Controversial I know but

Controversial I know but

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-03-31, 11:15 am

Do you think that the manager may know best, well better than we armchair experts.

Players given a few days off, one even had the nerve to catch some sun.
Disgraceful I read, they dont deserve it.

Visiting a factory at Peterlee.
What's that all about?

Yesterdays team selection.
Fletcher, he is starting Fletcher and what about past it O'Shea and Cattermole, I don't care Kone, McGeady ffs.

We wont win a game this season.

Maybe it's more down to changing his tactics,which he should have done ten games ago.

Yes your right. 4-4-2. The players understand it and I stated at the time that fannying about with formations is for pre season.

The players at SAFC are incapable of playing anything other than 4-4-2

Did we not play 4-5-1 yesterday and win 1-4?

Yesterday just to split hairs we officially played 4-1-4-1 transitioning between 5-4-1 & 4-5-1 with Catermole in the hole.

My intended point was that we do not have the individual ability to play a fluid transition game from the back & so a traditional 4-4-2 style is best suited due to the safety in numbers.

Ps. Apparently Derby changed in an unfamiliar 4-2-3-1  Very Happy

Well it looks like we played anything but 4-4-2 and won, maybe the players are better than we thought.

I think the key point is playing FOUR at the back. Which I took to be the main idea behind the original post by rovertsafc, that Gil and I and Kiwi were supporting i.e. any tactics involving 3 centrebacks /wingbacks is beyond our players capabilities.

So Coleman stopping experimenting and realising we need to play at the back with four 'traditional' defenders whatever formation is in front of them, is progress. As we found out on Friday.

Now let's hope it works again on Monday, and that Fletcher has gained confidence, Gooch is raring to go again, McNair has suffered no ill effects from his comeback, and JOS's legs are up to playing 2 games in 3 days.
