I will never forget that time earlier this season when Contento was attacking, the ball was going out and he somehow managed to keep it in. That run was incredible, and I think it led to a goal. I forgot against who it was though.
I will never understand why LVG insisted on playing Pranjic. Contento, apart from clearly being a better LB, was the reason why we didn't sign a fullback this summer in the first place... if he had played the full season, well, maybe we wouldn't have a LB problem anymore, because Contento has potential. But now, he's played very few games this season... sticking with him will be a risk. We just have to buy a proven fullback this summer. I don't want to lose Contento though, but if we are going to go after Coentrao, Contento will never have his chance at Bayern. If he does, somehow, become better than Coentrao, then we would have wasted all that money on Coentrao for nothing, so it's lose/lose.
Maybe it's time to start looking at Maxwell? I say it depends on Contento in the last 4 games of the season. Bringing Maxwell for 2-3 years, and loaning Contento... that could work. I think this is what appudds suggested last year.
