Nerfed Aggression, disobeys direct commands to get involved in attack (basically an attack arrow in old gen PES), sits deep does nothing, too static, this was partly present last season, he less and less ventured into the box, Tata was trying to remould him into a deep playmaker, I dont think he knows how to adapt to that role, he is best connecting play, but he needs to be moving forward into space off the ball or dribbling with ball up the park, not just fucking sitting waiting to become Pirlo, he functions better when he is in tighter spaces with teammates - thus closer to the box - as was seen tonight with his assist. https://youtu.be/Lar7R9b9D34?t=489
The only time he got forward after De Boer specifically called him to touch line (second time in 2 mins) and explained what he wanted from him. Immediately, Martinez has someone to combine with and Nagbe even got close enough to make a shot. But right after the goal he fucked off and went deep again.
I dont get why lost his way, since this was like his natural style years ago, creative passes at edge of box, just too much of a school boy listening to ppl to play against his nature.
...though maybe he is just retarded, as I'm sure he has been told to close down players too, but he still does not do it, he is the laziest player I have ever seen in the mid (no hyperbole), no reaction to passes near him or dribblers tearing his team apart, only once, last season vs NYCFC at home in playoffs he did press, every other goddamn time he lets everyone else do the work. So Response is generously at 55, if we used the full range of the scale he needs to have 5 for Response, level withjh an 8 year old who just jogs up and down with the team irregardless of where the ball is.
