So who is leaving the Championship to make way for them:fishing:

Apparently they have a new Director of Football to make it happen, Rasmus O'Ankerson

He can only deal with the players at his disposal and to try and turn them from the a traditional direct, long ball side into a silky technical flair side would take a very long time, longer than he will have for sure. It has taken us 5/7 years of continuous development and targeted investment. Good luck to him though.

Berkshire, Lboro was my uni!
Surely he means more of the “Brentford way” in the championship.
Having an identity to make work for your team and who you represent.
As we all know for us it’s basically a 4-5-1 that turns into a 4-3-3 very quickly when needed. You can insert extra rows if you like to make it 4-2-3-1 but it’s the same in essence.

It’s obviously been deemed as the best way for us probably 6 years now, limited budget and we want to play with the big boys. Ireland = limited pool of players and want to play with the big boys.

If anyone is injured then a n other can slot in and perform admirably, not just “do a job” in that position. Because it’s a good plan at the moment, a bit like how Germany had a good plan in 2014, Spain before that, Hungary even way before that.

Or a 5-4-1 if we’re having a crisis of confidence, which soon turns into 3-6-1.

There is a big difference between wanting to be like us and actually achieving the required output on a consistent basis. You can't fault his taste though, good luck to him. Another huge compliment to our management team and players.

Well bearing in mind it's the Irish, he probably just wants to build a pub on all four corners of the National Stadium

There’s a very good chance he’ll start selecting based on future rather than past it players. Wouldn’t surprise me if Ogbene gets a squad call up when it all up and running again.

The closest ive seen an international team in recent times having a "club culture" is England. Southgate did very well to install an ethos and team bond with a certain style of play.

Before that it was probably the Spain team that was pretty much made up of the Barcelona side.

Not easy for international teams with rankings like Ireland to play with such styles. Too many players will come from sides that play the darker arts and lump it up at em.
