Got to say I'm not a huge fan of the formation we play, especially without having a 'batty' type number 4.
It is wonderful when it works and allows us to stream forward, such as vs burton, but if it doesn't work we're open in the middle. It also takes a lot of subs and tinkering if it doesn't work, as essentially you have to bring people like roofe or siaz back and they aren't that type of player. I don't have a solution and don't claim to, as more solid middle players don't have the goals and creativity. Perhaps we need to go out in January and focus on getting two proper number 4s rather than more attacking players

We have a proper number 4.viera

17 Sep 2017 10:31:57
Not sure I agree, but if he is then he needs to play!

I went to the game yesterday curahee and in my opinion that game was for players like Dallas/viera, I can see why he didn't change a winning team but we got outfought all over the pitch, they picked all the 2nd balls up. don't really remember us creating anything of note. jury still out on alioski for me personally, not sure if he's been over hyped, lassoga needs to be a lot more phisical but that will come as he gets more used to the championship, just hope Pontus didn't pull his hamstring and just felt a tweak, we only have shaunassey available for Tuesday night as it stands and he's a make shift centre back.3 points next Saturday and we will be back on track. 👍

Agreed mate. slightly concerned I have to say. not because we lost, more the manor of the loss, however I'm sure TC will have been in at 8 this morning poorinf over the tapes and things.

We were all fans of the way we played yesterday morning

We have the squad what we need is a system to cope with the pounding we will get from physical teams. I too do not really have an answer, but merely a suggestion, and at the end of the day have full faith in TC. Would it be advisable to play 2 DMs in those type of games or at least play Viera+Phillips with the instructions not to get too cavalier and think destructive and defensive first. As a wild thought I would even try Berardi in a DM role?

Well said Wex, and I'm still a fan of the way we play, just a bit disappointed with losing. Having said that, McFlytipper scored the last time we won at the den.

17 Sep 2017 12:46:58
A week ago we were slating bridcutt for being too defensive and praising the fact Phillips was encouraged to be more attacking. Now we need to change that after a bad result and they will be plenty of good teams coming from the den after losing by a goal

17 Sep 2017 13:19:59
Wex that's what I'm saying when it works it's great, when it doesn't we get totally pounded. It's a learning curve that TC is having, when to use that formation and when not to. I'm sure he'll have learnt a lot from yesterday

17 Sep 2017 13:25:41
Still am a fan of the way we play wex, never said I wasn't, not every team is going to 'let' us play, millwall started strong, bullied us more or less all over the pitch, saiz, Hernandez and alioski were virtually anonymous, some games it may be that we need to get a foot hold in the game And introduce them off the bench once the game has opened up and calmed down.

17 Sep 2017 13:30:56
Sounds sensible to me. TC knows what he's doing, after all look at what he did in his interview, pulling the team and performances apart from
LAst season, so I am sure he'll sort it

17 Sep 2017 19:21:38
I think curahe is a basketball fan.

17 Sep 2017 19:26:51
I really really hope we don't hit a bad run because some folk will start blaming the formation/manager/left back and anybody else. let's enjoy being top of table with some top notch performances so far. MOT
