Everyone knows now about Trent and his game, what he exceeds at and what he lacks. When we play with him it usually goes 1 of 2 ways, we’re on the back foot not able to string 2 passes, he’s getting skinned every chance and we lose or we play well and we’re able to get him on the ball and he does his usual brilliance whilst we all sit back and say wow after he creates a goal or 2 in a great win.
Yesterdays performance from him is reminiscent to any Trent performance when he plays well, when he helps the team win by providing we don’t point out his defensive display and vice versa when we lose we dont point out his offensive display.
The point stands though, Trent has started getting in better positions out wide. Some of the crosses he’s delivered in the last two games have been sensational.
We’ve missed that threat from the wide right positon in far too many games this season. Henderson can provide it occasionally but nobody can replicate what Trent does if we allow him to find that space.
Body language isn’t always about caring, he has on several occasions, when the camera has panned to him said f#*k off, to what seems to be his own player’s pulling him up and on quite a few occasions he hasn’t sprinted back into position.
His effort and work rate were excellent today so now he has set his level, he has been at this level in the past, so therefore in many games his effort has been below par!
I do own but you can’t see that he has been below what he can do effort and attitude wise.
The way I see it he was thinking to much maybe feeling mentally tired but today as I said it he said fuck it and was back to his best in all aspects, he gave his all for the time on the pitch rather than maybe saving himself so he plays 90 min.
I know I have done it as a player when I have felt lethargic, I may be wrong, but I loved what I saw today and for me it was night and day from a lot of the games Trent has played this year
