    Agree, on its own covering ground can mean very little, you do also need to be effective. But I profoundly disagree with the suggestion that Eriksen hides. Not going to spend hours arguing over it though, we see things differently, let's leave it at that.

    BTW I have not criticised any of our players for yesterday's poor showing because with many mistakes from practically every player my conclusion was they were spent both mentally and physically. The wins over Chelsea and Milan seemed to have taken their toll. Son was about the only one with any fizz but he has played less than most this week. Whereas Arsenal were fresh because only one of their starting XI played midweek. That kind of preparation often proves critical when teams are otherwise closely matched and so it proved.

    I'm not criticising eriksen, I'm a great believer in horses for courses and tbh this isn't his type of game, all that hourly burly.
    I'm trying to defend the rest of the team by saying/showing it wasn't just the ' usual suspects' that were poor, They all were, even one of our best.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. I'm sure a few people read your posts.

    A fantastic, and very accurate IMO view, of the scenario. I also think Lamela would've seen a change far sooner. He was sorely sorely missed.

    Sissoko is a very good man.

    Bumped in to GlasgowSpur in a bar in Bordeaux this summer and can confirm I had no idea what he was talking about.

    He seems like he copes well, probably speaks into his phone on one of the translation apps.
    Got to admire that sort of spirit.

    That was more to do with your copious consumption of the local beverage than my gentle lilting tones.

    Lucky he waited until December before controlling the ball to a SCBC player twice in a row then

    several great tackles and vital interceptions in defence. his all round game is improving, i think he will replace wanyama as a hard man in the centre.

    I really hope he becomes that player, but I don't think he will as he tends to stand off in 50-50 situations, I just don't think he has that hard man psycho bit in him

    Not to forget (and I can't believe I'm saying this about a human being) peak Wanyama is a fair bit better on the ball.

    More a replacement for Dembele in my eyes. He offers the strong runs from central midfield which in the past when Dembele has been out we have missed. Sissoko now offers this again. I have says credit to the player and Poch for reinventing him as a central player.

    To be fair my dogs better on the ball than Sissoko it's just that I've just given up saying anything negative on here about him and do my best to pick something positive from each performance, for example in his last game did you notice he only kicked the ball out twice while trying to control it, he is definitely improving :)
