Regarding Joe. I recently touched on that as well. I should be in the dugout! Seriously, what bad timing. This is my qualm with 3 up front. All components need to be firing. Liverpool down to Hendon all have this elephant in the room to deal with. What teams have is a plethora of wide players. I agree with Lee, I believe Brooksy can slot in. Sean is looking great. I usually have a conventional problem with Liam in his role behind Joe. I think this shape contributes to our midfield quandaries. I do think this leaves us short on the counter-attack. Attacking wise, I think it can work great.
I do think this is why we see second 45s end to end. I think we maybe improving - time will tell.
Elsewhere, the lad Hamza reminds me of Daniel Uchechi, really impressed with Toby. The CH pairing is up for grabs. I presume Lee is thinking Quba for ariel stuff, Tommy equally, there's an interesting dynamic to be resolved. I like what the young lad Toby offerers. He reminds me of Lucas in his decision making. I think you need that around the box. Like Lucas he knows when to go in. Very rarely giving away free-kicks.
Our goal, and presumably, going forward without Joe for a while, reminded me of England. The one time we cut inside on Friday we scored. Our goal was England-esque. I think we are of a similar disposition. I can envisage a scenario where, ironically through adversity, we may get more freedom. We can really express ourselves.
My post match thoughts are getting longer and longer - Somebody said to me post-match how much talent the Arsenal had - my response was "so have we!"
