Snowflake Royal It's pretty simple IMO.
If you have wide attackers who want to cut inside on their stronger foot because they're inverted, you need full backs who are willing to go beyond on the outside.
If you have wide attackers who want to get to the byline and cross, you want full backs who can cross from deep / cut inside.
Currently we have wide attackers who want to cut inside (in fact one wants to play centre forward) and full backs who want to cut inside. That means all our play is happening around the edge of he 18 yard box and is cluttered and squeezed of space without enough width.
yep pretty much. Would agree with that.
I think Richards can play that FB role - why its been so disappointing that he doesn't seem to be doing it. Yids is a very good fb, but overlapping and crossing isnt his game. Think you can do that on one side, but one of the FBs needs to be able to overlap and cross
