I know Laurent and I rarely agree but I do agree that we should be taking attacking fullbacks. That's how you counteract having a midfield that lacks creativity (look at Liverpool for example, though they also have arguably the best creative striker in the world in Firmino). Right now the Netherlands are literally picture perfect in the sense that they should be taking queues from how Liverpool play. The only different being they have the potential for a much stronger central pairing but no real option to play the Firmino role. Fill the midfield with runners, press high up the field, look to create transitions and quick passing to open up counter attacking or incisive opportunities for Promes/Memphis to score. I'd set up like this to follow that formula: Diks - de Vrij - van Dijk - Willems Wijnaldum van Ginkel - Vilhena Promes - ??? - Memphis To be honest I'm struggling to think of who to put in the middle. It needs to be someone that is creative, not necessarily a goal scorer, and with a high work rate. I would even consider someone like Klaassen or Fer as an unconventional 'false 9' so to speak. Maybe Afellay or Toornstra? Either way you funnel the play through the wings and fullbacks and look to transition quickly or rotate the ball if the other team is sitting back defensively. Goodness I really wish Lijnders would do double duty and work for the KNVB. He'd turn this team around quickly I think. Anyway, kind of a lackluster performance. I'm glad Memphis is back in the fold and I think with him and Promes together we'll continue to improve offensively. It's just finding the link to utilize those two.
