Romford , how many defensive players do you want on the pitch ? we had 7 to start with , playing a defensive 3-5-1-1 , playing 3 CB's Cresswell/Reid/Rice with Zabs/Evra as WB's ( thats another story WB's i am genuinely amused ) and Noble/Kouyate in the middle as the holding players aided by Lanzini. And then he sent on Byram as RWB and moved Zabs to a CB position , when we had a CB on the pitch in Kouyate , who should have been moved back there .
If you ask me he showed them to much respect , and showed he doesnt have any faith in our ability to win a game , playing creative attacking football . Thing is at the end of the day its all about opinions .
Only Kouyate i would call defensive when it comes to the middle....and we were defo short again in the centre of the park. I agree with Cheik as centreback...but then i would play him there all the time.
We didn't create anything...and didn't stop too much either. Thats not a great misture.
IMHO of course
