Hats off to the guys who spotted him
Renato also had brilliant character on all accounts. You should remember that you were also sure that he would make it (just to keep you straight and accountable).

yes, I did... and still believe that he is very talented. The prob with him was that he made the jump too quick. You may argue so did AD, however we have to keep in mind... being a winger v a cm is totally different IMO. The latter requires more experience to shine immediately.

True, but also replacing the best two wingers in Bayern history is a lot of pressure, not to mention Davies got thrown into the deep end in a position he wasn't used to.

not at all - if we keep on using a 4-3-3 or 3 - 4 -3 he won't be a waste.

I think LB/LWB might be his best position. He gets the most out of his speed, which he uses to recover and defend.

The only thing I care about Davies is that we define him what he is on the pitch; is he fullback/wingback or side midfielder/winger? Without that we can't plan the next season's squad nor his future.
The mess will keep flowing around the Säbener Straße.

The technical side to his game is improving ie dribbling and shooting but he is far from being great enough to be playing further up the pitch. Even Bale played as a fullback before eventually leveling up his game to play as a winger. At the moment Davies is good where he is since it gives him game time which will allow him to grow as a player.

I think the move to LB is actually one of the biggest contributors to his increase in form. His speed and explosiveness are his biggest assets, so making runs from deep give him more space when it comes to taking on defenders. Fullbacks tend to be given more space than wingers to work with and he enjoys that space to build speed and overtake defenders.

This is a nice detailed analysis of Fonzie's contribution to Bayern at LB. It's a little over-critical (but I am admittedly very biased when it comes to the young Canadian) but mostly on point.
