Thought the service to him was poor and he really didn't have much to work with. He'll do well for us and will only get better.

His thinking seems really quick and he's 5 seconds ahead of Perez.  That miss by Perez early in the second half against West Ham just sums him up. Give him time to think and he's stuffed.  I would like to see Almirion playing as a number 10 off Rondon with an extra attacking midfield player for support.

Although he's been utter s**** this season I actually think Kenedy at left wing back rather than Ritchie would benefit Almiron - Ritchie's instinct is to go down the line and cross the ball in. If you watch the games again, the times when Ritchie ignores Almiron are when he's asking for the ball down the line, where Ritchie himself wants to end up. Kenedy is more comfortable coming inside onto his 'weaker' foot and makes less linear, formulaic runs, so that flexibility of movement would probably see Almiron getting the ball more.
Having said all that, Rafa might want Ritchie to make those down the lines runs, in which case Almiron needs to find space elsewhere which will come in time.

Thought he was absolutely fine on Saturday.  Slightly bemused as to why people would be in any way concerned by his performance.

Same, he was fine. Gonna be absolutely cringeworthy seeing some of the overreactions if he actually does have a bad game.

I wouldn't worry too much, these people aren't very imaginative, they'll probably repeat the same s*** again.

Put two or three very good crosses in during the first half still despite being quiet, just no one made the run or both players in the box made the same run/ dropped back.

Never stops running which is nice to see. Carries the ball well but sometimes forgets he's not still up against MLS defenders when he attempts to cut back or dribble past too slowly.

Wicked shot that Pickford could only put on a platter for Ayoze though :lol: Can't wait for the scenes when one of his goes in.

I was thinking he might need taking off, urgently, then he hit that shot which led to the equaliser and all of a sudden he was quality. The key was taking Ritchie away from him. I wonder if it's time to try Paully D in the Ritchie role. The latter was rubbish today.

Was p*ssed off the amount of times Ritchie completely ignored him and turned to pass it back. Seems to be a common thing up to now also.

There's absolutely nee chemistry between them, like. There's nowt silly in it, they just don't really click and, tbh, Ritchie's in a bit of s*** form. Not a lot coming off for him recently and he was quite poor today I thought. No coincidence we improved when Rafa took him off the left and ultimately off the pitch.

Ritchie clearly has some sort of a personal hatred for him now. A few times Miggy just threw his arms up in the air, asking WTF?

Or a cross or forwards pass to a teammate.

His shot for the 2nd goal was straight out of Joselu's wishlist.

I actually think that he resents him because he has all the quality that he doesn’t have and wishes he does have.

Ritchie is generally out best crosser of the ball, admittedly he's in bad form at the moment, so its not really paying off.

Yeah, he's a professional footballer, and one of our most dedicated player, I highly doubt this is the case. :lol:

Yeah I've been swayed to this thinking. Thought the first few games it might have just been unfamiliarity or something but it's well past obvious now.

It is just silly to imply that.
Almiron is an exceptional talent who's directness and pace will be a great asset to us. Ritchie is a very experienced senior pro who's game is more pragmatic.
We need both sides.
