  Anyone got the tippex for that contract extension?
Posted by: Sw4Baggie - 10-29-2016, 06:10 PM - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (3)

Frustrating today... can't complain about losing to Man City, they're a team that player for player could beat us 99 times out of 100, however I can complain about the tactics and approach, again. 

What the hell was that starting XI about? City in the worst run of Guardiola's career, dropping points consistently to sides that press, get at the full back positions, and put the ball in areas that force Bravo to make a decision, yet once again we set up to sit back, concede possession and fail to even go near their box for the first hour. 

Starting with Fletcher and Evans in central midfield was sack worthy. Not only did it mean we had to witness Olsson lumbering round at CH taking wholly unfair abuse from our fans (it's not his fault he's selected when woefully ill-equipped for this league), but we had absolutely no supply from midfield for our wide players to even offer anything on the counter. 

For a 20 minute spell, we pressed city and almost got back into it. Bravo almost gifted Rondon a goal, and Leko troubled their back 3. Morrison gave us a route to turn defence into attack and McClean had supply to run with the ball. I'm not saying had we started with that XI we'd have got anything more than a defeat, but we'd have at least given ourselves a chance. 

For the immediate future Pulis is probably  our best bet of avoiding catastrophe, but he's certainly not delivering any more than most other managers would do with this squad.

We were totally bossed today, no point in player ratings... special mention for GMac who didn't deserve to be on the end of a 4-goal defeat, and for McClean and Rondon who ran their bollocks off.

  A positive and a negative.

Brunt and Morrison in midfield. What a difference.

Hoping that Pulis isn't draining Chadli of his attacking skill. He looked fucked in the second half.

Given Pulis was so keen on signing Benteke in the Summer what system would he have played with Rondon? 
Double Lump ?

Fantastic news

First thing Monday morning I'm gonna add a zero on to all the supplier payments, park my breakfast on my gaffer's desk and watch porn the rest of the day. That should bag me a hefty pay rise

Towards the bottom three, 2 wins in 21, square pegs in round holes, and he's given a new contract FFS.

I think Pulis needs to let the shackles off a bit more with this guy.

Will he though ......

  Anyone care to defend this shit?

Well?

Fucking Jonny Evans in fucking midfield and a clearly over the hill Olsson at the back. Fletcher is copping all the stick but he's got no one to give the ball to and is being asked to do a job that he can't do 

Second half we've looked far better for the simple reason that we've got central midfielders on capable of using the ball. 

Pulis can bitch and moan about not having the right players to attack or even defend whilst carrying enough threat to hit sides on the break (which is bollocks) but that team he sent out today is inexcusable

  Much more positive 2nd half
Posted by: cunninghamismagic - 10-29-2016, 03:32 PM - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (7)

So negative 1st half. Look a different team when we play higher up the pitch. Why the fugg does he set the team up negatively at the start of games?
