If we still suck in January and we are pretty much nailed on to go down (lets be honest, its a possibility), would you sell in the transfer window to get top coin, or would you hold and take the risk of losing on the cheap?
Apologies for bringing up an ex-player again (yes, fck him)
But for me, this is our biggest problem. Lets be honest, he was a leader on and off the pitch and in reality was the only screamer/shouter we had. NONE of our remaining players are like this - theyre all quiet little followers rather than a leader. Yes it was a good price, but are we now paying for that on the pitch with lower standards and lack of effort? For me we are..
FG is nicey nicey and there isnt anyone else (playing staff or back office) who is willing to say it as it is as far as im aware.
Personally was concerned when he left for this very reason and that there would be no hard edge about us, and that certainly seems the way. In other words, we have no backbone.
Im watching the re-run of this game and im wondering who this guy at left back is? It certainly isnt the player who plays for us. I mean this guy gets forward, chucks in decent crosses and looks mildly creative.
Ok Garth, so you stick Gomis in your team of the week, but then you say...
"without the appalling decision by referee Andre Marriner to send Hull City's David Meyler off for what appears to be a run-of-the-mill tackle, the outcome for Bafetimbi Gomis and for Swansea City might have been very different."
Appalling decision? Are you fcking nuts? Did you see it from the angle of the ref Garth? Dick.
Think we have played five games with it, won three, lost 2 and havent been outclassed in either of those.
We have looked solid on the whole but also as though we are unlikely to be prolific using it. It seems we control games better using the system, much like we used to, but at the expense of that flair and wing play.
Are the wingers poorly performing due to the system and coaching? Or is the form of the wingers a response by the coaches to look for alternatives?
This shape didnt really work for Rodgers and he changed it up. Is it something we should continue with or would you rather revert back to type with one of our previous incarnations?
Ok. So im watching Independence Day and its got me thinking. If something like this were to happen, and some aliens were to pop their ugly mugs in to Earth so we knew they existed, what do you think the religious folk amongst us would do? What would they say? What would they believe?
Would God have created them? Would all religions go in to meltdown? Would chaos ensue?
Something all of our recent coaches have struggled with when teams figure out that by pressing us high closes down our game and forces us to make mistakes.
For the first half an hour today, we were finding that little straight ball out from the back and between their midfielders - and it was cutting them wide open every time. They closed down the space so we stopped trying it.
Wouldve been nice to have more than one option when doing that as its very effective when we do it properly
