My plea to Roy is for a December 1972 type game.

If someone could pass that on to Roy please, I'm working today and wont have a chance to ring him.

We had Wilf for that game. Massive difference. Need to keep GD down.

That's going to be difficult when you are up against Sanchez and Lukaku and we have players coming back from injury and therefore not match fit.

If Roy is going to play both Benteke and sorloth.. play them up top together. Find it rather bizarre we have played 4-4-2 all season with only one recognised striker then when we finally get a second he’s played out wide in a 4-5-1

Hennessey
WB Kelly Tomkins pva
Townsend MacArthur luka schlupp
Sorloth Benteke


Use the big boys, lump it Upto them, get Townsend and schlupp to get balls In box early as we have zero creativity through midfield

No creativity in midfield is spot on, another miss in both transfer windows.

As you say, bypass the midfield, it's crap.

We haven't brought creativity in the midfield since we came up. Cabaye hardly creates goals with defense-splitting passes or set pieces and he's the best we had in that department. The AM role is the only outfield position that we have refused to spend money on as we resolutely stuck with our wing-centric style of play. The only difference is that we work the ball to the wingers better than we used to and had a better target man last season.

Fact is, if we had kept the strike force we had before Benteke and invested in the extra creative string of a midfielder able to play through balls, we would be doing just fine right now. Oh well, we live and don't learn. Always said we'd never go forward without a better midfield and that we'd be relegated before we ever prioritized midfield creativity and that bet is looking pretty good right now.

Absolutely. By-pass the midfield. We've done it in terms of investment, now it's time to do it literally.
