James Tarkowski

Post by jdrobbo » Sat Nov 23, 2019 4:54 pm

Two assists, two cleansheets and a goal in the last two games. He absolutely should be in the middle of England’s defence ahead of Tyrone Mings.

Outstanding player (slip aside)

Quick reaction to follow up with his left after initial shot with his right

Just a shame he was incorrectly booked for that great challenge on edge of the area

The fewer of our players play for England the better for me. I prefer them to fly under the radar.

I’d have him ahead of Maguire, never mind Mings.

He wasn't booked for that, it was for the 'kind of' last man tackle.

That one you refer to was an abysmal decision though. Good job it didn't cost us!

Tarky been very good this season barring a wobble v sheff u.

No idea why I put that.
In my head I was saying “penalised” but for some reason typed “booked”

Englands issue is not being able to defend, other than VVD and possibly Johnny Evans I currently don't see 2 better "defenders" - they won't get a chance though because of average distribution unfortunately

Our distribution is a fair comment though for me, you play to the style you want to see and long ball football doesn’t suit out world class players like Sterling & Kane

I didn't mention our style of play, I mentioned their distribution not being good enough for Southgate - defensively there aren't many better imho

Tarkowski nearly cost us a goal today, like he did against Sheff United. He needs to clear the ball, rather than try and play his way out of trouble.

What are you disagreeing with then? I’m saying England’s Style of play is no long ball football, ie their distribution is to play out from the back without bypassing the best players on the pitch

Which answers the question of why he doesn’t get selected even though he’s a great player

Interesting that Mourinho got Spurs' first away win in a long time by 'bypassing their best players '.

He had a great game but was walking a type rope second half and i was concerned he was going to get a second yellow-

highlight was when he walloped the ball out of the ground over the 2 tier graham Taylor stand- class

The key person to keep is obviously Ben Mee.

So can we clone him?

It's those little lapses that get us beaten by quicker and better teams than Watford. We could, and should, have been one nil down at half time.

He's good, but not that good

I'd forgotten about that.

Also found it odd that the Arsenal back 5 were never the England back 5 when they were that good as a unit.

Tarko cost me £70. I had Wood first goal and 2-0 @ 70/1 ! I'll forgive him but he owes me a pint...

It depends. Against Sheff United and Watford Tarkowski probably thought he could take a risk, and in most cases it probably would work. Whether wise to do so is another matter.

However, against the likes of Man City I doubt even Tarkowski is going to try that. He'll probably boot it clear.
