Fabinho is the key. Problem is he picks up injuries quite often as well.
Numbers wise we are still ok and again a bit like last season have been struck with multiple injuries in one area at the same time.
Chamberlain for me has probably run his course here and any hope I had he could rekindle some form for us has gone.
Once we get Fab and Thiago back we'll be in a lot stronger position though.
The wise one has spoken...well said Si...all this talk of reverting back to square pegs in round holes, c'mon lads really?
We can't have Robbo or Trent pushed up, we can't have Gomez as a makeshift RB, same as we won't see Joe as DM as I alluded to once recently, me hypocritical, maybe?
But look at where we're at and the opposition we have faced whilst our main engine is having a refit, second only three behind Chavs, yes it could have better, yes we have given away 2 goal leads, and of course we will be better going forward,
Carrying, is perhaps too strong a word FOAR used in his post but let's be honest, Alex is on borrowed time, Curtis is remember still learning his trade and wee Harvey is a year behind him...
Hendo, Fabinho and Thiago is our strongest trio imo, we are better balanced, more solid and have creativity, you'll be happy with that trio V City or Chavs, but against your bus parkers and the like chuck wee Harvey in rather than Thiago and let him link up with Mo ahead or Trent running into channels and watch that trifecta create absolute havoc , similar on the left putting Keita link with Mane & Robbo, of course we all need them fit enough to play, we've once again simply been unlucky with the timing of the tge injuries and to whom,
But we are coming through it, Thiago back training Fabinho probably a week behind him and we all hope of course Harvey comes back in ready for the run in,
We're second 3 behind but we're yet to reach our peak, We're operating in 3rd/4th gear , give some thought to our current state, CL Knock out imminent and totally in the title race, and scoring lots of goals from all over not just the three amigo's, is that fella Lukaku remember him, is his consistently on a par with Mo ? and you can the same about any other forward in Europe,
I'm rambling now fairy muff, but we're miles off square pegs in round holes, unless you were all alluding to MUtants, in which case please accept my humblest appologgies!!
