Then he put the striker right wing back, the CDM playing RB moved to CB as a young attacking mid came on and went RWB so the player who was ST then RWB went more central.
He really doesn't know his best XI our the players best positions yet does he?
I thought we looked "slightly organised" when basically 4-4-2 even with Norddisaster at RB and a bank of 4 (even though I though Obiang and Noble won next to nothing) in front of it after the opening 5 minutes.
Playing Antonio up top did exactly what it ssaid on the tin by having an outball over the top (actually thought he should have done better when he got a similar ball over the top earlier) and Ayew although contributing next to nothing attacking wise ran about a bit and at least put a bit of pressure on them in the final third.
That TOTALLY DISINTEGRATED when Carroll came on and Antonio went FUCK KNOWS WHERE.
In a heartbeat we had lost all mobility up front, put an extra man behind the ball which just confused us as suddely everybody was standing off them allowing them to come forward almost at will and on the occasions we did win the ball we had virtually no outball, at all (save the big hoof in the hope it hit Carrolls head)!!
Of course Slav tonight can claim justification and OF COURSE it great to have got a point.
Think you have to KEEP SIGHT of the fact that you mention though....IT WAS ABSOLUTE CHAOS virtually for the last 30 mins in a game where we had actually a decent foothold and a win was not out of the question.
Do I feel confident for the two 6 pointers this week?
If I thought he would keep a line up that would keep going forward and trying to press the opposition back then yes.
Sadly I dont see that although hopefully be proved wrong!!!
Surely we can play a high tempo pressing game for 90 mins against Burnley and Hull at home?
Slav played for a POINT second half and I thought his SUBSTITUTIONS were spot on tbh......It wasn't pretty but we got the point and more IMPORTANTLY everyone put in a 'SHIFT'......
Looks to "ME" like you're TAKING "the" PiSs, "OZ!!!!!@@@@@@####!!!!!!!
