You are blaming Sakho for that? Im still blaming pitch.
What if it had been another player who was still at the club or who didn't leave in the way Sakho did?
I thought he was good too our best defender at the time. But I understand he was a bit marmite. But after he rubbed Jürgen the wrong way it was the end for me.
Think he just looked better than he was and we hyped him up to be better than he was because our defence was in such a mess back then, we were desperate for him to have that impact Virgil has. But looking back, on the whole he was pretty sh*t. Him and Lovren together were a complete disaster with zero communication. Think in their first game together they were falling over each other and getting in each other’s way.
Pitch has got f**k all to do with it. It was a hospital pass, but got forgotten in the hysteria over Stevie's slip.
