genome3points Gunter looks so much better when his first movement is forwards rather than stop and go backwards or sideways.
That was a frustration all evening for me. The full backs seemed to gather the ball in decent areas and instead of pushing forward, they went sideways or backwards which killed any momentum when the opportunity looked there to stretch them. Obita was particularly culpable. The centre backs were pushed wide enough that they could cover.
Gunter does virtually nothing except for this in the first two thirds of the pitch, unless it's a hopeful long ball. We need people who look for the quick positive move, not check back and bottle it every time there's a hint of pressure.
