It was a pretty inept performance against Inter, and to be honest we were very lucky to go through.
It was as though we had no idea, no pace in the team, nothing up front, bad defending and no quality in midfield. All in all, an extremely poor performance by the whole team. No blame on the mnager, just the players were just bad on the night.
And whilst on the subject of players, I think that if we really have ambitions for the Champions League, the time is right for AVB to drop Kyle Walker. Walker basically lost us the points at Liverpool with his ludicrous back pass, and then against Inter he just pushes a player for absolutely no reason giving away a free-kick which they ultimately score from and almost loses us the game. It’s not the first time this season he has made ‘massive’ mistakes, we just cant afford any more at this very important time.
I rather like Walker as a player, but he has lost all confidence and needs not only a break from the team but a kick up the backside. At the moment he is the team’s weakest link, and unless we do something about it, I can see us going backwards for the rest of the season instead of forward.
I am still also still annoyed that we didn’t get a ‘Striker’ in the January transfer window, we are still very light in that department. However, there is nothing we can do about that until the summer now and the last couple of months of the season are going to be nail-biting for all of us. Let’s hope we can put on a decent performance this weekend against Fulham.
