  1. Two players with absolutely zero end product...
  2. Looks like we learnt absolutely f all tactically from the last game....
  3. In an attacking role we didn’t need to defend as they couldn't get out of their own half, which is surely the best form of defence for us at the moment... He sat him back in the 2nd half and we were under pressure, but the game was won by then...
  4. When he is playing behind midfield he isn’t as effective IMO... However I really do think that we’ve F00ked a lot tactically since CC took control with failing to capitalise on the players we’ve got... For instance Joao was brilliant with through balls and a fast attacking team, but we then played defensive bore tactics. To destroy him, J Rhodes is a player who needs a big man with him upfront and crosses to be effective, but we play him as a lone striker and get nothing from him, FF was also a player who thrived on a fast attack and we forced him to stay (rather than sell for big bucks) as a
  5. He’s been our stand out player for a while, but not played effectively in his holding role behind midfield... He needs to be played in an attacking position feeding through balls to 2 (not 1) strikers...
  6. We set up a team to defend then we will be absolutely be destroyed... If we set up an attacking team then I think we will turn them over... The clear fact is that our best defence has/ is attacking football... Even when we were challenging we couldn’t sit back and hold onto a lead...
  7. The only good attacking Carlos teams were when he let the team pick itself... It cost us automatic first year when he jumped in and definitely the following year...
  8. I was at that game and some lads who turned up late asked us the score... Then when we told them walked a few more rows before asking someone else the same, as they though we were taking the ********...
  9. My Dad is cynical and saying it’s because they are up for a move at the end of the season... Whereas I’m going with that the fact the team was set up based on exploiting the players skills such as reach, Bannan and Rhodes who scored again...
  10. I’ve never liked him, but I’ve just said the same to my wife....
  11. We set up tactically today based on effectively utilising the players that we have rather than what we’ve done for the last 3-4yrs, which is buy proven players for big bucks/ wages and then pigeon hole them into the team e.g. J Rhodes who is still the most prolific Championship player, but only when in a 2 man attack and crosses played into the box... So we then have him has a lone striker... Joao was great with through balls and fast attacks, but we had him as a lone striker with negative backward side2side crappy football... Then B Bannon is great for us in a forward midfield role attacking,
  12. Maybe basing our tactics on the players skills rather than pigeon holing them into crappy tactics is the way forward...
  13. Then as soon as I post this we score... I’m really not sure what I should do now....
  14. Are SWFC reading my posts and then changing tactics accordingly?!??
  15. I’ve always thought Bannan is far more effective in an attacking role rather than what we have mainly seen since CC’s tactics...
  16. Even if he’s finished with the club on a personal level he’s still not going to walk away from it now with us being next to worthless due to FFP after investing so much money...
  17. He’s invested heavily into the club and he has been scuppered with FFP rules... You could argue with hindsight that he’s made errors in failing to sell players/ change managers/ appointed poor managers/ unsuccessful players at the right time along with being unlucky/ misguided in his loyalties... However he’s spent money and even if unhappy he’s not going to recover that unless we get back to the premiership...
  18. Yet we’ve still many players from his tenure still here...
  19. We should be in the PL with our good years challenging for a CL position, the FA or league cup and in bad years floating above relegation... We shouldn’t be in the championship fighting for survival and dropping into league 1 and enduring pub football.... I know that there are many factors that have contributed to our downfall/ lack of success over the last 20yrs+ (arguably more), but we now deserve to be back in the PL where we belong... FFS Chelsea/ Man City weren’t even as big as us the last time we’re in the premiership and are now considered European super clubs through foreign investment
  20. When we looked good he was more forward and feeding balls through, but since CC tactics he’s moved further and further back... He also turns back to easy and plays the easy short ball rather than a through ball... However he’s still by far our best player IMO.... The concern for me is Harris who is an absolutely skilful player and makes great runs, but is then unable to provide an end product (cross/ pass/ shot) so it’s all absolutely pointless... Then you’ve A Reach who aside from the odd worldy goal (in a blue moon) is far to weak in challenges and again fails to provide an end product... On
  21. Also my theme, but the FFP rules and (with hindsight) misjudgement on when to sell players/ appoint/ get rid of managers is a contributing factor... Misguided loyalty by DC and then embargoes (tied hands)/ free transfer of out of contract players is a result...
  22. L1 is a tough league to get out of as it’s completely different to the championship in terms of standard of football, which again (the Championship) is completely different to the Premiership... I fear that we could be down there for some time whilst rebuilding a team and then after promotion from L1 suffering again for years to build a promotion team to the premiership... Even then we’d be lucky to last more than a year in the premiership, as has been the rule...
