From what I've seen of Sarri's Napoli, the FB will go out to challenge the winger and the other 3 defenders will be in the box almost like a3 CB (because they shift to the ball side so much).

That's not the best video of it, I forget which one I saw that showed it in-game.

I think that gap being exploited more on the left vs the right isn't just down to Luiz and Alonso vs Azpi and Rudiger.  That's also Pedro and Kante vs Barkley and Willian

 

His Napoli team without the ball, the defence would be narrow and try make the opposition play in the wings to get crosses in because with Kouliably and Albiol and another fullback when the other one goes out to challenge they would always be favourites in the air because the two CBs were extremely dominant in that aspect and they'd have their sitting midfield player tucked in at the penalty spot. Its interesting because in that regard if the ball comes in from Azpi's side, Rudiger, Luiz and Alonso are all very strong in the air for high crosses. Azpi is a bit shorter, although still solid enough in the air but hasnt got the height advantage (I know this sounds a lot like Mourinho wanting 4 6 ft plus defenders haha) but I think low cut backs will be a big issue for us this season if the centre backs and DM aren't in sync and have that awareness of the space where it could be extremely dangerous, particularly if MF runners are going to come if off the back of Jorginho, Kante and whoever plays that 3rd position.

Part of me desperately want to see the people suffer a meltdown over Jorginho had he gone to Man City and done well under Guardiola. Those same fellas who are criticizing now would be the same ones ba

I'm fuckin ashamed at peeps booing Jorgi. Call themselves supporters. Why the fuck does he get singled out when all the other cunts play shit useless too? Such selective memories of some! I'm gon

He’s made the most forward passes in the PL so this is rubbish. Open up your mind, expand your football knowledge. Learn the regista role and what it’s meant to do, it’s function in a team.

That's what I thought.

I think the cutbacks will be sorted out, i'm not worried.  They've had such little time on the training pitch.  The French and Belgian players have only been back for 2-3 weeks.

I think Jorginho is still maybe not 100% sure of the speed of the PL compared to Italy in defensive situations. Maybe not. Hes not very quick but he should be able to read those things and get in positions to prevent them. Maybe it was just individual errors but it happened a lot. 

I'm more concerned with Luiz in that back line more than anything but thats a different story altogether because as a player he has got a tendency to doze off a lot, which at 31 for a guy whos played for Chelsea, Brazil, PSG, Benfica... shouldn't be happening a lot but it has in his career.

I know we have the results right now, but I think we're only really 50-60% of the way there.  I'm still in the mind-set that we're looking at Oct/Nov before things are clicking.  We're seeing improvements every week.  At the start is was a move or 2 would look in synch.  Against Arsenal it was 20 minutes.  The second half was hard to judge because Arsenal kind of stopped playing and sat deep looking for a draw.  We have a long way to go still.

I know Luiz has his moments.  But, I'm not convinced that Albiol is better and Napoli had a solid defensive record.  We'll get there.  Right now, I'm going to hold off on worrying about personnel (Bakayoko aside, that was painfully obvious).  We need training ground reps more than anything right now.

Was just going to post this. Excellent vid.

I honestly cant believe our midfield at the moment, We have needed creative players of Jorgis and Mats class for such a long time. We were relying on Cescy to give us it and no matter how much I love the guy hes sadly dropped off and we were crying out for a upgrade. Specially in a Sarri team.

Jorgi gives much more than a spot on pass. He's got the mind of a chess master..

And the thing is that Mat K can fill in for him if that need ever arrises as hes got a great footballers head

I had to make my new signature for our 3 wise men. I don't think we fully understand yet just what they are going to do this season!. I think they will be  phenomenal.

Its amazing really I think.

We was expecting the lad to sit at the back with the 2 CBs as a DPM spraying the balls about up the pitch.

When in reality as this full touch map shows the majority of his passes are between the center line and the oppositions box!

But that is because the team was pressing very high against a team that sat very deep. Our defensive line was basicslly at the half way line.

Luiz plus £40m for Laporte please. Yet another board Marina special cock up from a couple years back. SMDH

Mrs Can you actually see Pep taking Luiz on at his age for any money? I'd do it tho.

And I think we were daft not going for Shaw too. Its not that I think Alonso has been bad cause I do think hes holding his shit defensively together (and seeing as it seems Sarri doesn't like Emerson for whatever reason),  but hes fast and IMO stronger in defense. He would come in handy for if we was in front against a strong attacking team.
