Better Performance, Worse Results

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
Saturday's match was pretty much all the proof we need. It really is all about finishing.

Liverpool have played "better" than they did against Norwich in numerous matches. And it's usually, somehow, led to worse results. Suarez tallied three world-class goals – and that term isn't used lightly – three superlative finishes, each more impressive than the last.

Remember The Trialist

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

Last season a small tweetmeme of #TheTrialist started after Seattle Sounders FC reported non-drafted, non-contracted players as "trialist" in their reports of pre-season scrimmages. There were occasions when "Trialist 1" passed to "Trialist 4." Due to Major League Soccer's various player acquisition methods this was done to reduce the chances of said player being claimed prior to Seattle claiming the player as their own.

Still Not There

RSL were good. They sold their joint out on a weeknight for a competition that's only just registered on the lay MLS fan's radar. They got a fantastic result away in Mexico. They went toe to toe with an opponent of superior quality over two legs. And that quality told in one moment that undid RSL. A late flurry couldn't find them the solitary goal they needed to take the next step on the world stage.

On Saturday, Arsenal conceded another ridiculous goal. Thankfully, It didn't affect the outcome but brought back painful memories of other howlers in the recent past. Now the easy option is to blame Mertesacker and move on. There is no denying the fact that the German should have shown greater strength and could have passed the ball towards Santos or headed it back to Szczesny if he so intended.

The photo above lit a bit of a fire under Arsenal fans yesterday when, after the club held an open training session, several papers published it along with captions reading somewhere along the lines of 'Cesc is a mardy arse who hates Arsenal and obviously wishes he was fondling dolphins with Barcelona 4,500 miles away in Miami' the argument being that it was little more than a single, isolated snapshot of Fab merely looking glum while getting drenched to the bone in torrential rain rather than a glimpse into his very soul.

Take a snapshot of how the Mannschaft and Nazionale are playing in this year's Euro and rewind some years ago. The contrast is flagrant. The whole philosophy has changed. Instead of reasoning in terms of preserving your own goal, Klinsmann and then Löw and Prandelli have built their strategy which prioritizes an attacking style that concerns all players, not only the offensive side.

We've waited a long, long time for that. To my mind, we've not had a result as fine, and as cathartic, since sinking Barcelona in February. (We did beat Utd 1-0 at home, but that was sandwiched between a thoroughly miserable run of form so I'm not going to include that).
