Against Brentford we left 2 up when where defending corners. I think we'll see similar today.

I don't think we've permanently changed our philosophy, otherwise the youth & u23's would also have changed & they haven't. We'll be back to 433 today.

We've toyed with 532 simply been because we haven't had the players to choose from, unless we're saying we be playing El Ghazi.

I'd leave 2 right on the halfway line pushed right out to the wings and have it as the 2 quickest players in the team. On top of that I'd have someone with a good touch and decent range of passing float in the space about 20-25 yards from goal with the job of getting the ball forward quick if it comes to the edge of the box. Bailey and Watkins as the 2 and Luiz as the 3rd would be my first choices.

Yep, he's no use marking in the box anyway.

None of them are whilst we continue to use zonal marking.  So easy to get around.

I haven't seen us kick off like that in 40 years. Booting the ball into the corner?
I rest my case.

He is a malevolent and toxic influence that will see the manager out of a job.

More genius innovations from our long-haired genius. Bailey taking throw ins. Both went straight to a West Ham player. Innovation canned.

Well I guess he's got Matty Cash throwing about 5 yards further, and faster and flatter than at the start of the season. The difference was notable today and presumably it's a definite tactic. However it was worrying how much I thought a throw in was a good opportunity for us today ☹️
There was definitely an element of kicking the ball towards the touchline up the field to increase the likelihood of a long throw in. We went very Wimbledon at times and certainly not great to watch.

Let's hope he doesn't watch a video of Harry Kane taking corners at a Euro's or we might see Olly taking them soon. I've seen nothing to suggest he's worth employing long term. Lose O'Kelly and Terry and replace with the son of Pulis. Garbage appointment.

Get him out of the football club immediately and bring in a proper coach.

Absolutely ridiculous appointment. Terry and ROK for this clown. Something isn't right and I said it months ago and got ridiculed.

I have a feeling this guy is part of the problem…and if not, then he’s definitely responsible for some really shit non league standard tactics we’re seeing over and over again. Get rid.
