Yes technique is not the best but like you said he is a fighter with iron lungs. He doesn´t have to be expert on dribblings like Jay Jay Okocha or Ariel Ortega to do his role. I believe he can catch better shape like autumn 2014. At that time he was even supposed to start in Tbilisi. Everything was prepared, you know Mr. Nawalka, he is a perfectionist. Kucharczyk had tons of information and instructions. But you could see it in his eyes that he wasn´t mentally ready for the task and he didn´t take place in first eleven. The rest is history like they use to say.
I don´t agree with you but you might think I am wrong if you like, no harm
Legia is only having two quality defenders available. Pazdan and Hlousek. Broz was in a freezer for some time and now taking Bereszynski´s place because he went to Sampdoria. Dabrowski (and Czerwinski) was a panic signing this summer, he is just ekstraklasa level that´s all. To bad Jedrzejczyk can not play. Both Pazdan and Dabrowski are limited in offensive, they don´t have ability to open attacks with long and precise passings or Sergio Ramos speed with the ball at their feet
. Only offensive efforts they can make are corners at opponents half.
If Ajax get early 1-0 then it will be very hard to achieve something with Jodlowiec and Kopczynski. Despite 4-3-3 Ajax didn´t have any problems with winning duels on midfield or slipping through with quality passes. Ajax looked nervous when Legia put little pressure on them and I would seek something here. Jodlowiec is like a "league one" (yes in England) player comparing to Klaassen. He either kicks the ball blindly as far as he can when he gets it or turns his back at his opponent hoping to be fouled. Kopczynski will not create much either. If you are anyway doomed to defend yourself most of the time with all (?) men available then why not having some creativity on the pitch in case you conquer the ball? Hämäläinen (for example) both thinks and plays faster then Jodlowiec not to mention his technique which is also better.
Each game has it´s own history and outcome. To compare Borussia Dortmund and Ajax is like to compare Audi A8 and VW Passat speaking with VAG terms
. Borussia is clearly better. Legia would be Skoda Octavia here.
I know Legia is having certain (limited) quality and Ajax sits on the triumph. Defending seems like the most reasonable thing to do but if you don´t risk you don´t earn...
I will be the first to congratulate you and Teo if Legia goes through which is also my wish.
