I suggested what I'd do, not what I think Rodgers will do, I'm pretty sure he'll go with an unchanged team.**** me Simpson and Fuchs in the team?? And then play Ricardo and Chilwell out of position??
Drop the most creative player too??
Go three at the back??
And you lot said Puel was bad and too defensive!?!
If Rodgers has had meetings with the staff and senior players, and watched our last few games, what would all that be saying to him? Firstly, that we're conceding too many goals too early on in games. Secondly, that we're too vulnerable at set pieces. Thirdly, that the confidence levels are wobbly for several players. And so on. It will be interesting to see how much he just focuses on the mentality and energy levels and how much he actually changes the way we set up.
I think anyone would agree that Maddison is hopelessly out of form and that Gray is a hot/cold player at best. Yes, one scored and the other got an assist on Tuesday but that wasn't normal. Gray's goal on Tuesday was his first goal at the KP since Dec 2017. Our most creative and threatening players by far at the moment are Tielemans and Barnes.
I agree that 3-4-3 would suit our players best. However, Rodgers hasn't played that system much in his career and it's a heck of a leap to walk in and change that much, that quickly. It's not the right match to experiment in anyway.
Watford are a strong side that are very good out wide and get balls into the ball a lot. They've also scored quite a few from set pieces recently. My solution retains our best players form wise and gives us more experience and defensive solidity.
