The proper apportionment of blame – Aust vs Scot

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 8:56 pm

I don’t particularly like the group of players that gets put out on the park for the Socceroos. 
Jedi – Valeri axis in central mid gives you nothing going forward.  Rhys Williams, can fill in at fullback but clearly isn’t one.  Neill and a more mobile partner in CD, maybe.  Neill and Og and a high line?  Impossible. 

I don’t particularly like the formation that is used.  A 4 – 4 – 2 with wide players who look to tuck in / come inside.  Stretched out, not really staying deep and looking to counter, nor playing high and pressing. 

But the thing I really didn’t like watching Aust vs Scot was seeing that group, in that formation, go out and not come anywhere near executing their game plan.  A team, no matter how crude in talent, can go out and execute a game plan … do their jobs, be smart, be hard to beat.   

The group that went out there and played so poorly all know each other, all know their roles, and have played better in other games.
