Alioski/Dallas roles explained

Post by 1964white »

Roles of Alioski and Dallas have been interesting recently, swapping positions - can you explain that to us?

Bielsa
"They both played the majority of the game on the left-hand side. In this sector on the left-hand side there were three heights. The level where James Rodriguez moved, the height or level where Iwobi moved and the height or level of the pitch where Godfrey arrived. There were combinations of movement to attack and defend.

The more advanced ones are Harrison and Raphinha and Alioki who was in front of Dallas and behind the winger. And Dallas who was the furthest one back. The three of them had obligations to defend and attack and with the possibility to interchange functions. At the end of the game Dallas and Alioski started to change sides but this was a small proportion of the game"

It's called interchanging Adam, totally confuses the opposition totally

Imagine Fwank saying to his defenders at half-time......

"Why weren't you marking Dallas & Harrison for their goal"?

Two Chelsea defenders reply "We did boss, as we tracked them Alioski flew pass us both laying on the pass for their No.9, we were hoping he'd miss but he didn't boss"

Interchanging is fine, right wing to left wing, left back to left wing etc

But our players can play anywhere, it's the fact that they do it accross the pitch and back to front at the same time. So fluid.
