From what I've read and seen he is good defensively but doesn't offer much in attack. Barca fans either say he is amazing or overrated and can't get in the team ahead of Roberto. Apparently he gets in good positions only to turn around and pass it back every time (should fit in fine then lol).
Blimey - sounds like a reincarnation of Kyle Walker.

Steady on dude! I actually quite like Aurier and think he's improving steadily.
The problem is he will always suffer from a lack of concentration. Every couple of games there will be a moment he switches off and does stupid things. If we can sign someone that isn't prone to those errors it would be better.

Ironically, you could say exactly the same thing about Walker with us, but now we're constantly being told we flogged the best RB in the League (which I don't agree with at all).

Soz - the joke was too obvious to resist. I do actually like him when he's on form too. Was very excited when we signed him. Just that occasional brainfart and his unwillingness to track back. Hopefully we get somebody in to give him competition.

I always remember the utd game away where walker was an absolute liability and got bullied by Fellaini. Grass is always greener I suppose. Walker was an incredible athlete which made up for him being a bit thick and prone to silly errors. He also stopped taking people on the longer he was at the club. Still a fantastic player and better than what we have now. Not the world's best right back by a long way. Alexander Arnold looks to have Tripps delivery and Walkers athleticism. If he stays on the same trajectory he will be the best in the world.
