All these analogies about houses and cars make me laugh, in its simplest form the system Jürgen preferred had run its course and the legs used to make it happen no longer had the stamina nor the strength for it to continue, we can all point to reasons why and there are many, but i can’t see the point in looking backwards so we look forward,
I normal season beginning it usually takes a good half dozen games to get up to speed if you will, with new signings integrated into said system,
The advantage we’ve had this season is there’s been a slight tweak to the tried and trusted system and the new and fresh legs have hit the ground running,
Macca was already familiar with a similar system used by De Zerbi at the Amex, and Szlobos is such a talented player transition was easy and in fact he will thrive in a system suited to his skill set, Endo has the ability to play any system and will adapt with relative ease, we have yet to see the Grav but again he has the legs and ability to thrive in Klopp’s in yer face attacking units,
Add Jones who is blossoming into a very good AM, Harvey improving daily and is quite adept at linking up play or dropping back fill in holes,
It is still early days, but what we have seen is quite a turnaround as to what we were last season, chalk N cheese in all honesty, and yet, we’re still in our infancy with this Squad and the newish system, I’m loving how we are all chomping at the bit in anticipation as to what kind of side we will develop into……IMAGINE BEING US !!!
