So then, tell me what mw can do to get this team to play better, that you don't think he hasn't tried himself already. And remember no money for new players, so it has to be with the players and team he already has.

Therefore, do you think the team he has at the minute is a top 10 team or a relegation battle side?

Agree0 Disagree0

Set them up playing a simple system and do the simple things well.
Play Lichaj and get over it!

Drill a defence hard and stop playing with bridcutt because as far as I can see he's been everywhere the ball hasn't. I'm sure he used to be a foot taller?


Keep the same team and formation every game.

Work like crazy to press the ball.

Let's be honest. Who thought playing like Barcelona would work in this league?

In short. . Rebuild the confidence after his crazy departure into fantasy football.

No22. Bournemouth did quite well playing in the Championship using the ball on the ground.

get goal keepers keeping goal,defenders defending, midfielders midfielding and strikers striking :) if defenders (and the GK) are not comfortable or capable of playing the ball out,don't do it all of the time. its great to watch if players can play that way and I like the idea of us implementing it for the long term, but you cannot practice this and expect it to work in what is a very competitive league. Work it through the academy and we'll hopefully see the benefits in the future but MW does need to be a bit more realistic with some of the players abilities.

Why is there no money spent just half of britts money more season tickets bigger seeing more sponsors coming through reduced wage bill yes we can't spend 30 mill on a new defence doesn't always take mega money to get a good player look at McKay I'm sorry but this defence has played under several managers with several different tactics all leaked goals bottom line there not good enough.

Before the increased Season Cards, so forth and so on we were selling players and still losing Millions, not Thousands. The increased income only covers a partial amout of the loses, the full recovery of the club is going to take years unless the team strikes lucky and reaches the Premiership soon, which is unlikely. Do not forget the club went after players other than the one's that arrived, one goalkeeper decided to stay where he was,and another went from international duty straight back to Bournemouth with a recurrence of his knee injury. We also had a lad stay with Luton, so forth and so on. Our problem is not like us having a headache where we buy something then a couple of hours later the problem is resolved, we are in a financial mess but things are getting better.

Its a great question and somehere amoungst these post lies the answer. Villas first gial came from a ball played from defence to a strike coming off his marker. My concern is that MW who was not a great player is trying to tell good footbwllwrs how to play. He appears to favour zonal marking which in reality means forget the ball and your oppenent and shirk responsibilty. Warbs has spent well and we have some good experienced players if only he can recognise that. All a manager needs to do js pick the right players and do not burden them with modern tactics. Unleash them press from the front!!!!

Apparently we've team up with "Health Span" to help the players recover from injury blah,blah,blah,you ask me. we should be teaming up with "Checkatrade dot-com"and get a plumber in to sort out our leaky defence!!! 😂😂😂

RR1. I have to disagree with you about Zonal marking, the idea behind it is you are defending an area of the pitch and not a player. If you mark a player he can pull you out of position which leaves gaps for the opposition, in theory by defending an area of the pitch gaps should not be available to the opposition, but with any defensive option you have to get stuck in and tackle a player when they are in your area.

''Eh" ??😕

25 Sep 2017 17:55:23
Abf i 100% disagree. Zonal marking is just another load of codswallop. Coaching manual nonesense. You pick up your man, attack the ball at corners not liks our 4 stood in a row where the strike makes his run into the box with momentom to leap highest. Worral has been elevated to england under 21 yet cannot do a basic defensive job for us. These type of players are canon fodder for over promoted coaches. Warbs picks his team based on the opposition. He says he watches the opposition and sets his team up accordingly???? How come players drift into our box unattended. If you watch vids of the opposition surely we should nulify the obvious threat???? No we are confused by the expectations of the coach. Ask alan shearer or ian wright what they think of zonal marking and which they would like to play agwinst!!!!

Long time no hear 2tone, you been partying, how was Malta?

25 Sep 2017 20:32:27
Had a great time in Malta 🍻(apart from the actual game-that was shocking)

25 Sep 2017 21:31:26
Are we drafting in any Maltese defenders? or are we sticking with M&M's at the back who melt in your mouth not in your hand?

Zonal or man marking makes no difference if you do not watch where the ball is going instead of trying to wrestle your man to the ground!
