Pendant can't hack it

At this point let Tarek play there and just ask him to defend

Pendant has been up and down - its' the sort of thing that may have to do with match ups, but I haven't really seen a pattern (haven't looked much either).     Same with egbo, but he seems out be more of a general head case.  

 

I wasn't happy to hear Shep talking about Yearwood carrying defensive duties so CCJ could move forward in the attack.    I thought Yearwood's biggest strength was his box-to-box ability.   Having him stay back seems like a huge waste.     For all his limitations, we are so disorganized without Davis.  No one one else seems able to fill that role - not Valot, not Yearwood, not Rza.

Pendant is very uncomfortable on the ball in tight spaces and its more of a processing where he can pass issue, than his inability to hit a ball.  Worth a shot to sell Kemar, get the GAM and try for a non TAM replacement, but Pendant is replacement level right now.   Yankee Stadium is the worse possible place to have him play.  Would love to combine Tolkin and Pendant lol. 

 

This game though was very weird, and part of me doesnt want to read too much into it, and just put it down as a bad performance.  Under Carnell we havent had many of those.  Scoreline was worse than the performance also.

Why is Tarek currently riding the bench?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

He's  a CB, only pressed into service out wide when necessary.    Pendant hasn't sucked for an extended period, and before that we had Egbo looking like something special.. until he wasn't.

Duncan and Egbo may be another option to try. Pendant seems to be getting worse.

Yearwood should not have come off! Thought him and CCJ were working out.


RED. BULL. OUT.

Duncan looked way better on the left when they tried it than he ever looked there previously.

Pendant looked horrible. It's desperate times... Parker and Long work better in the middle and definitely should be the starting CBS.. Tarek is the only other option... Sit Pendant. Egbo isn't special but I'd rather have him over Pendant...

Tarek has played wide... He just needs to be asked to defend better than Pendant and just need Tarek to stay back and if anything him staying back helps the CMs as they know they don't have to cover for a left back that goes forward... They know that if they lose the ball three will definitely be a defender there.. And allows the CMs more room for error and more freedom to press higher or press harder in the middle block stance that NY has adopted post Jess Marsch .. And if the attack runs through the right of the formation that takes the pressure off the left mid to defend but instead try to make runs into space to attack.. If a high pitch turnover happens the idea that Yearwood sitting deep can win back the ball and drive forward and at worst Tarek has stayed back to slow their attack and hopefully force their attackers to make a negative pass instead of passing forward
