Liverpool just walked through our defence like we were not even there.

Aside from Guaita, i would encourage Croydon-Roy to try to revitalize our back 4.

On at least 4 occasions, we weren't.......

the weaknesses in our defence have often been hidden behind the defending work being done by attacking Eagles.

Eagles whose real job is scoring goals at the other end of the pitch.

Back four played like strangers today, particularly in the second half.
Liverpool's finishing was clinical, but Palace players weren't marking or getting caught wrong side.
We do look more vulnerable defensively this season.
This may be partly attributable to the fact we are playing in a more attacking way.
I hope we don't go back to playing 10 behind the ball just based on this freak result though.
It's not that long ago that Villa beat Liverpool heavily so it's better to keep a sense of perspective.

We all wanted attacking football but our defenders are so toilet and slow that they have to be protected by 3 defensive mids. He will probably bench Eze now after a chat with Parish saying "i told you so"

Pardew would panic.
Pulis would panic.
Hodgson will hone the side.

We will achieve the desired points we need to be able to play Liverpool again next season with a more cohesive defence, everyone understands we have issues.

A zimmer frame has four feet. soft to grip the ground. And slow moving.

our back 4 were incurring the commentator to sing the praises of Zaha and all the good work he does in defence.

And again, Guaita seemed a hero for how many shots he stopped.

so what is our crisis in defence ?

is it the fellas themselves or is it the failed manner of organising them ?

I admire your single mindedness. I am wondering just how bad it will have to become for you to have a change of heart.

Dann has never fully recovered from the ACL injury a few years ago. He was never fast, but age and injuries have caught up with him big style.

He was also completely out muscled for the 2nd goal too, so all in all a terrible performance v Villa.

Cahill's hamstring is now a constant issue and he is 35. Tomkins is younger but again cumulative injuries have had an impact and his movement is also slow.

So 3 of out 6 centre backs are not fit for purpose.

Kelly is injured, Sakho is Sakho and so Koyuate appears 1st choice.

Pulis had far worse players and just as good results. We were solid in defence, played on the counter but the main difference was that we practised set-pieces.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

time has suddenly caught up with our central defenders and defensive midfielders - we looked spoilt for choice for centre halves not long ago, and apart from jairo we have no playmakers in deep midfield (Schlupp and Eze play up the pitch), only 'ratters': the two macs, luca and kouyate (I'm not counting Meyer as playmaker or even a player). PVA is irresponsible, Ward is only OK, Clyne is still on his way back and we bought an injured teenager as back up. We have taken our eye off the ball with certain positions, identifying strikers and wingers as the priority, the club do groom replacements from the youth and under 23s, Mitchell is still learning but he is solid with a great attitude, but I haven't heard of any young centres back knocking on the door. Big clear out needed in the summer - so much high salaried deadwood now at the club. Our defensive problems are usually rectified with Roy's 7-0-3 formation, but all that closing down seems to be tiring our old boys out.
