Yeah with Rooney and Carroll out, Defoe is probably the best available option
Gerrard might be having a reasonable game, but that shouldn't disguise the fact that the midfield on the whole has been very poor imo. It's like there just isn't a midfield at times. The fact that Defoe is repeatedly having to come deep, despite being the lone striker, to collect the ball on the half-way line from one of the fullbacks just shows how rubbish its been so far today.
Should bring on Carrick imo, need someone who can just sit in the middle of the pitch and pass it around. Seems like none of the players on at the moment can do this, they're all determined just to run around all over the place and get forward all the time.
Defoe replacing Welbeck would make more sense to me. Welbeck drops deep and helps you control the game from the start but I'm not sure what you get from bringing him on late in the game. Defoe's great at getting goals out of nothing against a tiring defence. Got more goals from the bench than any other player last season iirc.
One plus play-offs I think. Defeat here could be disastrous.
Annoying as ****, fouls like that
Although on second look it was barely deliberate
Talk of an injury for RVP, about the only good thing about tonight's football
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
