Set pieces. Just sort out the set pieces. I know it comes across as a bit Tony Pulis or Sean Dyche, but if we sort out set pieces we will be almost unbeatable.The idea that we should be criticising the team for only scoring twice away from home, is a bit silly tbh.
We let in 3 goals.
Did any of them look like quality defending ? Or even average defending ? If it was Phil Jones & Smalling, would we be saying they were a bit unlucky, or saying something else ?
Time to do the obvious: sort out the defence.
Pretty sure if we do, that, we'll still manage to score a fair few goals. I'm pretty sure if we had only let in one, we'd have scored more at the other end.
That would help, definitely, at both ends but imo it's just that we are, on the whole, not great at defending.Set pieces. Just sort out the set pieces. I know it comes across as a bit Tony Pulis or Sean Dyche, but if we sort out set pieces we will be almost unbeatable.
The club was advertising for a set piece analyst over the summer, they obviously know it's a problem, but they have to figure it out. It's not height, either, or the person on the post, the zonal marking is being exploited time after time.
I agree. While i've been fairly impressed with Rodri so far since he signed, he's definitely no Fernandinho!I still think Ferna not playing makes us so much easier to be got at. Not having a go at Rodri because I've been impressed on the whole, but Ferna is one of, if not the best in the world at DM and we miss him like mad when he doesn't play.
