He'll be moved on as I just don't think his face fits here under Bruce (pardon the pun!)

McCormack, Hogan, Hourahane, Lansbury.

All attacking players who have not attained the levels of performance they reached at their previous clubs.

Can this be changed or will the attacking aspect of our game next season once again be disappointing.

I think @wilko154 lineup is leaning towards dominating games.

if our security is a truangle of

Chester               Baker

             Jedi

and Bree & Taylor are used to push on (1 at a time) Hogan & McC would be "inside forwards" rather than wide players.

We need to get away from "1 man in the box" mentality or 4 in the box only on corners.

Very much this, against some of the weaker sides at home we should be pushing forward instead of sitting back as we did last season.

Against ALL sides at Home, and against about 15/16 Away depending on their styles to some extent.

Whether we do this will - very very quickly IMO - define our season one way or the other.

I agree with this. It's hard to bench Kodjia though. I was hoping we could see this in preseason:

 

-----------------Hogan---------------------

----Green--McCormack---Adomah---

-------Hourihane----Lansbury----------

As a diamond with Hogan and Jk upfront that'd work.

Id say preseason will be as vital for him as anyone! Bit of added pressure for him to deal with.

I think we will know fairly early on what the crack is as Bruce won't stand for his garbage if he's still got an attitude. Which is a very good thing IMO.

I can see what you mean... but I think players have a duty to their team to 'buy in' to the way a team works and plays. I doubt Benteke really wanted to be tracking back for corners like he always used to, but he did what was necessary. I don't want this to be another Bruce out thread though, so maybe we'all leave it there? :)

completely agree.

Maybe McC took exception to being told to be on the bench and seeing himself eventually overtaken by Gaby in the pecking order. Then to cap it all when selected being hoofed at or ignored when making good movement and being in good positions, which is what he was bought for.

One doesnt buy a plough then tell it to be a combine-harvester.

regardless of the factors, divorce, alcohol, faulty gates and skin-growths. I would, in the same position, be furious and would not accept it.
