Does anybody know what Slot's rotation policy is like?
Does he tend to try and play his strongest 11 or does he like to rotate and keep players fresh?

Good question that Shipley.

I think its hard to compare what he did at Feyenoord to what he will do in the Premier league though mate.

Same as i think its going to be even more difficult to rotate next season with us being in the CL.

Last season we were making 8 plus changes for some games in the Europa compared to the league.

I agree, other than the league cup we are unlikely to make any wholesale changes but I like to think that we have enough depth that if he wanted, we could make a couple of changes between league games in the midfield or upfront (I'd ideally like to see a settled back 4)

It would also depend on the players he has, I would think.

I think most managers rotates their team don't they?

08 Jul 2024 12:54:50
JK, might actually end up being a good thing that. Although I'm happy to let the fringe players and young lads have a run, in hindsight I'm sure the constant chopping up of the team can't have helped the players gel and find a good rhythm.

LBR agree on that mate. Seemed to work in the past when games were coming at us thick and fast and majority of players were going game to game.

Just need to have luck with injuries.

They only play one less comp. in Holland compared to England so it won't be that big of a shift, IMO. Like someone said, it depends on the players he has and the type of squad (quality, numbers, balances or unbalanced etc. ) that will determine things, IMO. In other words, we shall see.

We need to play a settled 11 in the league. Play the kids in the domestic cups. When klopp won the league he played the kids in the cups, same when we won number 6.

I think the best option is simply to wait and see. Aside from the players at his disposal, Slot will have to learn the EPL and each team, as well as the toll it takes on his players as the season goes along. Every coach goes through an evolution of learning for every league he is in. The tactical Jurgen Klopp of the beginning was very different from the tactical Jurgen Klopp at the end.

Not sure to be honest but I think I saw in one of the Dutch football papers that he usually rotates clockwise but has been known to rotate 1 or 2 anti-clockwise.

Perhaps he might, just might, pick teams that he think will win the next match?

WDW, you misread the OP's question. It was about Slot's rotation policy, not direction. Surely, Slot prefers his players to rotate in place, rather than in circles? Conservation of energy and all that?

Slot is an advocaat of the Windmill rotation.
