  1. Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but on sky sports news they have a changing dashboard on the right of the screen which shows league tables etc. Earlier today it showed the top scorers in the prem so far this season. Teemu was at the top on 5 with Raheem Stirling just below also on 5. Now it shows Stirling on top with Pukki below. I know this sounds petty, but why change it? Clear case of big team favouritism? Just thought I would mention it to see if anyone else had noticed. Snake

    Puntastic suggestions for signings

    We could always raid Leeds like we used to, Cooper is an option , but might have us over a barrel, so maybe Roofe could be acquired for cover? If not then from elsewhere Abraham would be a signing of biblical proportions, as would Gabriel Jesus! However Maupay might just be asking to much in wages!

    Who replaces Buendia?

    For me the natural move would be for McLean to replace Buendia in the forward right position and for either Leitner or Vrancic to come into central midfield. Snake
  4. Hi nutty, I would like one if possible?

    Ben Woodburn

    If this really is possible I would take him in a heartbeat.

    The lad is quality, committed and would compliment what we have.

    Better than anything we currently have and pretty much a risk free option.

    Legends Game

    Was really impressed with Milan yesterday.

    Zanetti was excellent, Matterazzi''s Free Kick was quality ans Beresi at 60, despite the grey hair looked as fit and energetic as most of our team this year. He was superb at left back! Got up and down that flank as well as someone half his age.

    Really enjoyed the game and thought Hucks showed what we have missed for so long.

  7. Well done TIL and all.

    Great effort. Was let down by some odd results.

    My Eurobet failed aswell as Anderlect drew. Oh well. Shame but glad there are so many great PUPs out there to pick up the slack!

    Well done all on a difficult weekend!

    Parma’s Tactics Masterclass 18

    Parma,

    do you not think that there is a danger that players are being coached to try and become all things to all men? Are we asking them to do too much, which inturn can stifle natural abilities?

    I bring the case of the ''Wingback'' for example. A wide player being asked to defend and attack with equal competence. Expected to be fit enough to run the length of the pitch to create overlaps attacking, then retreat at break neck speed to defend.

    This is a simplification I know, but I have seen managers trying to mould players into something they are not. Asking attacking players to defend like defenders. Just to fit a philosophy or system.

    Therefore, is this the reason why we see many talented young players in this country, who show real flair and ability, fail to progress?

    Parma’s Tactics Masterclass 18

    Thanks Parma,

    interesting read. I disagree, however, with the idea that any player can play the positional play philosophy, well.

    When Hughton was manager he was trying to implement a structured and some suggested, mature philosophy to the team. This involved the team moving up as one unit, maintaining possession and occupying the field of play. However, this philosophy, in my opinion, could not be implemented with the players at his disposal. Certain players fit philosophies better than others.

    I would say the same is happening with Farke now.

    However, what I am yet to hear/see is what the actual philosophy and, as such vision, that Farke has for the team.

    Is it a true Positional Play philosophy based on ball retention only, or does he see a progression to faster movement and less sluggish attacking intent?

    Your thoughts would be welcome.
