I absolutely agree regarding his pace. It’s more about his total commitment and endeavour I guess. Love his determination and just feel his manic nature would have backs mindful of his presence.Agree re: O’Rourke, Lovell (terrible), but Greenwood isn’t nearly quick enough to be that defensive presence that Popeye is. Can’t get from possession to possession to keep pressuring & cause turnovers (or 2nd options) like Popeye does.
It’s also that he is dangerous overhead and could exploit a favourable matchup.
But yeah, lacks the pace so fair con.
He isn’t a midfield need for mine.
