I had opportunities to watched him more carefully. I gave him a global update so, set was far outdate.
So M'villa turned to an only deep distributor. He almost put down his aggressivness off the ball to steal it and intercept into leg a lot of balls. He's waiting and walking just over the center back low in the mieldfield, still able to defend well anyway, but more relax, without harass the opponents on ball. Then, he's playing with little of touch. He seems to have lost any of speed, or at least not playing with it anymore. He's waiting mostly for his wingers to make a good runs and deliver then really great balls. Far enough for Ligue 1, he's a good player for Saint Etienne on the mieldfield.
