I for one feel that we will do ok this season and should finish 4th although this is more down to a poor Arsenal, a goal shy Liverpool and hopefully a small Everton squad that will falter in the later months. Hopefully the board will show more ambition if we reach the promised land this time and we will try to really push on!
The above said, one thing that really bothers me and I feel is costing us points is the overly defensive set up we are employing. Now, away to Man Utd, I have no problems with fielding 2 defensive midfielders and I like the 4-2-3-1 system for these games, and even home matches against the big boys. However, at home against, Norwich, West Brom and Wigan we should be looking to take these teams apart and I dont think that formation is right! We should be fielding a far more attacking line up for these matches and personally 4-3-3 would please me.
With the players we have this formation could really destroy teams and then once leading comfortably we could switch to the 4-2-3-1 to shore it all up. Now I know we have injuries but on the assumption that most players were fit, who wouldn't relish the sight of this lineup against West Ham in our next home match. Lloris Walker Vertonghen Caulker BAE Dembele Sandro Huddlestone Defoe Ade Bale. Bench - Friedel, Gallas, Naughton, Lennon, Siggi, Livermore, Dempsey. There are valid arguments for Friedel in goal and people may want to see Lennon, Siggi or Dempsey in the 11 but this shows that our squad is pretty good.
This line up excites me - solid at the back, a strong midfield 3 with the skills of Dembele, passing of Thudd and the defensive qualities of Sandro. Up front I think these 3 would tear teams apart - pace, finishing, strength etc etc. Lets be solid in our next 2 very hard games and hopefully come away with 4 points(that would be lovely). Then get back to the lane and rip into the Hammers and then take apart a fragile Liverpool to set up a nice Xmas for us all.
