Personally, i'd sooner see us bring in the 2023 version of John Fashanu and Vinny Jones and just lump the fucker forward into the box all game and kick the opposition at every opportunity than watch us fanny about with it like that in our half. Av it !

Seriously though, i want Emery to play to the current players strengths or buy in the exact players he needs to play his way and get results playing decent football. If the players we have can't do what he wants them to for the rest of the season he shouldn't try it. Leicesters first goal was one of the most embarrassing i've seen us give away, we looked a right bunch of chumps. He has of course got a hell of a lot right so far though.

The thing about that is that Kamara usually can do it, and has looked good doing so. With Martinez being the other part of the issue for that first goal, then you'd be proposing we ditch our two best?

Rodri has been at fault for a few similar goals Man City have conceded recently. I cant seem them deciding to lump it up to Haaland. Having at least one centre half very comfortable on the ball is critical though, we don't have that. Need Carlos back fit asap.

I have very recently been on this journey with my home club. Last season we employed a Spanish manager and the possession football and playing it out from the back was immediately deployed.

Our back four are obviously less skilled than Villa's and it has been a very stressful transition to say the least. Over time, though, the heart attack inducing moments have been steadily reduced. Not gone away, to be sure, but they are far less frequent and I hope when the new season starts in April we'll be more comfortable still.

Nigel Spink, rolls the ball to Platty,
he moves it onto Paul McGrath and onto Tony Daly,
Tony Daly down the wing like a torpedo,
puts the ball up in the aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrr…………
for Tony Cascarino… ( to balloon over the bar….)

Martinez, rolls the ball to Tyrone,
He moves it on to Ezri Konsa, and gets it back again,
Kamara sidles into the box and gets it,
and slips and trips over the ballllllllllllll,
and we concede again......

I much preferred the random element of hoofball to all this tippy tappy nonsense.

Football is so dull these days!

When did you last see someone bury one from 40 yards? Game's gone.

Also don't like all the subs.

Bring back the days of having to stick an outfield player in goal if your keeper gets injured.

Wonderfully, brilliantly crap!

I agree with you regarding attacking play, but I'm not sure that building up from the back means that still cant be a deployed. I really don't enjoy watching Manchester City or Spain play because despite having good technical players you want someone to hit a screamer.

But Liverpool and Manchester united played out from the back and still were able to play quick and entertaining attacking play.

I agree with you mrfuse, never enjoyed watching Spain either but there's surely a balance to be found.

I caught Man United at Spurs on Saturday from 1979 and Bailey was rolling out short then so Man United could play out from the back. Nothing new under the sun.

Liverpool used to do it all the time, then they'd roll it back to Grobelaar and the repeat the process constantly for the rest of the game the boring bastards.

Easier back then though when the keeper could pick it up if required.
