My concern with AVB - is that he is too stubborn with his 4-3-3 ideology (or whatever else it gets called these days) - We look turgid in that formation. (Who else plays it in the EPL? Anyone? I honestly don't know - as I see little else apart from Spurs games from Spain).
Back in the day it was Drogba up front with 3 from Robben, Duff, Cole, Lampard etc behind him.
These days its Torres up front with Hazard, Oscar, Schurlle etc behind. Only difference is that their midfield has more flair than the old one but to all intents and purposes its the same system.
The next 4 games are a real tester. I appreciate the squad needs time to gel but to stand any chance of making the top 4 we need to be coming out of November with a decent points tally.
