Muttley, fair point re. crossing regardless. When you think about it, it does seem pointless adopting a playing style that encourages the full backs to get forward if, once they get there, they don't cross the ball.

Critical, good point re. collective breaking at speed. I thought we'd turned a corner after the Stoke game where we scored at least one goal from breaking in our own half and in the blink of an eyelid the ball was in the net.What is also missing this season is the intensity of our forward players' pressing. How many goals did we score last season by dispossessing opponents in their own half and scoring from the turnover of possession? Quite a few that I can remember. But I can't remember a single goal scored this way this season. In fact we very rarely dispossess opponents in their own half now. It's more about closing down the space than pressing the man in possession.
