  1. Nice breakdown Snooty. The word on Jos has been that everywhere he's coached he uses a 4-2-3-1 and spreads it out. How does that one look? One of Hutch/Pelupessy with Bazza in front of the back 4? I could see that working nicely, but I don't know what the front looks like. Reach and Fessi for sure...if Lee is alive, maybe Reach between those two. Who up top? Perhaps this is a thread for the offseason. Edit: Here's a look at how he set up when Augsburg was promoted. I guess you could argue that's a 4-4-2...

    Team (3-5-2) if fully fit Squad

    Also, this is probably a better discussion for the offseason, but Luhukay has always played with a 4-2-3-1 everywhere he has been. I'd be stunned if we don't look for that next season (as much as I like a 3-5-2 and its flexibility.)

    Team (3-5-2) if fully fit Squad

    Were you there? I ask because I watched it on iFollow and it was tough to see. It looked like one of Hunt or Pudil was always advanced in attack. a 4-4-2 in defense and a 3-5-2 going forward (with Pelupessy back if both FB were up. But it was tough to see on TV.
  4. There was an attempt to get up to the PL in the first two years of FFP cycle and it almost worked. Sucks for us, but it didn't- it was a gamble that didn't pay off. We'll be fine in the long run, but we're now going to have a couple of years where we need to re-calibrate the squad. I see that as different than being poorly run, especially given the alternatives. What would you have had them do?

  8. @Bark1062- glad you got that right in the end. Ivana Trump: Ivanka Trump: I wasn't judging, but hey, to each their own..

    This is exactly what we needed

    You know what would be a one-off out of the blue occurrence? Not finishing top six under Carvahal.

    First half tactics

    The same midfield that took 7 of 9 points last week? i can see an argument that he could have done something different against the pigs and their midfield, but starting jones, lee, and Bannan has been working just fine.

    First half tactics

    Tactics don't exist when players can't complete a simple pass and a normally solid defence and keeper put in a shocking performance. I know it's always Carlos hunting season around these parts, but this one is on the players.

    The Wilder Factor

    United had the 4th highest value in League One last season- Wilder is absolute genius. Wednesday had the 5th highest value in the Championship- Carlos is rubbish. I don't know much about Wilder, it looks like he did very well making chicken salad out of chicken bobbar at the lower levels, and no doubt they're off to a very good start this season. I'd be more inclined to rate him after a couple of years in a real league, with legit big boy clubs. I won't be stunned if he does decent things with the pigs, but he needs more than 8 games to prove it. Tomorrow will be a good test for him.
  13. With Sporting he tied and lost to Benfica and beat Porto (he was hired after the first Porto game had occurred). Benfica ran away with the league that year. With Besiktas he tied and lost to both Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. So so not great.
