      He is at the point of his career, as someone earlier said, that he has to fight through the little knocks and twinges.

      I love watching him play when he is fit.  He’s a joy to watch. 

      I like him as an impact sub.  I also think he would help against the bus parkers .

      I just hope for one season where he can play through some pain, give 100% to the team, because I think if he can then this could be our year.

      Bit hash to go judging Sturridge, playing at Wembley and all that, plus he's a very different player to our front three, he doesn't go pressing as much as the main front free.

      Just totally shocked by that perception.

      Hardly had minutes since the pre-season, and yet what we have seen of him has been good. vs Tottenham was no different. Held up play and good game management when given the chance, but hardly had a touch of the ball. Not his fault.

      I agree he's been ok the times he's played but he could have done better at blocking Lamella's shot, turning your back like he did is not good enough.

      Agreed,it pisses me off when I see one of our players turn his arse into the ball to block it but I'm not singling Danny out as I've seen plenty of players do it,I imagine it must be better to get a whack in the arse than a whack in the sack. :lmao:

      He came on for Bobby and you'd expect him to at least press their central defenders some bit but he didn't. I understand its not his game but surely it was instructed to him.

      Would rather Shaqiri through the middle tbh as first sub in that situation because at least he will chase and disrupt.

      Very harsh and entirely undeserved.
      He came on and no doubt received a word in the ear as to his attitude and application in the remainder of a scrappy game where the priority was retaining a one goal advantage.

      If Studge took it upon himself to teararse about leaving gaps that may have lead to an equaliser Jürgen would be not to pleases .
      Undeserved criticism as you point out.

      Sturridge has high returns per minute. He is doing his job as an impact sub. We'll need him longer tomorrow though.

      I think the point of Studge coming on was that he tends to play on the shoulder of the last defender, which naturally makes them drop a bit deeper, and which then causes a bit of a disconnect between defense and midfield, which in turn makes it easier for us to press and more difficult for them to build pressure.

      Put another way, if their lines are less compact and more spaced out, they have less chance to score because it's easier to defend against them.

      Should’ve done better for the goal on Saturday but hard to criticise him in open play so far.

      Overall we’re yet to see evidence of the strength of the squad in the final 3rd.

      Thought he did well and hard to judge when he's getting spare minutes most days. As mentioned, he held the ball up well and used his experience to draw some free kicks and tick seconds off the clock. Could have had a goal if not for Mane's selfishness so i think he has done well when he has come on.

      I won't judge him since it didn't cost us. That is my reasoning in football. I may be wrong but that is my God.

      If you review the goal again you could argue that VVD was the closest to Lamela and could have blocked the shot had he closed him down instead of stopping

      He does not get much chance these days, to be fair. Although still quite capable of putting the ball into the back of the net.

      Leaving gaps by running around when hes the furthest player up the pitch;  not sure what your smoking mate.
      He hasn't exactly covered himself in glory, when consistently cant be arsed to break into a sweat.  He looked to have a spring back in his step during preseason, however seems to have lost a yard again when given real opportunities.

      Agree, but at the same time, he isn’t put in that situation if Gomez doesn’t miss what should have been a straight forward header.

      What are the real opportunities he’s been given since pre season?

      Vs West Ham - came on in the 87th minute and scored in the 88th.

      Vs Palace - came on in the 94th minute.

      Vs Brighton - came on in the 80th minute and held the ball up well.

      Vs Leicester - unused sub

      Vs Spurs - on in the 83rd minute and again held the ball up well and won a number of free kicks as a result.

      Seems like you are trying to slate him for the sake of it, to fit the narrative of last season. So far he’s had very limited game time but done everything that appears to have been asked of him.

      You're smoking better gear than me.
      As stated in a scrappy game when adhering to strict positional game set would be as much use as a chocolate hammer, to retain a precious advantage possession and spatial awareness are essential.
      That might further contribute to the "scrappy game" description but the win is the priority.

      The better quality ganga you have is no doubt responsible for confusing Sturridge and his improved form in previous games with some other player.

      I know it's been said, but I disagree.

      I only saw two other chances - and as far as I have heard, these are the same two cited by many.

      1) He had poor control over the ball that came in and as such had to react and run at the loose ball with the keeper coming to collect. His control was indeed poor - but this happens from time to time to players all over the pitch. That aside, he reacted quickly and crucially got to the ball before the keeper. Salah then popped it into the net. As far as I'm concerned, that goal should have stood. His follow through got the keeper, but the ball is there to be won, it's a goal scoring opportunity, and we've seen them allowed time and time again.

      2) A header. Unlike the first where he threw himself in there at the crucial moment with a great header, this one was a struggle. The ball was actually behind him so he had to adjust his movement, and was unable to get enough on the ball to direct it with power. That was due to there not being enough on the cross. It was not a clear goal scoring opportunity as some have claimed.

      That aside, I thought his performance was impressive. Some suggested I was looking for excuses, but I said it before the game that Sturridge will find it more difficult to operate with Mane and Salah given his lack of game time with these two. I was however spot on.

      It is a fact that Sturridge plays a very different game to Firmino. Mane and Salah are not used to playing with Sturridge. They are used to the Firmino-player. Tonight you could see that the movement from Sturridge was not getting picked up by the other two, and he was struggling to get into the game at the start. There was also a late opportunity where he attempted to bend it from the edge of the box and it went well wide. Salah and Mane looked mad at him. Don't they know that is his game? He usually tries several of those shots before he gets it right.

      Great 1st header for his goal, really should have had 2 but the other one bounced off his shoulder.

      Can't believe that was his first ever Champs League start for us.
