I understand looking at the positives if you lose but willingly wanting your side to lose is mad for me. It's not just you tornando, some of my friends irl want Arsenal to lose for Arteta to get sacked, it's a common thing.
What's the difference between doing that, and offering Salah the same bonus and wage? And what's to stop players internally then asking for the same bonus when re-signing. Doesn't that just make your wage structure redundant. He won't reply as he can't see so if any other Liverpool fans have an opinion. I'd have thought…
He knows Saka is there, you'll have enough vision around you to see that. Combine that with him putting in some very cynical fouls already before that in the game, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he did it on purpose instead of backing out of the tackle. But, I can see why it was just a yellow.
Well by now he should know 433 and Lokonga aren't options. So: Elneny AMN Patino or 3atb. I'm not seeing what AMN will do that Lokonga doesn't so for me that's a no. I think 3atb works against other 3atb sides but that's a no for me longer term. So sadly it's Elneny. Or.. we risk Patino or play White/Chambers there.
Ramsdale Tomiyasu - White - Gabriel AMN - Partey - Odegaard - Tavares Pepe - Laca - Auba Is how I'd like up vs Villa considering they use the same formation. As Chelsea and Brighton proved, we can't play against 5atb sides with our normal shape. We need to match it. Wouldn't be opposed to either ESR or Martinelli starting.
Lokonga was quite good in the first 3 or 4 games, saw quite a lot there. But after that he's looked average. Same story for Odegaard tbh, looked decent first few games he played but vs Brighton and today, terrible. Scared is the right word.
Anyway, poor in general that. I liked Ramsdale, White, Auba and Pepe to a degree but the rest were relatively poor. Laca and Martinelli made an impact. I'd very much consider playing Tavares over Tierney. Tierney is lacking energy massively atm. Need to solve this midfield issue too.
