change in formation now?

Recommended Posts

Following on from the signing of darnell fisher is tommy now trying to compensate the lack of pace and width , and the leaky defence with a wing back formation?

It would make sense in that fisher and shaughnessy with dave mackay for back up on the right, and it would suit easton very well, with liam craig and scobbie able to fill in where needed. it would result in a spare player both in the centre of defence and the middle of the park which should make it more solid and easier to keep possesion, our defence has been making a lot of mistakes, but pehaps a central 3 with dave mackay sweeping in behind ( no pace, but does seem to have a reasonable reading of the game ) would hopefully clean up a few errors but also give a bit of calmness to the other two, knowing that they have someone behind if they make a mistake might actually calm them down and help to reduce the errors.

 

its easy to a see a team of mannus, anderson , dave mackay and brad mackay at centre backs, fisher/ o'shaugnessy right wing back and easton/craig left wing back, a midfield three of millar/davidson/craig/caddis,lappin ( considering only really millar seems to be dynamic enough to get up and down in a midfield 2 having 3 would share the burden ) and with macca/sutton/kane/cummins playing furthes forward with mikey having a free role to just run at people, it would be much more solid than we are now and actually looks.

 

so perhaps tommy does have a change in formation in mind with a signing of another right back ? either that or maybe he just thinks o'shaugnessy is absolute p*sh, but it could be interesting to see how we line up in the next few weeks

You forgot about MOH there, who is doing a stunning job of providing pace from the midfield. I think the manager has been quite astute by bringing in another RB will provide competition for Joe and effectively remove the need to play cup-tie at RB and let him concentrate on CB this season
