Thank **** it’s over. Jury is well out on Gerrard for me. Not convinced one bit. He needs to show more than brief flashes of positive football as most of his time here has been lambert style dourness. All well and good blaming players and individual errors, his tactics and substitutions at times haven’t been good at all. Hopefully he learns quicker.
Bringing on Nakamba to preserve a lead is never a good idea, but I won't go into that.
However, why did Gerrard take off Coutinho, who was a threat on the counter, instead of Buendia, who didn't do anything?
No, we don't need a second chamber organised on these lines. The 'submerged nations' already have their devolved legislatures. A second chamber organised on these lines would be - rightly - perceived as deeply anti-democratic for the vast majority of voters in the UK who live in England.
Also, a second chamber with 8 members would be absurd.
I need to calibrate my exchange rate of French midfielders to gauge how good this guy might be:
How many Jean II Makoun / Matthieu Berson would I get, ability wise, for one Boubacar Kamara?
I hope, for the love of McGrath, this guy puts an end to our (long) search for a defensive midfielder who is any good.
If we’d lost 3-0 it was kind of expected but Villa don’t do that, they want to give you hope then gut punch you…2-0 up after 75 minutes…then wham bam lose 3-2. Why didn’t they just lose like we all expected because I didn’t care about this game but no no they want us to suffer! Peeves me off more!
