Could you be what the villa need?
Every article about managers seems to be about how Eck should be shot... I mean... sacked..... or who our next manager will be. But to lighten spirits, how would any of us do as a manager?
Yes, most of us will be a better appointment than the ginger nut shell but how would we do as a manager? Despite having no training in an academy. The idiot managed to do it, so what about any of us.
Me, I would get the team to play an attacking style of football, no matter who we are against. I play a short, fast paced style. I would use the wings to cross in or for the wingers to cut in and take a shot. I would want to have lots of through balls. I would like passing in space to create time for themselves. I would like my forwards to be poachers, not target men.
So... My tactics and line up. 4-4-2 attacking.
Given in goal with Clark and Cuellar in front, Herd on the right of them with Lichaj on the left. In the middle of the field, Gardner paired with Ireland. N'Zogbia on the left and Albrighton on the left. Up front, Bent and Agbonlahor.
The tactics. I would want Herd to play as a defensive-winger whilst Lichaj being our fullback. Clark will be the limited defender whilst Cuellar will be the marksman, the one getting his head on the ball and the hard tackler. Irelend would be the main man in the middle sticking in the middle making passes to support the strikers and wingers, not to run up and take a shot. Gardner, he would be our Gerrard. He would be running up into dangerous areas, making vital passes across the box to free man to put in the back of the net or to take a shot. N'Zogbia, he would be used as our Messi. Taking players, cutting through the defense and either putting the ball away or passing to an open man across the box. Albrighton will be used to whip in supreme crosses in dangerous areas. Bent will be waiting in the box, where he is best, to put his foot behind the ball on a low cross or taking on the keeper from a through ball. Agbonlahor will be the one that finishes low crosses, high crosses and taking defenders on to pass to his partner.
The captain will be Ireland as he is the one that can visually organise the team, he will tell players to pass into certain areas or to a free man. The player taking direct free kicks will be Gardner, second man for this will be Albrighton and third will be Ireland. Indirect will be Taken by Ireland, second favourite will be Albrighton and third will be Clark. Penalties, first choice will be Bent, second will be Ireland, third Albrighton, fourth will be Garner, fifth N'Zogbia, sixth Agbonlahor and seventh will be Clark. Free kicks will be Albrighton as the primary taker, second will be Ireland and third will be Gardner.
So, what would you be like in the hot seat? McLeish, eat your heart out.
