If you listened to Jürgen in his pre-match interview he said both Bacjetic and Thiago were close but not close enough, from his explanation of the Chav game he said mistakes made were due to us having not played enough games, he didn’t specifically point out that those mistakes were defensive errors but in fact from further upfield and mainly because of the inexperience,
He did say though that such issues will improve with time, and are to be expected this early in the season, makes sense obviously, and once we have played 5/6 games we’ll see a much more in tune team,
For Bournemouth Endo comes straight in for me, Macca in his favoured role and Trent at rwb, but with licence to roam, think Jota picked up a knock so we’ll see either Nunez or Cody up top with Mo & Lucho…….
Trent Konate Virgil Robbo
Salah Nunez Diaz
With Endo in covering for Trent I can see us in time becoming a very very dangerous team, capable of taking on and beating anyone, a few games under our belts with this line up with rhythm, confidence and familiarity we’re gonna be rocking n rolling,
With Trent moving forward we’ll become a back three with Endo sat in as DM covering, Trent joins Macca & Szlobo pinging passes and crosses into the paths of Mo, Nunez & Lucho, if the thought of that attack doesn’t excite you then you are indeed f***in dead !!
In time, we’ll have quality back up with, Gakpo, Doak, Jota, Bacjetic, Elliot, Jones, Matip, etc etc, might yet see another addition in midfield but I’d rather we add another CB, Endo can do both but he’s not f***in superman,
Pundits will tell us it’s a straight-ish race between Pep & Arteta, but most of them have attention spans of goldfish and dismiss the fact that Jürgen Klopp is still here and he builds fantastic exciting football teams, we have Wee Eddy Howe building his own empire up there in never never land and like us are a developing exciting side and will be a concern for most, including us, anyhoo….
Let’s just concentrate on us, and what we do, take one game at a time, and see where it takes us, at the moment we look a bit hit and miss, but after one league game, away at them horrible cnuts, we come away with a draw, will not be a bad result at all going forward, everyone else will of course improve too, but they don’t have the genius of a Jürgen Klopp do they??
