Bellamy didnt play up front mate against Chelsea. He was shunted out on the left hand side. He is a centre forward, not a left winger.
Its the tactics that dont work. Maybe i should have been clearer in the original post. In the 6 games we have lost against the big boys(make that 8 including this season), he has played just one up top. He may have played 2 strikers in some of them, but he has never had 2 up top. I just cannot understand why he is so reluctant to do this?? Is he that worried about the opposition that he doesnt trust the players??
Houllier used to get slated for this sort of approach, yet it seems that at the moment Rafa is doing the same. Picking a team that is based on unsettling the opposition, not a team that is focused on our strengths.
By the way, i dont want to see Rafa go, but he simply needs to understand that his desire to turn us into the premiership Valencia will not work. the players simply do not have the tactical ability or technical ability to make it work. Rafa keeps saying that the players will be frsh after the new year, but whats the fucking point in that if we are 15-20 points behind the leaders??
