NLM debate Rant part 1
Similar thread just gone up on NLM so I thought I would expand my thoughts into a rant. The state of the modern game. I didn't watch the recent Liverpool/Burnley affair but I did catch the Sky Sports headlines before going to bed. Souness was on citing the lack of quality. 'Quality' is a word I've heard badied about a lot lately by vertually everyone after most top flight games. Here's my view and it ain't pleasant.
Earlier in the season, I watched the Gunners at Brighton and was amazed at how obvious it was that a poor side like Brighton could simply overcome an Arsenal side simply by playing 2 up-front. Arsenal were completely bamboozled as if this was an alien. out of this world, never seen before event. Their crossing was amusing. I gave up counting how many attempted crosses failed to get past the first man. I lost all hope and popped out for a kebab!
I don't like the overriding trend placed on youth. Incoming flack... Gary Lineker has apparently just stated the opposite view citing how a modern day Spurs side would wipe the park with his side back in the day. Personally, I would love to see a Hoddle type grace the midfield - For me all players look the same and play the same.
The very same Sky news update at the time citing Liverpool would not be signing anyone of note due to being unable to locate any 'quality'. It's all loan moves for like for like. Stay tuned...
