I agree with you regarding three at the back, but I think I'd go 3-5-2 like this:

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

I think we need to have a reserve side again. Then the players that do well on the U23's can play in the reserves against experienced players, and the guys on the bench can play in the reserves so they're still playing matches.

Congratulations 1964white. This means you're a tactical genius like me.

Re: Three things you learned from today's game

It's even worse outfield. Two players going for a ball. One decides that instead of going for the ball, he'll put his leg between the opponent and the ball. For me, the player going for the ball shouldn't get a card, or have a foul against him. He should get a free-kick because the other player didn...

Re: Three things you learned from today's game

Watched it loads of times. There was contact. Penalty. O'Kane was stupid. You can't tackle in the area these days. You have to shepherd them, and block if they try to cross.

Re: Three things you learned from today's game

Sakho is terrible.
O'Kane is a liability.
Roofe lost his mind.

Now Heck is in, are we pleased TC is out?

I'll set the ball rolling.
I like TC, but he said in his interview, he'd have made changes in matches where Monk lost. While in charge, his only changes were to bring on weaker players in the same position.
So I'm pleased we have the Heck in.

Re: Top Academy Prospects

From what bit I've seen, and what I've heard from people I follow on twitter that watch the U23's, Sarkic could be ready in 18 months if we're still in this division. Looks very good. The best is probably Machuca. Exceptional midfielder. Very talented. He could be better than Viera already. Dominate...

Thomas Christiansen is no longer manager.

Re: I'll asked the question again

The basis of the argument is that this is not the time to change the manager, especially considering the dearth of good options, and the fact that we only have half a defence. A new man would not be able to bring in new blood until the summer, so we stick with what we have got. Is TC the man to tak...

Re: I'll asked the question again

I think he can only turn things around if he has the balls to change the formation, and start Dallas, and give Roberts a place on the bench at least. Then make changes with at least twenty minutes to go, and attack.

Re: I'll asked the question again

I've always been a big believer in giving managers time. I've just about run out of patience now though. TC got the job because he said he'd change things when they aren't working . He doesn't. Poor Grot isn't ready, but TC keeps making him suffer. Roofe & Alioski haven't put a decent ball in the bo...

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

Andrea is building us a solid core. Weidwald in place. Pontus in place. Samu and Pablo in place. Forshaw and De Bok possibly.
Kalvin and Ronaldo in place, and gaining experience ready for the step up.
Is there an emergency loan window like in the summer?
