We struggle against teams who park the bus and give us posession. We are a very good counter attacking side. Fulham are incapable of parking the bus, but are good going forward when given time and space. so surely our best tactics were to deny them space and catch them on the break? Tactics seemed to work pretty well to me. I think west ham will be more defensive next week so we'll probably have more possession and have to break them down. We'll see.

They worked superbly, we won. You're inarguably correct.

What I would say is that this is how we play every week no matter who the opposition is, so I'm not sure it was a tactical masterstroke.

Not saying it was. But you were complaining about possession stats in this game, not others, and for this game the tactics were right.....

Possession, more than ever this season, is a measure that is of absolutely no value when assessing whether or not a game of football will be won. Just talking about us, there have been countless games that we've lost having had more possession than the opposition, and most of the games we have won have been with less possession than the opposition.

I hate watching teams simply passing the ball across the centre line and am much happier watching our team try to play incisively albeit risking the ball when they do it and losing possession some of the time.
