He’s gone for a tougher midfield 3 there in a similar way to Coughlan used too. To be fair Liverpool tend to have mostly tough ball winners in midfield and rely on marauding fullbacks and the forwards for the flair. You have to win the 50/50s and earn the right to play. Something Garner didn’t seem to understand.
Fair comments we did look too easy to play through under Garner. It does leave us looking a bit short of creativity though, hopefully as we move on if we persist with two holding midfielders we might see a shift to 4 at the back and an extra attacking option in the side.
Very pleased to see Upson starting again. Thought he would start to be fair, as we needed that extra quality and experience in midfield. He played really well Wednesday and was a big part of that fluid attacking football we saw. Up the Gas!!
Upson is awful. Has about 5 good games per year the rest of the time he’s not even average. Offers nothing. But hopefully he’ll have one of his good games today.
