The two holding midfielders are doing Koeman absolutely no favours either. How 2 clearly high class players can be deployed in holding midfield roles and allow the opposition to casually stroll into our box and have a free shot on goal is beyond me.
It's a travesty that we didn't sign another centre half when it was clear Funes wasn't going to be fit. Ashley Williams is diabolical at the best of times but it looks like his legs have completely gone now.
I'm pretty sure Koeman hasn't told Schneiderlin to become a coward and shy away from the ball, only to pass it simply sideways and backwards when he gets it. Yesterday there were plenty of opportunities for him to move to make space for the player on the ball, be bold, think offensively and spot a gap. He just stands there, thinking his role is to sit in a 15 yard radius in front of Williams and Keane and do nothing constructive.
We've turned into a team full of pussies, with no-one apart from Rooney looking like they want to take any responsibility. Rooney's problem is he takes too much, whereas Koeman should be telling him to stay up top so we maintain some sort of shape.
It's all just a bit of a mess really.
