I agree with most of your post. I think Sturridge has a career but quite clearly only as an impact player. Not a starter.Milner was poor, Sturridge was dire.
I think Sturridge is finished at Liverpool’s level but could do a great job for a mid-Table side. Sadly I think we may also be seeing the first signs of time catching up with Milner. I would not be at all surprised if he leaves for Leeds at the end of the season and if that happens it will be a very sad day but he will go with my immense gratitude and very best wishes. I’m not writing him off but I’m just sensing that he may decide to return to his home town club where it all began. I’m just thinking out loud so I won’t be justifying my views.
I thought that the youngsters all did themselves proud. I think that Camacho, Hoever and Jones all have a big future at the club. Fabinho also showed great maturity and composure playing out of position at CB. Keita started well but faded as the game wore on. I think its going to take him time to get up to the level required in the EPL but he’ll get there and that once he does it’ll be worth the wait.
I thought Milner played well in a tough situation. Someone mentioned he looked unfit, i actually think its because he never stopped running. His touch for their first goal obviously will be seen negatively but how about the horror ball by Moreno, literally passed the buck in a tight situation and sold Milner short.
Re: Fabinho, i mentioned it in his transfer thread. That he seems to have this strange ability of just being in the right place and also in 50/50s of being able to stick a gangly leg in the way to nick the ball, (Admitedly, this was after we signed him, based on Youtube clips. Before that i knew little about him). However, he has a lot more to his game. composure, signs of leadership, Versatility, a direct approach. He has really impressed me on a whole.
