    The 4-3-3 formation with Gabby, Benteke and Wiemann up front works well away from home, it didn’t work at Chelsea because we had bad luck and decisions went against us. It’s at home that it doesn’t work so well, hence the Liverpool and Newcastle results. I hope the tactics and formation have changed recently because they needed to and not just because injuries have necessitated it. I still have faith in the manager and like what’s going on at the Villa.

    after seeing 1st hand from the holte how narrow we were against Newcastle I thought omg if we play that way against city with nasri, navas and kolorov we’ll get slaughtered. I have been quite criticle at times re lambert tatically but I gotta say as badger said full credit must go to him for the shift in formations.
    Saturday we widened out play to cope with citys width, it would leave us light weight for scoring and Bacuna and Luna didn’t push up as high as usual especially 1st half, at 2-1 down he was going to switch up to a 4-4-2 bringing on tonev and Albrighton to try and get something meaning we could have shipped another couple of goals but at least we were going to go for it rather than damage limitation. as it goes as we all know it wasn’t needed 🙂
    considering our squad the ability to change it up a bit is a great thing, sometimes it will work and im sure sometimes not but so far so good.
