Given Wisdom is a twenty year old player, in a position he is not comfortable, don't you think that one of the senior players should have been doing more to provide him with a passing option? You seem to be willing to castigate Wisdom for not doing that much wrong, while giving his senior colleagues, who were happy to watch him do so, a free pass. I think you have your priorities a bit wrong.WrongIslander said:Given where Wisdom was when he started option 4 is clearly the most sensible. The fact that you need to say comically should be an indication of how poor a decision it is. Show me any example of where a player has done this in the last season or 10 and you might have a point.
You hold the ball, put your body in front of it and then when there is so much pressure it's practically impossible to do anything else (unless you can get a foul) you try and get a throw in. EVERY wide player is taught this to a man, it's the reason they go so wide so as to make it less likely that they lose possession in a way that would put the team under more pressure as well as obviously opening up the pitch.
While you're going on about Wisdom's 'poor error' - an 'error' that resulted in him actually getting it back to the keeper, consider Gerrard turning his back on Shelvey and getting himself lost when the Jonjo did that airshot. That cost us a goal.
