Edit…

I had to google it…:joy:
The Kamehameha (かめはめ 波 は , Kamehameha) is the first energy attack shown in the Dragon Ball series. The Kamehameha is the most widely used finishing attack in the Dragon Ball series, and is Goku’s signature technique. It is also a signature attack of the students of the Turtle School.

Hopefully Konate doesn’t get injured by trying :turtle:"Turtle Destruction Wave".

Didn’t cover himself in glory today. Lucky to stay on the pitch. Hasn’t been great this season and I’d prefer Matip as Virgil’s partner for the time being.

Hopefully Konate will recapture his form playing in the cups

Right now, I’m just happy that he seems to be fully fit but it hasn’t been his season so far. Looks like he switches off too often this season, which I frankly didn’t notice before from him. Lucky to stay on the pitch today, lucky that we didn’t concede early in the game from his sloppy back pass (if it was a pass in the first place). He needs to be calmer and more self-assured like he used to be.

All the attention will no doubt be diverted on whether he should’ve seen a 2nd yellow or not but there were some good pieces of defending from him too, did well to get back in position to header away a dangerous cross which DCL would’ve had a free header at if he hadn’t.

Generally felt we defended well, VVD concerned me the most.

I‘m sure I’ve said this before but he gives me Sakho vibes.

Shaky and some strange decisions at times.

His physical attributes stand out but that will never be enough for me.

Won 14/14 in the air last night, but also so many shaky moments…

Hope he finds his rhythm now. We absolutely need him right now to show that he can be our 2nd best (starting overall) CB for a longer period.

As a side note, I’ll be curious to see Quansah for the first time he plays as RCB, paired with Virgil. That’s bound to happen soon.

He’s obviously a really good player, but from what we’ve seen he might have that Gomez tendency of needing a few games to find his feel. I think he’ll be better against Palace.

Looks like some days off.

Not skiing I hope

Ibou skiing, don’t even want to imagine how that looks like.

Wonder if they have allowed the first teamers to chill.

Northcroft:

“Ibrahima Konaté told me about facing a choice between Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid and having his mind made up by a video call with Klopp. “I watched nothing else but his eyes. And I saw sincerity,” Konaté said.”

That I do think is going be the biggest loss.

Being able to use him as an ambassador for us would be helpful
