    Tactical changes

    Posted by Ramridge Raider on 3/2/2023, 20:33:06

    This is from a very amateur view but I am beginning to notice the tactical tweaks that RE is making to the side.

    Last season Jones turned us into a very high pressing side with lots of intensity. This worked for the majority of the season but I sensed sides were beginning to work us out a bit at the end.

    Noticeable this season, the opposition rarely played out from the back, negating our high press. Coincidentally, our best two home performances have come against Norwich and QPR. Two sides who wanted to play football from the back.

    RE alluded in a recent interview that he wanted to use his cenre halves to overload the midfield and wide area's. That was really noticeable the other night, Burke popping into higher central and wide area's and Bell inner-lapping Doughty.

    He also seems to be playing both wing-backs higher up the pitch.

    This obviously leaves us potentially exposed to the quick counter, particularly at home. This is where a top not notch holding midfielder is invaluable to the tactical set up of the team.

    If Marvelous can do a job here, I think we could see a very entertaining second half of the season.

        Agreed, and Cardiff were not clever enough to expose our backs, who were higher up...

        A good side would have done us, but I'm guessing RE would change system, to counter that ???


        Wtf do I know, btw

          Just read your post further down about how serious everyone tales the game now.

          Not brown nosing, but one of the best analysis of our game I've read in years, all in one simple paragraph.

          You should send it to Tracey Crouch. At least she seems switched on to your normal football fan.

            Cheers, yeah it's all about money, hype and selling broadcasting

            'The man' has vacuumed the fun out of the game for me

            Still enjoy going to Luton games but the rest of it is shit

              And added to all the over-serious analysis of what is happening on the green, there is next to no analysis or scrutiny from the Beeb or Sky about the stuff they should be looking closely at - the shit-show that the sport has become off the field (ownership, finance, etc)

              The fawning over Newcastle on Tuesday was a bit sickening

                Yep, at a closer level, look at WBA. I 'm no football finance expert but I reckon if they don't go up this year, they will do a Derby next season.

                However, no media interest in this.

                The no brainer seems to be her key objective of giving the EFL 25% of all broadcast fees.

                Benefits every club in the whole pyramid bar the top six in the Premiership.

            Great stuff as usual RR. I thought we has plateaued under NJ since early 2002 and had become very one dimensional and predictable. So I wasn't unhappy when he left as I think 2020 would have got rid sooner or later anyway.

              Soton's approach for Jones was brilliant timing... for Luton

                I know itís easy to say now, but did feel like something was slightly off this season (despite being fairly well placed when he left). Think the move was best for all parties in the end tbh

                I also think his constant intensity was beginning to grate on a few players.

                In a way, not dissimilar to Mourinho.

                Still did wonders for us though but I agree with you, the time was probably right for both panties.

                    Agreed. NJ's totally naive tactics at Fulham and ho hum attitude to the defeat to them down the road was just jaw dropping. Nakamaba seems to be the key, fingers crossed (probably put the hoodoo on us for tomorrow now).

                    and not so many long high diagonal balls into Elija, he seems to be back to his normal self that has coincided with the arrival of Edwards.
                    he also has more freedom and appears to be enjoying his football again.
