- Reaction score
It's like i was saying after the Arsenal game though it's not a tactic it's just an inability to get around the press because of the players reluctance to do certain things or not being capable of doing it. There's lots of things we could do but we don't seem to do any of them often enough.we're abysmal versus the press, and this new tactic of the wing backs playing it back to kilman or saiss when they are by the corner flag for a hoof is stupid. We are just inviting pressure and giving up possession. It is rank.
Any team playing us knows, press and we struggle. You'll recover the ball and create opportunities.
Also total agreement with punts - why we get the ball forward, or an advanced throw in and pas back to coady and/or Sa is also pointless. We give away the advantage constantly.
Has to hit the target though, had he done so at least he forces another block or save and potentially a deflected goal. He shouldn't be missing the target.
This is true but its up to the coach to set us up so we provide more and better goal scoring chances.Whatever we say though it doesn't negate the fact we just don't have a proper goalscorer anymore. Like Bruno says we have no one to cross to, yet we still keep putting high balls in. Until that situation is remedied we won't be able to move forward. Maybe in the summer we will get someone.
Maybe not, but we can only go so far in the system we are playing. I'd be happy to continue with 3-4-3, but with better players who can actually play the way Bruno wants (but if he had the players he wanted we wouldn't be playing this system anyway so it's a moot point).I don't think a back four is the silver bullet people seem to believe it is. Having one fewer defender isn't going to turn say, Podence into a massively effective creative/goalscoring force, look at his career record.
We went to a back four near the end yesterday, made no difference as we still didn't move the ball anything like quickly enough, still don't have people who attack deliveries from wide properly, still have too many players on the park who are seriously limited in an attacking sense.
As both you and Slink have said, on paper removing the 75% rule should help but in reality it doesn't. I rarely go to away games anymore as 'myself' or get to sit in the away end for that matter! I know this isn't at all the clubs fault but missing the drawbridge being pulled up when I was attending all the games anyway still really irks. Mainly because I know who's fault it was...They’ve removed the rule thay AST must attend 75% of games (or just buy tickets and sell them on) to maintain the privilege. So that may mean there will be a little more trickle down.
More likely they will still be bought for mates, but there is no real solution here.
In all fairness my mate doesn’t have any loyalty points beyond ST and the cups but he regularly gets a ticket to come along. If you really want to go theres always a way, but you’re obviously not going to be able to tickets for a group.
It won't be through the club it'll be through SM, buying someone elses ticket. On paper the same 2.5-3k go to every away gameAs both you and Slink have said, on paper removing the 75% rule should help but in reality it doesn't.

Please get your mate to tip me off as to how he's getting tickets though with just home ST points - I think only twice has it gone that low to my knowledge!
PuntsWolf's post suggested to me their mate got tickets via the club with a home/cup ST points only on many occasions. This is what I was querying as, barring two exceptions, I don't think I could have done this season. I'm well aware of the SM selling of them or via mates and while it's not 'fair' I do take advantage of that myself or I'd never get to go in the Wolves end. At most places it's just easier to go in the home end and not having a Wolverhampton address helps me to a certain extent with this [as well as registering on their website well before our games].It won't be through the club it'll be through SM, buying someone elses ticket.
