Maybe this is the game we finally ditch the 3-5-2, go back to the system that brought us success and maybe only reserve it for difficult away games. Basically exactly what I said in Conte's thread. I've also been asking for more Drinkwater, more Pedro and less Bakayoko and more attackers on the pitch.

Thought the lack of tempo was somewhat disappointing and looked dodgy at times BUT given the hectic fixture period and with Arsenal coming up, couldn't have asked for an easier game. Key players rested, a win, clean sheet and good boost for the goal difference. Job done.

If it's not Barcelona away or Man City away or some big European game I don't want to see the 3-5-2 anymore. Conte's negative approach cost us against West Ham. Senseless to be so negative when you have the option of Kante and Drinkwater to protect what is already a back 5. Bakayoko is a project right now. He'll have to wait his turn.

Do you ever have anything positive to say or is everything just shit to you all the time

Morata is lately useless with the ball, he needs to practice, to see the net.
Two useless ones I know of were Lakis of Greece and Okkas of Cyprus.
Speedy types, expensive signings but panic men - could n't do anything useful with the ball when alone with the keeper.
In one occasion, in a derby match Okkas is set free with a clever pass with only the goalkeeper to beat.
But even the commentator was not impressed, his reaction showed he was fully expecting nothing was going to happen.
In the end Okkas fluffed it, straight into the keepers arms as usual.

Now both those men and others similar actually did score some truly remarkable goals but how ?
When they were on the move and the ball reached them at the right pace and there was no thinking involved.
But the real striker must see the net.

In England some great real strikers were Kevin Keegan, Ossie and of course Diego.

Classic example of stikesmanship (Thomas Mavros 1983)
 


Also this, Takis Karagiozopoulos a defender but does it with Olympian serenity:
