Mechanic or the Car?

Recommended Posts

Listen if you buy a new car for 30million and there is a no return policy, yett he car isn't working good, so you give it to your mechanic and he isnt getting the best out of the car what do you do?

get a new mechanic? or

park the car on the bench?

why cant JM instruct the team to play sheva the ball on the deck, why all these long high balls?, why is he always getting the ball behind him, why does he have to come so deep to pick up a pass only to have to lay it off for a better pass? its not working so why not try something new, the man got talent!

and please I love JM i am not saying he must go but i think he can change

I hear what you are saying but he is just 1 player out of 11 ? 9 of the players around him won back to back championships without him so who really needs to change there game ?

Whilst i know we are not playing to his strengths and at times he gets little or no service. the thing is if we change our game for Sheva what does that do for Drogba ?

Just for one second imagine where we would be without Drogba this season icon_eek.gif

If we change our tactics completely to suit sheva it will probably bring out better performances from him, but will it lead to the overall team performing better?

Doing anything to suit Neva Eva Sheva would be a mistake - why would you change a teams tactics to suit an individual who is under performing

Oh, I agree completely... icon_rolleyes.gif

Why would they pass the ball the Sheva on the ground in places where he could score goals from? We don't want goals, do we? Oh... icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

We don't have to change our whole tactical setup, just adjust it a little. icon_wink.gif

Its true there are 11 players in a team and we have won back to back titles with them but to be honest I think had Sheva been here when we won them..i.e when we had Joey, Duffer and Robben in the team with Frank in a more attacking role then he would have looked a different player.

we diddn't win back to back titles playing as we have this season.

Passing some diagonal balls to Sheva or Drogba from midfield or laying some crosses into decent positions should not Hurt the Drogs or the team and if doing it constitutes too much of a change I'd say do it anyway.

The lack of service and Chelsea tactics don?t convince me at all as the reasons for Sheva?s poor performances. They may justify his lack of goals, but as Bonetti also mentioned, how do you justify the fact that he is dispossessed of the ball with the same ease as my granddad is, that his passes rarely find a team mate, , that the Crusaders based the catapult on his first touch, that he is never first to any ball, that he hasn?t been able to get past any defenders, and there are some real bad ones out there, that when he is running with the ball he resembles a very small child chasing a ball, and as he reaches it and is about to bend over to pick it up with his hands he toe pokes it further away from him, chases it again, attempts to pick it up a toe pokes it again even further away and carries on until his dad/mum picks it up for him, in Shevchenko ?s case until a defender gets it off him.

There was a moment against Arsenal and one the following game (can?t remember the team) that for me sum up his performances. During the Arsenal game a pass from the left reached him in the middle of the pitch a few yards outside the box, the ball bounced off from one leg to the another a couple of times and then run away from him while he just stood there helpless unable to control it. In the following game he attempted a back heel and stumbled on the ball.

Having said all that I think he should start against Liverpool.

I can only answer your question with what I believe...Confidence.

there is no other reason a player of his Caliber could lose his touch in such a way.

Drogba had a first touch similar to what you are taliking about but once he had settled he showed that he is plenty good enough.

Sheva is plenty good enough but not if he only gets 15 minutes at a time to get some form.

For my money, it's a combination of both. The shaky start probably was down to a combination of the service, our horrible preseason (which made it harder for him to adjust to a different playing style), and the injury he'd been carrying all summer. Then, after things have been going wrong for a while, he starts having confidence issues, which of course make things worse, and so the problems become self-sustaining.
