Rondon wasn’t fit enough to play 90, especially in the heat…
I’m pretty sure if Calvert-Lewin was fit, or we had a primo back up in the squad, they’d have started. Unfair to blame Lampard for the last few years of mismanaged funds which has led us to this situation.
What concerns me a little is more that we’re painting ourselves into a three centre back picture for the foreseeable future, with Coady and Tarkowski clearly first names on his team sheet. I’d prefer to see a midfield three (Onana, Gueye (I guess), and Iwobi). Perhaps the hope is that Gueye and Onana can handle the middle between themselves, but that takes Iwobi out of the position he’s excelling in.
Also, where any of this leaves McNeil, I’m not quite sure. You’d think he’d have been bought to start but looks like being more of a squad option (which is no bad thing).
Is Frank Lampard tactically naive?
Everyone should know false number nine only works for teams who play possession based football?
The only times we really looked like a team capable of scoring a goal in the last two games was in the last ten minutes today - playing with a proper centre-forward and Dele Ali bringing the ball forward, the Cahill type of an extra midfielder arriving late into the box
If he tries this wing-back system with 3 wingers up front crap again I will lose all respect for him as a manager
