Point im making is that Fulham are clearly no walk overs. Had any one of our front 4 showed any type of composure we had that game in the bag. We were far from perfect for sure but had created enough to win, Bruno can't be held accountable for **** finishing.
Coady didn't play the Coady role under Bruno. The days of long diagonals to wing backs went 2 years ago. Coady was just another CB albeit a good leader.
5 at the back is not unique in football. Not everyone has a Coady and it'll not be famously known as the Coady role.
Apologies if already commented however an interesting comparison here is Mitrovic. At a similar age he scored 36 goals over 69 appearances for Anderlecht. This was about 7 years ago. Not sure if that league has increased or decreased in quality over time however we can see the level of...
Maybe you're being tongue in cheek or maybe not but have we lost out? Possible we decided not to pursue like we did with Palinha when seemed likely Neves staying?
Being optimistic i hope this means positive news re preferred option whoever that may be.
He's an England International Centre half - does he not back himself against 2 less experienced players? Bruno even stated that he thinks Conor can play 4 at the back plus he wants flexibility so a back 5 could be used also. That suggests there was every reason to stay and fight.
Either way it...
