Echo: "Gareth Barry is also said to be carrying an ankle problem but does take his place in the starting line-up alongside Idrissa Gueye."
They've all been shit so why single Barkley out?
Agree with @Bluedylan with Bolasie, yes he has been awful with the ball and his decisions terrible. But he is making sure he is involved, he is annoying people because people are getting to see him do things wrong as he is looking for the ball and trying to do something. Mirallas as he often can be has been invisible, drifting through the game not looking to do anything. That for me is worse than making poor decisions or getting what you are trying to do wrong.Koeman can instruct Bolasie to do different things, tell him to play with same hunger to get on the ball but do something simpler, or look for a pass etc. Its much harder to get someone playing with fire when they lack that consistent mindset like Mirallas does.
Just not factually accurate.
We didnt solve the problem in the window that all our attacking players apart from Lennon are complete individual players. Their first thought is what can i do, can i score a goal, can i beat a man. Those players are fine, you need them but we signed Bolasie who is another one of them and didnt get anyone of a different mould to get us a different option of balance.So when we have individuals who have awful games like they all did today, we are going to be very poor.
Sorry but I disagree we have been lucky and we are shite at the moment
OK...well let's put it in to perspective...my perspective at least:)We all expect this to be a rebuild year with a finish of anywhere from 6 to 10 being a success...our second place standing was deceptive and flattering...we are going to lose games...today we deservedly lost based on our first half performance...even then we had three great chances and missed all of them...one of those days...Oviedo- not EPL level, Del- totally luxury. Bolasie- frustrating as hell BUT WORKED ALL GAME and still provided the brilliant cross at the end...Ross....it's now or never for him BUT not really a no.10. So sad day, lots of work to be done but I still trust the direction we are going in.
Completely missed this game and by the sounds of it perhaps that was somewhat fortuitous.It couldn't have been that bad could it?I can't help but think teams feel if they can score early against us we struggle to assert ourselves.
