I wouldn’t give that as an own goal personally he had to challenge for the ball
I don't see how you can say that, the shot has barely any pace on it and the keeper is well behind it, he actively gets involved and kicks it, he didn't have to challenge for it at all, there was no attacking players pressing him.

Does every right back come with a user who has to defend every action that right back makes?

Fair point. Its an own goal. Always knew he was crap. £70M you’re having a laugh.

The keeper was already on the floor about to claim it. I guess you could question if the keeper gave him a shout, but you can't question if it's an own goal when he's smashed it past the goalie when he's about to catch it.

Ah yes because there's nothing in between defending clear errors and calling him shit and no longer worth signing, total binary.

Any player can turn the ball into their own net, just like any player can concede a sloppy penalty or free kick.

Has no bearing on his footballing ability or value IMO, not like he was banging them in at the wrong end every week for Palace.

you can do a lot with binary code 0101? Pleb
yeah you couldn't argue your point, tried to defend it by being sarcastic about a point I never made suggesting saying it was an own goal means he's not good enough and I'm the pleb, pathetic.

It felt and looked panicked. It needed, in my opinion, the keeper to take charge and call it as his ball. He didn’t, which resulted in Wan-Bissaka feeling he had to clear it. The issue that arises as a result is that he is HUGELY one footed, no that he can’t defend, or clear a ball.

I don't think that seems ridiculously expensive
Agree but also there really hasn't been any indication we were interested other than AliZ and others saying we won't pay their price. Also who knows if 55m is accurate, the base plus add-ons, or the max, etc.

That's MUFC RB position sorted for the next decade. The cost will look peanuts if he continues with this progression. Many were scoffing when MUFC paid £30m for Rio in 02, didn't look so expensive by the time SAF retired!!!

We should have been in there. Sell Trippier for £25m or so and it's a bargain.

We also heard the sorted for the next decade line when they signed shaw and last season when they signed dalot. It cuts both ways, we'll see but AWB does look a great player.
