Arfield

Recommended Posts


I thought he played a bit better the last 30minutes or so yesterday but still well below last seasons performances. He did play well away to Midtjylland

He hasn't really had a break in the Summer like a lot of our players, I think he could be doing with a spell on the bench.  He ceratinly doesn't suit that right wing type role.

Getting off lightly because Tav has been well below par. 

He’s been horrible this season. A shadow of the player last year and has contributed fuck all this season. 

Needs benched. 

Yep. Needs dropped. He was paying in Jack's role yesterday. He needs to be further forward and central if he plays just now. His form is well off so if he plays he needs to play where he plays best.

Wouldn't start him against Ross County this week!!

Airfield is dynamic when he is playing well

And recently he hasn't been playing well.Think you will find he doesn't play in next 2 games . Certainly from the start 

I would say I agree with you regarding him playing the next two games but after yesterday I don't have a clue what sort of team Gerrard will stick out.

People saying Tav has been well below par are too focused on the easy target...

Arfield, Ojo, Aribo...have all been much worse than Tav.

Even last week against Hearts, Tav cost the goal and his delivery wasnt great, but at least he got into the position to try and cross it, take on his man and drive the ball forward...there are too many getting away with murder because Tavs high profile mistakes are taking the spot light.

It was the same yesterday, Aribo, Arfield, Stewart, Barker all done absolutely nothing all game, yet Tav is the bad guy for missing a penalty.

Drives me mad!

He was as bad as he is now for the majority of last season. 

This is completely false.

Yes at times last year he was not playing great, but so far this season he's been an empty jersey and looks disinterested as well.

He played his part in many games last year, scum games/Europe etc. This season he gets pass marks in about 2/3 max. I was concerned we brought him back too early in pre season and think that has been a huge factor. There was no need to bring him back for matches against St Josephs and Progres. The argument he had an extra week off at the end of last season was mind boggling.

Times last season he was the only midfielder giving us something going forward. 

This season he's been way off form and not contributing. A spell on the sidelines battling to get his place back is needed.

He's our captain. He should be playing much better. But when did he last not start a game? He's started almost every game the last 3 seasons.

True actually, but still rubbish for the vast majority. 

He’s not the only one, but seems to get a pass based on Tav, Goldson and Ojo soaking up most of the stick.

Wouldn't say that. Theres plenty of folk giving Arfield stick. It's mostly online rather than at the game where it's the guys you mentioned who are getting the stick.

Best alongside Defoe if Morelos is absent, otherwise leave him out.

Can see Kent doing more work infield as we push Tav and Barisic so far forward.

Even with an underperforming Arfield, I’d still get shot of King and Barker.

He can't find any sort of goal scoring form and that's what we need from him more than anything.  If he plays out wide, or in the middle, your looking for him to get in the box and score goals and it's not happening.

He might be the captain but that doesnt make him immune from poor performances or mistakes.

We are so reliant on him on the right hand side it is frightening, people asking for him to be dropped/rested are in for a shock when we have to play Polster or Flanno there, neither of which can even get on the bench, as they dont have anywhere near the ability to attack like Tav does.

We are the only team in the world that are critical of players for being fit enough to play 50+ games season after season!

Arfield has been very poor this season.  I believe we get the best out of him playing centrally just behind the striker.   When he isn't playing there he disappears and offers next to nothing.
