|Are we going to play 442?|
at 21:41 27 Jul 2021
Every game I’ve thought we were only doing it because we were short of the attacking midfielders and wingers to play 4231, but suddenly we’ve only got one pre-season game left and we haven’t played our preferred system yet. Unless we are?

Mine still says ‘sign in to your account just before the match starts to access the streaming channel’ - I have re-signed on about 10 times!

If you've been to any of the England games so far, how does the Covid test thing work? Are they just handing them out outside? Or do I need to go and get one from somewhere? On the Uefa website it says they're free so I presume they just hand them out but it's not super clear.
Also, how does drinking beer work when you have to wear a mask everywhere except in your seat, and you're not allowed to drink in view of the pitch?
|I honestly think we're making the same mistake again|

We're giving the manager so much power that he could set us back five years - much like Hurst did.
A lot's been made of the new structure but where's a Director of Football who has the power to oversee recruitment?
PC's record so far in his career is obviously brilliant, but he's never been responsible for this kind of overhaul before. Not many managers have.
It goes without saying that I hope this works, but it's a huge risk. And yet again we're staking it all on one manager's opinion rather than making sure every decision is part of a long term vision.
|Looks like 442 out of possession|

And 433 in possession. They hadn’t had a sniff until that goal - really encouraging performance imo.
|Bit worried about the back of our midfield with Downes off|

Love Dozzell and Bish as players but neither can defend - as shown in that Plymouth break right through the middle of the pitch.
I’m guessing Skuse isn’t fit enough to play 60 minutes at the moment, would have preferred to see him instead of Bish tbh.
|442 vs 433|

We know Lambert was told to play 433 last summer, so I thought it was interesting that up until yesterday he was playing Parrot (who I think most people would say is a number 9) behind Norwood and calling it a 4231, which I imagine is an acceptable variation of 433 from ME/LON’s perspective.
But yesterday Parrot looked like he was playing right up alongside Norwood and Lambert called them ‘the two up front’ in his press conference, making it a 442. Is this because Lambert knows he’s going and no longer cares what Evans thinks?
|Was it 442 or 4231 today? |

Spared myself from watching it. Phil and the BBC described it as 4231 while a few others called it 442. Quite a funny climb down if it was 442! Didn’t know Parrott could play as a 10 if it was 4231.

Watching the highlights reminded me that he was one of the few positives on Saturday. Was so unlucky not to score.
Think many on here were too harsh on him after the Swindon game. Not saying he’s ever going to set the world alight, but he looks a decent option at this level when fit, imo.

Very good on FM 20 - and that was a lovely ball too.

I was having trouble recognising our players and because the game’s not being covered on the BBC I wasn’t sure where to find a list, so I’ve made my own based on the commentary. Apologies for any spelling mistakes!
|Have Huws and Lambert fallen out?|

Bringing Lankester on to play in midfield with Dozzell and Judge when we're trying to see the game out was insane.
Crewe might not have pushed us back so much if we'd had a bit more balance. Really weird decision for me.
