We’re a better team when Connor Bradley is in it instead of Trent. 
 

Is it just about effort? If so, it’s time to go. 

But what about a team with Trent and Bradley in it? All fucking irrelevant now until the new fella starts.

His languid running style does him no favours.

 

And the fact that we don't see him actually running that much is another thing that does him no favours.

 

Someone above said he injects pace to our game.  I agree.  When he plays the ball through the thirds directly to our front line, I love it.  But his tendency to slow the game by dwelling on it, or having no urgency about him, I think is killing us.

 

I think it's time to either move him or sell him.  We have to recalibrate our thinking and never play him at RB again.  It should be Bradley and Joe fighting it out for RB and Trent fighting it out with Macca or Dom for a midfield berth.

 

Today, he played 3 or 4 balls forward that were world class.  That quality is tempered by his lack of pace (he watches too many Pirlo videos when he needs to watch a few more Gattuso videos - a bit of both, please, Trent) and things like when he chipped a ball into the centre of the pitch from the right back position to absolutely nobody which led to a West Ham attack.

 

I wouldn't sell him.  I would play him in midfield.  Put him where he's dangerous and move him out of where he's a liability.

 

Our RB can then get into wider positions running forward which has completely disappeared since Trent came back in.

I was referring to this shit as ‘The Trent Experiment’ before it was a cool thing to say. 
 

Is his “failure” for England a good thing for LFC? Every football fan in the country can see he’s not the Andrea Pirlo he’s so desperate to be. Can he please now just forget about the midfield thing and go back to being the best right-back in the world.

Someone, somewhere is going to make 442 fashionable again in the not too distant future, so I think Arne should just get on with it next year and play Trent as the RM/W.  It's the only position I think will suit him other than RB, with proper midfield cover, but it seems apparent he doesn't want to play there any more.

Did we miss Trent when Bradley and Gomez were covering his position? I'd say not myself. But you could also say that about Kelleher when filling in for Alisson,but it's great to have the big man back at least even if the results arent great also.


Continuity. That’s what we had when Trent & Alison were injured. The longer they stayed injured the more gel’d the cover became. All of a sudden with the return of the so called ‘A’ grade, there was a bedding in that had to take place at exactly the wrong time, coupled with massive fatigue from certain other key players.

 

The result was a loss of consistency. We did an Arsenal class of ‘23. There’s no reason why we can’t actually improve like they did and take it further. Szobo & Cody will not only be more settled, but will have lost their Prem virginity.

Our best run of form in the entire season was that period when Bradley played.

 

Said it earlier in this thread but out of 10 games he played we won 8 and drew 2 scoring more per match and conceding less than the rest of the season. Outside of that run we were generally inconsistent.

 

Obviously there were other factors too but we were more of a balanced team in that period than any other point.

You could use that same argument for getting rid of Salah.

If I was Arne Slot I would be relishing the prospect of finding a solution to the so-called problem of integrating Trent and Nunez into the side. 

 

Two class players, both potentially if not actually world class, devastating at times for club or country but with critics galore.

 

Solve that and Arne will be well on the way to instant success
