Conceding this many goals in the preseason is worrying for sure. There's something in our defending which is just not working.
It's at least different to Conte who stacked our box everytime we lost the ball. We defend in around the same formation but we defended much more furiously back then. Also the amount of sudden giveaways destroys us somehow these days as we aren't prepared to take those counter-attacks.I'm convinced this is a result of Inzaghi's system. He leaked goals by the bucket at Lazio.
Yeah, what irritated me most last season was the slowness of our game. And based on the preseason, we've done nothing to it. Slow, predictable. I understand the ball cycling and finding the openings with care, but then, we shouldn't indeed be so vulnerable to opponent's counters. It should be part of our toolbox to detect the spots on the pitch where we can lose the ball and act accordingly in advance to avoid counters.This was a shitshow. We are so slow and predictable, and in the same time very vulnerable to counter-attacks. Gosens and Dumfries are basically the same player, and we have no creativity on the flanks. It's strange that we have zero creativity in the midfield as well. Lukaku looks isolated and uninvolved for most of the time, which is troubling. I hope that this is just a moment form and Inzaghi's Inter to be quite different, but i don't have a high hope.
