Forget the title, it’s gone, bridesmaids is the target now, and without doubt achievable, let’s look at the bigger picture here....
We have Naby, back from injury, imminent, Fabinho not far away & Jota a couple of weeks yet, just having those three alone will make all the difference, Hendo will stay with Kabak for now, but Naby in midfield will give us more attacking options, I can’t for the life of understanding why Jürgen doesn’t play Phillips with Kabak with Hendo sat in front ?
Anyhoo, it is what it is, we could really do with Fabinho back, that would solve a few issues in itself, but going forward from here considering, it doesn’t look too bad, with those three returning & with the new CB’s we will will have our Midfield back and with it our confidence,
We are in the Q finals of the CL(well almost) and we are getting stronger and more confident and more like ourselves and are harder to beat, with all of the above about to happen, who would bet against us achieving 2nd, reaching the CL final, and who would bet against us winning it having got there, we are approaching the pivotal point in the season and we’re approaching it in a much better shape than we have been last couple of months,
If you remember, the first few weeks without Virgil & then without Joe, we coped admirably with Matip & Fabinho, we were still top of the league, we were still us, it was only when Fab got injured and then Matip that our tits went north, when we get Fabinho back even if he plays CB, will be massive for us, yes we’ll still miss Virgil and we’ll still miss Joe, but we’ve been there before and coped well, I’m confident that our season will turn out ok, not what we all wanted but finishing as Bridesmaids & the No 7 being fixed to Trophy wall won’t be too bad will it ?
