This is where I think progress might be quite slow. If we want to dominate possession and territory for longer periods of time, we have to also press higher. Personally, I have no issue with the mid block we use when we are at our best which allows us to trap them in spaces to break out of and counter attack (Jonny is particularly excellent at this part of our game) but when we do that at the moment it's incredibly passive and we look a little confused. Our best spell of the game came when we stopped them playing out from the centre backs/though the middle, and we played the game in their half.Thanks for this, dead interesting and the line about Nuno being caught between two stools really resonates.
I think it's clear on occasion he struggles to reconcile his natural conservatism with the progressive direction he's set us on, and you can see that in some of the players too.
