Can anyone for the life of me tell me why Dennis Praet wasnt played instead of mendy last night? Even for one half with his recent injury. Just when we need a technically direct passer of the ball instead we get our least best DM making runs forward like a headless chicken. 

 

Unless BR has a plan and is splitting or strictly rotating certain players for certain games them I'm a bit lost on this.

He has a footballing brain and technical ability groomed at the top of the serie A. We don’t need all our players to run 200mph and have no end product. Top player and glad he’s with is

I'm curious about a pre game(cp) and replay today of a water break during the Everton match(sky). Rodgers was very emotional with who I think was Praet on the sideline. Interesting stuff for Rodgers who usually is so calm.

Yes I noticed that also, didn't he get substituted shortly after that?

Thanks for responding. Maddison came on for him at the half. So it must have been the first break. Wish I could find video of that.

A bit late to discuss maybe but that "interchange" really blew my hair back. Especially watching Praet trying to knock him back. Perhaps Rodgers not always the mild mannered gent I thought him to be. Could feel the intensity.

Some times I can't help myself being a bit of a "Drama Queen"

He really doesn't look like a happy player at the moment. His reaction to Brendan in the drinks break was from a player that doesn't respect his manager, he has looked furious too when he has been taken off. Something has happened between the two of them...

I agree - would definitely not be surprised to see him move on. He wants to be playing and his form doesn’t say ‘play me’ or ‘I’m a safe pair of hands’.  After all, we could easily decide to go three in the middle and Dennis doesn’t currently seem motivated to be that man ahead of hamza.

For me, I think he’s been anonymous since he arrived. I get that we all, myself included, desperately search for signs of brilliance. But the truth in my head is that he’s been virtually without influence in a game since joining. Not talking about can he run or pass. But influence. Like doing something that actually impacts the game. So very, very little by way of return.

I like him and he has done some great things but something is not clicking between him and Brendan which is surprising given Brendan's man management skills. Dennis just looks thoroughly unhappy everytime I see him. That's sad to see and maybe he isn't in the position he thought he would be in? Maybe he isn't happy with warming the bench so much? He is subbed a lot when he starts and many times it has seemingly been unjustified. I don't think fitness is the issue so I feel like there is something going on between him and Brendan. He also doesn't seem to have fitted in with the team as much as others have e.g Perez and Youri.....
