I'm pleased we're actually scoring and attacking again. As for our shaky defence? We've got a nearly complete back line waiting t come in... Patience Blues. We will improve given time.

Yeah, if we’re all honest, we were only collectively confident in Coleman from last season, so we were under no illusions that our defence was ageing and a bit dodgy.

A bit worried about the red card trend continuing.

From what I remember it’s a theme during Silva’s time at Watford.

They’re isolated incidents due to player error (Jags) and stupidity (Richarlison) so I don’t see any pattern emerging or reason for concern there.

Really enjoying this season so far. Silva like a breath of fresh air after the past few seasons. Still not sold on the zonal marking though, although maybe that will improve when he gets the backline he wants installed and up to speed.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

There are some early concerns.

That paul riley that Kramer occasionally quotes articles of etc. Has generally been quite critical of Silva’s appointment (however - my view is that he is relentlessly critical because that’s part of his open job pitching) and has said this weekend that his prem xg numbers are shite.

However, he’s surely had extenuating circumstances at his other two jobs and here we’ve already had two games of 10 men!

I like a lot of what I’ve seen personally and it is a lot different to Sam and Koeman I hope we can all agree there. Let’s hope it’s a lot clearer he calibre of manager he is after say 10 or so prem games?

Yeah. There's no denying that we are a different force going forward. I have no long term worries about xG, as i trust any of our forward line to create & convert chances at expected rates.

There are concerns. At the back when defending set-pieces and the red cards. If it were just these 2 reds (and goals conceded as well actually) i wouldn't be too concerned. But how many times can a freak occurance happen before it stops being a freak occurance? And both these flaws have followed him around.


I'm happy. But there is still a whiff of "martinez' attacking football after the pragmatic Moyes" about it. (and, before the usual suspects appear. I know Moyes played good football quite a bit towards the end there. I also know that the grass wasn't greener with Koeman)

A good new tactics vid from this guy, who did the previous one we all watched when Silva was at Watford

Was just going to post that, interesting that he highlights Keane’s distribution as a strength as I hadn’t really considered it one

Keane is a very good passer of the ball.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Seems to stray from very good to total headcase at any moment on the ball.

That little dink against Southampton was it was superb, but then at any moment when closed down he turns into Jags with his eyes closed.

Confidence maybe.

Think xg concerns covers goals expected from chances created vs goals conceded from chances allowed.

Best teams have a nice healthy inverse relationship creating lots and allowing few, while teams like us are mooching about in the middle somewhere allowing too much and not creating a lot.

Yeah! Our Xg needs to be honest good old fashioned non-mooching around in the midde there, type stuff. :)

D'you not think some of this is a little premature?

You know, with us playing with a mismash of previous managers' players, loads of new players not involved yet, a truncated summer etc etc

I think it's a little absurd to even attempt to analyse it at the moment.

Everyone wants everything yesterday. I long for the pre-social media days when managers would be given 6 months or even a season of grace to bed into a club.

No sorry?

I’m talking about his prem history, and I’ve said I’m not sweating any of it until he’s had like 10 games to see how his system is looking.

You don’t have any opinion? You don’t say want to watch that video above and see how his tactics are shaping up, or anything like that?
