    Excellent sub appearance for sure. Wonder if coming on as a sub could have been helpful for him, fresh legs and all that. But coming on that early that shouldn't be a big factor straight away.

    Probably more him having a couple of less effective games as should be expected then back to his best, very good to see.

    Over a large enough sample size, yes, more or less. But that would have to be over several seasons I think.

    I get the comparison to Vertonghen and Son, or perhaps Carroll to Bale against West Ham. It's a good, useful pass though, rather than the easiest option of giving the ball to Royal he picks the slightly harder, slightly risky (not that far from an opponent) pass. Always good thing, doesn't always happen.

    Assist for the other goal was much more impressive of course.

    I wonder if he could develop his game in a way where he could play the "Kane" role for us, he has the physic and can hold the ball and has an awareness where other players are.

    That’s how he played at Parma pretty much. A hybrid between eriksen and Kane when in creative mode

    He's 21, what a signing.

    If we signed Diaz too I think we'll be in top 4 now.

    Could he play wing back?

    3rd most points since Conte arrived I believe, so think we've done pretty well to be where we are. Lets see if we can get 3 more wins and whether that's good enough

    Diaz and Kulu makes it obvious that it's harder and harder to find players who understand intelligent movement.

    Perhaps modern tiki taka training methods and futsal has deprived too many young players from appreciating the dynamics of movement across a full sized football pitch.

    Diaz is amazing, claiming his space and driving the already very competent Liverpool team forwards.

    Yes, though the games where we had zero supply from midfield and zero shots on target when we have kane and son up front irks me so much.

    What a waste of their talents and a missed opportunity for CL, while allowing arsenal to pick up even more momentum.

    We make it hard for ourselves.

    We do make it hard for ourselves, but the Goons have made their own momentum by winning and winning (and playing teams that roll over for them - Chels/Manue/Wet Spam/Leeds.

    Think the Chelsea game is decisive, again the scheduling worked out well for them. Not hard to beat Chelsea at the moment with all the upheaval at the club. If we played them when Arsenal did and vice versa I think we’d have two extra points and be in pole position for Top Four. Also Fernandez missing a penalty because United are such a state. I don’t think Arteta is such a brilliant manager, Ole got United into the CL a few times didn’t he?

    Thought he was absolutely tremendous in that first half against Liverpool. So much quality on the ball, found space, found teammates.

    Lets not forget that Arsenal avoided playing with us due to injuries and sickness

    1 covid case, and they had loaned out players, and had a suspension. Bending the rules since 1919.
