Rotating your centre backs

Recommended Posts


Should never have broke up the Goldon and Katic partnership that looked so promising. 

Especially for a 21 year old who couldn't get in a Nottingham Forest side.

We have always had a big strong CH in all our great teams , Goldson is like a wee boy and was brutal tonight and fuck knows whats happened with Katic.

Katic looks like a completely different player. 

Incredibly bad at Hamilton and now tonight. 

To be fair to Gerrard Katic was out injured for a few of the games I'm sure.

As soon as Goldson is put under pressure he turns into rob kiernan

It’s the one area of the team that you should never chop and change unless it’s an enforced change and it’s ridiculous that we keep doing so

Goldson has looked dodgy ever since Worrall got put next to him beforehand he looked like an absolute wall and even a leader

Halliday, Jack, Rossiter and Sid have all had game time as CDM in the last few weeks and I know it was one game but he rotated Foderingham into the team as well. It's an area of the park you need to leave alone, how are the players meant to develop an understanding?

Hamilton, but aye. Think the defence across the board was pathetic tonight.

If they can't play as a two, try out a three. Especially considering it is obvious Tavernier doesn't want to defend anyway.

Starting him from the cold in an away game in Russia was always going to be tough

Goldson has been an accident waiting to happen for ages, seems to think he's a lot better than he actually is and nowhere near the physical presence he looked to be when we signed him. But will play on Sunday, probably alongside Worrall with Katic binned again. Or maybe McAuley will get his chance, can't be any worse than the rest of them.

Jack got injured early on which fucked us a bit but yeah, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we’ve looked shaky ever since we broke up the McGregor, Katic, Goldson & Jack core that started the season so well.

Agree.

Goldsons OG was a complete embarrassment.

To call it a schoolboy error would be offensive to Schoolboys.

This is where we became shite at the back. The one area you don't fuck about unless there's injuries

Never understood the hype the guy gets , hes a lightweight easily knocked off the ball. We need a big strong CB in the mould of a Butcher, Bougherra or Amoruso and build around him........

Worral against Rapid is a better defensive performance than we've seen from anybody else, and that game as a team was probably the same.

It's 3 players. It's not like we rotate between 4 or 5. They should be able to handle it.

Should been the 2 best performers until one goes off form for 2 or 3 games , Katic and Goldson were absolutely solid , Katic dropped for nothing against Villarreal and it’s been a riot ever since , swapping Katic and worrall all the time it’s causing us havoc

If it's easy to do why do you not see any other club do it? It's the most important partnership on the field and we are dicking around with it.
