Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
You have nothing sensible to say on this topic, Donuel, so you know the advice.
Liverpool's front three are looking blunt. Unfortunately, because we've lost Matip, Virgil and Joe Gomez, we've had to push our key midfielders, Hendo and Fab, into more defensive roles. Trent and Robbo can no longer be as adventurous with their runs and crosses from the flanks. The front three are off-key anyway, but they are also being starved of the inspired supply from midfield and those flanks. We need Thiago to stay fit and bed in quickly. United's alleged key three front men, Marcus, Martial and Bruno, were all extremely unimpressive yesterday. A decent defence can handle the opposition's bus-parking and hopeful occasional counter-attacks, and there was a lot of bus-parking going on. Not a great game, was it?
