Shades of england don’t you think? High press that gets passed through, huge hole in midfield , defence exposed with essentially 5 marking 3. When this worked best last year we had the legs of Fornah and Camara. This midfield way too lightweight.Half time 2 down. We had good chances, especially early doors, Ennis missed a sitter from 6 yards.
We press very high which is a new tactic, Hardie and Ennis push right up against the defenders and Mayor and Grant push up right behind them and it's worked a few times and we win the ball. The problem is when Swansea beat the press with a ball through the middle and suddenly Swansea are running through the space at Randell and the back 3.
Hardie is playing well, full of running.
Randell is good on the ball, he sure can pick a pass but struggles with the physical side.
