      Quite a few have judged Gakpo. Does look a bit..ordinary, tame..but the rest have been poor as well. Scoring 1 in 3 for PSV but Dutch football isn't as intense as the Prem. But he still needs to add a bit of urgency to his game, it's just that..he looks..er..like a gentleman.

      Doesn't look as if he's desperate to influence the game. May be the Boss should pull him to one side and say to him..."Look kid get out there and get yer feckin' finger out...this is NOT a game of cricket....FFS.."

      its hard to come into a team playing without confidence he looks a player so does Nunez in our 2018-2022 team I am sure they would look different. Good game tomorrow to make a name for yourself

      For the Derby I'd go:

      Ali
      Trent
      Matip
      Phillips (but most likely Gomez)
      Robertson
      Henderson
      Fabinho
      Bajcetic
      Elliott
      Salah
      Nunez

      He has shown nothing that he is a elite level midfielder, fine if he stays around as a squad player but he won’t be a starter next season assuming the club are serious about being contenders!

      Why does he need to be an “elite level midfielder” 🤷‍♂️


      What sort of level is that these days and does every team that challenge have an elite level at every position

      Well yes I give him the benefit..but he just looks so tame. No doubt our sh*ite form has affected him, Darwin as well. Mo being off blob as well. May be the Derby game has come at the right time. Just hope it's a battle. Need a few decent Derby like tackles flying about..get the blood pumping.

      I dont usually bother with the Prediction league but have gone for 5-1 tomorrow A because they are still sh*te and B our luck just has to change.
      As much as I have tried to defend Joe Gomez he is a liability at CB as most are unless Virgil is playing. Got to have Hendo and Fab in a Derby too now is the time to show who they are.

      Still a shock when you see the league table. Absolute pitiful effort from us this campaign, I don't care what mitigating factors are offered there's no way we should be this far behind. Tomorrow night is a must win for me.

      Semi confident because we are playing at home where we are still half decent.

      Due to the way Neverton will start, with the new manager bounce, we need to move the ball fast and accurate. Have them chasing shadows, and play through them.
      Early goal will slow their eagerness, and we can gradually build on that. 2:0 to the Red men !

                 Ally
      TAA Matip Philips Robbo
       Milner Hendo Bajcetic
        Mo Gapko Elliot

      Know this won't be the team but is probably what I'd play.

      If we win the next two games, we will be back in the race for top 4. We definitely need to win these 2 games to build some momentum going into the Madrid game.

      Please win. And, please score a goal (I hardly remember the last time we scored a goal in the league!).

      Brooks has been dropped as VAR ref, after the Crystal Palace debacle. Andre Marriner takes his place.

      Ali, Trent, Matip,Gomez,Robbo,Hendo,Fabinho,Milner,Mo,Darwin,Gakpo.

      2-0.
