Including: Bob Pearce, Daniel Rhodes and Mihail Vladimirov.
Topics: A new main topic, never previously discussed: Gerrard. Except this time, he’s not the problem, he’s the solution. Watching the game with different eyes. The performance that made Mihail smile. The tactical positives from the Sunderland and especially the Basel match. Sterling on right, stretching the play, Henderson as the off-the-ball runner on the left. The effective double pivot and diverse threat from the full-backs. The difference between Lambert’s form after a run of starts, and fatigue after five games in a short space of time.
