Really? How many? From what I remember, we suprised Chelsea with it and beat them , can't remember us scoring a load of goals, otherwise surely we would have stuck with it.

Finished last season like it Leicester 5 Brighton 3 Huddersfield 2 Stoke 2 all with Eilf and Andros up top

I for one wanna see us revert to the 442 system we played against Leicester last season at home with Wilf & Townsend up Top running all over the gaff, causing utter havoc.

Meyer can come in on the left where Loftus-Cheek player and Mccarthur on the right. Kouyate and Luka in the middle.

The thing I liked most about that system was it was so interchangeable and fluid in attack, throughout the course of a game. And allowed Loftus-Cheek, Townsend and Wilf to rotate and really get creative.

So far this season, in my opinion the football we’ve reverted to playing has been utter dog s***. Yet in the system I refer to, with no recognisable striker, we played some of the best football we’ve ever played.

High intensity, intricate, exciting, a nightmare to defend. All whilst having 2 banks of 4 when defending, so not easy to beat either.

Bring it back Roy.

Totally agree Meyer will have to play the RLC role

At the beginning of the season I hoped that this wouldn’t be the case, but at the moment Zaha and Townsend do look the best option as a front pair.
I have some reservations as Loftus Cheek is unavailable with his power and skill down the left to get us up the field and don’t know that Schlupp, Mcarthur or Meyer can fulfil the same role.
However, neither Ayew nor Sorloth seem to suit our way of playing and Benteke is woefully short of form when fit.
I’ve discounted Wickham in the near term at least.
We must be one of the only clubs in the premier league with 4 non-performing strikers.
For the record I don’t think Roy will revert to Zaha/Townsend as a front two because of the negative impact on the existing strikers.

Going with Wilf and Andros up front gives a space for Meyer.

This would seem the best solution.

Bit harsh on Sorloth, may have played 9/20 games, but how many minutes did he play? A player, especially a young one from another league, needs z run of games and personally I think there's more chance if him scoring goals after a run in the side, than Ayew, who really doesn't seem to suit the way we play.

You must be watching a different game to me. Ayew was decent against Newcastle. Sorloth looks like he’s won a competition to play premier league football. So, so out of his depth.

 


Vive le Roy!

Unfortunately I agree. That run down the left when Townsend just looked at him as if to say where the f*** are you going sealed it for me

Whilst I agree on Sorloth and am not suprised to see that a striker who failed here in Holland can not cut in in the PL, can I ask you what made you think Ayew had a decent game? There was some "token running" when Newcastle was in possession but when we had the ball he was a static as Benteke without the areal presence.
Think Meyer showed what he can bring in his substitute appearance, movement without the ball and wanting the ball while looking for forward options. Agree we should go with Wilf and Townsend up front. Have seen enough of center forwards not contributing, not just in goals but in play as much as in lack of scoring.

Unfortunately I can't see Ayew scoring too many goals. In the 2 games he's started he's looked nowhere near a goalscorer. Has gd even had a shot?

But that's not his game at all. He's a passer who relies on his technical ability rather than physical attributes - he simply can't burst forward with the ball like RLC because he doesn't have the strength and pace.

You have to wonder if there's a big disconnection between Roy and the transfer team, because instead of getting an RLC replacement who can carry the ball down the left and therefore fit Roy's 4-4-2 system, we've bought a big, dynamic midfielder who plays through the centre in Kouyate and an intricate little passer whom Roy is struggling to fit into the team at all.

But that’s the point with a player like Meyer. His technical ability will more than make up for his lack of physical attributes and power. It will potentially bring us even more with the ability he’ll have to link up with Wilf and Townsend.

He changed the game against Southampton when he came on and played a similar role. Same as against Watford. He and Wilf down that left will cause teams absolute nightmares and the system will afford him the license to come centrally too.

He was playing far too deep yesterday when he came on. That’s where, in my opinion he will be less effective.
