Would like to see a settled side against Livi but wonder if we will go for some height in the middle. The first and second ball will be in the air a lot hence the head knocks last time. Think I said for another game I would put big Goerge just in front of our 2 center backs to deal with the bouncing ball. If we can snuff out the initial physical phase of the play and give it to our footballers we should be okay but we must match the physicality or it could be another nervy watch.

Tav Goldson Katic Borna
Jack Davis Kamara
Morelos Kent.

i like that thinking TJ

i’d be happy with that edmundson is also comfortable on the ball so can sit deep midfield and dictate play.

Av got a sneaky feeling he will play same formation as we have always done.

Would think we will try and play our usual possession football, if we can do this we will be in control. Teams can’t hurt us if we have the ball.

The problems is they hurt us physically the last time, Aribos head smashed in, hospitalized and out for a few weeks, I think Goldosn and Helander had busted noses. Possession football or not they will be in our faces. I for one don't want to loose any player to injury through their poor play and tactics particularity our game changers better to have some sort of protection. let's face it the refs don't protect our players but quick enough to book someone for petulance. Livi know if they try and play football they will be owned so we know what's coming, why bring a knife to a gun fight, get big George on.

We were actually lucky last time at livi. They should have had a couple if i remember right. balls straight down middle of defence.

Do we play our most physical players then? Change our tactics? Turn it into a battle, see if we can beat them by being more physical? 🤔 naw.

I think your missing my point. They will be physical and keep the ball in the air as much as possible. They will try and win all second balls and turn us over and hope for set pieces high up the park. We must counter that by getting to the second ball and then getting it on the deck and to our good players further forward. If we don't have a ball winner in the middle then how can we put together forward play. Our midfield will not win an areal battle with their taller aggressive players. Porto played a similar tactic on Thur by putting big Danilo in front of the centre backs to great effect, he won most of the ball and instigated most attacks it was only when buff was asked to man mark him in the second half we gota bit of joy in the final third. Livi don't have a buff so we don't have to worry about that. What i'm saying is just a minor one player tactical tweek not a whole sale change in formation, squad, tactics etc. let's face it though what do I know sweet FA. let's just hope for a comfortable win and no injuries. Would like to see George though, LOL.

is buff not about a foot shorter than Danilo, sorry i don't follow your point then.
