It gets made again and again for a reason lol Henry and Watkins played every game last season so it isnt such a big ask. The midfield went AWOL after Norgaard went off injured which is worrying but hopefully today was a one off.Sorry, but this is a stupid point that gets made again and again. This season, more than any other, is not going to be about the best 11 on the pitch, as it's simply impossible to achieve with 2 games a week. Even if you did put the best 11 out there, they wouldn't be the best for that long, as they'd be knackered after a few weeks of that.
It'll be about the best squad and the ability of those who wouldn't normally be in the best 11 to be almost as good and slip in and out of the team effortlessly. Thomas's job is to know who those people are. Today was about the inability of a midfield to get hold of a game where we are pressed and pressured tight, as it has been for a number of games last season too. The difference today was we leaked goals, as our best combative midfielder went off.
