agree, it'd be nothing to do with the peacock's performance yesterday, but i can see kiko getting the nod next week simply because of the dodgy recent results so marcelo may want to make a few changes to kick us out of the rut, even though that 'rut' is primarily the result of the attackers.
be interesting to see if berardi plays for the u-23's tomorrow, cos i can see him replacing pontus. personally i wouldn't mind seeing the shack replace ayling, who i thought was below par again yesterday. kalvin into the midfield, klich dropped, roofe dropped and roberts starting up front and edmondson on the bench.
he doesn't normally make many changes as we know, so this is probably nonsense, but i bet recent results will have hurt him, especially with jones claiming to have outsmarted bielsa with his change of tactics. training this week will be additionally intense.
we miss having saiz as an option.
increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.
