That's an interesting point. I was told by a Liverpool fan who knows his football that Rogers was great at setting up his teams to play a certain way. But when the plan went array he wasn't very good at changing things to rescue the situation. This seems to be borne out by recent adverse results.

This is an area where Puel was excellent at rescuing results from the jaws of defeat. Where we excelled in the 2nd half of games and scored late to win or draw games.

 

Reading the game quicker and reacting sooner is an area BR needs to improve on. As your never going to impose yourself on teams continuously unless your at that level of Man City, Barca etc. 

I would say that Rodgers ha spent most of the season tweaking stuff to get us into the ascendancy..... hence our Usual second half advantage 

 

Saturday was the first time I hadn’t seen any plan B which is why I questioned what I’d seen

Here's the proof Brendan Rodgers is not excelling in the second half of games; https://www.soccerstats.com/halftime.asp?league=england

They don’t tend to play two on ones with their full backs..... mane and Salah come inside and leave the flanks to the full backs 

 

a diamond would leave our centre backs possibly left  2 v 2 with firmino and one of Salah/mane ..... cannot see that happening .......

I think they will have seen what Mahrez and de bruyne did to Chilwell leaving him outnumbered which lost us the game imo. A narrow diamond will force them out wide and the midfielder on that side and the full back could close that space. Then having two wide forwards could massively help us leaving us 2 vs 2 on the counter with space behind as their full backs are likely to bomb forward, which we could exploit.

He obviously corrects his mistakes but why does he keep making them in the first place?

Because it's only you that never makes mistakes.

I know it’s a big ask but due to getting tomorrow off work at last minute due to a shift change managed to swap today  I don’t suppose anyone has a spare ticket going for tomorrow’s game ?
Other than that I get to watch it in full 4K amazon prime didn’t think I’d be watching due to work commitments ?

I was spot on with the man city prediction.  I’m afraid to say, this will be a 2-1 reverse. Merry Christmas 

Could you also give me the numbers for the Euromillions this weekend!

So when does Prime membership stop if you cancel? Mine was cancelled and will finish on the 26th. Is that at midnight on the 25th or post match midnight on the 26th? Please let it be the latter.

Just before the leicester game starts

The diamond at villa allowed their full backs to get forward at will .....Rodgers judged that in an open game we would outscore them and he was right .... I cannot see him making that same judgement tomorrow

Yeah but having two forwards that can break at pace could be such a deadly weapon with Maddison on the counter. We should defend deep, invite the pressure and play the two forwards (Vardy and Nacho) in between each centre back and full back. If we catch the full backs out of position then it's almost certainly 2 vs 2 or their position will likely mean that their full backs won't get as forward as much so it limits their threat. 

 

I think just going at Liverpool is playing right into their hands. We need to set up a little more conservatively and look to play on the break, or it could be the same outcome as the weekend.

If we use wingers in this one, I think Albrighton could get a start. Certainly our most defensively responsible option there.

I’d much rather have a manager who tries new things and makes mistakes here and there, than one who has no plan B and tries the same thing week in week out.

Not one that we've told you about anyway....

Why waste the energy or time on the negativity / pessimism.

There is nothing worse than a stubborn manager.  And don't worry - we are going to win this.
