After watching Spurs v Everton, two mediocre teams sending me to sleep . Nothing to fear there guys and they will both probably be top half . But Jose has managed to create a top five as Spurs are woeful with no passion or intensity regardless of it being the first game . Further thoughts on Saturday . I'm thinking against the top 5, unless we can get in some one like De Paul at ten who also has a love for the defensive side of the game , that Pablo or Roberts are luxuries we can't afford as when we don't have the ball, they don't get stuck in . This puts too much pressure on Klich and KP and led to our midfield being too easily by passed and our defense exposed to runners . So may be we move Klich to ten and draft in Shackleton in these games where we will have less of the ball?

RHC Klich is not a 10, but a very good number 8. You're wrong to dismiss Roberts who will probably improve and we were playing against the champions. We will fare better against lesser sides.

Tyler is a good player and still learning

Pablo has been magnificent. He earned enough respect surely not to be written off after one PM game

Leave decisions to MB and enjoy the ride

By this look of it the boss sees baby shacks as a player than can fill any midfield position and FB but more often number 8

Trust the process.

I like Roberts a lot and love Pablo . My point is in certain games against the very top teams when we are not in possession, they offer very little . So there is an argument for stiffening the midfield by adding Shackleton alongside Klich and Phillips in those games .

Rhc, . very premature. calling spuds a mediocre team, that's just down to Maureen he will be gone by xmas, they are a proper outfit being used horribly currently, that will change.

By the way it’s not like we haven’t set up that way before . First ten or so games last season . He played a midfield three of KP, Forshaw and Klich . I was frustrated with it as Forshaw duplicated KP’s role . Forshaw offered little going forward and we struggled against teams who sat back . But I’m advocating Shack in the Forshaw role who has more invention and only against the better sides in the division who will come at us hard . I can see MB doing something similar .

There’s no denying Liverpool were by far the best team in the country last year . No teams except Man City and Chelsea managed to scored 3 or more goals against them in the league, so how about judging our team on the 3 goals we scored and not on the how a couple of players were not as influential as usual, if they was we would have won by 3 goals, football has never been that simple . So why not enjoy the ride and not dissecting every performance . At least wait till the season settles down a bit and we know where we are instead of saying this player and that player can’t cut it after playing the runaway league winners .

Raggity did you actually read my posts?! No one is saying a player or players can’t cut it . This is a banter sight where opinions and tactics are meant to be discussed . My point is Tyler and Pablo are at their best when on the ball and we are dominating teams . Also for that matter when we are counter attacking in transition . But there may be times in the season like Saturday, when we are losing the midfield battle and they become dispensable .

Red agreed, the question should be asked can we continue to play like that all season with a very small group, I am not sure we can, we start very well but then it drops off.

very sensible posts in my opinion

Liverpool are a great team but have not been good since project restart. They conceded three at home twice on the bounce now for the first time since 76! so as good as we were to score three. so was the last team they played at Anfield.

no doubt we can play but soft goals (free kicks) and getting over run will cost us. losing 4-3 to Liverpool made us proud but what if we start losing 4-3 to spurs or worsts West Ham?

yes we won't concede two pens every game but we will concede corners and high balls. we also will not score with 100% of our shots like we did against liverpool

I love Pablo but can't see him doing much at his age in this league (he is a Demi god but even they age) and Tyler great prospect but as some say a bit of a luxury player

we need stiffer and more resilient midfield or we will concede every week.

I know I bang the kp drum but all will admit he is slow so him with pablo must be (a very talented midfield) but the slowest in the league by far. and that will cost goals every week. for me Shacks has to play or put Kp in pablo role with Stuijk in dm role with a better Cb than Cooper

without doing either of these things I fail to see many weeks where we won't concede at least two goals. and needing to score three every week to pick up three points is a dangerous game.
