The Mathew Leckie hype thread

I don't know what was wrong with him. Every time he received the ball, he'd either stop and pass backwards or walk the ball forwards. No drive at all. 

Nabbout has been guilty of this this season too. Last season everytime he'd get the ball he'd be attacking defenders. Certainly noticable.

Last night I had the opportunity to watch him closely and he definitely was off the pace. His speed, which has been a plus, was gone and an injured Risdon regularly tackled him. It didn't help that passing the ball to advantage was rare but against other players he could make his way out.

My take is that the game plan is obvious, there is no alternative for the players to go forward and when Nabbout stormed his way through, he'd commit a foul.
