When teams park the bus, that's the time to do some long range shooting. A deflection, a fumble, a swerve. take a shot every now and again. Stop trying to walk the balll into the net as Bielsa seems to prefer. You got to be in to win. It is not as difficult as you may think. Fortune favours the brave.

It really the time to try and beat players 1 on 1. Try for being fouled and getting pens.
For the possession stats we have the number of pens is ridiculously low and that because we never try to beat the man.

when teams park the bus had a big man. how many crosses and corners go wasted as we offer as much danger in the air as snow white and the seven dwarfs. Belisa needs to be less stubborn and appraicte the ugly side of the game. If teams parked the bus against wilko chapman would of scored with his head. agsinst belisa it is so easy to get points.

When the bus is parked it is necessary for players to dribble past their opponent (as Canada has said) , particularly the wingers. By beating their man disrupts the defensive system as centre backs then need to move out of their comfortable position to close down the offensive player, which in turn creates additional space for attacking players to move into. Crosses floated into the box are meat and drink to the physical centre backs we come up against.

All points noted are relevant and dare I say make a good basis for a Plan B.

I’m with Canada and Notts on this one, that’s why I want to see Poveda given an opportunity, and maybe even Jordan Stevens.

CW and Notts have it right whereas the east London wordsmith reckoning is tossing the ball into the box will increase our goal scored ratio. Or is he saying bring back Chappers? 😉.

firstly i am from south london not east london (well offended east london is a dive) secondly george is the wordsmith i am the oricle (i mean come on get it right hey george? )

finally i don't think chucking the ball in the box will increase our goal ratio because we are P''s poor in the air. my point is the fact that we can't score from a cross or 500 corners is a huge weakness and dissadvantage. as far as i am aware a headed goal still counts as a goal and having someone like chapman or even wood would be huge when playing a team like luton/ wigan. etc and they park the bus

people say belisa knows better than us. but on this point i am sure i know better than him. next time that happens bring on even matt smith. it is a plan B and might, just might help us when belisa plan a go up the Shi@@er.

Can’t believe I said East. Thousand apologies.

Isn’t your mate Bamford decent in the air or do you believe he’s only good in the air when defending?

03 Jul 2020 14:21:06
appoligies accpected. i can take being called many things but east london is not one of them. rather be a man utd fan. ok maybe not that bad

I think bamford is our best defender in the air and most of our corners if defended are defended by him. i think that is more due to the teams weakness rather than his strenght. also when teams park the bus we are so slow in appraoch play that bamford is often crowded out so even if he was better than chapman he would sturggle i think.
