  1. The second half performance shows we need to get back to our high pressing strategy. This season we've only pressed high against Brighton & Liverpool in the second half. When we press high we are very good at winning second balls and then playing on the front foot. Wish we'd do this more often against the tougher teams because if we were able to win balls high up the pitch we'd have Vardy & Mahrez to capitalize on the space these teams leave open. I'd say the only teams we need to sit deep against are Arsenal & Man City because they can both play around a high press.

  3. Is Slimani of premier league quality

    He is premier league quality, but doesn't suit our system. Too slow to play at number 9 and won't drop deep into midfield when playing number 10. Also we won't change our system to accommodate him. He'd score at least 15 in a PL side that is built around him, like Benteke at Palace.

    Hope Walsh gets the blame instead of Koeman for this mess, so he can come back and replace rudders
  7. Huddersfield Away Pre Match Thread

    Quite frankly we are a shambles whenever we try play 3 CM's, so I've never understand fans asking for 3 in the middle. For a start we have no attack minded CM's for a 3 man midfield to work.
  8. That Slimani shot

    Agreed people overreacted about the shot. But the negativity in regards to Slimani comes from him not suiting our style of play & is an average player in our system. Furthermore does he really buy into our team spirit? How much longer does he need to 'adjust to the PL?'. Forget the PL, how about adjusting to our system first of all.. He can't.. He doesn't have the attributes and he should be sold.

    Both Slimani and Ulloa are muck. Gerrem out.
  10. Chelsea Home Match Thread

    Slimani and Vardy need to show they can link up asap
  11. Chelsea (H) pre-match

    We need to press them high and get in their faces. We're one of the few teams that can maintain a pressing, aggressive, energetic style but we need to see more of it especially against the big teams.
  12. Vardy would be good on the counter. But who the fuch is going to pick him out with a pass? Dier? Alli?
  13. Dragovic joins on loan

    With Dragovic and Maguire's ability to play out from the back maybe we'll be able to play a higher line against the bigger teams? Just thinking a high line would make our high press more effective and force mistakes in dangerous areas. We could surprise a few teams with our energy, tenacity and aggression off the ball like we did in 15/16. If I remember correctly, in Shakes first game in charge against Liverpool we played a higher line than usual. They didn't string 2 passes together until the 15th minute because we were keeping the ball well & our high press off the ball made it so difficult for them to start attacks.
  14. Should Chilwell get more game time?

    Next season he can replace Fuchs in the starting 11. This season we need our strongest 11 most weeks if we want to challenge for Europe. If Fuchs & other senior players can get us into Europe then we can start thinking about bedding in Chilwell, Gray, Barnes etc next year.
  15. Change in Style?

    Imo we won't be moving away from our distinct style of play. But the ball playing players we've signed just adds another dimension to our current style. Look at Atletico Madrid for example. Their style of play and set up is similar to ours, but they can do everything... Counter attack, keep the ball, play direct, use wing backs, etc. We need to be able to do everything, like Atletico & adding more players comfortable in possession is a good start.
