  1. That exactly it.He is trying to copy the Liverpool system of 433 ,which is fair enough.The difference lies in how the front 3 are deployed.The Liverpool front wide men are constantly coming inside into the box when the play is on the opposite wing.Our wide men are constantly on the line (probably because our full backs are hopeless defensively) which leaves us with an isolated striker usually against two ,sometimes three defenders.We are not implementing the 433 system properly and it's not just down to the players
  2. We can't just keep bringing in players.We needed a Manager/coach who could improve players,who was tactically astute and who could bring on youngsters .Instead we got a rookie" big name" glamour appointment designed to get the "place jumpin ".The type of appointment which has failed so often all over world football. I said all this last year and the scenario is working out just as I thought.An initial burst of euphoria resulting in some decent results then gradually running out of ideas when faced with challenges.We are now behind the eight ball as we can't afford to get rid of Gerrard even if we want to unless he decides to quit ,which is unlikely.
  3. Take a big piece with you ,this ones going to penalties
  4. This is it.Any successful team playing 433 need their wide players coming inside and interchanging with the main striker.look at Man City,Liverpool, even St Pats ,all have wide players and midfielders who contribute plenty of goals.we have wide players who generally stay on the line and cross the ball into the box for a lone striker usually surrounded by opposition players.Madness
  5. Once again the manager is hoping for a "reaction".Fuckin ding dong get me out this movie

    Don't see any evidence at all that Gerrard is going to be a top manager.Yes we need to give him another couple of windows but for me the signs are not good,.The team is no better than previous years,the same mistakes repeated game after game and the same excuses and pleas for "reactions " trotted out after nearly every game.I hope I'm wrong but I really don't see it with Gerrard.
  7. Not sure it's a no 10 .More a goal scoring midfielders in my view .Look at the return St Pats get from their midfielders and wide players in the goal scoring stakes,that is where the big difference is between the sides is.All our midfielders are similar,tidy on the ball ,decent in the build up but completely hopeless around the opposition box
  8. The only player in the team who won his Physical battle with his opponent.Very concerning that the team were not Up for it once again in a crucial match.
  9. Could have done with McCrories Physicality beside him today.Jack and Arfield weren't at the races and Worral was the only player who matched his opponent physically all over the field
  10. Halliday for Barasic .Despite last nights results this is going to be one helluva battle from start to finish and we will have to be "on it" from the word go.Stewart is their danger man and we need to stop his crosses into our box ,Barasic failed to do this in the last game up there, so Andy in for me if fit.Think this will go to a replay 1-1
  11. Sorry but I've yet to see this cavalier footballer your describing.I see a player who is timid,short of pace ,and uncomfortable when one on one defensively.He may turn things round but I really doubt it.Halliday will be our left back for the remainder of the season if The managers reactions are anything to go with

    Tidy player no more no less. The midfielder we need badly is not there at the moment.We need an aggressive goal scoring player, making late runs into the box and shooting from around 20yards from goal.St Pats have 3 such players in Rogic,McGregor and Christie who make these runs and contribute with goals and therein lies the biggest difference between the two sides
  13. He reminded me a lot of Wallace.Poor when faced up to a winger and completely unable to stop crosses coming into the box.Roasted by Stewart on Wed and it could have cost us.Halliday must play tonight
  14. Got to be kidding ,Barisic will get a roasting from any reasonable winger.Just pray he is not playing at the paedodome next month I'm having nightmares at the thoughti
