Do you fit your squad into your favoured formation

or

fit your formation around the squad available to you?

I asked this directly to Bobby Williamson when he washibs manager at a q and a with the fans (that would be a good idea for phb or would have let the fans onside longer)

I'd think a competent manager deploys a system to maximise the potential from his squad.

Heckingbottom is incapable of doing so.

I remember reading an interview years ago with Ian McCall where he said that he had a simple philosophy when selecting a team. Find out what positions each and every member of your squad is most comfortable playing in, and play them there.

By what we've witnessed so far this season, PHB plays his favoured one forward/striker.
It would seem he's not going to deviate from that at the start of a game.
That leaves players playing out of their favoured positions/ positions most suited.
Hes chopped and changed every game. I havent checked, but I doubt we've started with the same 11(injuries aside) any 2 consecutive games.
As for his pressing game?
It doesn't exist.

I like him. As he says every week on the radio football isn't complicated. Coaches like Heckingbottom make it so.

Look at the players, build a system to suit.

Getting a whole host of players to switch and play your style, your roles and your football takes time.

I'd sack the wingers for now, 4312, Stubbs style.
