    • West Ham v Chelsea
      Friend and I were talking and we just can not figure out what formation/who should play tonight. We both agree Chalobah, Bats, Terry should get time. I hope aina will find a role. Do we continue with 343/352? does he revert to 4 at the back for a game to keep us flexible? Do we go stronger team for reasons @Tomo mentioned above? does he rotate? I WANT ANSWERS! lol  4141: Aina Terry Cahill Azpi            Mikel Willian Chalobah Oscar hazard           bats 343: azpi    Terry     Luiz Aina Chalobah Oscar Alonso Willian    Bats   Hazard 352:         Azpi     Terry      Luiz aina Chalobah Mikel Oscar Alonso        Bats     RLC

    • The Conte Thread
      Conte is a lot more astute tactically than Ancelotti, who in my view is somewhat over-rated as a manager despite his 3 CL titles. Also Conte has another advantage to Carlo back then, he doesn't have a set of players so set in their ways, ultimately every manager between Avram and interim RDM had to revert back to Jose's tactics as that was all the squad knew, even Wenger or Pep would have probably conceded defeat and reverted back. Antonio on the other hand has a squad that can still go any which way in terms of style of play, and a squad still young enough to learn new tricks. Having said that there will be counter tactics to the 3-4-3 sooner or later and i'm worried that it might be sooner with Claude Puel to face on Sunday, he produced a masterclass at The Etihad and totally outfoxed Pep, he knew exactly what moments to press and exactly what moment's to sit back and that got them the goal and a well deserved point. But when the time comes it's up to Antonio to keep making those tweaks (whether that is another formation or tweaks to the tactics) to keep the opposition on their toes and make it hard to predict what we will do from week to week.
