My Son has been fit for little more than a foster home for most of the season. Pathetic.
@Tolahs, granted 3 points followed Beloved back to the big city, but anyone suggesting the team looked at ease in the system is misguided by the result and the result alone. The defending in the channels by the outer centres and the covering of the wide forwards in the defensive phase was reminiscent of Sam Peters' cover up vs Klitschko. Better to go back to what the players know, irrespective how sh*t they've been in all shapes. If anything, a 4-4-2 would be the better option, give Winston Delroy Sane a one manned wing to run at and it'll be a repeat of the Vaseline-free buggering issued earlier this season.
4-4-2 with Mustafi shouting at teammates for the full ninety and its a done deal.
North London derby final? But then again, it's Tottenham vs Chelsea at Wembley. Operative word being, Wembley .
No team on planet earth will be ease in a new formation even a confident squad. Going back to what the players know as you suggest is to pretend we weren't being slaughtered in that system. 4-4-2 call has to be a joke - we don't have the industry you need from the front 2 to even go there plus you're outnumbered in midfield vs Pep's ManC?
I'll rather play a system with 3 central defenders on the pitch - less defensive duties for speedy FBs & a defensive couple midfielders in Coq & Elneny to shield the backline & help compact the pitch.
