Agreed. Trent was never a great defender, but things have gotten worse since he has moved further inside. I don’t get that at all.
I get trying...
Maybe, but he has been our best player by a distance
Hell of an assist by Salah
But, we have been no where near full throttle. No press in the midfield and so many give always is what is leaving us so exposed.
Can see why we like Calceido - he is dominating the midfield.
When do we play Bournemouth again?
The optimistic side says this makes sense. A simple loan to fill a needed gap until we get the “right” player(s). If Luiz, or others, are not the...
Nunez will help draw more attention from CBs, but I think giving Mo some time in the middle would have same impact it had on Mané.
Not where we...
Worked for Mané!
I think Caicedo is a good player and would do fine. Replaces Ox immediately and Milner next year. Still leaving room for Bellingham to replace Hendo?
I like the Neves rumor. He replaces/rotates Thiago and he is still young, but with loads of experience.
Bellingham comes in replaces Hendo. And,...
Elliott was playing a Coutinho role. Nominally on the right and did nice work there with Salah and Trent, but also popped up left and center and...
Agreed! Terrible value for money
Has to be Firmino, but Elliott a close second, even only playing a half.
Nice to see Fabinho playing a decent game.
Sell him! Or he is a really good decoy
That give go with TAA through the midfield was very Gerrard-like.
And Elliott floating like a right sided Coutinho
Seems like Gomez would like to stay in the team.
Some senior players playing like their places are at risk - nice
Is he even tall enough to be a holding midfielder?
Will be fun to see Darwin and less fun to see Haaland play him.
Executed with skillful perfection. The one touch assist and finish were superb.
