Article Series  The Tactics Board - Cardiff 0-2 Sheffield Wednesday

This article series will look at the Bluebirds' games from a tactical and statistical view. The first match of the season ended in defeat but began with a 4-2-3-1 line up, with Kieffer Moore leading the line, and Bacuna partnering Vaulks in front of the back four. Hoilett and Ojo provided...

Good read that. I don't know what new style Harris is trying to implement but I hope he gets it right sooner than later.

It's basically same as Warnock but with less focus on hoofing it.

Now maybe he's looking for evolution rather than revolution but he needs to sort out service from wide players ASAP.

Got to admit that I switched off halfway through the article. I don't think lardy is the author, but if he is, he has my apologies.

It seems to be that the increased perceived importance of in depth analysis, stats and sports science in general is what is responsible for the production of what QM rightly called "industrial" players. Individual flair has been systematically coached out of the game over the past 20 years and that is why we don't have the wingers who can leave a full back on his backside with a feint or little hip movement, without the need for blinding speed. Forget the step overs, those are for the many one trick ponies out there.

Also God only knows where the tried and trusted body swerve went. :old:

Lardy did write it but he's obviously on the lookout for some feedback. What do you reckon, too wordy? More stats or something?

I'd disagree that individual flair is being coached out. You only have to look at the quality of young players that Wales have had in the past 10 years. I'd say the standard of technical ability far surpasses anything we've ever had.

Exactly right. As I said in the original post, I apologised in advance for the comments.

It's a well thought out and well presented piece and deserving of positive ratings. However, I have my doubts about the way that stats taken over the modern game.

You can prove anything with numbers, but you don't have to be a mathematician to appreciate that there is something very wrong with the way City are trying to play at the moment.

I also have my doubts about stats , you can make the stats make them how you want them

I was just thinking that people need to be enticed into reading wordy articles and hesitate at the look of a wall of text so breaking up the text with some images and stats are usually a good thing for analysis articles like these.

I read this earlier but didn't have time to comment as I had to get the dog from the doggy hospital (long story which I'll elaborate on in the Dogs thread!)

I think it's very well written and will be a great addition to the board if it's going to be a regular thing - well done @lardy.

Good post, lards.

The most striking thing for me yesterday was that we didn't seem to get many crosses in to the box during the game. We've just signed a towering centre forward whose bread and butter is getting on the end of crosses - yet we seemed reluctant to get the ball into him when he was in those positions.

That then resulted in him getting frustrated and coming deep or out wide to look for the ball.

Bizarrely... we played a good possession game yesterday, but I think we needed a bit more of a Warnock approach and get the fecking ball in the box when there's a decent opportunity. I'm not advocating the hoofball tactics we saw under him, but at least the players would get some crosses in from the byline (even though we haven't had a striker capable of getting on the end of them since... shit... probably Helguson).

I'm hoping this will change against Forest, otherwise I'll be looking at Harris to explain how he's supposed to be utilising Moore's attributes.
