I don’t think we need to panic, we are so used to playing so well and machine like, but I can remember times where consistency was a problem, and form was on a wing and a prayer at times, like Brian alluded too above there were seasons where we had bad office days aplenty,
We are not that well oiled machine of last season, we’re missing 50% of our usual back line for a start, Virgil & Gomez, we’re missing a 50% of our usual midfield because our DM is playing as a cb and Henderson is filling in as a the DM, that’s four positions arguably a third of our spine either missing or effected by forced changes, the three amigos have been mis-firing especially Bobby who’s been well off the boil until recently, Mo hasn’t been as prolific and even Mane has had bad days, and of course Ali has been out injured too,
Now add other injuries suffered, Trent, Milner, Keita, Matip, Chambo, and this season in particular, Thiago & Jota, and you can add fatigue into the equation as well, too many games in such a short period of time will wear players down, even the most fittest of athletes, the same for any EPL club, it’s no coincidence that others are suffering bad office days too,
So there’s no question our whole squad has been effected at some point, is it any wonder then that form has been somewhat erratic at best, from disaster at Villa to the elation V Palace and everything in between, so hold onto your Cocks & Clit’s ppl there’s lots to happen yet in this craziest of seasons,
We have Thiago back now, and once he’s match fit we will see a huge difference in form, by then, Chambo will have had more game time, Milner too, Jota won’t be far away from returning either, we can surround Matip & Naby in bubble wrap and hope they don’t get crocked again(miracles do happen yanno’s), and in time we might even see Virgil & Joe back in training at least,
We just need to get through this Xmas madness and things will start to settle down, if COVID allows it, that’s all we can hope for really, we’re still top of the league and we’re still the team to beat.
WE GO AGAIN, Believe !
