“I think the last few performances wasn’t great,” the gaffer told Ben Pearce.
“I think we need more consistency and then to try to find with our full-backs to go forward and stay wide.
I am happy because I think the system worked. But I think today to play with one or another system is not the key. I think the key is to be more aggressive. I think the team played well.”
There is no greater sadness than watching those that failing to adapt.
I’ll use a beer metric, if I may.
There was a pub local to me that was massively in vogue at one stage.
The jukebox endlessly blasted out Ocean Colour Scene, Blur and Oasis morning noon and night, which then, everyone loved.
However that whole Brit Pop thing faded, and the pub was rebranded by the chain and it was more interested in selling optimistically titled ‘meals for £5.99’.
A guy I knew carried on drinking in there, come hell or high water.
I remember once asking him why he wasn’t up at the Hog’s Head with all the others.
Essentially, his answer was that he really liked the old place!
Each to their own, and maybe he met the girl of his dreams and they lived happily ever after.
A girl he’d have perhaps never met had he moved when everyone else did.
Pochettino isn’t going to get anywhere trying to perpetuate this wing-back nonsense.
We’ve only got one on the books and he’s gone off the boil/doesn’t fancy it anymore.
Which leaves us clinging and failing to achieve anything with a system that doesn’t fit the playing personnel.
‘…our full-backs to go forward and stay wide’.
Mate, that ship has sailed.
