Has there ever been a more cordial match thread than this?

He looks like a kid

Did you see the video of him? He looks about 13. Wish him all the best of course though.

Sounds like Leicester had a clear breakaway that Joel stopped.

Yeah, he looked more mascot than first team player. :)

Then again, Bilyaletdinov probably still looks like he's 15.

Barkley and Coleman on the flanks sounds revolting

Barkley has actually been showing some promise tucking in from wide positions. He's an absolute motherfucker to defend in the half-spaces and it creates a bit more confusion for defenses to have that player moving outside in (does the fullback follow him? does a midfielder pick him up?) than inside out (where a midfielder can easily track him). I think it can be defensively viable too since the sideline is there to help him out (we already know Ross isn't the best at defending in the centre of the pitch). It's an experiment worth seeing through and I hope Koeman sees it that way. The 4-2-2-2 is a workable tactic if you have the right midfield two. Leicester played a version of this last year and Leipzig have using a similar tactic to great effect this season.

On the other hand, w/r/t Coleman-as-winger... I agree with the "revolting" assessment. (Might work for one game, though.)

It's not much better, I forgot how little they talk about what is actually happening in the game.

The 30 second discussion about Leon Osman's new hat has been a highlight so far
