I know it was disallowed, but does Stekelenburg ever save anything? I can't recall him getting even close to one in pre-season.

Don't undersell how bad this midfield is.

Schneiderlin is a decent but safe passer who doesn't show for the ball enough and no longer offers anything defensively.

Sigurdsson runs a lot and is dangerous on the off chance that the ball falls to him in a great position but he is seriously uninvolved. Tosun does more in the build-up phase than he does.

Gana is good at pressuring the ball wherever he is but do we really want him receiving the ball in attacking situations?

Schneiderlin definitely needs to be dropped, Gana needs to sit deeper, and I'd seriously consider Sigurdsson's role in the team.

Couldnt agree more with this

I like Gueye but the other 2 dont do close to enough to enable us to get away with playing gueye whos abilities are totally defensive

I hope the big 18 year-old is ready to step up if Pickford gets injured/is sold

Baines looks done, doesn't he?

Wonder if we can get Robinson back from loan?

Keane, Morgan and Sigurdsson are 3 massive mistakes for massive money. If wed made 3 great signings instead of 3 shite 1s we'd have a very very good team

We should just forget about any more goals we concede now, we know the issue.

Just enjoy any attacking we do...

Richarlison is such a great little player. Control is superb. Very impressed with him so far,

We are gonna be like that Spurs side years ago who played 4-1-5. Looks like we'll see plenty of goals both ends this season

Gueye is underrated going forward, hes not massively creative but hes a good ball carrier

He's done well this game, but in general he's poor imo. Prefer him back deeper.
