    I've just watched Marriott's goal back again. Bloody hell, that's ridiculous! It's an absolute screamer, the first touch, the technique, everything is perfect.

    There weren’t actually very many negatives - just a couple of big, frustrating ones. Namely that the goals were completely of our own doing and that we lacked in the final third.
    Everything else was okay to good. Bar Malone, the defence didn’t put a foot wrong and distributed calmly and effectively. The midfield were there to receive it and made the right choices in the middle of the pitch - and that’s why we dominated possession.
    Malone made two catastrophic errors which is why we lost, but he wouldn’t have made those errors if he had a winger close to him. Lack of width is a problem for us at the minute.
    Waghorn wasn’t an outlet tonight and the wingers spent their evening doing convincing impressions of an out of form Gary Teale, but it’s not all doom and gloom.
    I genuinely believe we’re on to something. Get the ball out wide, get Marriott and Holmes fit and be patient with Dowell and we’ll be competitive. Anyone coming back from tonight with a long list of things wrong is looking for trouble which isn’t there.

    just 'What he said.'
    I didn't listen to him pre-match or during it. I listened to him post-match.
    What a refreshing change it was to listen to an ex-player (or player for that matter) speaking complete sense about a match that he had watched. He was mature, calm, measured and precise in his points. No laddish banter, no mangled words, no contradictory rants, no showing off about himself and his past exploits, no pointless aggression - just wise words.
    It is a shame that we haven't had the benefit of Eric's wisdom over the past few years as things have unravelled after Christmas. I'm sure that his wisdom would have been helpful when we needed it.
    Long may it continue. Thanks Eric.

    Well he's clearly a tidy player, with decent control, he can bring a ball forward in midfield, he has a decent eye for a pass and previously scored a reasonable amount of goals in the division for a midfielder. One bad game doesn't make him a bad player.

    FWIW I didn’t think Dowell had a great game today but some of the posts on this thread are pretty immature and hardly appropriate re personal insults etc.

    Really glad, though, how flexible Cocu is in terms of his system. if you can shift between 4-3-3 ( and it's variations), 3-5-2 and whatever else, you always keep the opposition guessing. can be a way to get 2 up top, too.

    When a new manager is appointed with a long contract and a brief which includes developing academy talent, fans rightly say he needs time to implement his ideas on a squad he knows very little about but for some, that goes out of the window after one or two indifferent performances.
    We're 3 games into a new season and are unbeaten so it's a decent start - no more but no less. Cocu will know far quicker than fans what's working so far and what isn't and I will back him to sort out what isn't.

    People banging on about Marriott starting are doing my head in. He missed nearly the whole of pre season, and yet people expect him to start our 4th game of the season. These armchair managers are hilarious. He’ll start when he’s ready.

    Yet we've scored 2 and should've scored another as well. Shows how misleading basic stats can be at times.

    For all the "Why isn't Marriott starting"; he'd offered very little in his performances before today.
    That was proper Marriott when he came on today. Finally made a real case to displace someone in the XI, I hope to see him start on Tuesday.

    I like it. 
    It's important to get that identity set in stone and get a settled team playing exactly how he wants. Then you can introduce players into that and they can show if they offer more or less to the team. 
    Bielik wasn't fit for last week and then played a full game on Tuesday so maybe Saturday came too early. 
    Marriott also, wasn't classed as fully fit when the season started and played the full game. Showed signs of rust (as has Waghorn but he's been fit) 
    Just a sensible safe line up. Dowell needs to settle down. Lowe is the best choice at RB if not an ideal situation for him or us. He's a good player that just needs games

    LB_DCFC reacted to TibshelfRam in Bielik: Defender or Midfielder?   
    Think he will be used as a midfielder and certainly hope so.
    Spine of Keogh and Clarke with Bielik in front will make us incredibly solid. It will also give the full backs license to fly forward as he can drop in to form a 3.
    My feeling is that his solidity will also allow us to play two more attacking midfielders in the central 3. No need to play Evans or Huddlestone alongside him - go with 2 from Holmes, Dowell and Knight - and Rooney when he arrives.
    He's the holding midfielder we've needed for some time. Solid, good in the air, defensively sound, big, strong, composed, able to pick a pass, able to hold onto the ball, creative. Got to be DM in a 4-1-2-3 for me.

    You need to create chances to score goals. I love marriott, but there's a reason not many clubs have a pure finisher like Marriott up front anymore.

    Just think waghorn is more of a Cocu forward. Generally much better in the buildup than Marriott is (wasn't on saturday mind) and presses himself also, and isn't a bad finisher himself. Also he was injured for a couple weeks of pre season, and has only just made up that time missed now. Don't think there's any sort of conspiracy behind it
