You genuinely don't though. T-C understands football. A couple of others guys here have a good grasp on it. But there are plenty of guys here that don't understand it at all. They don't watch football systematically or analytically but rather like a stream of just highlights. When I watch our centre backs, I pay acute awareness to their positioning, and how they respond to danger. When Liverpool bombarded towards the end, Verm was able to get in front of a lot of things and clear a lot of balls, all well and good. But when we were higher up the pitch and affording Liverpool more space, he wasn't coping well at all, and not covering the space quickly enough. He was the source of a lot of our nerviness in the first half.
EDIT - I missed a goal by typing this out like a geek
I'm falling asleep watching this anyway, so I'll just go to bed.
