....if Zouma doesn’t play we’ll have to defend on our 6 yard box otherwise they’ll run riot behind the back four. See how easily Kenneth Zohore got beyond Keane in midweek.Pickford
Sit deeper and counter down the wings. Gomes plays as the #6, Davies and Gana box to box with orders to wreck havoc.
Siggy and DCL come on for offensive punch if needed, McCarthy comes on to break legs if we go down 3-0.
No way that happens, as Little Marco will 100% roll out a 4-2-3-1 with Siggurdson as the 10.
kinell, didn't even get onto thatCan we just score first for once?
We haven’t drew first blood in this fixture since the semi final in 2012.
And put Holgate on the next train back.Park the bus. Make this one a masterclass in stifling the opposition. Destroy the game of football with tactics that would make Allardyce blush. Contest every decision, grab the ball when it's their throw, wind them up. Don't give them any chance at all to get into a rhythm. Make it so dull that it's last match on MOTD, with three minutes of footage.
Meanwhile Goodison must roar those beauts down and cheer the toffees on from Z cars to the final whistle.
(0-6 to them).
back in the 80's and early 90's when I was a kid, they were THE best game of the year. without question. Loved them, lived for them. Always wanted to go to one. Nearly 30 years later I'm going to my first Derby match on Sunday, can't bloody wait.Remember the days when form went out the window on derby games????? Long gone them
