I would LOVE to see Gerrard playing in the centre from now on. Lucas should be a rotation player. Gerrard slightly in front of Masch who will destroy the opponents and feed the ball to him. Then someone like Aquilani ahead of Gerrard would be good. I also wouldn't mind seeing Patches there to see what he's got, but I would rather he start behind someone like Torres rather than N'Gog.

I don't know enough about Pacheco to have a firm opinion. However, the fact that he's getting into match day squads suggests he's capable of doing a job and so, given our short term fitness problems up front as well as the long term financial ones for signing new players, it's a resounding yes from me. Martin Kelly should play too (can't believe Rafa was seriously interested in signing another right back in the window; even more money down the drain, that would have been in my view).

 

Oh and I merged the threads, by the way.

I`d like to see him start in a team including most of our other top players, thats the only way to develop him from now.

 

To start him in a weakened team will tell you almost fuck all really about how he would do if he got his chance in a match together with lets say both Gerrard and Torres.

 

Give one or two fringe players/ youngsters the chance and you will be able to get a lot of answers already after one or two matches.

Lucas has been on the top of his game lately, whereas Aquilani has had too many misplaced passes. His record is very good though 4 starts, 4 wins, 2 assists.

Pacheco and Ngog always linked up well in the ressies, so I could see Rafa playing them 2 tomorrow night.

 

Take a bow mate

He should get a lot of playing time the rest of the season so we can have him ready to make a real impact in the next one. It's not like our attacking players consitently perform a high level anyway, so I can't see what there is to lose from giving him the chance.

He should be on the bench every game for me. Use him if we are coasting, and use him if we need an impact sub. Give the lad a chance because he looks more interested and at least as skillfull as half the first team squad.

He looks like he belongs with the first team. Showing no nerves or anything. Hope he gets a lot more playing time.

He's not in my eyes, he is no wonderkid thats for sure, If he is as good as you think why did we spend £20m on a player who plays in his position.

I'm not saying the kid is crap, and I'd like to see him get a decent run(as we need something different), but I don't think he is as good as people make out. Its only my opinion, and I respect yours.

 

 

Why did we spend £20m on aplyer who plays in Gerrard's position? Fuck knows... I'd rather have Pacheco and £20m than Aquilani/Pacheco and £0m though, that's for sure...

Because one is a young kid and the other is an international.

Aquilani was bought as a centre midfielder, shame it seems he's better suited higher up the field.

 

I think Pacheco has the talent, he just needs a chance.

Can we stop all this? He's a CM and was brought in because we needed more creativity from deep. What you're suggesting is we stick with this two man defensive shield, which isn't going to provide Aqualini with much service when he's further up the pitch.

The problem is I don't think he's good enough to get in our best XI, that's worrying given how much he cost.

Erm, someone correct me if i'm wrong, but isn't LFD the one who keeps bumping his own thread about dropping Gerrard back into midfield?* So presumably, what LFD is suggesting is to put the most complete central midfielders in the world back in the position he belongs, unless of course he rates Lucas higher than Gerrard. Please explain how Gerrard would be part of a "two man defensive shield".

 

Personally, I would play Mascherano and Gerrard in midfield, with Aquilani behind Torres when fit. I think that's where Stevie can influence that game most, and if he's on his game then he can't be stopped in that position. Whereas when he plays just behind the striker, although he's brilliant there at times, he can become very isolated if he is being well marked and the service is poor.

 

I think Aquilani would thrive in the position Gerrard has been playing, because he seems like a flair player with the ability to create something special, but he also seems to be fairly lightweight and weak in the tackle. From what I've seen of him so far, he doesn't look like someone who can play central midfield in the premier league.

 

*I'm not wrong.

When he was bought, Benitez said he wanted to drop Mascherano deeper and play Aquilani a little bit between him and Gerrard. You are going to need to do some defensive duties in that area of the pitch. I'm not talking about a destroyers role, just a balanced one. Alonso was actually very good at tackling, but no-one could call him other than creative.

    • Linekar bloom later? He won the golden boot and Beardsley was a sensation, I’m not saying they would have won it I’m saying they were in with a good chance and they were. Reid also had a great tournament, as did Hodge
    • I wouldn't salvage VAR given the choice. But I accept they're not going to reverse their choice and stop using it. So a challenge system is the only reason I could see it work. I certainly wouldn't give as many as 2 per half, but I would say you don't lose your challenge if you're right. They all have iPads in the dugout, they get one look and can decide if to use their appeal. It won't solve it completely I don't think because for example if Brighton still had their challenge yesterday, they'd have still got their pen. One other alteration I would 100% make, is absolutely no decision gets made in slow motion. They can use multiple angles, but they absolutely should never get to slow it down in any circumstances, offside included. Onfield decision unless you can see clearly from a real time speed from a replay. When they have technology that is 100% accurate for offside, we'll bring it in. In the meantime, in the spirit of the law, figure it out in real-time.  They've fixed that a bit already haven't they by pushing the 4pm kick offs on a Sunday to 4.30 and then the newly introduced game in the evening doesn't start until 7.15. It's similar on Saturday, the 5.30 is followed by an 8pm. Sky and bt fucking love it because it fills hours upon hours of programming, way more than bad onfield decisions ever did. The biggest problem they've got is people turning off. Which I've started to do now. I can't be arsed with any game other than ours and I'm not that arsed about ours anymore. I can't be the only person who thinks football has been completely ruined by VAR, for me now it's like a load of other sport which I have a passing interest in, but absolutely zero passion about. 
    • Think I read that -- all 5'9" and around 150lbs
    • I wouldn't be averse to the idea of giving someone like Nat Philips the job of returning the compliment on Richarlison in the return fixture.
