Thats how you play 4-5-1!

Pace, movement, possession, creativity, passing and attack, Holland just showed counter attacking football at it's best.

Two attacking full backs, two quick wingers, central midfielder's who have the ability to get forward and a striker who is a target, can hold the ball up and make something out of nothing.

I think two attacking fullbacks are key and it annoys me when people Papac should stay at leftback next season because "he's not let us down". We need someone there who can get forward in support and also be able to do his defensive duties.

Absolutely right mate! Fantastic game!

I am always happy when the Italians get humped!

Compare that to Italy and their formation, with absolutley no support to one of the best in the business at playing the lone striker role, no matter how good the striker is, he needs support all the time.

Very good point - 4-5-1/4-4-3 can be very attacking if you have the quality to play it correctly and the attacking fullbacks are so important. You never know, Whittaker might do it for us at RB - he is the right type of player. We desperately need more quality wingers though.

Of course it helps if your central striker is allowed to score blatantly offside goals.

And also a transfer kitty worth 100m ;)

Not really.

An attacking right full back like Mendy on a bosman. An attacking left back like Armand/Gardner on a bosman.

Bring in Davis- £3m

Someone like Varela on a bosman for wide right or spend some cash on Ziani or Behrami.

Bring in an attacking midfielder like Geovanni, bosman or Ivanschitz for a couple of million.

Spend a bit of money on a good striker and get rid of the likes of Cousin, Buffel, Hemdani....

Better than spending £1-2m here and there on 4,5 or 6 dumplings.

Walter is away on Holiday and forgot to set his sky+ box

Anti-Football Loyal :mutley:

He'll probably come back after seeing the Romania v France match and ask for a dvd of it.

With all respect mate these players are a good few rungs below players like snjeider, van Nistelrooy, van Persie, van der Vaart.

Also it is easy to mention players beause you like them but that doesn't mean they will make an attractive successful team.

I'm just giving examples, it's 100 times better than the Broadfoot's, Papac's, Dailly's, Adam's, McCulloch's, Boyd's......pish that we have

Of course it is. And I do agree with you i'd rather spend 8m on two players than 8 on 5!! we have been doing that for years.

Exactly, you'd think it's an impossible task trying to get this. It's actually pretty easy. All it takes is a bit of knowledge, time and hardwork.

The point is we need some class in the team especially in midfield and striker.

Better to spend 3-4m on two-three players and get that than 1.5m on 4 or 6 players. Plenty of mediocrity here already.

Fair point - but how many of the current Rangers side would get into the starting eleven for the Oranji?

Mibbe Cuellar?

No point in fantasizing about players in the euro championships, our scouts only cover the SPL.

They are probably all on holiday in Gretna the now looking for more ways to waste a few hundred k
