I think there's a chance Tuchel won't rotate as much as we want v Barnsley as it;s our best shot at a trophy.

Maybe... I still think top 4 is his remit from the club

Mount and Werner shd be rested agst Barnsley.

Kante,Zouma, Havertz and Tammy shd start

I wonder if we go back 4.

MOTD commentator saying it wasn't a penalty agst Werner

yeah but thankfully Shearer was having none of it in the analysis

I found the Werner knocking pass the keeper a bit weird, most people knock it front of them and then get the foul.

I thought the ref didn't give it because of that.

Good thing VAR cleared it up.

More realistic to knock it goalward in that situation

However it did look a bit like Werner had knocked it too far to actually retrieve it with the covering defender there

I don't get why he did it, other than a lack of confidence, to be fair if he had knocked it past the outside of the keeper I wouldn't back Werner to score from the angle with a defender rushing towards the line.

Just find him a strange player lol.

He was standing next to the corner taker for all the corners. The one time we played it short to him it just went backwards!

His interview was funny too

The fancast host was saying he spoke to Kerry Dixon about it and Dixon said it looks like pure confidence issues with Timo

I hope we don't stick with 3-4-3 for too long.

Soucek’s red overturned. Crazy how incompetent the refs are

Don't think Tuchel trusts the defenders in a 4 and probably thinks we'll get exposed to counters if we switched.

I recall Mike Dean on VAR giving Watford a pen against us because Jorginho touched him

He's an awful referee and it feels like he wants to be the centre of attention while officiating

Good strikers get in the box and look for the header to score

He wouldn't be the first... poll and clattenburg come to mind

posted on 8/2/21

Said yesterday back three has potential for us. Just need one of the wingbacks to be an actual forward. Means we could easily switch to a back four when you have James/Azpi, Silva, Rudiger and Chilwell on the pitch.

True but Clattenburg was a good referee so I could accept his ego.

Maybe could work if James can be a RCB.

It does also mean we can't play both Havertz and Mount.

Don't think James works in this system tbh.

RCB you've gotta be switched on defensively and he isn't.
RWB you've gotta attack the opposite fullback, pin them back and he doesn't do that either.

posted on 8/2/21

James has played RCB many times before for club and country...at youth level. Suits him a lot better than wingback

& not unless Havertz plays as a forward. Which could actually work in tangent with Werner
Werner runs in behind, Havertz drops deep. Could make it very difficult for the oppositions defensive line.

I really liked the Havertz and Mount midfield three idea though if Tuchel is brave enough.

Kepa
RJ AC Zouma Chilwell
Kante Gilmour
Ziyech Havertz Pulisic/Cho
Tammy

I'd go with that v Barnsley

Long term - if Kante returns to form and we sign Alaba?

Mendy
James Silva Alaba
Hudson-Odoi Kante Gilmour Chilwell
Mount Havertz Werner

Yeah I can envisage something like that. Could easily be a 3-5-2 or move to 4-3-3 & 4-2-3-1 as well.
