The pessimist in me tells me someone has had a word with Mo to try and look happy during the match.I went for Mo as MOTM for his tireless hard work and just for seeing his smile again.
We've seen what the media can do when they get a sniff of something they can twist into 'unrest', and we've seen how fans, particularly in the social media age, can be gullible enough to believe those stories and turn the situation into an unstoppable snowball - 'Real tapped him up', ' he hates his teammates', 'he wants to leave Liverpool' just because he isn't smiling. I actually missed the first half for my daughter's dance comp which she was in a shitty mood for. I told her if she didn't want to put in her best effort at least smile and pretend she is enjoying it, for the judges. And it turns out she's a good lier ( which if she's smart will probably use on me multiple times later in life).
I didn't truly believe his 'smile after every miss' - it was in such stark contrast to the game 4 days before - but i hope it does ease some pressure off him.
