chris Posted May 4, 2011 Share Posted May 4, 2011 As long as he breaks up opposition play and retains possession then he's doing a good job. Makelele was one of the best midfielders in Europe by doing just that. Maybe he'll become more adventurous with his passing as he matures, but for now there is nothing wrong with sideways/backwards passing if it keeps us on the ball. I do find it odd that he gets criticised for this. Most people seemed to dislike Allardyce's direct style - isn't N'Zonzi's style of passing in complete contrast to that? As Mark Bright said to me at a youth training course when I was 9, "if you have the ball the other team can't score" I don't think Hitler said that.
