Who knows what Vertonghen was doing in that game...he was baffling. I have no problem with a RB/LB pushing up the pitch but you have to get back into position. He was just everywhere.
AVB hasn't impressed me. He seems far too rigid in his tactics and gameplan and isn't encouraging the players to just play. Again, that's what it looks like to me. He needs to let the creativity flow if you will but have the correct players on the pitch. From what I saw, having both Sandro and Dembele on the pitch at the same time would, I think, create enough space for players like Paulinho, Lamela and Soldado to be offensive players and maintain the ball in the final third of the pitch. I do think though that someone in the MF needs to help the move towards goal. Eriksen while a very good player, looks very apprehensive out there.
