With what is available, how does Gerrard change it?


Recommended Posts

Think we as playing square pegs in round holes.

If Roofe and Morelos are playing it has to be both through the middle. Neither are wide men. If Hagi plays must be central not wide. We played a diamond a few times last season and it worked well. Why not again?

Think our tempo really has to improve... In attack we have shown it this season in short spells where we look decent moving the ball at pace and stretching the opposition. 

We are giving teams to long to set up in defence and a bank of 4 and 5 is always going to be tough to break down. 

Winning the ball higher up the pitch and harder pressing against teams  would also help so when we get the ball back we don't have 2/3 of the pitch to their goal.

I actually don't know. 

We've definitely become too predictable and there is no balance in our side now. 

It's almost American Football-esq in terms of an offence and defence with absolutely nothing in between. The other major issue is we have nobody playing well. 

It's frankly a miracle that we're top of the League but sadly I don't see that lasting much longer.

celtic will go top on Saturday and they'll still be there on Sunday by goal difference.

What's frustrated me this season with Gerrard is, here we have a man who built his reputation as leaving everything out on the park, watches our players week after week put in half arsed performances, yet continues to play the same players :confused:

Simple question??, not so simple answer.

We have been way way short this season so far, nobody will argue that iam sure, we've got away with a few games by the skin of our teeth, mainly Hibs at home, stjohnstone, Dundee, St mirren away.

Any ideas on how he turns this round with what is available?

Probably mentioned 100’s of times by now but keep a settled keeper. Patterson over tav and for the love of Christ a CH the one position we said pre season we needed! 
 

 

plus sides. Kent and jack to come back I’m not giving up just yet but fuck me no subs when it’s not working is enough to test anycUinCourt’s patience

Need to try and get Tav and Barisic further up the pitch - Barisic looks knackered this season and is no where near as effective. Tav is struggling to cross the halfway line - Last year he was popping up in the box/scoring etc.

Midfield is sitting to deep and in turn the attackers are isolated - Our pressing out of possession this season is deplorable. We normally pin teams back and nick the ball but this season every team appears to have a man extra all over the park and are picking us off as they move forward.

Morelos needs to be right on the last man - Stop dropping deep it’s not working. 

Whoever sanctioned Ittens loan should be getting asked questions - The only striker we had that offered something different to change a game.

Get runners  like Arfield on from the start and not cameo appearances and expecting miracles.

Our summer recruitment looks poor at this stage - 

Sakala looks like a project, Lundstram after a few better performances was rank tonight - Even getting Wright in early last year hasn’t worked as he’s not kicking on, Jack Simpson has been woeful in his few appearances.

Here’s hoping Kent, Jack and Helander are back sooner rather than later….

I would not trust Wilson to identify any talented player.

We haven’t made a worthwhile signing since summer 2020. The two Bournemouth boys must be the worst double signing ever (no fault of Ofoborh’s tho)

For those saying we haven’t hit our form yet, maybe we have and we just refuse to believe it.

Spot on. Last season this squad of players played well above their normal levels, got a good run of form going which romped them to the title & deserved the massive praise they got

Now they're back to the usual performances that they've delivered through their respective careers & it's showing, we're bang average at best & if something doesn't change very quickly we'll lose the title.

Change the sytem to go direct, especially at home  Tonight we were outnumbered in midfield and had 1 striker up against 3 centre backs one of the few times tonight we were direct we won a penalty from it. We're in Scotland. Save the 4-3-3 for Europe when our performances domestically are awful and badly needing a change.

For a start - Drop Tav.
Give Patterson a run. 
move Balagun to left back, call back Katic 

Don’t play Aribo and Kamara together our midfield has absolutely no dig and is toothless 

Our squad depth is shite, there’s absolutely no chance of Sakala or Wright becoming starters, they are not even very good impact subs ffs. 

Gerrard has stopped playing our LB and RB high up the pitch with them being used like wingers. There was more than one occasion tonight Tav, Bassey didn’t take to their heels, preferring to check inside or back. This used to be our most dangerous attacking option. He’s stopped that for some reason. Meaning our LB /RB have to become traditional defenders which they are clearly not very good at. 
 

our defence is a fucking circus.
