Was scratching my head in amazement too. Think 12 months of Martyn Tyler has started rotting peoples brains.
Far more concerning was the performance of the 8 European Champions on the pitch. First half the front three couldn't trap a bag of cement and the midfield had their deckchairs out.
One hundred percent agree
The centre backs actually performed to their level which is average and their little errors they make every game was just taken advantage of in this game
What people need to ask was the midfield, full backs and forward line responsible for ensuring they were fully exposed ? The answer is absolutely yes, their team mates made it far more difficult for the cb who need to be protected
I will add our manager in that too, we went way too open in this type of game
As I said before, the only way we were getting a result was by keeping the ball and dominating the midfield which is why I was amazed at the line up...you had to Harry them and make them show their age but instead we did what we did
I felt so down today because what let us down were our main players so to speak not the lower tier premier league players we have at cb
Absolutely playing two natural cb is the way to go but we need to be solid in midfield and keep the pressure off them as much as possible and that’s what cost us yesterday
And I will also
Keep bringing it up, in what team do you see a player running down his contract being made captain...it doesn’t sit right with me and never will
I hope at home we go
Salah and jota up top
Almost a 4312
Use our four middle park players against their 3
