I was responding to that he was saying he is a stinker.
a few good games doesn't make him a class act. He has one of the easiest jobs in world football and sticks out like a sore thumb. He will be gone by the end of next season as he has been found out.

'A few good games' lol what? We're talking about one of the best left backs in Europe in 2016/17 and a player who is statically the best LB in the league this season, stop making stuff up just to force a point, it's nonsense.

I'm getting worried, he might be joining Dembele and Wanyama as a permanent crocked player. Thoughts he was getting back towards best at start of season, and now injuries holding him back again. We could definitely use a fit Danny Rose right now

Is his heart really in it is the question i would ask again. Seems to be injured a lot and sometimes it’s easier to stay injured than play.

Don't know that anyone would consider Mendy a stinker. Maybe he didn't have a great game, but he's played really well this season as been highlighted by several pundits. He's also just coming off a knee injury which are historically tough on footballers.

Got the lowest rating again :
Benjamin Mendy

Looks great storming forward but he needs to start cutting out the careless defensive mistakes that have started to creep into his game. 6

I don't think he can cope with the Premier League. When even Southampton force errors you know you have problems.

According to Whoscored he is the highest rated Left back in the Prem this season.

That and with Walker being widely recognised as the best Right Back it says a lot about the general quality of fullbacks these days. Neither Walker or Mendy can hold a candle to say Cyril Knowles or Joe Kinnear or Phil Beal.
Totally different players playing in a different era to be fair.

That ain't true. Nostalgia's a great thing, but I remember standing in the Park Lane, ealy 70's and watching Terry Cooper of Leeds, destroy that whole defence time and again with his runs down the wing, and turning inside when he wanted. We had no one to counter his pace.

He had Eddie Gray on that left side to help, but didn't need him much. Giles had a field day. Could have done with a Kyle Walker that day. Think we have a better defence now than we did then.

And when Cooper was gone, Frank Grey came onto the scene and the brothers brought havoc to every other team.

Honestly Kyle Walker was and still is a lot better footballer than a lot of people will ever give him credit for. Defensively he is a shutdown FB that completely controls his flank in 90% of the games he plays. I miss him and peak Rose so much.

Knowles and Kinnear would have been very at home in the modern game and would have been worth absolute fortunes. Beal was more defensively minded but still an outstanding fullback.

After Kinnear took his RB position due to his long absence through injury, Beal came back to be an outstanding CD.
