yep and haaland up to 11.6
i made the switch before friday's game kicked off - it was always my plan to have haaland in for GW2 and i think there were a fair few that were considering the same. yesterday just confirmed their decision
Kouadio Kone is my pick.
Though at 22 it could put us in a serious chance of having a midfield of 3 of
So it's a risk, but Kone is a big, strong athletic midfielder. Can impose himself physically in midfield and is also technical enough for the league. Can carry the ball forwards too so he has an opportunity to work nicely with Kamara in a two with Boubacar being the one who sits
Whilst true, our team was amongst the youngest average age in the league last season. We needed some decent older players as Young and Olsen (whos a sub) were orlur only over 30's and shouldnt be starting in our 11.
Our starting lineup now has a much more normal average age that would typically result in a better team. 28 seems to be the sweet spot around which you'll find Chelsea, Liverpool, man city and United (Arsenal an outlier).
If Gerrard sorts the shape and tactics out it might make a difference, but his signings aren't really a stick to beat him with at the moment... plenty of other options for that.
Though we have a massive squad with all sorts of different players, we know a lot of the those players are European quality, and so a decent manager should be able to be tactically aware enough to use the right players and right formation and right tactics depending on the opponents to outwit them. Especially when we play a championship level team.
