Holland'05. From the very first game I watched, I noticed he was not an attacking midfielder in the mold of JJ or nwosu or any of the past SE attacking midfielders (and mentioned this on a thread 2 yrs ago - i no get time for research). The kid likes to sit deep - just in front of the DM and string passes from that position. Every once in a while pushing forward to join the attack just outside the box. He never did a lot of running and certainly took like close to zero shots on goal the entire tournament. Yet, he was voted second best. What did the voters see? What did manU & chelsea see? What has Jose seen?


When I see learned folks like Enugu talk about Obi's skill set in the same context as JJ, I am befuddled. Did we watch the same WYC tournament. The same Obi that virtually lived beside Kaita, sending long balls down the flanks. Barely got into the opponents 18.

When RDM is ready to play attacking football he will move his defence a bit higher up the pitch... You don't expect mata to get the ball just outside his own 18 yard and go on a mazy run same as hazard and Torres.

Yes, I saw that. Kinda premature though. He did not have a great game, lost the ball three times at least but also made some tackles, passes and blocks and played 90 minutes. While it was a trophy match and should be taken seriously it is still early in the season. All told would never go by ratings to know how Mikel plays...I believe he plays much better than they rate him.

Not this revisionist history again :blush:

He did run at the opposing defnce in 2005 with the FE and later with Lyn Oslo.

More importantly he showed a passing range, even from deep, that directly influenced the attacking game.
