  1. You can't play that formation with 2 holding midfielders, unless your instructions are clearly for the wing back to basically play as outside forwards, as otherwise you leave the attacking players isolated. We hasld so many players deep we literally invited our own demise, WBA did not start the game pressing our defense, but as we have so many players deep we are playing 15 to 20 years deeper than we should be, they worked this out within the first 10 minutes and began to advance themselves compressing the game. Yes the first 3 goals came from individual errors, but they are directly caused by the tactics as the first 2 are caused by players trying to play too deep, and by the time the third comes about West Brom are playing much higher than they started and pressing with ease.
  2. Agree, he has been part of a midfield that had been overrun on a weekly basis for 4 years, just like pack, love him to bits but if we want to kick on should not be in the side.
  3. Yea I don't think he is realistic, although while watching the Man Yoo game was thinking what's Leon Clarke up to these days? Can Deffo score at this level and doesn't seem to have had much of a sniff this season or the back end of last season, not sure if he's injured through.
  4. Indeed I remember having many a disagreement with him over the academy, it is a shame that he didn't get to see what the academy would eventually become. There were some proper characters back then, East dudndry red was always a good poster, could never keep his emotions in check though.
  5. Exactly major, how many other unsuspecting animals were "milked" before someone was thought "well these are all shit" I wonder what that ruddy great cow's milk will be like?
  6. Spot on, but it's the same with competitive offence, its just sad to be honest.
  7. Don't get all the furore to be honest, sterling is clearly still hurting from the defeat, takes a comment from Gomez the wrong way ends in a scuffle the aggressor gets punished, seems perfectly reasonable to me, same will happen at clubs, players will suddenly have an unspecified knock when they've had a barney with a team mate. Southgate doesn't have that option as its obvious Sterling is not injured and you don't just drop your best player for no reason, so it had to be public really.
  8. Indeed, this whole fawning over the poppy is very strange, it's a relatively new thing that has come out of nowhere. I remember as a kid some people used to wear poppies some didn't and nobody cared, now it seems as if people are derided for not wearing them. I couldn't care less of rovers wanted to change the colour of the poppy as long as they take part in the remembrance, as that is all the should ******* matter, not some people's thin skins on behalf of others. If rovers wanted to encourage their fans to disrespect the silence then fair enough, but jesus christ who cares what colour the poppy is as long as they honour the fallen?

    Then it's a free kick to Liverpool, you can't play advantage ignore a blatant pen and just let the game cary on. Only 2 decision that can be given there, neither are a goal for Liverpool.
  10. Indeed, also look at the way he gets elite players to buy into his philosophy, at all his clubs the work ethic that he instills is crazy, and like Aguero he can even get players who aren't perhaps naturally inclined to play that way to buy into his philosophy is why he will go down as one of the greats.
  11. I would say on here that is true, but there are a section of the AG crowd that could certainly be termed that way, the absolute melts who cheered him being subbed against Leeds and we're giving him plenty of stick before hand, I would say are not people just don't rate him. No problem with people not rating players but we have as long as I have been going had a section of our support who will always decide on a scapegoat and get on their back almost no matter what.
  12. Oh yea agree totally, the only reason it can be taking so long is that Stoke want to assess him as well as he's basically finished there so their only hope of getting anything back is that he performs for us.
  13. Not really sure that Murray knowledge of league 2 is going to help much on MOTD unless Macclesfield suddenly find themselves in the prem. I like Colin Murray but if you compare him hosting the highlights on quest to MOTD its night and day.
  14. His daughter is as it was her who founded BET365, Coates himself is worth less than lansdown.
  15. The whole point of the show is entertainment, if I just wanted highlights I could just watch them on sky well before MOTD. So I would argue yes the viewing figures probably would drop of you had some plum hosting MOTD. Just like commentators matter so do presenters, for example as a neutral I will be watching precisely 0 of the Champions league games that that utter nause that is Clive Tyldesley is commentating on as he's the worst commentator on TV by a mile. Same way many less people watch football on ITV if it is also on the BBC at the same time.
