Dunno lads if this has been mentioning above if so apologies, the excitement on signing Thiago is thru the roof, and rightly so, Scotia’s analogy is the best yet, ‘A Rolls Royce that can rally’, brilliant that, you cannot ignore those who know him best, Hansi Flick, Pep G, they have worked with this lad and know how good he is,
Jürgen & our own Pep have recognised that his skills are exactly what we need, and probably what has been missing, last couple of seasons we have dominated the EPL employing the high press successfully, and using both fullbacks Trent & Robbo, as attacking wingers but like any tactic sides find a way to nullify it, so a change has to be sought to stay ahead of the rest, so I believe a change of formation will have the desired effect,
4-2-3-1, I think is what J&P have agreed on, not the first time they have tried this of course, it’s nothing new per se, but maybe the individuals used just couldn’t carry it thru, for whatever reason, but bring in a player that has the vision & intelligence to open the tightest of defences, the strongest of parked buses, to break through & get behind them with intricate passing and clever play is I think where Thiago will thrive, now just take a minute and imagine Thiago linking up with Bobby, the flicks & the tricks will have defences bamboozled like slight of hand magicians, and magicians is exactly what they will be, are you getting more excited by these thoughts like I am ?
The options we now have using that formation is unbelievable, in fact we only need to add one component from Henderson, Milner, Keita, Wijnaldom,Minamino, Jones, any of those six can sit in comfortably knowing their particular role, so maybe, just maybe, my madcap three of Fabinho, Thiago & Keita isn’t as far fetched a idea after all, for now though we all sit with bated breath & unfettered excitement waiting for the impending successes.
