It is amazing how many people associate the absence of a player from the team to being "on the wrong side of Koeman". Is it not far more probable that the manager does not think they are good enough to pick, or their form was so bad they are no longer picked? We have two big disadvantages in relation to Koeman. He is a football coach and ex-player and is a far better judge of footballers than we are. He sees players at first hand whether in the first team or U23 or in training, and forms a judgement and we cannot form any judgement because we are not on the inside to make any. People who are frustrated at the terrible state we are now in, turn to unfounded inventions about the manager's player relations. We all have opinions based on what we see on the pitch, but we cannot judge on others who rarely or never get a game probably for a good reason.
