While the article makes an interesting point, it's a bloody obvious one. You could also apply the same analysis to a lot of teams, doesn't mean it is a bad thing.

The way I read it, it was almost dismissive of Silva's tactics (not saying they're not open to criticism) and us be wholly reliant on Gueye. Somehow completely ignoring that Silva is using his resources to maximise output, as a manager should. In my opinion if we were to lose Gueye for whatever reason we would adjust the way we play. We're not as rigid as we were under previous managers (particularly Martinez).

However that was purely my interpretation and others could have formed a completely different opinion of the article.

Not sure if this has been already posted. Some of these stats are quite obvious but quite impressive when you see them written down. I thought the table with possesion won in the final 3rd was quite impressive. I knew it was a major part of our game plan but I didn't realise we were doing that much more of it than other teams.

We seem to be circumspect about when we do it.

It’s not all 110mph all game.

Of course I’m sure L’pool, City, Spurs would have higher numbers than they do if they didn’t have so much of the ball themselves, but it is a big improvement for us.

This is a very good point. I hadn't thought about this.

Bernard and Walcott aren’t doing it for me.

Would try

Pickford
Coleman Keane Mina Digne
Gana Gomes
Lookman Sigurdsson Richarlison
DCL

Bernard was good today i thought, improving every game, he was far from fit when he arrived, think he will be a good un, like Lookman to start starting though.
I still despise Clive Thomas..

It’s just not quite happened for him imo.

He’s still putting hazard level creation numbers up.
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.
