It`s Back to Basics?
Or, in other words, what we know gets results.
After a failure, for the fourth Premier League game in succession, to get a much-needed win, Roberto Di Matteo`s after match thoughts, from the Hawthorns, seemed to indicate that he may be contemplating abandoning the attacking philosophy that has proven to be so entertaining this season with the boss remarking,
"We might have to go back to how we used to win games, and make sure first and foremost that we don`t concede."
"Maybe it is a time when I have to change things in terms of selection and the way we play. Maybe we sacrifice the attacking options to go a bit more defensive."
"These are massive games now but we have players who have been through this before."
Here, in the editorial chair, all I`ll say is that if that defence isn`t tightened up then Juventus (a) and Manchester City (h) are going to be, to put it mildly, uncomfortable.
