Still find it amusing his defence was that he copied Swansea and so the tactics were fine. Is that the extent of our ideas? It's the tactical equivalent of trying to answer exam questions by looking at what the kid next to us is writing and wondering what went wrong.
It’s just as baffling that he’d then hammer the players when all he’d done was show them videos of that game.
Ignoring completely Home / away dynamics for us and them, different players, that they probably practiced that for a week before the game.
He actually said something similar after Spurs where he said he toyed with the idea of copying WHam but then opted for the more “attacking” approach.
I don’t expect us to go all gung ho in these games at all but we should at least be playing with some resemblance to how we normally play not just copying wholesale someone else with previous success.
