Another win :stuckup:
I wouldn't say suddenly, he has always been a very tough one to outmuscle for such a gifted player. It's just that these days he si not diving all over the pitch as he was prone to doing in prevous seasons.Where did Pandev suddenly get all that strength? He's a mad powerhouse these days.
Indeed, packed centrally really well, no room for your nifty little silky players. They are forcing you to play in a way that doesnt do you much good. Because crossing to Pandev or Zarate, who arent really big or strong players with much of heading abilities wont get you anywhere.Lecce are playing smart, IMO - they have packed their center and left the wings more exposed, we push through the flanks but we don't have a real striker to head the ball in.
