Time for Shickhouse Mode?

Recommended Posts

So it seems we can't rely on winning with quality football so how about 5 at the back, crowd the middle, rile the players up pre match with montages of talk sport telling us we should just give our place up and shearer and co telling patronising **** jokes about us on MOTD...

Krul

 

Aarons, Gibson, Hanley, Kabak, Giannoulis

Rupp, Sorenson, Normann

Sargent, Pukki

Scrap the creative side and just aim to win the physical battle.

We really just need to scrap out an ugly 1 nil and fast.

It's just annoying to see how well we did it in the championship vs the likes of QPR and Birmingham but then we are so loose at this level it's embarrassing.

I really don't subscribe to the idea it's impossible to adjust to this level when you look at how well the likes of Sheff UTD did with average players, or how Brentford have managed to turn up... the likes of Ayling, Cooper and Klitch not looking remotely out of place.

here is something severely wrong with the mentality at this club that seems to stop us believing we are allowed to compete at this level. A bit like England and penalties, it transcends through the years through various squads and is entrenched in the very core culture of the club.

Who knows maybe if Farke can't stop the rot, maybe it is time to concede we have to go down the "Big Sam" brexitball route if we're going to survive at this level without chucking huge money at it? Perhaps our model has hit its ceiling sadly short of top 17? Teams just don't seem remotely scared to play vs us. At least vs physical sides like Burnley and Leeds, they're a pain in the **** to play against even if you do end up smashing them eventually.

We just seem like a pushover, ready to be cuckolded, bend over and accept we are here as whipping boys. Time to forsake quality and just try fight a bit harder.

If you're really aiming to 'just win the physical battle' you're playing Omobamidele somewhere in central defence and you're playing Idah instead of Pukki up front.

Angus Gunn is bigger than Krul as well isn't he?

I like the way you've tried to pick a physical team and it still doesn't feel all that physical.

I’d go back to a simple 4-4-2 personally. And have all 4 of our defenders actually defend rather than try to be wingers. I feel one of the reasons we are so exposeda lot of the time is there is so much space in our outside channels due to our full backs pushing too high up the pitch trying to attack rather than have a solid shape to defend. 

                Krul

Aarons. Omo. Kabak. Giannoulis

Rashica. Normann L-Melou. Tzolis

            Sargent Pukki

Youve said 'win the physical battle'...and then put Rupp in your side?...

because he "gets stuck in" more than others 😉

I'd pretty much go with your team ..but Less-Melou for Rupp.

Need to try something..anything..to stop conceding goals and stop the rot

Physical team?

                               Grant Holt

Grant Holt   Grant Holt   Grant Holt   Grant Holt

                     Grant Holt   Grant Holt

        Grant Holt   Grant Holt   Grant Holt

                             Grant Holt

The other team would certainly know they'd been in a game.

Might actually get a point or two...

You should try and make some room for Gary Holt in that selection. The back 4 might need some protection. I'd be slightly worried about a lack of pace in the back 4 & getting caught on the counter.

Ah, the old Double-Holt-pivot. Like it! 👍🏻
