  1. But it’s not as if these players haven’t performed well and the manager wasn’t getting anything out of them at any point. Under Warburton and Caixinha, the team barely reached any standards at all. Just a couple of weeks ago, this group were amazing for 3 out of 4 halves against Braga and they played some great stuff in December in tricky away games. In the first half of the season, it looked like Gerrard had coached Jack to a level I didn’t think he could get to, Morelos was scoring every week and Barisic was unbelievable from October onwards. I just don’t get how it’s been such a drastic turnaround.
  2. But surely we wouldn’t have won the new year old firm game if that was the case? They bounced back from that pretty strongly throughout the whole of December.
  3. In theory, it should come from Kent, Jones, Ojo, Stewart, Murphy, Barker, Arfield and Aribo. Certainly plenty of options but a lot of them unproven, particularly in big games.
  4. That’s ridiculous. There are games where you can question his distribution but Goldson hit at least half a dozen right to Barisic today, particularly in the first half. Katic never plays it more than five or ten yards apart from when he’s clearing it because he’s not great technically but there are times when you need to be more ambitious and that brings more risk so Goldson is going to give it away more often.
  5. Foderingham Polster, Edmundson, Katic, Halliday King, Kamara, Docherty Stewart, Defoe, Barker

    Davis was playing in the same position tonight as he played in the last six games. Him central with Jack and Kamara either side.
  7. Kent has been the only one who looks even remotely dangerous and interested. Morelos looks like he doesn’t want to be there, Candeias is useless in these type of games and Jack and Halliday need to be in acres of space for them to turn or pass forward. Otherwise, they’re just happy to pass it back or sideways.
  8. Hasn’t looked out of place in the past few games but I’d be tempted to put Halliday back in. In this new formation, particularly with the forwards playing inside, the fact Flanagan is right-footed really limits us and gives us no width or option going forward on the left.
  9. According to Heart & Hand pod it was: Fod, Polster, McAuley, Worrall, Barisic, Coulibaly, Halliday, Dorrans, Grezda, Lafferty and Morelos.
  10. What about all the games prior to the break where we struggled to break teams down and dropped points? Everybody seems to have this recency bias where just because we played well in the old firm game using the 4-1-4-1 (the type of game that suits that formation) we should keep it. Davis and Defoe were brought in for a reason and it was to give us some more creativity and cutting edge in games like this.

    Followed by 2 games in the space of 9 days on plastic pitches!
  12. We are getting acres of space on the left. A bit of composure and quality and they are there for the taking.
  13. Think a change of formation is required for this one. Until we're able to sign more creative players, I think we need to go to 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 against the so-called 'easier' teams to try and get as many attacking players on as possible. If we're going 4-2-3-1 always have four of Kent/Middleton/Grezda/Morelos/Lafferty/Candeias on the pitch.
  14. Big block of seats just become available in GR5 if anyone is looking for tickets. I think it's the area where season ticket holders were asked to move for Uefa delegates etc.
  15. Fair enough. But I imagine he’s been warned before about his temper and unless he gets it in his head this won’t be the last time this happens.
