A mixture of zonal and man marking is fine. Oscar shouldn't be man marked which looked like he wasn't. The only reason Agger 'had' Oscar was becasue he was standing square in the middle. I'm not sure what Lucas was doing. If you have near post then just stay on the near post. He wasn't even in the picture for most of it, then just came out of nowhere.kwala said:That is the problem. Agger had him then didn't. Did he pass him on to Carra? Did Carra know he was passing him on? What are our 2 CB's doing dealing with Oscar in the first place? Surely Lucas, Downing or Coutinho are capable of dealing with him? If players were designated players to mark, stupid shite like this doesn't happen. Even If we set up Zonally, someone has got to be told to attack the near post. What was Lucas doing? He was near post, and than ended up Behind Reina? Was it man to man? Zonal? A mixture of the 2? IT WAS UTTER MAYHEM.
I don't think our defenders have a clue what they are supposed to be doing at dead balls, and we concede at an alarming rate as a result. The best signing we can make this summer is someone to sort out the defence. We will get nowhere conceding soft goals week in week out next season either.
