Thing is he did so well when Toby was out last year.
My armchair view of it is that he's much better in a 2 than a 3. He seems to read the game better when there is open space around him for him to run into. And that's what he has with Colombia in a partnership with the big, lumbering Mina.

But because Jan and Toby are so locked-in for us, he's always out there in a 3 where he has to make snap decisions on who to take and who to leave in a confined area, he doesn't have an island of his own to mark.

I don't think it's what's best for the club, but what's best for Dav is probably for Toby to move on.

Him and Jan together were doing the business.

He had a decent enough game last night in the Copa America semi against Chile, pinged some pretty pinpoint long range crossfield passes during the match, still a bit suspect defensively at times.
For the first goal that Chile had disallowed, he and Ospina got in each other's way, but obviously watching on TV you can't tell who was at fault as regards giving the other player a call.

Keeper should own the box.. He should call and steamroll the defender if need be.

Yes, in that situation it's the keeper's call, but you couldn't tell from the pictures if Ospina called or not to Sanchez, if he did, it's down to Sanchez, if he didn't Sanchez was right to just go and try to clear the ball and Ospina was to blame.

Didn't see the game mate... Just stating 'rule of thumb'.

Spot on. One of my mates played in goal at quite a decent level, he always said that he would scream "keeper" and anyone that got in the way got clattered.
He used to say that was the difference between a good goalkeeper and a great one. A good keeper will make saves but a great does that and commands his box.

I never forget.....
Why he had a great first season, had a hard season last year but has great ability and is young with Toby maybe leaving and Verts getting on why would we move on Sanchez.

I haven’t given up on him yet but he does worry me with any challenge in the box

I was told the same at kids level (and that as a GK the defenders 'work' for you).... That and never hesitate; whatever you do commit to it 100%.

Agreed. We have two young defenders in him and Juan that love a silly challenge.
Dav? ...When?

1 red card vs Watford for a debatable elbow and now he has a track record of silly challenges?

The few blunders he's made were simply getting outfoxed by an ST.

Sounds like typecasting Aurier as the man that can't take a throw because of one game (even tho u see them up and down the league every week going unpunished).

People blame the Woolwich pen on him rather than the diving scumbag
