  1. I think a good option for the right wing slot that hasn’t been mentioned much is Domenico Berardi from Sassuolo. He has been consistently excellent for them for a number of years. In 18-19 he got 8 goals 4 assists in 35 games. 19-20 it’s up to 14 goals and 10 assists in 30 games. Pretty good for a winger in a fairly average team.
  2. Why is Perez playing so narrowly? Ricardo is isolated against Grealish and Targett. This is how they scored
  3. I hear Ademola Lookman might be leaving RB Leipzig as he's not playing much. Could be a good option on the wing.
  4. Neither of them are great progressive passers of the ball. I fear that if you play both alongside each other then they wouldn't be able to find Maddison and the players in front of them much. Mendy is more like a holding midfielder compared to Choudhury though, who presses a lot. So he may be more suited to Ndidi's solo holding midfielder role than Hamza is.
  5. Kasper Soyuncu Evans Benkovic Ricardo Tielemans Choudary Justin Maddison Nacho Vardy Subs: Ward, Chillwell, Fuchs, Mendy, Praet, Gray, Perez I think we need two holding midfielders to give some solidarity that we lack with a solo holding mildfielder that isn't Ndidi. Tielemens usually plays deeper for Belgium so Mendy or Choudary along side him makes sense.
  6. It's pretty clear what our weakness is, we can't deal with a well organised high press. This has coincided with a general drop in form of quite a few players, as well as team targeting our weaknesses making it harder for our players. Ndidi does so much effective defensive work that it takes so much pressure off Soyuncu, Evans and everybody else, making them look better. No combination of Maddison, Tielemans, Praet or Choudary in the current system of a single holding midfielder have the same effect defensive effect. I think we should probably switch to a double pivot of Tielemans and Choudary/Mendy/whoever to give extra passing lanes to break the high press and to give added defensive solidarity that we lack without Ndidi. Having said this Burnley have never used a high press, so this won't be as big of an issue next match as it was today.
  7. Tbf they all were offside when looking at the replays
  8. Unfortunately this seems to be true. As a holding midfielder he isn't an answer.
  9. I think the biggest thing is missing Ndidi. Choudary is far less effective defensively
  10. There's some stat like they retain 10% more throw in after they got the throw in coach.
  11. Great goal. ironically we have been very sloppy so far
  12. No Eppiah, Ughelumba or Benkovic played for the development side. So hopefully that means that they will be involved tomorrow instead of being out injured.
