How long does it take for the dust to settle on a loss that included even the Boss saying that no-one had been convincing?
I was there and sadly my team looked unable to mount a convincing attack. This comment from GoonerB eloquently suggests that the tactics of the team selection were to blame.
Raddy your earlier comment about lobbing balls into the box. I feel the presence of Giroud invites us to attack in this way. It seems the support cast all want to play a different way but at the last minute dont see the opportunity so resort to this more basic final ball. I dont think a big less mobile forward really suits us, whoever it is, and the natural way we want to attack breaks down on this.
Micky, your question answers the other main problem for me. Ozil just starting to look the deal at number 10 so lets put him on the left mostly? Cazorla forming a good partnership with le coq so lets put ramsey there instead,who is not as good bringing the ball out from deep, and push cazorla into more Ozils role? Winning games with the quicker striker so lets change to the slower striker?
Aaaahhhh. With Ranieri back do we now have 2 tinker men in the epl? I dont care if its in room 101 but….square pegs in round holes….it is deja vu to early last season when we did the same thing and were looking disjointed.
Square pegs in round holes again!!!
I love AW but he’s going to have his work cut out for himself this week.
There were times yesterday when shots at goal were taken and there was a better option. I love it that we’re taking shots again instead of always trying to walk the ball into the back of the net but ………… can we expect to go back to 30 passes before someone shoots?
If only a couple of those chances had gone in in the first half it would have been a different story.
Maybe Benzema will come and AW can fine tune the balance and learn to use his squad instead of squeezing them all in 😉
