On Episode 77 of CHN Radio I disagreed with Elijah and said I wanted Emil Krafth to start over Atletico Madrid’s Javier Manquillo. Once again, I was right and Elijah was wrong.*
When Emil travelled back to Newcastle after the team’s 1-0 win over Spurs, it is reported that he was very fatigued due to having Son and Danny Rose in his pocket. Krafth, which means Force in Swedish was an absolute brick wall for the gaudy orange Magpies and the Champions League runner ups had no answer on how to break through.
He was able to hold up some of the most outstanding attackers in England and they had no answer for him. At one point he even made three consecutive clearances. It’s not easy being that good and I know he did it all because he heard I was cheering for him, so I appreciate it Emil.
May the Krafth be with you.
*Editors note: Hey friends, it’s Elijah! Quick note, this does not happen as often as Greg is making it seem. I am definitely correct more often than he is!
