    Why is everyone so obsessed with pace?

    Football is always changing, over the last few years we have moved from having possession, to having good possession and actually creating things, teams are now focussing a lot more on the transition, either defensively or attacking. The better teams are the teams that on a transition anywhere on the pitch can hurt teams, Liverpool are the masters of the transition, for it to work and win you football matches you need pace, Salah and Mane. Man City are the best all round team in England, they have pace at both ends of the pitch, the pace at the back with Kyle Walker and Otamendi allows them to push higher, this is where the success comes from with the sustained attacks. The pace up top of Sterling and Sane also means they can kill teams in a positive transition. Wolves mastered it this year in the Championship.
  2. I would be looking for a couple of quick players, that way we can play 5 across the back away from home and still be a threat on the counter. Even having a couple of players who can shift on the bench for when you are leading by a goal and what to stick men behind the ball, quick players will force teams to sit deeper. Everyone saw the difference FF made to our team, yes he's quality but the main thing is he can beat people, we don't have many who can beat a defender or 2. We won't challenge the top 2 without it.
  3. Jamie Redknapp nailed it a month ago when he was talking about Swansea. They were set up to play on the counter but they had no pace up top or out wide despite having pace options on the bench and in the squad. I think CC is a decent man manager for the 11 thats playing, tactically he's awful and was found lacking in The Championship, never mind the Premier league. Jos might not have the character of CC but he's head and shoulders above him tactically.

    Looks powerful, perfect for England and is something we have missed.

    On FIFA 18, I was the England manager for the 2022 World Cup and Venancio was the captain of Portugal, just saying. Snap him up.

    He's cost us points keeping himself injury free. He needs to start putting his foot in. He loves and enjoys getting on the ball and looking pretty, doing the easy bit, if he was playing in my team I would be two footing him every day in trg until he starts looking after himself. He's got the ability to play at this level and influence games, he's probably got enough to play at the next level, he won't though unless he toughens up.

    Mate, I have seen some absolute garbage pull on a Wednesday shirt over the years, but I can forgive a lack of ability if they make up for it with commitment and desire, they cant make themselves play better but they can effect the game in other ways. What I will never accept is a player with reasonable ability not willing to do the dirty work and costing us points. One of my players a few months ago pulled out of a tackle on the half hour mark, he didn't come out for the 2nd half and he's not played since. Creative players still need to play with commitment and desire, that is what Reach is lacking.

    I think its a good post mate, makes sense.
  9. Love this topic. We still coach in reference to numbers, a number is a position, it doesn't matter what number you have on your back. Many years ago everyone went with a 4-4-2. 2 - RB 3 - LB 4 - DM 5 - CB 6 - CB 7 - RM 8 - CM 9 - CF 10 - 2nd ST 11 - LM It was much more simple then. Playing 4-2-3-1 with 3 number 10s get interesting.

    Unbelievable. Adam Reach CAN tackle, he doesn't have some sort of medical condition that prevents him from making a tackle, he chooses not to tackle in case he hurts himself, at school we called it nesh. He's a professional footballer, god knows how he got to this point being so shy of a tackle. He's not a bad player but if he doesn't start showing more commitment to the sport then he will slowly drop down the leagues. He's like a boxer with great footwork but doesn't throw punches.

    Do you mean he gets more touches in the centre or more time on the ball? Players get more time on the ball in wide areas.
  12. I think Jordan is having a few problems mentally, he always looks down and his body language isn't right. I kind of hope thats he's just crap, hope he's not suffering with any sort of health problem.

    Players starting to come back

    In truth with a fit squad we are a top 6 outfit. This season we have had, Westwood, Hunt, Lees, Lee, Bannan, Hutchinson, Forestieri, Hooper and Fletcher out for long periods, thats 9 starters. I still think we need a top left back and a couple of pacey players up top or outwide.

    Nuhiu’s most productive season with us?

    Very good today, he now needs to go into the next game with the same desire. Atdhe's had good games before then gone missing for a dozen. Earn that new contract big man.
