i think the big man wasn't at his best up top today dont get me wrong he still held the ball up well but wasn't his usual dominant self,then bang put him in CM and get vellios on and we score twice...great win for blues and a real statement against the fashionable cock-e-nays i just noticed they've lost 6 games this season if only even 2 or 3 of our draws turned into wins,we would be head n shoulders above everyone in 3/4th
If he plays CAM against Stoke we play right into their hands, simple as that really.
This. Love to see him drop into the middle and maybe slot ossie behind Jelavic.. can't see him moving Ossie though, but imo it would work down at Stoke. Ossie wasn't at his best today though so if he was dropped and Vellios came in I'd be made up
People have been saying this for weeks but shot down by a fair majority! "Fellaini's on form" "top goalscorer" "not why Jelavic isnt scoring"
Its obvious that it doesnt work "all the time" wit him up top. I mentioned him not flicking on any of the long balls. As soon as Velios was on he started to flick the ball on... Success. We looked better in the middle aswell. Osman was carried all game.
yeah but good sides have a better chance of nullifying him, and suds are a pretty decent side. The problem comes for other teams is when he is kept quiet that we have other players that can ruin a side. We are off form at the mo but someone is going to get a dicking this season.
CM is his best position for sure. Moyes hasn't twigged that the attacking mid slot is best filled by a creative player though, somehow. Every other team has figured it out like. Jela would be on far more goals.
