1st of all...koeman did his usual...he always manages to invent something...this time he decided to, god knows why, start marco ferreira...to start with...who the hell hired that player? seriously, im gonna apply to play myself, at least i have better legs
marco is of coz a below average player, and he showed it for all 65m he was on the pitch....for a moment there i thought that he was never being replaced....
then again, koeman seems to believe that nuno is both our striker and playmaker, 2 in one.....im sorry, but as hard as he may work, he is one, not two....and playing with marcel he does have to play for two...marcel, like we say, não engana....he's very poor and very lazy
also would like to know why were there no shots from outside the box when the pitch was in such bad condition...was it the players option? was it lack of orientation from the coach? no idea...
manuel was obviously affraid to catch a yelllow card, that was obvious all game long, that is why i would rather have had a 3rd player playing next to him and petit, rather than a 2nd striker ( specially when that man is marcel....), so that he could play with more confidence and we could actually control the midfield
finally, why is it that every game we get half the team changed? seriously, changing 1, 2...3 players is one thing....5 or 6 players every game is simply absurd, and kills any mechanizations the team might have
having said all that, im not happy at all with the performances of a couple players:
marco ferreira as stated, marcel as stated...and i would like to add ricardo rocha, who had a pathetic game, late on the ball, clueless on high balls, and with an amateurs passing, and simao, who was terrible tonight....i would seriously consider benching him once robert is back, just not starting him....that is not how a captain plays
having said that, leo, petit, luisao, moretto, nelson, nuno gomes were well tonight, or at least tried to get a positive result out of the game
wont comment on manduca since i only seen him on the picth for some 15m, even less for karagounis, becoz i left at 80m
i do think that koeman managed to destroy the teams spirit, no doubt about that, what he did to quim was just the last drop.....i agree that the players are in the "fazer a folha " mood, its been like that for sometime i think. A couple weeks ago i said the lack of respect koeman has showed for the players since he came , was beginning to have reciprocity from the players side....and its showing
quite honestly, i think the title is lost, and i think the 2nd place may be too,and i think we will get our asses kicked next tuesday
ps: yes kleber, i agree....some players are showing lack of respect for the fans, one of which, is simao
