spot on. Coutinho is the only one forward at the moment who can think as quickly & creatively as himself. With Suarez missing, and Gerrard playing so deep, there has been no one at the top to compliment his intelligence. This happened to us a few seasons ago with Aqui- the few times he did play, Gerrard was not on the pitch, and he was the most intelligent player on the field. His creativity outsmarted defenses, but it also outsmarted his teammates.Mascot88 said:...Coutinho is struggling by virtue of being the only creative attacking threat we have - teams can make him out if the game not really needing to worry about anyone else, and playing on the left is not great for him as teams find it easy to push him to the margins. Lets get Moses in to provide a proper left winger, and get Coutinho into the centre. When Suarez is back he'll get some time as space as well...
