So one think I would like to ask everyone's opinion on. What is it about willock. Not one to slate our players or anything like this so it's not a hate post. Just for the life of me I cannot see what is special about him.

Agree0 Disagree0

He looked good in the opening couple of games when Emery started him but has looked lost since in my opinion mate.
Positive is if he looked good to start with there is something there
Negative it's not enough to be occasionally good, consistency is key to a good career.

There isn’t nothing special about him that’s why lol.

I really like him, I think he's great at tracking back and he has a physical presence about him.

I also think people overlook him due to Saka, Nelson and Eddie being more exciting talents, but I think that there's potential for a decent player.

It was only about a year or so ago when I wasn't too fussed about him, I think he's come on leaps and bounds recently and there is more to come in my opinion!

He's only 20, so perhaps let's stay away from broad generalisations saying he's no good, eh?

In my view, he's excellent in his attacking positioning and his intelligence in the final third. Where he struggles is in the quick passing phases and his defensive positioning where he tends to either get bypassed or caught out. He reminds me very much of a young Aaron Ramsey, and I don't think we saw the best of Aaron until his mid-20s. He needs the right partners next to him who can help him learn where and when to sit deeper. At the moment he is a handy bench player and currently our top scorer from midfield.

It's hard to assess the players without seeing them on a consistent run of games. I like that MA is not afraid to use the kids.

He’s a ball carrier, he gets us up the pitch in a direct way by taking on opponents and driving forward. The reasons you are not seeing the best of him yet are a combination of things, mainly being; his age and lack of experience up against seasoned and stronger fully developed midfielders and where he is being required to play in that his role is to transition us from defense to attack. This is a tough job in any team but particularly in our side right now and in my mind he’s doing a damn Better job at it than Ozil has in the last 3 years so let’s give him the time to learn his place and develop physically and as a footballer before we start dismissing a clearly talented boy.
