I wish Silva would be a little cagier tactically.

We've done a better job of controlling matches down a man this season. Sitting a little deeper makes us harder to exploit through the middle and we'll always carry a threat because our wingers are so good in space.

Obviously, this sort of thing won't work every match (Huddersfield at home, for instance) but I think we'd see better performances if we were less aggressive at trying to pressure the ball in our opponent's third. We're not built to play so aggressively, especially our midfield.

Agree with this.

Go a little bit more conservative until he gets more of the players in who can play the style he wants to a good level.

Arsenal game should be a decent chance to go more solid, and try to play on the break.

Yeah I'd hope so.

It's possible to play tighter whilst still aiming to come away with a win.

Feels like ages since we've had an away game against a side not in the top 6.

Now we're looking more and more comfortable with Silvas style I cant wait for some away games against the lesser sides.

Should hopefully pick up a lot more points on the road this season.

Plus, Bournemouth based on season to date wasn’t an easy game (nor Wolves and Leicester).

Looking at it, early teething problems with defensive set up from set pieces has stopped us being right up there.

Looked like scoring in every away game so far too.

Yeah. Not really played anyone actually shit away from home yet.

I don't think we have any combination of midfielders good enough to successfully control a match tbh.

It's vital we keep the great home form up.

Hopefully the away results get better as the season goes on.

If we start struggling at home then he's going to be in trouble unfortunately.

Pressure properly on him now like isnt it. Probably even more so than in the bad spell last season as he still had the first season excuse.

Rather we didn't sack mid season but if we get dumped out the cup and walloped by City what can you expect really.

Half intrigued to see who Brands would have line up like.
