New formations pending... 12:35 - Dec 3 with 713 viewschrismakin

"“It's a very fair question, are we at the stage when I need to change the formation when we're winning?"


Yes is the answer PC. Maybe we should have tried that in previous games...


I'm not sure why youd get to a certain stage before thinking about it. Surely the amount of times opponents have changed their shape you'd think maybe I should too..

So what stage is he now referring to? 2nd half of season in isolation?. It's not something I've ever seen a manager say before.

Believe it was in response to "what do you want your players to do when 2 nil up" and he was saying does he have to change the formation to be more defensive once we are in front to see the game out

I wish someone would tell him that when we are 2-0 up sustitutions are not compulsory.

Bizarre statement from Cook though - plenty of manager adjust the shape of the team 4 or 5 times in game to cope with opposition. It sounds like a relatively new phenomenon to Cook.

I was just listening to Ralf Rangnick's first man utd press conference and he said this,
"You always have to adapt your style or idea of football to the players that you have available, not vice versa".

I think Paul Cook should have a listen to some of his ideas.

I think the point he was making was that are we in a situation where we shut-up shop when we're 2-0 in front? It's not the way he aspires to play.

To be fair, I think the reason he changed it was that we were struggling in midfield from a defensive perspective. Whether it worked is a different matter, of course.

Was that the game where he put Evans in the 10 role?

He didn't really do that as far as I saw it, he put Evans and Fraser ahead of Morsy who was in more of a holding role than he usually plays.
