What do we realistically expect Sampson to change?

Players?

Formation?

Style?

With the limited number of fit and available players I'm not sure it's going to be a revolution, more a gradual change over time, if he's given time.

I'd like us to retain the ball better by passing it more on the deck, but do we have the players for that? My fear with Revell on the coaching staff is that we'll play 'his' way, chasing balls into the channels for 90 minutes, which lets face it hasn't worked so far.

Hope we see a bit more of Cowley alongside Newton now he appears fit, but beyond that I've not been too upset with the starting 11 Dino has put out. I'd like to see more of Carter maybe, he hasn't convinced me yet but he's been in and out.

Who do you want to see more of (and less of)?

Formation change to 442

Whoever is fit and available and is the best in that position, no more round pegs in square holes.

Style, a winning one will do, worry about playing attractive football when we have a bit of confidence and wins under our belt.

1. I would like to see this lot fit/released from solitary confinement, then I think we might begin to discover that we've assembled a decent squad of players this season.

2. I would like to see us press like we did in the second half on Saturday without enduring 45 minutes of aimless hoofball first. And what WAS
Newton doing on the right hand side of midfield when he came on (see 3)?

3. I would like to see Newton start every week. He is, by a distance, our most potent striker.

4. I would like to us utilise the attacking potential of Luther Wildin – the only player we have with real pace.

5. I would like to see everyone give the new guys a chance. Revell in particular strikes me as thoughtful and articulate.
Just because he was on the receiving end of hoofball doesn't mean that is the way he thinks the game should be played.

I like Newts on the right side of midfield. He isn't really your normal striker. Having him on the right means he can scare the crap out of the full backs plus cut in and shoot.

like you I would love to see more of the ball played on the deck, and even take the ball to the by-line before crossing. rather than always hoofing it up to Guthrie who flicks into onto no one or loses it

That has been our down fall of late, teams playing the ball on the deck and crossing from near the dead line, thus causing confusing in the box

I would like to see wing backs bombing up the line rather than stopping at the half way line

so overall

Good post. Ideally we want to see an improvement of the quality of football we’ve been playing. The hoofball has to stop. We’ve got some really good players technically and I want to see us get the ball down and play more.

I actually think Sampson might surprise a few people with his tactics and which players play where. As a coach you can’t pick the team and set out as you would like, that’s the managers job. Now Mark is in the driving seat I think there will be a lot of noticeable changes. The big change for me is game management. Under Dino there were times in games where his game management was poor. With Mark, his experienced managing under the spotlight, under pressure on the world level.

Very excited to see how we play under Mark.

I think, in fairness, the overall standard of womens football increased dramatically in the 4 years from 2015 to 2019.

In 2015, multiple teams were betting absolutely obliterated. And even the better teams were still quite poor.

In 2019, although USA still seem to be ahead of everyone else, the gap is much smaller, and, the overall quality of the rest of the teams is much better.

So yes, PN did worse with a better team, but I also think his better players were competing against much better players.

I actually really like both managers. Sampson showed that he is tactically astute and Neville's rotation theory was an excellent World Cup tactic, IMO.

I'd agree with that, did enjoy watching this world cup and the quality has certainly improved (goalkeepers still need some work).

Is relative tho, in any era you've got to beat whats in front of you.

Yes it has improved greatly....the biggest problem is that the height of women against the height of men......most men's keepers are 6ft plus, where as there's not many women who fit that category.

An argument could be made that they should use smaller goals.

They use lower baskets and smaller balls in the Womens NBA.

I was slated for suggesting they literally lower the (cross) bar for women's football by 15-20% for this reason, as women are 15-20% shorter than men on average.

I can’t really say I ‘miss’ Dino as such, but slightly against the run of play here, does anyone think he was sacked too early - even by a handful of games? We’d started scoring again, some of the play looked promising, he hadn’t had chance to bed in some of his newer signings... I might have liked to see how the next 4/5 games shaped up.

Anybody??

I think it was a close call. If we hadn't conceded the third goal at Cheltenham and got the draw (at least) our second half performance deserved, he would probably have got a bit longer. Two home wins and the pressure is off.

But overall I think it is the right call. He has had long enough to put his stamp on the way we play. When he came I thought he would at least make us hard to beat, but that hasn't been the case. And until the Chair Effect we had gone backwards from Sarll's second season. Mainly it was dull stuff.

He also seems to have issues with too many members of staff for it always to have been them rather than Dino.

Agree, to an outside observer it would appear matters off the pitch haven't been a great deal better than on it, and that probably factored.

Phil actually binned Smith a little sooner than I'd expected, as we'd just dicked Sheffield United 4-0 the week before.
