Norwich indoors it is.

The tactics board is common sense but of course we are trapped in 1986 tinnitus  nightmare where the only song playing is Genesis’ Land Of naffin’ Confusion. 

The facts of the matter are that Bale drifting diagonally in just clogs up space that Rafa and Modders could be using to far better effect. 

fig.1=Bale crosses from the left, fig.2=Pathe News Boy feeds the hungry with neat through balls, fig.3=Lennon crosses from the left.

I’d bin Arry and install Pleat. Millions and millions of pounds worth of players and a manager that either doesn’t know what he’s doing or he doesn’t care.  The crowd yet again had to instruct Arry and after a few rounds for Azza he came on.  

Arry fans point to the mid table mediocrity we’ve endured in the past. I remember those years and have no desire to return to them. But let’s try and do at least a passable impression of intelligent people here. Yes we’re doing well, but despite ourselves. And what have we to fear by wanting to upgrade the tactician? A child could tell you what’s wrong, yet brain surgeons are telling us we must not unsettle the squad. I guess losing a 10 point lead didn’t unsettle them at all…

Bale is bugging the hell out of me (had you noticed?) and so I ask you this. Look back at his best moments and tell me where he was. He was on the bloody left.

Walker needs to focus on being a good defender. I don’t care how fast he is. What the hell has that got to do with the price of fish? Benny’s useful going forward, but his crosses haven’t had Barca or Real clucking. 

Norwich are no fools and I sincerely hope Arry engages his brain before sending out the troops.
