Everybody is different. My personality is different from yours. Yes I do have frustrations with Poch and his tactical approach. I disagree with your Dele argument, and that is fine. Using examples of ex-pros is by no means me trying to gain some kind of credence. It was sharing that it is not only I who thought that. Maybe it is because of my background why I come across the way I do. But I am in no means trying to excel a status to get anyone to agree with my opinions.Feel free to stick to it all you want but you would be wrong. If you had frustrations with his tactical approach then that's fair for any fan to have. But just because you have those frustrations doesn't mean you have a valid point.
Perhaps you just didn't understand the rationale behind it. I can't be sure but I think that is a possibility.
This appeal to authority with the 'pros' claim is foolish. Most pros in general, and English ex-pros in particular, wouldn't know sound tactics if they bit them on the arse. English football in general is the least tactically developed of the big Euro leagues and it was worse when your so-called 'pros' played. All you have to do is watch a game or two from elsewhere. All the modern tactics in the PL come from foreign coaches so, again, your appeal to the authority of ex-pros falls flat. It wasn't so long ago when folks like you were saying "so you know more than Poch" when folks criticized him for the same things we see now and the laggards are finally recognizing.
Defend your point and defend it with what you know not fallacious arguments. If you got a problem with Poch then fine but don't couch it in some lame argument against valid tactics because 'ex-Pros' agree. Tactics are tangible, available for all to see, and can be debated. Mirroring may be tactics 101 but it is sound, seemed to be effective on Saturday (would have been more so if Ndombele didn't get hurt), and should have happened earlier. But removing Dele from the 10 wasn't the problem by any stretch of the imagination and that was one of your 'frustrations'.
we were 1-0 up at the time. Winks was on. We needed to wall the midfield with a bit more protection, by moving Sheff United around a bit more, causing them to not have the avenues on the flanks that they did. So taking off Dele is ok, but should of bought Sess on. I would of taken off Aurier, or Dier (who were their extra players) and put Foyth on at RB, instead of Aurier. Dropped one of the forwards into midfield, which Dele could of done, as he played that position at MK. Or taken Dier off, bought Toby on. And dropped Dele back as o said. Or take Dele off, and bring on Sess. Various options I would of gone for.
I hope that makes sense.
