1. High energy pressing
2. Pace wide/counter-punching
3. Build from the back with a fast, physical 4 man backline, capable of switching to a 3 if needed
4. Creativity at #10 in a 4-2-3-1 capable of switching to 4-4-2/3-5-2
5. 2 deep midfielders but one a passer/playmaker (like Barry)
It is not likely to be a huge change for us tactically. If Silva canít get the job done then ANO Head Coach happy within a DoF system and able to play the required way arrives with Brands providing the continuity, stability and direction.
Brandsí success or failure is more critical for what we want to do than Silva.
: I have a bad feeling about him .... its like
: he had a few good spells at both Hull and
: Watford but ultimately failed to stay the
: distance. The fact his head was so turned by
: our interest last year that his side fell
: apart extremely alarming and makes me wonder
: how stable this guy is.
: He seems to change clubs every year since
: 2014 with personal reasons or just quitting
: a common theme. I think bringing him is as a
: huge risk given that we are talking about a
: long term project and haver appointed Brands
: (a man who has proven he can stay the
: distance). The club needs someone who will
: not have their head turned and is committed
: to giving us at least three years in terms
: of building a platform for success as our
: squad needs a complete overhaul.
