So I was watching some of Darwin's performances from his first season at benfica, and bizarrely he was exhibiting a lot of the weaknesses that make him a frustrating player for us- getting caught offside all the time, lacking composure when presented with easy chances, choosing to shoot when the pass is on but more often choosing to pass when the shot is on, running into a cul-de-sac sometimes, getting frustrated with himself and snatching at chances etc, but he also got team mates involved a lot and racked up the assists even when not scoring because of bad decisions. he was also played on the left wing instead of through the center at times and actually looked more effective having space in behind to take full backs on one v one and the. Cutting inside or delivering cutbacks

As we all know Darwin got flak from benfica fans for missing a lot, went off social media, worked on his game in the off season and turned in a blinder his last season at benfica, topping the scoring charts, lighting up the champions league, becoming the hottest non-haaland property on the market that year and then moving to us, all while continuing to develop his all around game and rectifying a lot of the faults that he showed in the season before

Oddly enough the exact same thing has happened again, maybe this sort of ebb and flow is going to take place once more? Very enigmatic and emotional player, but he's shown that when he has confidence and space to attack in front of him he can be a monster.

Darwin really found his feet during the season but the final international break seemed to throw him along with a whole load of players out of form.

I think he will benefit from the new era under new coaches, without the pressure cooker environment that was created by Klopp's imminent departure.

Call me hopeful.

This season coming is Darwin’s third season with us tho. He should have been doing what you said last Summer.

I doubt Nunez will ever not frustrate, but as long as his numbers are good, he will always be worthy of a place in the current team.
As for his end of season dip, it happened to many, but it also coincided with us playing slow deliberate keep ball around the halfway line. Rather than looking to utilise his strengths behind the backline. We saw many times with the lethal Haaland, if you don't provide the ammunition, it's difficult to score.

OP, Isn’t what you are saying basically that he hasn’t changed / improved ?

I think he has one more season to show consistency in his game awareness and scoring ability. If he doesn’t do it next season I doubt he ever will (at least for us) . we signed him for @ € 75m which is a hefty sum of money for an inconsistent return.

Actually what I mean WDW is that he did improve, but then fell back into old patterns again, but the way in which he reacted to being made the target of ridicule and derision before shows that he has the ability to react. I think the issues with him are both mental and tactical, he is a player who needs confidence and needs space to attack, he’s not the kind of player to pirouette past players near the corner flag in a packed box and play one-twos in tight spaces, he needs space to run directly at defenders and the game around him has to be fast and direct rather than slow, methodical and ponderous
I think with slot keeping his wingers out wide rather than cutting into the box and the number 10 and two 8s pushing high up to feed Darwin we could see an interesting turn of events for him, though I think at the same time slot’s football is considerably less direct and more calculated than vintage klopp, so we’ll see what happens.


6.) 12 Jun 2024 09:06:21
Sirshanks, City keep the ball better than anyone and Haaland still scores more than anyone. A big difference, as well as City taking their chances, is that it's ok to do that when you're winning and not chasing games. When we are conceding so many goals keeping the ball isn't what is needed.
A lack of control at the back, in midfield and up front meant that we were often on the back foot.


7.) 12 Jun 2024 09:18:31
Make or break season for Darwin I feel.
Hopefully the new coaches can work on his confidence and composure.
He’s good enough, he needs to believe in himself and focus.

Imagine if we bought Bakayoko and Frimpong, we'd probably top the league in attempted dribbles every game haha.

Excellent player, always assumed he was nailed on for arsenal. Would be a decent replacement for robbo when he eventually decides to move on imo, not totally sure he’s ready for such a big jump but wasn’t sure tsimikas was either (and I think Kostas has generally been a capable backup), kadioglu is certainly of a higher level than him at this moment and can only improve.

Are you serious? Last year he surprised us all and played and led like a skipper, trolls abound on this site.

That’s crazy talk, oli, Gordon is proven in this league and adeyemi has yet to prove himself in the bundesliga, Gordon also badly wants to play for the club and that always means something. Both have high upside still but one is much further along in development than the other.

I’ve solved it MK, viktor lives in a parallel dimension where said players really play the positions he claims they do and perform exactly as he says, but somehow his posts in that reality’s Liverpool rumours board makes it over here. So you see, it’s not really his fault at all, it’s a short circuit in the time space continuum. Can’t say I am much of a fan of his humour either though, think the jokes in that dimension still remain on the level of bawdy misogyny.

As for joao neves, great player, bad value for money in my opinion, he’s sort of like a much more athletic Jorginho though, if anybody is into that sort of profile of player.

I’m pretty sure it will only be a club ban if fifa intervene, deeming the Conmebol punishment to be too lenient
I have no idea why they should be subject to any kind of punishment though.

Might I add that Fabinho didn't look quite like the player that he became for us when he was bought from Monaco, he spent all his time actually playing as a flying right back before he was switched to the 6, at the time he wasn't in the Brazilian national team, clearly the scouting team identified qualities of his (most of all positional awareness and ability to cover large amounts of space quickly out wide) that would be perfect for the way we were set up and wanted to play. Certainly in terms of profile Fabinho wasn't a big name signing, either, unless you're telling me that at the time you knew he was going to be a world beater.

Jaguar, sure we could do with a Rodri, I mean he is only the best midfielder in the world on form and in terms of importance to both Spain and City, but you missed the fact that he is unique and the only player of his type in the world, just as Fabinho was for us in his prime with his extreme mobility, tactical intelligence, athleticism as well as his ability to shield and pass the ball. You saying 'we need a Rodri' is pointless. Maybe you would feel better if you stopped coveting players/ prospective players from other teams, I'm sure the club is working out what they need and how problems can be solved, when the window closes you can moan but right now it just comes across as a lot of complaining about nothing.

I think his wage demands might be a bit too rich for us to consider him personally, even if he doesn't end up at Barca. High fee and high wages don't make for a very attractive package. To be fair though, he's outperformed all expectations at the Euros, that performance will probably bump the fee up even more. He does seem to want to go to Barcelona and Laporta talks about him openly to the press, so.

Jaguar, I'd like to know who the 'top DM' you're speaking about who would've won us the league. If we had Palhinha or Ugarte instead of Endo, you think we would have won the league? If that's the case, are you saying we didn't win because Endo could have done better, or worse, that he actually failed us in key moments? How do you know that having somebody other than Endo would have given us better results? We didn't win the league for any number of a multitude of reasons, bad finishing, glaring tactical flaws, Klopp's annoucement taking its toll on the players etc., but to suggest that not having a better DM than Endo is really stretching it in my opinion. As if there is really a DM that can cover all the ground that was left exposed in transition by our tactical shortcomings. Maybe Slot's new system won't have us marooned on the counterattack in quite the same way as last season?
