Because we can't even do zonal marking right. Their first goal was because of Henry ball-watching and standing there. If he was marking Terry properly (ie. man marking), the pasty git wouldn't have got near the ball.JKris said:If it is zonal marking, then why is one zone always empty of your players? one of the opponents only seem to need a run to open up your defense on dead ball situations.
Exactly, when he is in the team, he allows Vieira to get more forward and as you said he snuffs out any danger. I love Cesc but when he plays Vieira has to do so much work and this season he has not been up to it. Unlike Gilberto, who covers so much ground.khimik said:Well, Gilberto is always the first player to get his head to the ball at a defensive set piece. It's what he does on the pitch too - cutting out opposition attacks before they happen. It's not a flashy role but someone has to do it.
it wasn't zonal marking, Campbell was clearly man marking as was Kolo, it's just the rest seemed to be neither zonal or man marking, some of them were even marking no-one far away from the goal not doing anything.JKris said:If it is zonal marking, then why is one zone always empty of your players? one of the opponents only seem to need a run to open up your defense on dead ball situations.
