    Hoofing it to midgets? Team’s too small for that, you’re already giving other team the advantage. You’re giving up a ball that has less then 50% chance of retaining.

    There is the option of playing a mid-height, fast through ball, as well. And if we have Giakoumakis up top with Kyogo, then lofted balls are okay.

    Through balls are riskier especially for less skilled players….longer balls that would be lost in dangerous position . Yeah if the Greek can play and is as good in the air as they say then you’d expect more hoofs.

    Until he has the players to execute his dynamic, 4-3-3.. I'd try something like this, we lose so many goals from setpieces.. With this you add more aerial power and should still be dynamic in attack...

    Abada could play through the middle too..

    Hart
    Welsh CCV Starfelt
    Juranovic McGregor Rogic Scales
    Jota
    GG Kyogo
    Can't see him changing it tho.

    I'd rather see a forward pass attempted by the defense, than them panicking when the opposition press. I'd think that Ange wants attacking play. It will have to come at the expense of build-up, but such is life.

    Personally yesterday was him adapting slightly by bringing Bitton in. Only lost 1 goal so that's an improvement. Still his style but with a more pragmatic defensive midfielder in the mix. Think we'll be fine. The pressure was really on yesterday and they managed it. That will lift a heavy burden.

    Leeds have won one game so far this season so i’d say they can’t cope with his system either

    Keep in mind that Kyogo was a regular top scorer with his club in Japan and played across the front line as a central forward and on either wing.

    We won't win many away games playing that poorly, scored from our 2 shots on target, feel like Ange saved himself for a while longer but Motherwell could be the end for him.

    I like it. He just won't do it though which is frustrating..

    If anything I'd change Scales back to the left sided centre half for balance. Starfelt in the middle so he can sleep up and just pass it right or left no messing about..

    Boli left wing back where he played his best football for Rapid. Montgomery would probably be better equipped there as well..

    For domestic game's, we have to find the right balance to get Rogic in. He is frustrating but domestically, he can be the match winner over and over. It's his ability to turn away under pressure and cut open defences that win game's for us..

    Lot of people slating the Greek but I have a feeling he'll be a good player for us..

    In seven games …big deal. More relevant they won 18 games and finished top 10 last season.
