How near are we to the unthinkable? Let's give Raph a good talking to, and a rest?

Not even close.
Noted that his output has dropped off at same time that Harrison and James's have improved.
Likely a link that he is occupying multiple defenders because of his threat which is giving others opportunities.
Also wait for Everton game when we can discount jet-lag issues.

What about recent below par performances? No jet lag then.

Omg are we really so fickle that after one poor game (not multiple poor games I recall) and an entire season as the standout player we think is worth £100m you want to give him a rest. I despair I really do.

To be frank ( not the Lampard frank ) apart from the West Ham game Raphinha has been below par for many matches and hasn't scored from open play for around 11 matches

That ain't helpful for LUFC

He was better last season.

You’ll find the opposition don’t give Raphinha much room to play and draw their players around him because he’s such a threat, that’s why a lot of our play is deflected to the left flank allowing more fluid play like against Villa. Hence he doesn’t see as much of the ball.
That won’t be in every game though and when he gets his chances he will score goals.

But to be fair and Frank, every player been below last season’s form.
We should not rest raphi, he is our best player and can make the difference.

Baz, is that Orta, MB or Radz fault, or is it due to the fact we let Pablo leave,
Only joking, banter, please don't take offence 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

All four Richie😜😜 no I retract that all 3 not King Pablo the guy can do no wrong

But joking aside it's partly his agent Deco and Raphs fault they want their move this summer ; LUFC is no longer their priority; zero chance of them signing a LUFC contract extension.

Poor Raphinha has a bad game One at that now needs a rest, give it a rest, he’s playing well in as side that been made up with 23s he’s running the team, when all are players are fit you will see the difference, leave him alone the lads fine.
