      Carelessly put in two goals in two back to back games. Hopelessly secured the points for us. Ali is hopeless too. Hasn’t scored that many.

      I maintain that althoughThiago was very good against Porto and scored against Southamptom, I believe he is too careless at times. Against Southamptom he lost possession uselessly at put the defense in danger.

      Our weakness is midfield, not the individual players who are all very good. But the equilibrium is not there yet. We're still finding the best trio.

      Agree agree. Please name us a player who wouldn’t lose possession at all. Has never lost possession and never will. We should scout for such a player.

      I’ve never been wrong in all me posts. Never had and will never be.

      Perfect example of conformation bias here

      You have something in your mind and are looking for anything to support it

      Sorry if you can’t see how good a player Thiago is I’d question your football knowledge

      Think what you want. He was quite good yesterday but it's clear that he lost the ball carelessly yesterday. If it was not for Alisson, we would have lost this clean sheet.

      And if it wasn’t for their keeper we would have scored eight after a member of Saints midfield gave away possession.
      Get in the real world. It happens to everyone and every team !
      It’s how you or your team mates deal with it is the issue, and Tiago and his team mates dealt with it pretty bloody well I’d say.
      In addition to that, played exceptionally well.

      Could say the same about Konate, a couple of mistakes yesterday could of cost us except for Alisson bailing him out of sh*t.

      The midfield's fine, crying about anything from yesterday's game makes you sound a tit in all honest. We cut them apart and they caused us very little problems, the ones you suggest were easily covered by teamates proving we're moving in the right direction.

      Sh*te comments have their point after all… players shouldn’t lose possession or allow a shot at our goal. We shouldn’t be conceding anything at all, in a perfect world.

      Funny how when ali makes a save its someone elses fault, when chelseas goalie makes save thats what hes paid for and hes best in the world. ;D

      If Henderson, Thiago and Fabinho are all fit, they are playing very well together with very good mixture of qualities: energy, leadership, passing, vision, experience and creativity.

      Only Keita can challenge them if he's fully fit. Elliott can challenge as well but Hendo, Thiago and Fab are very good balance.

      I'm happy with our midfield if all are fit.

      If all three continue with what was served up at Goodison, no need to change.
      Get the games won, then rest an alternate one of the three each game. Keep the core strength for as long as possible.

      Put Kovacic and Kante in our midfield and we would have destroyed Chelsea today, and the league race would not have finished so early.

      The lack of hard running midfielders with technical ability has been something that we somehow papered over for a while with the likes of Gini with his football brain, all the more obvious now.

      Thiago missed but we can’t rely on him he’s only played 50% of the games wherever he has been

      Without Thiago our midfield has looked poor far too often now.

      Needs freshening up big time in the summer.

      I'm pretty sure Kante plays 2 brilliant games a year. Both against us!!! FFS Naby should have been on from the off. They would have cancelled each other out.

      That dude is the real deal. His volley was perfect, unfortunately. I'd give a nut to sign him.

      Need to tap up Connor Gallgher. Chelsea are going to have to sell him soon. He's bossing the prem. Palace are lost when he isn't there.

      Dallas from Leeds and Bissoma from BHA are great too. All these dudes would be dope along with Fab and Kessie (he's coming to us) or Thiago (when he plays). All are proven in England and haven't peaked yet.

      Volley was perfect but for fucks sake, first off James gives a stupid Free Kick away that was totally unnecessary and when they were lining up the FK, I saw that Kovacic just standing there by himself and was thinking shouldn't Moe be covering him? Moe wasn't even in the f**king picture. Think he was up on the half way line out of the picture. Fucks sake and of course that c**t hits it like that, bet he never hits one like that in his career again!! C**t

      Momentum over!!!

      All things considered, it was a flawless strike. Backing off the way he did, he had to hit LITERALLY PERFECT. His technique was boss. Just wish it would've came on international duty 😄

      Damn good player though.

      It’s like these lads are scared to put their foot on the ball look up pick a pass and take on a man. Hendo is infuriating with his 1 or 2 touch options constantly.

      Good thing everyone on here last year clamoring for him to get a big extension got what they wanted. Now he's locked in for another 3 seasons.

      Dallas ? not for me, he’s not better than we have already, if your going to raid Leeds, I’d be going after Raphinha, he’s quality and with Jürgen’s input would make him even better,
      Bissouma maybe, he ticks all the right boxes, but I’d rather we go all out for John Mcginn at Villa, his energy and work rate is right up Klopp’s Strasse, another I would implore we go after is Billy Gilmour, what a player, this kid is way ahead of his time, his vision, low centre of gravity, balance, passing ability is frightening, he’s got world class written all over him, like Virgil, like Alisson, the finances needed to land him will be peanuts in the long term, right so now we have our mids sorted shall we discuss Haaland and how we land him too ?

      Wouldn't say there's anything controversial about Rice!  Incredible player at a young age. Imagine that he wouldn't come cheap but if you look at the signing from an investment point of view there's a chance he could give us 10 years at a very high level. English too which means he'd count towards our homegrown quota
