hi N4l, long time no chat
I agreed with your point about phillipe, but I strongly disagree if u said coutinho has been playing like this since his arrived in 2010, actually there was a quite big gap between the old coutinho and the nowadays coutinho, the old coutinho is always looking for a pass, always looking for a teammate way more often then coutinho now, but back then I always felt that he needed to step out from his comfort zone, he need to try penetrate more often, but now he is just
, way too selfish, if u disagree with my opinion, please look at the footage back in 2010 or during benitez's regime, the truth is he was impressive until he suffered from hamsring injury (unfortunate really), that's why I often thought that if only he can combine the intelligent or clever play that he has in 2010 and the penetration plus determination he has now, he will be awesome, a good player, I'm quite confidence about that.
cassano, palacio and milito can't stay healthy all season long, injury just around the corner, and I'm against loaning him out again, not only it will affect our depth in attacking department, it probably also affect coutinho's confidence, at least don't loan him now. its a fragile period for cou now, we've been giving all the support that he needed, the rest is up to him, whether he will success or not it depend on him, learn from your mistake kidd and please be a great player we always dream of!
