This diamond isn't helping at all. They're more concerned with keeping shape than anything else
hence freeing pogba, but now he's holding?
yeah. obviously he doesn't want to be freed up otherwise it'd get in the way of Laz's narrative
:)) That new found narrative I have with Pogba. Funny how he just keeps proving me right, manager after manager, game after game, year after year, fanboy after fanboy.
Proving you right by being the top scoring and top assisting cm in the league
In the end, though, it's consistency of opinion that matters. Doesn't matter whether you're right or wrong. Well done Laz for being the Teresa May of Rant.

It’s a win, but it’s concerning that the performances have been getting worse over the last month.
Some of the blame has to go down to injuries. We got a few back before the international break but they need match sharpness. See how they do in a couple of weeks now that almost everybody is back.

I also just think we're coasting like we used to, just doing enough, because we've got bigger fish to fry in the CL

Yeah fair point. It’s the tempo and urgency that’s dropped. Could be just a lack of sharpness - it needs putting right though.
Tbf it's as if we've reverted to type now the Ole effect has worn off and the players got knackered doing the high press. We're looking like the squad Jose built; defensive and counterattacking. And there's nowt wrong with that when it's done well and is effective. Problem under Pulis was it was bus parking and long balls.
Having a higher paced wide forward who can beat men against deep defences - like a Sancho - would help our tempo. Martial does it but he’s not top drawer at that stuff. A higher energy midfielder like Kante would help too

Good interview, as usual. Ole basically sees the match they way we do -- disappointing performance, good result. "Shawry" isn't working at all for me as a nickname though.

It's not my consistency that's the problem though.
