True. I cant believe anyone on here who was saying he would improve them can have actually watched him. Surely they were just going by the fact he had played in the EPL. I watched him once playing for the republic just after he signed and it was clear he is a lump of wood. An old fashioned lower league british style centre half.
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 if you dropped it 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.
