Glad to hear that re Semedo, not least because some folk still want him sold yesterday.Nah was a joke, I hope he stays as well for sure. I think our defence got very noticeably worse when he left, Jonny did notch a few goals which Semedo needs to contribute more of but Jonny looked really really lost at RB. Semedo would be better in a 4 I think, less goal contributions required but his ball retention and ball progression (per his position he is basically our best at it) would be great.
I know Jonny is a career left back but as an experienced right footer I was disappointed with him, as harsh as that sounds. He lost that power and aggression. He's never been a sprinter but was sharp over 5/10 yards and smashed into people. I remember Mourinho's team talk to his Spurs side before our game and he specifically mentioned Jonny for his aggression.
Not about cutting people in half just about being aggressive when a winger is back to goal, seemed like he was in no man's land constantly. Doubt we could get a fee for him of any note, but if we could get around the £10M region I'd strongly consider it as well.
I'd like to see Jonny with a full pre-season before l think about writing him off. He looked knackered after an hour which suggests he hadn't got up to full match fitness and stamina. I believe that he sometimes played RB in Spain.
