We're looking good so far.
Imagine having the balls to drop your captain and best player for this NLD.
And then you drop that performance.
Yeah, will be interesting to see if there's any fallout from Auba. It's a tricky one though, I'm genuinely not sure 'tactical reasons' works when it's your captain / best player in the NLD. It's either drop him and be honest or don't imo.Tbf the only thing I felt Mikel did wrong was talking about it being disciplinary pre-match. Much rather he kept it quiet and just came out with some tactical reason nonsense and that would’ve been that.
Feels that’s an aspect of his management career he really needs to improve.
