I just don't think this squad is as good as we think it is. Struggling to see what changes he could make to make much difference here. Hate to say it.

Rooney isn't in the squad

That certainly makes the choice easier.

Surely Luke Garbutt would be a better option at left back than Martina?
Surely Sagna would be a better right back that Martina, isn't he still free?

Klaassen isn't concerned with getting on the ball. His game is all about off-the-ball movement and creating space, either for himself or for his teammates (see Rooney's goal against Stoke for a prime example). There's a time and place for that but unfortunately, it's not tonight.

Missed opportunity not starting Sigurdsson, especially since his best performance for us came in the second half against Limassol where he played more of a central box-to-box role. Tough choice between Rooney/Sigurdsson to replace Klaassen in the second half.

Rooney isn't even on the bench.

We do know that Schneiderlin can be very good and he hasn't been bad tonight actually.

Klaassen I am worried, maybe Koeman is right and it might take him a year to get up to speed. Really wanted it to work but he strikes me as the kind of AM that fits like a cog into a team playing well but isn't able to affect a team playing poorly.

Sold to Celtic in 6 months for a couple of mill; where he'll become a legend. Watch out Ross County!

My grandmother would be a better option than Martina, and she's been dead for 15 years.

Exactly. I think Koeman has insisted on a lot of the first team players and they arent good enough
either way you put it the result is the same, Walsh hasn't done his job

In fairness never again put Holgate in the hell of playing fullback. I am not sure what he is, but it is not a full back.

Yeah I don't know what we should do really. Maybe 4-4-2 because Calvert-Lewin is like playing with 10 men at the moment. The problem is a 3 bank system would get torn apart but this Lyon team. They're too good in midfield especially.

Neither shit nor worldbeaters. Both very good young players.

Are they? Neither look ready for top flight football. Theres plenty younger who are. Ive no real clue how you judge potential but in terms of performances now they arent good even for youngsters. Im not overly convinced DCL will even be a premier league player long term

You mean as good as we were being told it is. It's obvious the squad has been short from day one.
