Hi everyone UTV
I have wanted to write this post since the Liverpool game but I thought I would leave it a little longer to see what developed as I was pro 4-3-3 but am now swaying away from that after Newcastle.
Now here it is my case for 4-4-2.
I was shocked in the first halves of the Liverpool and now Newcastle games.We seemed to have no get up and go and have been sloppy giving away possession.No penetration and no end product at the end of our attacks.Our CMs gave the ball away to cheaply and so did our full backs.
Our full backs have been bombing forward exposing the back 2 and also exposing space behind themselves.This leaves us wide open for pacey forwards and good counter attacking football.
We seem to be always conceding and never keeping a clean sheet and our home form is a no show IMPO.
I know Lambert seems to know what he is doing so I think if he can’t see it by now then we are in the mire.
I think 4-4-2 would be the right way to go at this point.We need shape,stability,organisation,width and less goals conceded.I feel the 4-4-2 formation would give our young firecrackers all of this plus giving much needed protection to our full backs and have 4 in midfield in front of our back four.
I know Lambert wants to play nice football but when you have young inexperienced players who come up against the Premier Leagues experienced finest an open formation can be football suicide.
I really feel a 4-4-2 of
Guzan,Lowton,Vlaar,Clark/Baker,Luna,Agbonlahor,Westwood,Delph,Albrighton,Kozak,Benteke(Weimann contesting striker position) would be better.
I think Nzogbia would have a part to play to contesting the LM position.Would Bacuna or Tonev fit into the LM or RM positions?.
I just think this would stabilise,give shape,width and protection a good starting block for the younger lions what are your opinions?
All the best UTV….
