Ok - what formation was that ?

Postby llan bluebird » Sat Jan 13, 2018 4:32 pm

From my point of view Jazz was man marking their 27, 3 at the back, Zohore up top then after that i was lost......

It worked and maybe that the genius of our manager

I was trying to figure it out for 90 mins and I'm still not sure.

A flat back four with Bennett playing ahead of Jazz on the left and Hoilett tucked in behind Zahore.
It was pretty flexible though with Jazz following their guy into the middle at times, Bennett filling in at left back and Hoilett moving out to the left!!

To me seems we started with bamba in the middle then switched to jazz in the middle to mark 27

That's pretty much how I seen it. Was weird though Ralls and patterson seemed further forward than usual. Jazz man marking and Manga was very narrow at times. Seemed all over the place but it worked.
My thoughts on the re-branding??

Not too sure we would get away with that against better opposition though

No I don't think so. I'm not sure where Paterson was playing but he seemed to get involved. What most impressed me was we seemed so much quicker to the first and the second balls, last few games I've felt we haven't done that.

That wasn't formation it was hunger desire and energy which has been missing. The boys wanted it. :thumbup:

Agree with this and think Neil Warnock confused Chris Coleman and his predictable 'Wales' formation (without the personnel to carry it out) :thumbright:
