  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread We are an awfully coached team.
    I saw your post earlier and I'm not saying that this can't be called a pattern, but when this does not encompass an efficent movement of the ball to the right side, then it does not help much. I posted this earlier: We have mainly tried to...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread We are an awfully coached team.
    It is difficult to discern particular patterns that encompass the whole team, but one can see that a team got an idea on how to attack when the players are efficient on the ball. That is, they know what they should do with it; pass, dribble, move...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread We are an awfully coached team.
    We have "patterns", but if this is down to previous knowledge from the managers, the players prefered actions or the input from the manager is difficult to conclude. What is easy to conclude is that the "patterns" does not include many players or...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread We are an awfully coached team.
    To be fair, we were actually able to pass the ball with intent and efficiency far better than we are currently doing around 2000-2007ish. Especially against lesser teams. And this was at a time when the focus on possession, passing patterns etc...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread 'Pep' Guardiola sack watch.
    From an objective pov, they should get Odegaard as he is the one most likely to be able to do David Silva things, and they should get Haaland as a successor to Aguero. Jesus is decent, but he is not a goalscorer. And KDB needs help.
  • One is a world class finisher and the other is a world class chance creator. Getting them on the same team with a possessionoriented style of play could be a great/deadly fundament for any team to build around.
  • Being subjective: I don't want him to fail or getting the sack. Being objective: There are few, if any, indications that we are going in the right direction.
  • The problem is that both Rashford and Martial are clearly best (most attackers are) in counter-attacking situations and together with the rest of the team are clueless when playing against a team allowing few counter-attacking opportunities. It...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread Premier League Gameweek 9.
    Against a compact defense he is not a top player. On the counter however...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread Books Fantasy Reads.
    Expecting that they will expand on the macro plot when the main protagonist gets stronger. Makes sense. Ten Realms book are already under consideration. Just need to get/make the time to prioritize them. Will see if i'm not able to squize some...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread Books Fantasy Reads.
    Finished reading the third installment in this series yesterday. Just luck that it came up in my goodreads rec. So, third book is, from a subjective pov, much better than the second book. IMO the author should just put the second book as a...
  • What tactics are people running? Seems like any custom tactic takes like 6 months to integrate. And if you are possession-oriented it will be impossible to get the team to press similar to a high/gegenpress, despite these two covering different...
  • Can he coach players to pass and move in the buildup? Yes. Can he coach a cohesive press? Yes. Can he improve players? Yes, albeit some stories about rigid and repetitive training. All well and good and aligns well with parts of how the best...
  • Fosu-Mens replied to the thread Marco Rose | Gladbach manager.
    The time for that was after LVG. I've not seen much regarding BMG under Rose, but I've seen some games and he seems to be flexible and most of his players seems to know what they should do. So already multiples better and more relevant than our...
  • His ball hogging is made worse by that we have no cohesive understanding (pattern of play, systematic approach on how to progress the ball) among the players in our team. Everytime he gets the ball he has to attempt to find players to pass to...
