Still want Kenny in for Coleman.



The right side in general is weird. Should work really well but is very hit and miss. I think it's clear Coleman is rated by Silva though, Same goes for Walcott

We need to revamp the right hand side of the team over time.

When Gana drifts out to the right, and it ends up being a triangle of Coleman-Gana-Walcott, it looks fucking awful. Three players who play in straight lines, and have no subtlety to their game at all.

*coughs politely*

It’s clear we don’t have a premier league level alternative, yes.

Disappointed Lookman still isn’t starting over Walcott but I can sooooort of understand it.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Yeah, just think with Kenny you have more quality in the final 3rd without having too much of a drop in quality defensively.

Coleman was very lucky not to give away another penalty yesterday.

Then again, Kenny can throw in a shocker every now and then.
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

I think Coleman is off form which doesn't help and if he doesn't return to it there's a real issue there. Kenny will give a 6 out of. 10 every week but it's whether we want stability there or the possibility of a game winning performance which Coleman has in the tank.

Watching Lookman again yesterday he's great with the ball at his feet but his passing is often really poor so I can see why Walcott is the safer option.

Passing accuracy comes with games, Lookman should be in for the "occasional" Walcott, it would pay off for him to be starting.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

Lookman is explosive and exciting, but in terms of his contribution to the team across 90 minutes - in areas like passing, tracking back, covering the RB etc - it wouldn't surprise me if Silva isn't seeing enough in training to warrant starting him vs have him cause all sorts of problems as a super-sub off the bench as needed.

Bit of a similar situation to Deulofeu - for me he was usually best for us when coming off the bench.

Its not quite the old Hibbert-Neville-Osman triangle of doom, but it is a definite step down in quality to the other side.

Osman was tidy with the ball. Go for Cahill instead.

Cahill wasnt used as a right midfielder.  Osman on thw wing with no pace, and Hibbert behind and Neville inside was just a creative vacuum.

This is cool. You see a side of silva we haven’t seen yet in the last minute of this clip.

That was great from Silva. He’s really really winning me over and I’m all aboard the Silva train. He seems nothing like Martinez and I can see him really taking us places.
He comes across lovely there with the kids. Love it! :-)

Very interesting piece, Gueye’s incredible ball winning is powering us at the moment and allowing silva’s ‘everyone up’ ethos to work better than it has elsewhere in the prem.

Interesting that we’re 11th for expected goals per game, and 11th for passes, but we are managing to make a lot of shots despite the fact we don’t really have a serious striker.

In general the article portraits an interesting picture that doesn’t really match the current feeling. We are pretty good at the moment and we deserve to be where we are, and silva has found a way to make it work that relies on one super-powered Kante-like midfielder charging about winning the ball whenever he goes anywhere near it - but up top we are taking quite a few shite shots until we squeak one in.

An injury to gueye, or a dip in finishing, and we may well struggle however.

He's essential to how we play definitely

We probably need 2/3 signings in Jan to maintain our position/better it, as you say 1 injury to gana.. or Sigurdsson or gomes would have a big effect on how we play
