Good to see ma boy GMS have a good game, got stuck in well, played some good passes, some nice interceptions and transitions and had the assist for Ring. How long is it gonna take before he can play for more than 60-70 minutes without being completely exhausted though :laughing:
Maybe he’s recovering from corona. It can obviously have long-lasting effects.

and the game was over. Cincy climbed back into it,
These two statements don't belong in back to back sentences.

Perhaps I'm being nitpicky (and showing my bias against sports hyperboles and sensationalism), but if the game was over, then the other team shouldn't be able to climb back into it. Especially if that climb only needs one goal.

more like Doyle reads twitter.

but he obviously agrees with the majority of people on this forum and fans in general. ronny's player selection and positions just don't make sense. nor does his sub timing/selection.

Oh, I know that, I was just poking fun at the certain people who are certain he reads this forum.

Once you see that the pundits and everyone else commenting on the same thing, you know there's a problem with a capital R.D.

Sands is out because of suspension this week. Slot Ring back there.
If Maxi is out, I don’t want to see Ring pushed forward. I’d prefer Parks for his late runs into the box or Cacha. Don’t know enough about his preferred position in midfield. His on the ball work makes me think he might be a decent replacement for Maxi in a free ranging CAM spot.
Totally unrelated. But watching Everton yesterday and how they play. They played straight up the middle except for their fullbacks. James and Richarlison played more as inside forwards behind the Striker. Since our width usually comes from the fullbacks, why the hell aren’t we playing that way to start? Play Maxi and Mitrita underneath Heber. Allows you to play your other 3 central midfielders.

because our attack this season is highly predictable with an over reliance on our wing backs. If i were an opposing team, I would shutdown anton and mata/gudi and force play up the middle. Without maxi, this type of play is almost impossible with our current mindset. Parks is unable to step up to make it happen because he's simply too slow with his play (something he willingly admits). Guarantee ring stays at left wing vs NE and we will see Rocha fill in for Sands. Cacha still seems to be at the bottom of Ronny's list. Gudi is already in for mata, and we'll see GMS at the top as Maxi's replacement. Medina, Rocha, Parks in the midfield. Not what it should be, but it will be what Ronny does.

Quick touches and proper runs to break the lines up the middle will create more space on the wings. As the defense scrambles to cover the space, runs into the box for an early driven cross or leading through ball will make us so much more dangerous.

This is how I wish we'd play. Sure, going up the wings from the start now and then is fine too. but breaking the lines up the middle is what causes teams to lose their heads and fall apart defensively. We attack the wings. It's so predictable.

GMS may be the new starter instead of Maxi, but it would be on the RW and Medina inside at the #10. That was the shift after the Maxi injury.

Sure, fair. But you know what I'm trying to say. At 2-0, the team felt like the game was in control and they started to switch off.
