Far too much turn and return football. Majority of players had the mentality of ‘don’t be the one to lose the ball’, they weren’t working decent passing angles in attack, they played the ball in the final third in ways that ensured the man receiving it would be the one to lose it. Bellingham and at times Foden were the only ones thinking ahead to their second touch to take them forward, the rest knew they were going to instantly shield it and lay it off.
We’ve been told it’s a happy camp, the divides between players are gone, but they either don’t trust the system or don’t trust each other.
Kane and Sterling played like they’ve just found the other in bed with their lass.
When does Tomori get his chance if it’s not in his stadium against players he’s most familiar with?
