Am I being harsh in saying I thought Hendo stuck out like a sore thumb in terms of how bad he was? Thought he was shocking. Giving the ball away cheaply in our own half, having no influence on the game at all and looked well off the standard we need. I saw a stat the other day how over the last 3 seasons he’s been available for a total 52% of the time. I’m not sure how he can be relied upon because he doesn’t play half the time, literally, and when he does play he looks far from captain material or at the standard we should be aiming for. When you look at the quality of the front 3, the midfield is a real concern. Can, Hendo and Gini can all be massively upgraded IMO.
More positively, Mo was just boss, 4 goals and 1 assist! Wow. 36 goals for the season already and 28 in the league. I remember back when we thought it was great how Torres got 33 and Suarez hit 31? Now we have a player who actually looks set to smash into the 40+ mark. The sad thing is, this kind of season would have won the Ballon d’or at one time, now it’s down to whoever goes the furthest in the Champions League or an International tournament out of Messi and Ronaldo.
Bobby was class as usual and Mane was very good again. Robbo is looking a real bargain and in general, it’s great that we bounced back from the Manc game in such good fashion, complete domination.
