What the hell is an assist in football, I totally understand what it is in basketball but in football everything is an assist
I play a corner kick to someone but another hits it in, yay , its an assist for me, i take a weak shot and the goalkeeper fumbles it and someone scores, yay its an assist, i pass the ball to my team mate, he does unbelievably well to score the goal, well its an assist
Zlatan has been good, but great?come on. He has had 3 very good matches, and the rest have ranged from average to poor, has no idea how to free himself, has no pace to beat his opponents so off course he is closed down easily
And he has played in every game this season and played 90 minutes in majority of the games so his goals have to be high and so called assist as well
I am too of the opinion that Camo was the best player last month and not sure why Dp got it but of cos he is the most beloved and that usually comes into play and to be fair did score in a lot of the games and many of them winning goals.
Nope he is not like the focal point of the attack as we tend to hoof the ball in the air for Zlatan while Dp has to come in deep and feed of scraps but we still compare him to that brilliant player who thrilled us many years ago and that will always be the cross he has to bear. Competing with his past, only 1 winner I am afraid
