I think by his "philosophy" he means a certain way of thinking about the game, moving as a team to either open up or close off space and so on. In practical terms, he seems to want, when we don't have the ball, holding a high line and pressing high up the pitch to retrieve the ball. With the ball, I think he basically insists on the lads playing with their heads up, having the confidence to welcome and hold the ball under pressure, and ideally the confidence to beat your man.

That is, to invite pressure onto you so that the other team opens up spaces, rather than bypassing the pressure with long fast passes forward. That's my reading of it anyway.

We finished outside of the top 4 last season. A repeat is unacceptable by any measure, as there are financial/commercial pressures and not just footballing ones.

What would you do if you were him? I asked this question yesterday and you didn't answer it. I'm genuinely curious.

Yeah I think that's right, which works well if you have;
1) a strong defence who can soak up pressure, and
2) quick forwards

We have neither! Even Falcao isn't particularly quick.

I've watched him in about 3-4 games perhaps in Atletico and he's very quick. I don't know if he's slowed down over the last 2 years.

I hope so Dozer, because we have no pace or anyone with the ability to beat players in that final third. As strikers that is.

From what I've seen of Falcao, he looks to have quick feet in the box, but isn't particularly rapid over the ground. I could be wrong though.
