Gerrards breakdown of why he changed the squad was class, normally managers BS around reasons he just called it for it is, speaking about Davis and his age is just great awareness from both.
Jack was class last night, so aware of what is going on tactically, he is on it every, single, time Tav breaks he is slotted right into that RB area. He would catch your pint before it hit the ground and never spill a drop he is that sound a cunt, that is how much he has his team mates back.
Not where it will have a legacy and is sustainable
The likes of Broadfoot, Thomson, Papac, Cuellar, Bougherra, Wylde, Edu all found incredible levels of performance under Smith but they only ever done it for Smith, it seemed to be in part emotion driven and short term
Gerrard and his coaching team have developed and created players to the tune of millions and millions of pounds being added to their value.
He reads the game so well and finds space (like with Kamara’s superb reverse pass on Saturday) or provides cover when the captain bombs forward. Dovetails brilliantly with Kamara especially.
We are so lucky to have Kamara, Jack, Davis and Arfield in their current form having cost us pennies. The fact that the last two are playing so well despite having looked finished not that long ago is a great tribute to our coaching staff.
He does exactly what the coaching team want from him, that's why he's one of the managers men.
Causes some amount of discussion on here but love him or hate him he's going nowhere anytime soon under Gerrard.
Games like last night he'd be one of the first on the team sheet. Games on Sunday coming not so much.
