Guest Heneage Posted March 1, 2009 Share Posted March 1, 2009 ...right we all saw how poor we were today and how really we just bypassed the midfield which played right into their hands as they defend deep anyway, so if the ball wasn't inch perfect it would trickle through to Jasskalinen. I honestly think there's a bit of kneejerking going on and that we'll be playing Leeds in a matter of months is a bit crazy, we are a good side with players missing. However in my personal opinion we have one major problem and it was to do with the long balls. And that's where the problem lies, we lack ball playing midfielders, you look at any team in the league pretty much they all have midfielders who can or will come and get the ball from the defenders and look forward. Be it, Fabregas, Richardson, Modric, Carrick it doesn't matter, we need players like that, who will come take the ball and look forward, to often we have midfielders who play like Didi Hamman did for city last year, just ticking midfielders they get the ball and move it on to the better players, slight problem being we don't have any of those midfielders. Butt and Geremi can only ever operate in a 5 man midfield, be it infront of the defence or along side 2 others. If we intend to go 4-4-2 you need someone with energy or someone who can pass forward, so today we really should gave gone Taylor, Geremi, because Geremi can pass forward.
