Anyone else think we might need a change of system? I really like our set up against the bigger teams but against teams where I feel we should be dominating or at least seeing more of the ball it feels like we aren't taking the fight to but rather ceding possession and allowing wave after wave and the constant targeting of our wingbacks.
Also sidenote - Sergi keeps committing to 5050s that he rarely comes out winning leaving us exposed time after time. Love the enthusiasm but needs to temper it when we're not comfortable...
Totally agree - the opposition know how Brentford are going to line up, so, you neutralise Canos & Henry/Thompson and Brentford have no attack. Sitting ducksEven when we were going well I said the PL requires a few different systems. If you stay static against these top quality coaching teams you'll get found out very, very quickly. Granted injuries and Covid isn't helping us but I do think we need more than one way of playing, particularly as we start playing teams for the second time. Tonight isn't a good sign of what might be ahead against teams who have already played us.

Agreed. We’re without:We are down to the bare bones. Just a blip. We will be better when we have players back. Could rest everyone v City as it is a game I expect to get nothing from. COYBees
