I know I keep saying it but 3-5-2 just won't work if you're constantly chopping and changing the back three and you have no proper wing backs.Might be a bit rusty after not using 3-5-2 for so long but the pressing is pointless unless it's done as a unit. Totally agree, by end of first half and for first few minutes (calmac chance) second half I thought..here we go. Just ran out of ideas and shape disintegrated.
Time yet to get a team focussed and settled. I wonder if Lenny saw the Covid effect and gambled with giving a few periphery players a run out. Result wise it worked, but for consistency in a season already stop start that's a gamble
A solid defensive unit needs to gel and build an understanding with each other but that will never happen when it randomly changes personnel from one game to the next and if you're going to use WB's then they need to be actual WB's and not LB's or RW's who lack either the attacking or defensive ability to do the job.
Don't know how many times the point has to be driven home that Taylor, who is a very competent LB, lacks the attacking capabilities to play as a WB and that the opposite is true of Forrest and Frimpong on the right before the management finally get the message.
I'd ditch this 3 at the back and WB nonsense in a heartbeat right now, it's leaving us exposed at the back and it's sucking the life out of our attacking play. There's no balance or cohesion to this team right now and it's this system and the constant rotation of players from one game to the next that's at the root of it.
