NewCorkSethSnowflake RoyalJohn Madejski's Wallet How the hell has Semedo become the player we must unbalance the team to accommodate?
I actually think he's half decent, but he's not good enough to warrant spazzing around with the team
It's mind boggling that Pauno has decided to move him back into defensive midfield and push Rino forward.
Rino's tracking, tackling, fouling and driving runs are huge for the team. He's the midfielder who has the least goals, least assists, least shots per game, least key passes per game. And inexplicably he's been pushed up.
It's not worked once and Pauno persists in three games now. Madness.
It's so unquestionably the wrong thing to do as well. We genuinely looked a more balanced team with Semedo further forward.
I cant think of any reasons that satisfy the need for it.
Three possibilities I can see.
1) Pauno is genuinely an utter incompetent
2) Pauno is trying to decide if he wants to buy Semedo as a defensive midfielder and so wants to see him actually play there
3) Pauno has been affected by the fan criticism that Semedo is a DM not an AM.
1 seems unlikely given how well we've done so far.
2 doesn't explain why Rino is displaced instead of Laurent who is more suited to attacking
3 might as well be 1 with the same issue as 2
