Yeah, I love a bit of sterile domination.We might have won the CL if he played - was well chuffed when an unfit Lallana came on!
.....So swings and roundabouts.
I bet you hate players that take people on and create chances and prefer the nice sideways and backwards approach by the current 3!
Seriously, though whenever we have a bad result there are cries of ‘where art thou, Phillippe’. But the reality is that
- we kicked on and improved after he left. We might not have got to the final had he still been in the team, demanding everything went through him before blamming the ball into row Z
- he left by one of the most shitty, petulant, self serving displays by one of our players in our history. Let’s not reframe this as the club willingly selling him. He forced his way out be behaving like a prick.
