Roy is the problem. His tactics are simply too primitive. It all starts with the manager, and as a player you expect the manager to put you in a position to succeed. He needs to realize that throwing attackers at a problem won't solve the issue. The issue isn't goalscorers, it's the abili...

Yep. I disagree OBU. They need a balanced midfield. They go out with whatever this formation is again and they will be exposed at least once by Costa Rica. Even with 4 attackers, they don't have the midfield numbers to hold the ball and build up some good chances....

They don't have many other options in the midfield. Unfortunately it seems Gerrard is undroppable at this point. Like I said in the first match thread, Roy should have brought Barry as I think he had a fantastic season and would offer a bit more tactical flexibility. ...

Why not pair Gerrard, Henderson and Wilshere? That would be really close to mirroring the LFC midfielf from this season where Gerrard excelled. He can still control matches, but he needs to be surrounded by 2 MIDFIELD runners who are good tacklers and can relieve space in the middle of the park for ...

I do agree in a sense. 4-3-2-1 with Gerrard, Henderson, Wilshere in the midfield. Rooney at the 10, and Sturridge and Sterling up top. That team is fairly balanced and would excel on the break....

The funny thing, IMO, is Roy attempting to be tactically flexible by abandoning his tactical impulses, and starting 4 attackers. I just don't get it. Starting Rooney, Sturridge and Welbeck is essentially starting 3 players who each consider themselves a 9....

The tactics were just all wrong for me. The XI was woefully unbalanced. It was essentially a 4-2-4 with Gerrard at the base of a 2-man midfield. That shite isn't going to work. His mind and body are too far gone for that much responsibility. They should have gone 4-3-3 or 4-3-1-2 in my opinion...

Roy is so fricking dense. Like I said in the last thread, Rooney should be dropped for a wide player and welbeck should be dropped for Wilshere. 4-3-3 with Sturridge leading the line and Sterling and Lallana on the wings, and Gerrard, Henderson, Wilshere in the midfield. They are so unbalanced right ...

I've got a lot to say, but my Macbook broke, so I will try to consolidate it all since I'm on my phone. The tl;Dr is that Prandelli has more tactical knowledge and flexibility in his shits than Roy does in his entire body. He was able to almost seamlessly overcome a host of injuries/concerns and...

With that said, they didn't play terribly. Actually it was one of their best performances against a good team thst I can remember. They are just terribly unbalanced. Roy needs to nut up and sit Welbeck and pair Rooney and Sturridge. If he refuses to do that then Rooney needs to hit the bench. Pla...
