For me, if you are looking to flood the box, you need to get in round the back first.

Very rarely can you get in round the back early doors. Hard tackles round the edge of the box soften teams up and leave them susceptible to their defences being penetrated. Once you've opened them up and flooded the box then you can get round the back. A 2 pronged attack usually leads to your goal.

"Prepare to fail" 

Let's not beat about the Bush...

Fulham need a good fingering in the first five to ten minutes ...

Then the floodgates will open .....

We'd need to continuously keep banging it in there.

The harder it is the better, it makes you bang it harder and harder, get the pitch nice and wet and then slide in longer and easier, 

 

before you know it you will be showered in glory and laying on top of each other fully satisfied and not knowing which are arms or legs as your teams mates then pile on for more

Flooding the box, we haven’t done that for along time come to think of it neither have I.

Coming in round the back to flood the box can be a dangerous tactic.

 

 

 

You always run the risk of one member of the team being slapped down.

Good to see someone steering this thread back on track. 

 

When the other one's been left wide open and exposed, then, and only then should we concern ourselves with unloading everything we have into their box.

It's all about the build up play. Plenty of work around the box is needed before you just go rampaging round the back. Their defences will be strong and that can lead to a player being denied or worse, deliberately injured. Patience is the key, you have to slip one in while their attention is elsewhere.

Do we have the stamina to go box to box?  I don't we can keep it up for the whole game.

 

Come on you blues.

 

Fulham will be craving for cottaging.

The trouble with players going box to box is it tends to get very messy.

Obviously all this talk is easy when your playing scunthorpe away. Different proposition when it's arsenal at home.

Which ever style we choose to adopt. It's all about the delivery. Long balls or short balls, it shouldn't matter. Find an opportune moment for a gap, and get into the channels.

I personally think we won’t get started to go in front and we’ll have to come from behind. 

 

And that will depend if we can spread the balls across their backline.

In a 433 have we got the midfield to go into their box and flood it?

 

Against Fulham for instance .. can we get the penetration to continually enter the box and flood it?

We flooded the pitch several years ago and that didn't help.

If we get in or around the box, we can slip a cheeky one in. With the quality we have that few seconds of penetration can cause moments of bliss for us and 90 minutes of despair for the opposite
