Why change the formation

Recommended Posts

Why did we start 442/4411? 433 has looked like it could work well for us and with nando on the left side and Harris on the right side that gives us chance for them to get the ball in positions where they are more threatening. 

 

Then changing the formation to 3 at the back and putting Harris left wing back was an absolute joke. Why not just put reach to left back and play 433 again. 

 

I wanted Bullen to get the job but I feel he has cost himself it today unfortunately.

Shouldn't have changed formation to include Forestieri, think he bowed to the pressure of the fans complaining about his lack of gametime.

So he could keep everyone happy.

 

It’s so clear that Bullen is trying to keep everyone happy and is unfortunately sacrificing performances and points to do this

Forestieri could have slotted straight in the left wing position. Harris right putting crosses in with stronger foot.

Exactly. Left side is perfect for Forestieri, he doesn't want to defend, Fox doesn't want to attack plus Forestieri can cut onto his right for shots.

It was like watching someone play Football Manager.

Sad to say, but its because Bullen isn't a manager. Naive, inexperienced and doesn't IMO control the players and demand respect as anything other than a coach. 

 

It's like letting a nurse have a go at heart surgery because they've seen surgeons do it for the last 6 years.

Bullen doesn't seem to command the respect of the players by his own admission. In post match interview with Radio Sheffield he said he told them what to do before the game and during it and they didn't do it. He also said they'd played in second gear and not given their all. 

It speaks for itself.

He didn’t know what to do. The 343 he tried to play ended up being more a flat back 5. We couldn’t get out. QPR well and truly deserved 3 points today

Forestieri doesn't want to play left wing or whatever. Wants to be centre id attention then ends up flopping and producing jack poo .. abject

He was probably the one slight bright spot today.

 

The only time we looked like creating anything was when he was involved.

Personally I think he was horseshit today

 

2nd half he was invisible

Was stunned to see we'd ditched our system.

 

Midfield completley and utterly exposed second half.

It's the personnel as well as formation - we lack players with presence, energy and pressing all over the pitch - been like this for 4 years.

Let’s not forget the Burton Albion 0-3 embarrassment under Bullen either, people have very short memories.

This. Games are won and lost in central midfield and ours was pathetic today particularly in the 2nd half.

 

Time and time again when possession turned over there was literally nobody in there, giving QPR time and space to pick their passes. Absolutely unbelievable at this level of football that this can happen.

Including the “fans” I think.

 

I’m sure he takes too much notice of the goons on twitter

Yeah it was just FF fault we lost today. Not one of the players came out with any credit. The set up was wrong and as for the substitutions / change of formation; mind boggling.
