Re: Seb Larsson
I've no qualms about him being a squad player next season, but he really didn't impress me from open play at all last season and his set pieces suffered an alarming dip in quality from around New Year onwards. Two assists all season for someone who took 85% of our set pieces is shocking, if we're going to be honest.
He works his bollocks off, of that there is no doubt but defensively he's awful, commits far too easily and is almost always beaten for pace by the winger/fullback.
If we could get a more offensive minded fullback in to help him deliver some telling crosses from open play then we may see the best of him, but while the likes of O'Shea and Bardsley are behind him Larsson is little more than a passenger in open play.
A handy squad player, but not much more than that in my opinion.
Paolo, it's spelt Paolo.
