Another Moyes boob on defender who got away

By Simon Leyland

Issa Diop is now playing some of the best football of his career at Fulham, making our decision to sell him seem like yet another mistake.

Moyes let him go having allegedly made it clear to him that he was at the bottom of his personal pecking order at central defence. As a result the young man demanded a move and got it!


According to our second favourite anoraks at sofascore: In 18 Premier League appearances for Fulham this season, Diop has averaged 1.2 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 2.7 clearances per game. He has also won an average of 1.3 aerial duels per game. and made 53.1 passes per match and has recorded an impressive completion rate of 85.5%.

Given our current injury concerns in the centre-back department and the fact that we sold Craig Dawson in January. Can we have him back please?

The Fulham equivalent of ClaretandHugh has been gushing with praise for the seemingly reborn centre back.

It has to be asked: What is Marco Silva doing David Moyes didn`t?

Answers on a postcard pleaseā€¦

  1. Yes we’ll highlighted Simon he couldn’t get near the first team here, but Fulham top six he has no problem with. I think it is clearly asked and answered with what is Silva doing that Moyes didn’t!

  2. Played him right side centre back instead of on the left so as not to compromise his star man Zouma (instead compromising his weaker centre back, and of course later on compromising Zouma anyway when Dawson was back by playing him on the left).

    Plus he probably coached him rather than just told him to ‘stop goals’.amd left it at that.
