Mon 2 Jan 17:30 Brentford vs Liverpool


Recommended Posts

We play possession football. Brentford are getting us on the counter….with accurate passing in open spaces, forcing those corners at the very least, and those corners are well taken, really putting us under pressure around the goal line.


For all our possession, we are lacking ingenuity. We make basic errors and are getting punished for it. Tsimikas is having a poor game, Ox is energetic but fucks up after doing something good.


Big changes at half time. VVD off? WTF?

Without midfielders who can run and press then we may as well sit deep and go 442. Mo and Darwin on the break.


Not ideal from a 2 goal deficit.

This is what we should have done, as several posters on here have pointed out the last few days.


However when you let your opponent chest the ball down right outside your six yard box from a corner, and give him all the time in the world to settle and pick his shot without being under any pressure what so ever sitting deep wont help you much. Hardly think I’ve seen defending like that at this level before.
