Team against Wolves - Wednesday 26/12/18
« on: December 23, 2018, 08:46:42 AM »
After a clean sheet, finally, it looks as if Ranieri has come up with a formation and system that works so I’m going with more of the same. Seri had a good game, perhaps the extra cover helped? The only change I’ve made from the starting 11 is AK47 for Schurrle, I'm assuming that Ryan will not be fit


Rico

Odoi          Mawson          Ream

Christie          Chambers          Seri          Bryan

Cairney          AK47

Mitro

Subs: Betts, MLM, KMac, Ayite, Vietto, Schurrle

I agree, but Sessegnon will hopefully be fit, so him for Schurrle, and Kamara as an impact sub.

I agree, I don’t think there is much between mlm and ream. I would take Vietto off the bench and put kebano there for some pace in the closing stages.
I think and always have with the summer recruiting that the summer buys were or a 3-5-2 system,but Slav never really had a chance to start with it due to injuries.
Also playing Wednesday.😝

We would do better to field a team against Wolves on Wednesday rather than Saturday.  Also, AK for Schurrle certainly.

Kamara got a lot of energy, but he is a walking red card.

That was the most defensive line up and performance I have ever seen from a Fulham team, it was called for yesterday and was a tactical success for Ranieri . The point won was critical and kept Newcastle in the relegation zone.

However  more of the same is not going to get us the wins we now need to avoid relegation, we fielded five across the back yesterday plus Chambers, a centre back, in midfield. It will be interesting to see if Ranieri changes tactics for the next two games which are at home.

wolves are far better than Newcastle, plus with our mini goal drought, I think it would be suicidal to abandon a defensive line up. It just needs a little tweaking imo. Like I said above, swap out Bryan for sessegnion and swap out schurrle for ak. Those two changes would make us far superior in attack and more solid at the back. It's a no brainer imo.

If we wish to give ourselves the best chance to achieve another clean sheet, keep the same formation with the exception of Schurrie. We still created chances. A clean sheet means we only need to score once.
Being at home makes hardly any difference, we are not good enough to throw caution to the wind.
Stability and consistency is paramount, injuries permitting, although the one exception, the lazy Schurrie needs a dam good thrashing to shake him out of his apathy. He let his team mates down again yesterday, until he went off, Fulham were playing one man shy.

tend to agree as must be a back 5 every game now.

Whilst our defence is not capable of keeping a clean sheet playing A flat back 4 I think we should stick to what worked against Newcastle. If and when we buy some players who hopefully will sure up the defence then we can look to attack again.

Wolves are a very attack minded team and if we try to go toe to toe I feel we will concede easily and be left with nothing but a deflated team  and the same old posters moaning about Tony Khan, Seri and the sacking of Slav

Don't mind seeing a few changes further up the field, i.e. Sess if fit, AK for Schurrle, Ayite for TC even but please don't change the defence.

My worry is we now seem to have no goals.
Mitro, Shirley and AK are mis firing.
I know we all love AK's power and pace but he has NO composure in front of goal.
Mitro - not convinced at the moment ... looks fat.

Shirley ... Fonte / Ruiz like ... luxury.

wouldn't mind the same formation but I really doubt Ranieri will play it again... if he does, I agree with the comments Sess to replace Bryan (hopefully he's fit) - I must admit I'm a fan of Bryan but so far he has made a lot of silly errors...

If the formation is about to change, I'm still waiting to see a 4-1-4-1 where Cairney and Seri can help Mitro in attack together and Chambers controlling the midfield.

The lads looked whacked at the end yesterday - they are not used to giving 90 minutes effort.

It’s a busy schedule at this time - the tinkerman may tinker.
