Very impressive movement to score his goal today.
Nice to see him in the opposition penalty area in anticipation of something. That is something we have lacked, especially before Sturridge arrived.
Good goal, but even when he scores (something that is sadly rare), he's the worst of our front three.
A strange and somewhat pointless post mate. Not every player can be a Suarez; assuming, of course, you believe he's the "best" of our front three. If Luis is the "best" and Stewart is the "worst" does that make Coutinho second "best" or second "worst"? I'm guessing second "best".I mean; can I expect to read a post saying; "even when he set up two goals, he's the second worst of our front three." in the Coutinho player thread? I'm guessing no.Me? If I had to I'd go down the line of - "good"; "better"; "best"... it's less pointed, less snide and more supportive.
I was actually impressed and pleasantly surprised by the run he made for the goal. Cut in, got himself into the right position in the box, anticipated Coutinho would cross, and was there for the header. Intelligent bit of play there.
That's what I meant.
I was pleasently surprised he headed the ball in the first place without worrying about hurting his forehead.
I was also surprised he went for it, I mean he could have been killed.
It obviously sticks in the craw that Stewart has been picked on merit, playing well and contributing - f**k only knows why it should but there you have it.
After all; Isn't he now doing what we all wanted him to do?
I was glad he scored a goal for my team and helped them to a win... all you can ask really; isn't it? I know it would support some people's PoV more if he'd have missed and if he'd been playing sh*te of late but sadly neither are the case. It obviously sticks in the craw that Stewart has been picked on merit, playing well and contributing - f**k only knows why it should but there you have it.He may not be here this time next year but whilst he's still a Red and is still being picked surely it's better that he's playing well and contributing to a winning team? Surely if that remains the case, he, like all other players, should be given credit when due? After all; Isn't he now doing what we all wanted him to do?
Thought he was good overall today.Worked well, set up a chance our two in the first half, but in the second half he was very good. Whenever he had the ball, he did something constructive with it and anticipated and took his goal well. It was probably our most important goal too cos it gave us the belief that we could go on and get a result.
