People putting a back 3 or 5 away from home? Why??? It has literally not worked once for us. Set up as we do at home, don't set up with the wrong mindset of defending, and get some much needed continuity and results. A back 4 is a must

Donít think so and would like to see it, but do teams generally play the same way away from home as they do at home? Especially teams like ours that are so fragile and prone to giving up big chances.

Leicester and Palace two recent wins and Leicester hit the bar about 4 times and Benteke missed aba 3 chances for palace, and thatís at home!

Maybe if we stopped approaching away games so differently, we might stop being so fragile and might actually win a few.

Best form of defence is attack. At present our best form of attack is to defend and then concede and give up.

Fair enough you have to be adjustable when it comes to playing different teams. But not home vs away. Proper defeatist attitude.

I'd rather we be brave and go for it then bend over like we did against arsenal. Put out a high energy, hard working, aggressive midfield and forward line and get them on the back foot.

 We have more quality than most teams below us and swansea and Watford have proved recently how fragile some of the teams above us are when forced to defend

I agree with what a lot of you are saying tbh - not like weíve got a great deal to lose, our away record is terrible so why not try and dominate a game?

My issue is we donít even really dominate at home, extremely fragile even against shite teams so a team with their home fans etc....reckon we need something a bit more solid away from home until we have a better midfield in place.

I donít think that weíve been overly attacking anywhere (although vs Spurs we pushed Rooney very high up the pitch).

But I do think part of our issues away from Home is that we donít hold onto the ball enough and so invite too much pressure.

Give any side enough possession and they will create chances.

We need to make the other team worry about us for longer so Iíd just stick with what is working at home.

If all else fails at least it provides a bit more continuity.

YES.  We were very lucky in both of those recent wins.

Wouldn't it be nice to see us control a game again?

Not like our home fans are very supportive at the moment.

Some of our away support has been better than the toxic atmosphere at home
