(Forgive my MS Paint Skills)
As I’ve implored you earlier Dom, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The Quakes used another 4-3-3 set against an Orlando team with only three wins on the season. The Quakes even went a man up when Brek Shea was shown a red for a studs-up challenge on Sanna Nyassi. Yet they struggled to score goals as their natural #9 forward Wondo was playing behind Nyassi, and generated just one shot in the game.
My question to Dom: Why? The 4-1-4-1 was working so well! Yet now you seem more determined than ever to stick with a broken system than go with what works.
Based upon stats I’ve gathered, the 4-3-3 with Wondo at mid is the worst-performing formation this season. Here are some per game averages:
Dom, we are averaging less shots, shots on goal, goals, chances, crosses, and set pieces. I told you back in April this was a broken system and should be abandoned. If I can’t convince you, hopefully yesterday’s performance was your wake-up call.
