What I have noticed is whenever a defeat its always if he was here or he was here we would of won . This week its Darwin and how he would have been the difference when only 1 or 2 games before he was Andy Caroll or couldn't trap a bag of cement to some posters on here
Just @ me next time pal. I’ll explain it for you so maybe you can understand.
Different players offer different strengths in different games. Most people who have played football or even just watched it for a while will understand that.
I’ll now give you an example. I’ve never been a huge admirer of Jordan Henderson. For 80% of our games he wouldn’t get in our starting 11 if it was me picking the team. However, there are certain fixtures that bizarrely he would be first name on my team sheet. Would I want Jordan Henderson starting at home against Brentford? No. Would I want Jordan Henderson starting away to Manchester City? Yes. The reason being for the Brentford fixture we need players good in possession who are creative, something Jordan Henderson isn’t particularly strong in. And for the City fixture we need people who are going to run their socks off and stay professional and disciplined, something he is very strong at. Do you follow?
Yesterday, Mo and Bobby got marked out the game by their two physical centre halves who bullied them all afternoon. I believe, and I even used these exact words, ‘as clumsy as he is’, Darwin would have made a difference. He’s flying with confidence and his physical strengths would have been an asset in a game like that. It would have also freed Mo up which could have been vital too.
Thought this was just basic common sense in the football world but hopefully you understand a bit better now mate.
