What do we think of the new Gaffer’s tactics?All the talk has been of a 433, but today it was more like 442 or 4411, with Sigurdson as the support striker behind Tosun.Richarlison and Walcott looked like old style wingers.Schneiderlin and Gueye were both very deep at times.Obviously it all changed after the red card.
He has the players on his side, Silva tongue he is - a big asset
Noticed Schneiderlin in between the two centre halves a lot. Similar to what Barry did under Martinez.
I read that as Yoda
Thought Big Mo had a good game, and I'm really pleased about that. Hope he has a big season with us.
It’s just still the issue of him with Gueye. Along with neither of them really passing forward with any regularity they don’t seem to have a natural understanding defensively.
Yes he ran around a lot more but I kept an eye on him and nearly every pass is very McCarthy-esque. Before he received the ball he's always got one eye on the next backwards or sideways easy pass instead of picking his head up to see if a more progressive ball is on to catch the opposition out or capitalise on a bit of space. Which then leaves Gana to be the one to start an attack, which clearly isn't his strong point.It's like he's got all the tools but doesn't want to use them and instead opts to play within himself. Frustrating player.
I think there's still the case of confidence here, and the better he plays the more adventurous he'll become.
