Thread: Massimo Luongo is the best midfielder in the championship

  1. #16

    All championship midfielders with more than 4 appearances so far this season.



    Todays ratings... Only their keeper was higher rated. Keep saying I'm on a wind up but if you take off the ####ed off glasses and put on logical ones, the guy was much better than you thought. Only thing that stopped him being man of the match was having a defence that decided to ignore the midfield in the first half.

Looking forward to the next thing fans find to criticize the kid on.
    Definitely starting to look half decent & consistent. Fair play because i couldn't see it a year ago.

    Cant argue with those stats.
    We should be proud of him, hes playing so well this season.
    Think Scowen is his perfect partner and thats the reason.

    Interesting that Scowen only got a 6.9 on there though. I thought he played well, especially given the fact he was on the end of 3 horrible challenges. Just dusted himself off and got on with it. Exactly the sort of midfielder that we were missing last season in my opinion!

    me too, i think its coz scowen's role is underappreciated by most other fans whereas we love finally having a player like that in the team. he sure allows mass and luke to really play the way they're best suited too. i'd rather keep scowen than mass if i had the choice tbh

    Ok I really like Scowen but you can't be serious can you? Mass does literally everything. Tackling? Yep, Intercepting? Yep, Heading? Yep, Through Balls? Yep, Dribbling? Yep, Chasing and hassling? Yep, even Shooting now? Yep.

    I swear the guy could be our top scorer by the end of the season and people will say, yea but x, y or z got more assists...

    I think we'll get at least 2m for him in January on this form, maybe 2.1m.

    Because yet again the defence went to sleep for a moment early in the second half. Happens every bloody game!

    Luongo still has real upside potential, and as Ollie and others have said if he starts scoring as well, watch out. Do think he reflects a much more capable trio of himself, Scowen and Freeman; latter two have been awesome so far this season as well.

    Noticeable that he is now having shots when last year he shyed away from this.

    Got decent shoot on him when he lets fly

    yes but even you can admit that for the past 2 seasons mass has been limited and inconsistent, along with pretty much every other player we have. bringing in scowen has allowed luongo to fully play the role hes best at, allowed luke to be a proper creative spark, shielded the defence and allowed everyone more freedom to do stuff. for the past 2 seasons mass tried to play that same role but couldn't, well at least not very well anyway. josh was exactly what we were missing which is why i see him as our most important player
