Not sure, they're introducing too many youngsters too early. They have no goal scorer and are unstable at board level. No chance a team can gain any consistency when sacking the manager every 4 months.
Pure class, if that's in the Championship you probably don't get punished, just shows how you cant afford to make a mistake in the Premier League. Ozil and Sanchez are flying, ominous for the rest of the league.
Credit to them, I initially thought they signed a load of players without really knowing where to fit them in. They' much more settled now and look a force. I quite like Derby for some reason, not really sure why.
However I would say the £10m spent on Johnson and Butterfield just before the closing of the transfer window saved their skin somewhat.
Not the most interesting person to listen to, then again, there aren't many commentators that are really. I quite enjoy listening to Danny Higginbotham's punditry, wouldn't mind seeing him commentating on BT.
I'm sure Szmodics (spelling? sorry Sammy, one of us are probably right), is on loan at Braintree. Macauley Bonne seems to be the one there, scored in the league and got 4 in the cup against Wealdstone.
I think they would be top half if their chairmen hired a manager with experience, Both Joe Dunne and Tony Humes were cheap options.
Its weird though how they can press so aggressively, Is it about the fitness and physique of a player or can anyone press like that? Firmino, Lallana and Coutinho never struck me as players who would run through a brick wall for you but they all pressed brilliantly.
Some of Liverpools link up play has been outstanding, Pelligrini is too blame for this. Fernando and Toure are too slow and are leaving spaces behind them for which Liverpool silky frontmen are exploiting. Starting Fernandinho would have made more sense.
Also Demichellis is likewise too slow, Otamendi has been in good form and surely would have been a better option for this game. Pellegrini must have thought he could win without them and instead save them for the Juve game, glad he's getting his comeuppance.
Speroni's a better keeper than both but i've given up on our goalkeeping situation. I prefer Bialkowski to Gerken still but its clear Mick prefers Gerken in goal for us so what's the point in going on about it? Besides I'm not sure an ageing keeper joining us on loan is going to give the other 2 much belief.
