    What do you know? Yaser gets a start and gets a gol.

    Your defense of certain coaching decisions really confuses me sometimes. What do you mean, "if he's not ready"?

    He's proven he's ready. Yaser was a starter for his first Watford coach. Then and since, whenever he plays, he usually creates more chances than anybody else on his team. He's never been injured and he doesn't really get fouled very often.

    Being apprehensive to play the kid because he's wiry and small goes out the window once he does start playing and playing well. After that point, it's just stubbornness.

    The only justifiable reason not to start a player who produces is if the coach thinks he has more value as a super sub or if his presence on the field doesn't mesh with the rest of players on the field. If you're not winning, which Watford aren't, the 2nd reason is not a good one.

    Letting gols, assists, and created chances go to waste on the bench until the provider gains 15 more lbs he may never gain is, frankly, dumb.

    My statement was more a true question than an observation of certainty.
    The kid is not a consistent starter and was playing sparing minutes in the Championship recently.
    As a personal observation he looks a bit skinny and not as muscular of a physique to take a pounding in both the English Championship and in Qualifying. People are making it seem like Lorenzo is an idiot for not playing him but I like to look at both sides of the coin and not come with pitch forks and torches toward our manager and his decisions.
    Yaser is 19 and may need some time to transition into the tough battles that are Qualifying. He did not look ready to me and needs to prove it week in and week out consistently that he is ready.

    Wel
    I’m assuming it plays a role in the physical
    PL no?

    I agree that it doesn’t seem important in other leagues

    This is true, but if he can handle the Championship he should be alright.

    personally I think Lorezo likes a Nalgon so we'll wait until he's 28

    “My natural position is as a No.10, however I love playing as a high winger who attacks."
    That is was my gut feeling. None of this modern 8 stuff.

    in England they automatically stick you on the wing if they see that you are quick, with an eye for goal and can dribble, especially if you're not 6'2

    ok but we have plenty of 'high wingers that attack' in the pecking order but not too many "10s' or "8s"at the moment so if he wants minutes he's going to have to shift a bit more to that central role ala Carrascal who can create and score.

    All in all, no once can deny his pace and has solid IQ with the ball. Would love to see him get some real minutes.

    The J Arias role would be perfect for him in my opinion. Let's see how Lorenzo will play him. With all the injuries and suspensions he may finally get a chance to play these next two matches.

    Yeah not just for us either, there really aren't many teams who use 10's at all anymore and although he's good as a winger with him alwaying coming inside it makes sense to get him playing as an 8 who attacks. Its good he's versatile, but as he gets older I think the main thing is to move away from being a 10, its just not going to open alot of doors for you at club level in Europe.

    I was kind of thinking Lorenzo was setting us up with no reliance on a #10 role but I can tell he's wrapping this team around James.

    Yes, either adapt to play as an 8 in Europe or come home and play at 10 in Brazil or Argentina for less money. Those are the two paths...

    Well if he wants to have no reliance on a 10 then he needs to play 8's who want and are able to play with the ball at their feet, not Uribe and Lerma. Even with a 10 we have struggled with guys who can't play with the ball and the 10 can get marked to the ground. Also nobody James droppable because when he came in he clearly outshined the other 10's and the double 8 he tried had no chance tbh.

    It's not really "around" him. It's not of a hybrid between possession based and vertical movements.

    He's surrounded by more hardworking players, so it works

    hardworking and also a team that wants and seeks out possession which gives James more value. The press gets us the ball back quicker and when we get it we're using short passing and movement, which unfortunately previously we weren't pressing and then when we got the ball we were out of ideas how to use it.

    this makes sense. One thing I've noticed in James 2.0 is that he's making that transition pass really quickly. He's not holding on to the ball the way he did in the last cycle and with players around him making the proper runs it def plays to his strengths.
