I really like the bloke and I think he has huge potential. Of course there have been some wobbly games, he's only 21 and has played a gnat's fart over 900 minutes of Premier League football, but when he's good he's very, very good. Apparently he played a blinder for Argentina the other night.

Have to say I'm all for this. I like when centre backs shift to full backs as they are better defenders. Would give Foyth more game time for sure as even if tobs leaves Sanchez will take over the majority.

I know everyone loves a good meg, but defensively it is way worse if an opponent blows straight past you. At least if you get megged you have time to re-gather yourself and the attacker still has to re-posses the ball at some speed. It really just looks cool and has a catchy name.

Two totally different scenarios, most of the time (if I am visualizing this correctly).
Generally speaking blowing past someone you’re not even thinking about megging them. Kick the ball past them, run around them, continue. Megging you’re close quarters, do them dirty, call them a wanker, collect and continue. I agree with the general premise of your comment, though.

Correct. If there's space behind a defender to run into, and you nutmeg them, it's because they were too square to you, and it really doesn't take that much more skill than the classic touch around and go move that I remember Jurgen Klinsman always doing when I was young. If you get nutmegged at close quarters, it's more often because of genuine skill on the part of the player with the ball, like the move from Lamela skiathos just referenced. I've always said that one thing about Messi (especially when he was a little younger) that reminds me of Maradona is his ability to beat players with a quick move or two while at a dead sprint.

Best one I ever saw was a lad I played with that went pro... my pal and Matty upson were the two big hitters and my pal drew Upson in, dropped a shoulder and megged him, called it and patted him on the head as he went past, stopped the ball and meghed him again going back to where he started, laughing.
