Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
I really like Zabaleta's attitude and effort.
You can tell he cares and gives 100 percent and is not just here for one last payday.

That being said he does get caught out a lot at Right Back and seems to be in danger of picking up yellow cards most matches often against pacy wide players.

Would he do a better job as a defensive midfielder just protecting the back four and doing the job that the likes of Kouyate, Noble and Obiang fail to do?

People on WHO constantly moan about Bilic playing players out of position and then vomit up this fucking idea. Priceless.

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
In fairness he's probably our best right back, right wing back, centre back and defensive midfielder.

Some of the others would do well to adopt his attitude even if they can't match his ability

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
No

1 because he is not a CDM, Obiang should be playing there with Kouyate. Obiang is our best CDM by a mile

2 because that would mean playing Byram there and he is awful at defending

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
No he's a RB playing at the end of his career. His biggest crime on WHO is looking older than 32...

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
The fact that our defence is just about the worst in the PL and shows no sign of improving is proof that Bilic just isn't up to the job and should be shown the door. No amount of tinkering will cover up that plain fact.
Chicherito and Ayew put us in a great place on Saturday but we just can't manage a game and that's down to the moron in charge.

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
No, why would you do this, hes a right back, has from what i know always been a right back and a pretty fucking good one.

Tinkering with players and there position isnt a very good idea, Slav seems to like trying it and how often is it effective???

I still think he is old and past it, doesn't change the fact that he's the best we've got at RB and to play him in midfield would be beyond retarded.

So no I haven't contradicted myself at all. You have mugged yourself off. Congratulations.

Next idiot please!

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
As an experienced player with good motivation and temperament, a move of this kind would make perfect sense if it helped a younger prospect along.

I really don't see the problem Vexed.

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Vexed - no it isn't at that's my point, prior to this he was old man Zab,legs have gone, terrible signing.

Yet now you contradict yourself by calling someone out who says don't play him at right back..

Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
The position isn't unknown for him, he started his career as defensive midfielder

Vexed 11:29 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
I'm advocating Zabaleta playing on his proper position rather than midfield. Is that slagging him off?

fraser 11:00 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Take no notice of Vexed, he's done nothing but slag Zabaleta off since the day he signed, I would call him a massive cunt, but that would be wide of the mark as nobody could be that cunty, so obviously a comedy poster on a wind up.

Vexed 10:54 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Actually I think you'll find that home grown youth players that play for the first team of the club they joined as a youth are a tiny percentage of the players currently playin in the prem and as such considerably less important than the buying of players which we also do terribly. Plus our youth players are shit on the whole however much you protest otherwise Mex, you fucking vegetable.

So no, I will not indulge in the WHO obsession of naming and building up the prospects of some obscure teenager who has minimal chance of making it.

I just want us to play good football and win some games regardless of where the player came from.

So fucking eat that up you cunt.

Mex Martillo 10:41 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
What, don't care about the youth players, you cunt. That is the future, you demented prick. Has a single thought ever formed in your dense anencephalic head. The stupidest statement ever. Why don't you throw yourself under the next bus and save us from your wretched crap.

Vexed 10:08 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Couldn't care less. Don't care about youth players at all.

Hammer and Pickle 8:25 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
You don't seem thrilled by the idea Vexed.

But what if it allowed a young talent like Alex PIKE to make a breakthrough into the senior squad?

Vexed 8:12 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Oh shut up you daft fucking cunts. How the fuck is playing our only half competent right back IN FUCKING MIDFIELD ever a good fucking idea? Are you stupid? HOW THE FUCK IS THIS WORTH A TRY YOU FUCKING RETARDS?

One of the stupidest suggestions yet, and that's fucking saying something. Think about topping yourselves, you worthless cretins. Jesus wept.

Sir Alf 8:04 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
Might be worth a try as it is definitely a problem position. Team him up with Obiang or Noble. We need someone prepared to bust a gut, track runners, get behind the ball and keep position. Not sure Zab is that man, perhaps go back to trying Rice again. Desperate times, desperate measures. Reality is you defend as a team and that means everyone. The fact we dont points to the manager and the coaching. But its about opinions.

Alex V 12:08 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
I think it's worth a try, yes. Good suggestion.

solidbond 11:30 Sun Oct 29
Re: Should Zabaleta play as a defensive midfielder?
We don't have a defensive midfielder at the club ,that's the problem
